    I am planning to buy a apple mac book.
    I am basically a .net programmer.
    I used to develop classic asp and .net applications.
    Is mac book is compatiable with .net software if i install under windows xp operating system.

    Is this combination really works. Is anyone using .net on mac book.

    Can any one give suggestion on this

      I do a lot of developement on virtual machines.   The school I am attending is using WinXP and Visual Studio 2008.... but I've got Win7 and VS2010.   So, I just created a VM for my school-related development work.  

      It's not bad... perhaps a wee bit slower than "going native".   In your case, you can use Boot Camp to install WinXP directly (without virtualization).

      I would assume my experiences with VMs hosted on Win7 would be about the same as VMs on your Mac.

      yes you can, but it runs best if you install windows on your macbook via bootcamp, and then install .net & visual studio.
      You could look at Mono to run a .net framework on OSX
