Macbook pro sold bundled with pre-installed XP
MacMall is now selling decked out macbook pro models with several preinstalled windows options. You can get XP home or XP pro installed either by bootcamp or under virtualization via parallels, which only costs $10 more than the bootcamp option. A similar promotion is now available for apple's 13.3" mabcook models as well.
The most attractive option bundles XP pro installed using bootcamp 1.1, and has the following specs:
Apple mabcook pro 15.4" 1440x900 widescreen display
2.33Ghz intel core2duo processor (currently the fastest available)
120GB SATA HDD
ATi X1600 256MB GDR3
6x DVD±RW + CD-RW combo drive
wifi + bluetooth
$2543 (after $150 rebate, which is a bummer)
in contrast, apple's stock 15.4" midrange model ships without XP and otherwise has the same specs, and runs for $2499. So if you are dilligent about the rebate, you can score a macbook pro plus windows XP pre-installed for only $43 more than the stock model from apple.
My brain can imagine more polygons than your brain.
