Today, Walt Mossberg reviewed the new MacBook in his column for the Wall Street Journal. His verdict? He’s a fan. Walt liked the new trackpad, especially the integrated button in the trackpad.
But he also really liked the power of the MacBook. He thought it ran Mac apps great, but even better, he thought it ran Windows applications great too, using his favorite way to run Windows on the Mac: VMware Fusion 2.
Walt tested the MacBook with Windows XP on VMware Fusion 2, and talks about using Outlook and Internet Explorer side by side with his Mac apps. Worked great in his tests.
Here’s Walt’s video review of the new MacBook:
And for reference’s sake, here’s Walt’s video review of VMware Fusion 2 from a couple weeks ago.
