If you don't game you won't need fusion or boot camp. I have never installed windows on my macbook pro in the two years I've had it.

i tend to agree. which do you think is more enjoyable. Gaming on a 30" lcd with analogue 5.1 or on a 92" 1080p projector with 7.1 digital surround

I would have to say gaming on a project is a lot more fun then a 30" LCD analog 5.1, but myself i get the extra 2 inches (32" LCD) at 1080p with 5.1 digital surround sound, which is a nice middle ground between those two options you show, lol

Gaming on a projector for sure.

But to say there is a huge difference in audio from analog 5.1 to digital 7.1 is not really true.

Both analogue and digital can send the same signals.

true, but where the projector really shines are any games with a split screen.

Oh definitely, get to see comfortably and get a nice large screen, compared to a small screen for each person or sitting 2 feet from the tv
