What are the con's of Nuendo 4 on a Macbook Pro?

Howdy folks,

I've been a PC user forever. I'm currently a Nuendo 3 user, but recently got the upgrade to Nuendo 4. Most of my music is audio with a handful of VSTis (BFD2 for example).

I'm kicking around some ideas of getting a new Macbook Pro for greater mobility. I also am curious about some other DAWs like Logic, Pro tools etc.

What are the downsides of moving Nuendo to a Mac? I think I've seen that Nuendo runs better on XP. Latency is supposed to be a bit better on XP as is general performance. Is that really true? Do you think the latest MBP's can work down to 128 samples?

Also, what about Bootcamp and XP? Any problems with RAM usage, latency etc?

Thanks for any info on this!

I find the Macs run great at a 256 buffer with Cubase

Bootcamp just enables you to install and boot into Windows it will be just like windows but on Mac hardware.

Best of both worlds

I assume 256 is the lowest buffer setting you can use for crackle free recording?

If you use load Nuendo/Cubase into XP via Bootcamp will it behave the same way as if you were on a PC ie. lower latency etc?
