^In that case, the MBP would probably be fine. The 10 hour battery life is always a plus and the Core2Duo isn't that far behind the i3 in the Asus. The GeForce 320M in the MBP is also slightly better.
As far as I know, Boot Camp runs Windows fine. I know someone who is running XP Pro on his 13'' MBP just fine.
That is exactly
what I needed to hear.
