Tom@s, you might want to take a look at this thread, and reconsider the MacBook Pro you don't have. As for viruses, anything other than Windows would be an improvement in that category. Currently, there is 1 (minor and easily avoidable) trojan for OSX; there are no viruses. Leopard is now UNIX-certified (on Intel hardware), which should also be of some comfort.Tom@S wrote:i would like to try new leopard but---1.i have no macbook but asus book

i like it how it is looks like,HW needings etc
and how about viruses?it is somethink line linux or are some viruses on mac OS?
Autodesk doesn't make a Mac version of AutoCAD, but MacBooks can already run Windows, so it shouldn't really matter. Driver problems? I wouldn't know, since I'm not running Windows on my Mac. There's probably a few. The reviews I've read on Windows performance on Intel Macs have been overall very positive, and I'm sure most of the bugs will get addressed by Apple software updates over time.Tom@S wrote:i have inel procesor but no mac book.I never use others OS like windows (i dislike linux) but this leopard i like on first site.What about drivers wich i have for my notebook?Will be there some problems.ANd still is here that autocad software...
My point about getting a MacBook Pro was that it would be a faster alternative to what you already have. If you're happy with your current notebook, keep it. The new MacBook Pros come with 200GB HDs, so space shouldn't be an issue. OSX Leopard is now 64-bit, and it properly supports multi-core CPUs, so you'll notice a big speed increase. Boot Camp lets you dual-boot Windows (Macs can dual-boot Linux, too), but a program like Parallels Desktop would save you the hassle of doing that by letting you run both OSes side-by-side. Again, there is no Mac version of AutoCAD, so you will have to continue using Windows if you really need that program. Boot Camp and Parallels are both fairly easy and (mostly) hassle-free to install, once you've done that they're nearly idiot-proof.Tom@S wrote:but if i want new OS why should i install again win in?I have only 80 GB HDD it is only 14,1" notebook not desktop and i need autocad for my study.I heard somethink about bootcamp(or so i dont remmeber the original name) and there i can put win in it.But i am not sure if i want to try somethink new because i want make thinks easily and than install again winz
