Vegas on a Mac Book Pro

With the release on Boot Camp it seems that I'll be able to run Vegas on a Mac Book Pro.

I presently use both Apple and MS computers but I prefer the Mac OS over XP. Has anybody tried to use Vegas (or DV Rack/Ultra) on an Intel Mac yet?

I'm curious about the results.

Spot, what are the differences, and would the Mac be a good choice for road editing?

Too early to tell, as far as I can see. So far, runs good. Only spent about an hour with it, too much going on for me to get deep into it. I may have time later this week. All indications up front suggest it's going to be fine.

any follow up

as far as anyone now that it has been around a little longer has anyone had any good or bad experiences using Vegas on a MacBook Pro? and is a basic macbook enough for some basic on road editing or is the faster processor needed? What are the advantages if any of using it over a PC laptop like an HP


Intel® Centrino® Duo mobile technology with interrelated Intel® Core™2 Duo mobile processor T5300, Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network connection (802.11a/b/g) and extended battery life capability
2GB DDR2 memory for multitasking power; 533MHz frontside bus, 2MB L2 cache and 1.73GHz processor speed
SuperMulti DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support records up to 8.5GB of data or 4 hours of video using compatible media; also supports LightScribe direct-disc labels using compatible LightScribe media

17" WXGA+ high-definition widescreen display with BrightView technology and 1440 x 900 resolution

160GB Serial ATA hard drive (5400 rpm)

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 graphics with 256MB video memory HDMI interface

QuickPlay music and DVD buttons

ATSC/NTSC TV tuners with PVR (personal video recorder); S-video output and HDMI interface;

4 high-speed USB 2.0 ports for fast digital video, audio and data transfer

Built-in 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN with RJ-45 connector; high-speed 56 Kbps modem

Weighs 7.7 lbs. and measures just 1.6" thin for portable power; lithium-ion battery and AC adapter

the HDMI is nice, and the price is at least 1000 less than the macbook pro, but it can only run windows and the mac can run both which opens up FCP as an available option. Anyone have any advice?
