Dear Triple-click Home Team,

I am a vision impaired university student and would like to share my experience with using Windows on my MacBook Pro. For the most part Windows 7 runs the best I’ve ever seen it run on any computer, probably because it’s running on a Mac! I use both Boot Camp and VMWare Fusion 4 when working in the Windows environment when I have to. I only need to run Windows in the first place because of my Transformer, long/short distance viewer.

One thing I would like to note about running Windows on a Mac is that a Mac battery, 7 hours, will be cut down to a Windows battery, 2-3 hours when running Windows on a Mac laptop. Of course one wouldn’t have to worry about battery life reduction when running Windows on a desktop Mac, but because I am a student, I need to be mobile.

One last thing I would like to note is that even when running Windows directly via Boot Camp, my MacBook Pro really heats up more than it would ever when using the Mac side of the computer – probably due to the intense graphics processing and operating system structure. Also, I noticed a few times last year that I got the Blue Screen of Death when directly running Windows. So i have to be careful not to put it to sleep to often when in the Windows environment, especially when I’m just seconds away from needing to use it in class.

Overall, in my opinion, I believe Apple handles the Windows environment really well and just to know when one wants to use the Windows environment, their going to get a Windows environment.

I would greatly appreciate it, and even more important, I believe a brief summary of this email would be good to include in the next Triple-click Home podcast for others to take note of.
