    Alas, I am still "classic" Mac: 17" iMac G4 1 GHz and a 12" PowerBook G4 1.5 GHz.

    I won't be upgrading to the cross-dressing Mac-Intel until at least June '07.

    I bought a MacBook Pro 15" 1.83 dual core and love it. I also had a TIBook 400Mhz, 12" Ibook 800Mhz and a 12" powerbook 1.3Ghz over the past 10 years. Love OS X, just wish it had more support.

    Thats a shame... Hopefully someone will get it working (or maybe we'll see a specific client for the Mac?)

    Yeah, we shouldn't be forcing a Mac through a window.

    The real problem here is RIM not developing a proper DM for Mac.

    Just because you can put low-grade leaded fuel into your car doesn't mean you do.

    I use Parallel or BootCamp depends on the environment I'm working at for a true PC environment on my MacBook. Both work like a champ! Sure beats the day of VPC for the Mac...

    Had the same problem with parallels, couldn't get bb to connect via usb. If anyone could tell me how they got it to work that would be great?? Using boot camp and getting sick of restarting
