Will I be able to run Zune software off a Macbook Pro?
 
Yea i know this is anythingbutipod but I can get a really good deal on a bascally brand new 13' Macbook Pro but the only problem is will I be able to run the zune software with a Mac?

Use bootcamp, install windows, run Zune software.
There is no current native Zune software for Mac.

Not unless you do it through Bootcamp.

I own a MacBook Pro, and run Bootcamp/Windows7/Zune software, etc... works great for me.

Cheers, Dave.

I really wanted it to work with my macbook, but had to wait to buy bootcamp. It runs just fine as long as you have have windows installed.

Isn't Bootcamp free? You probably had to buy Windows, not BootCamp.

Cheers, Dave.

Yep bootcamp is free, and I to have run zune on my macbook pro, works perfectly.

You can also use VMplayer and download the XP image free from Microsoft.

Im going to agree with @ItsLasher on this. Running a VM will be way less painful than having two different OS's - especially if you are only using Windows for Zune.

A Microsoft employee just tweeted that Mac users will be able to sync with WP7 soon. The tweet was deleted but a screenshot managed to be taken. More information on Engadget.

I meant Windows! Sorry about the misinformation there.
