I just got this new Powerbook Pro with the intel chip. Dang it's sweet. I've installed Lightwave 8.5 and every thing seems to work fine. Has there been any know bugs/problems/gotchyas/etc. to look out for?

The graphics card is the 256 version. Apple sure makes a nice machine.

Well the obvious "gotcha" is that Lightwave doesn't run natively on Intel under OS X yet. The Universal Binary version is "coming soon" but until then you'll get the best performance by installing windows using Boot Camp. If run the current version of Lightwave on OS X it will be running under emulation using Apple's "Rosetta" and not get the full performance of that new machine.
