MBP Performance while running Windows?
My wife uses a MBP as her everyday computer. She enjoys using Microsoft's Publisher software and unfortunately, they do not make a Mac compatible version. We're debating installing Windows on her MBP with Boot Camp solely for her to use Publisher.
For those who have Windows installed on their Mac through Boot Camp.... have you noticed any loss in performance in the Mac overall? How about its performance while running windows?
We're just trying to gather information to see what we will be getting ourselves into. Thanks!

Re: MBP Performance while running Windows?
I run Windows in a VM and it works great. I'm not a fan of Boot Camp unless it's absolutely necessary. With that being said, you should not have any big performance hits.
