      Why bother when virtualbox (http://virtualbox.org) is free, and runs Windows 7 perfectly and FASTER than Parallells? :)

      Having spent a bit too long playing with an iMac in the Apple store on
      Saturday - I'm nearly convinced that it can be my next desktop.

      Would the "base" 24" model be fine for development (4Gb RAM, 2.66Ghz
      Core2Duo processor)? And I presume that installing a native dual boot
      would get me best performance? Also I'm assuming Windows 7 would
      install no problems?

      Cheers.
