Q: How did you install Media Center onto the Macbook, when Apple’s documentation says it isn’t supported?
A: I used a single Media Center 2005 DVD to install from, rather than 2 CD’s. Basically, I copied the bits from both CD’s to a folder and used Nero to make a bootable DVD. I’m not sure if I’m going to keep MCE on it though, because I would like to join a domain (which MCE doesn’t support) and use this as my primary laptop.
Q: How on earth do you right-click in Windows, since the Macbook has a single button?
A: Install the Apple Mouse Utility. This small (15k) .exe enables ctrl-click as the right button. Priceless.
Q: Try Vista yet?
A: Nope, not yet. Looks like it should work, but I’m concerned about LDDM video drivers. I think i’ll hold off until I see some "official" driver support.
Q: Crash yet?
A: Yup. On the Macbook under Windows XP, do not click on the USB Camera. It blue-screened for me.
Q: How fast is it?
A: I ran 3dMark05 on my 2ghz/2gb RAM Macbook and received a 3DMark Score of 2872. To compare some other notebooks, check out the chart in this review for other dual core notebooks. Initial results show that it’s faster than the T60 which received a score of 2092 and the Asus V6Va which got a 2530. The Acer Travelmate 8204 kicked the snot out of everyone though with a whopping score of 4157 (which is interesting, because it has the same X1600 256MB that the Macbook has).
So all in all, I’m pretty happy with the setup.
