Don't know if anyone can anwer this, but does the new MacBook Pro have a 32 or 64 bit processor, and if 64, can we use the 64 bit version of LW under XP?

The current line of Intel Macs use a 32 bit version of the CoreDuo chipset.

Even if you had a 64-bit processor, you'd also want 64-bit drivers, which may come in a future release of Boot Camp, or built in to OS X 10.5.
