Hi guys,

 

Just looking for some ideas as to what would be the best option to run latest mac osx, win7 and ubuntu on my macbook pro 15' late 2011 (md322).

No getting around having all 3 as i require them for work.

And not real keen in buying a windows laptop to cart with my MBP.


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    if one don't have to run games

    or if one don't need very very very demanding apps such as huge photos in photoshop hd video in video editor

    or 3d programs such as maya, or autocad or....

     

    then I would suggest you use virtualbox or vmware to run windows7 and ubuntu as virtual machines it makes switching between them much much much faster

    You can't have 3 partitions with Bootcamp.

     

    Use a virtual machine like Parallels, Fusion, or VirtualBox. Install Windows and Ubuntu in the virtual machine.
