really awesome I just got a $ 829.99 iPad2 for only $ 103.37 and my mom got a $ 1499.99 HDTV for only $ 251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37" HDTV to my boss for $ 600 that I only paid $ 78.24 for. I use BidsNé

Matt, I have ran Vista on 5 different computers with various network cards, not issues. I have also ran Vista Ultimate (RC1 & Beta 2) under Parallels with XP as the host on three different computers. I had no issues, however when using my Inspiron 9300, the "Centrino" wireless did not work.

Ted: Hi, did some checking for you and here are the sys requirements for running Parallels on a Mac. Support on any 32 or 64-bit Intel-powered iMac, Mac Mini, MacBook, MacBook Pro & Mac Pro Tower. It looks like it is an Intel kind of thing. But should you wish to play with Linux some form, you could always take a trial version of Parallels Workstation for Windows on a test drive? ;)

Hi Matt, I have installed Vista on at least 10 different computers, Dell, IBM and my own clone which has a Realtek RTL 8139/810 NIC in it. So far I have had problems only when I am on the domain at work. It finds the NIC and allows me to put it on the domain and hits the Internet after I install the proxy server settings. I had no problems with instlling at home, it worked first time. I am curious about the Paralles program as I also have an iMAC running OS X.3. It would be interesting to try Vista on it, of course it is not an Intel MAC. Will Paralles work on that platform? Thanks, Ted

Fred: At first, I could not for the life of me understand what you were talking about. Parallels does indeed, run operating systems as VMs. But then it occurred to me; you must be on a Mac, hence your point about Boot Camp. So you are probably talking about this. As you can see here however, Parallels on Linux is more VMWare-like. We do not have the transition into a "single OS" as the Mac version offers. So in essence, you are right, but for another OS than what I am using. ;)

Matt, I mean no disrespect; but I don't think Parallels is meant to run an OS. It can run some % of programs that run on windows (albeit slowly); but no the full OS. That's what Boot Camp is for.

Matt, I have ran Vista Ultimate and Win XP Home as a dual boot. Also have ran Win XP Home and Ubuntu 6.06 LTS as a dual boot. In either case, a Netgear GA311 Gigabit PCI Adapter (RealTek) was used and a LinkSys 10/100 NIC with accompanying drivers was also found to work well. I did not try these setups w/wireless. kingfyre
