If you are a longtime reader of this blog you may have seen the debates in posts and hundreds of comments, surveys, and requests/demands from many users for native Mac solutions when I mentioned we supported Apple Boot Camp and virtualized solutions like Parallels and VMWare Fusion.
I absolutely love my Mac hardware and now have 2 MacBook Pros. I consider myself as a multiple platform gypsy. Yes, I really do believe when I walk into a room with my MacBook Pro aluminum unibody laptop everyone looks at me like I am much more cool, than I really am. After a few years I realized there is no single perfect platform, yet having a Mac and PC allow me to use the best of both.
Question: Have you made the jump to the sexy, shiny, sleek Apple hardware? Why did you switch? Are you running AutoCAD for Windows on your Mac in a virtualized or Boot Camp solution?
