Will it run?

Sorry to do a hardware disscussion, I'm sure these get old, but nonetheless. I did spent a lot of time in the search, and google, but I couldn't find anything regarding my specs.


I'm a student, and will be hopefully taking SW classes next year, so I'm just trying to plan ahead a bit. I have my fairly dated MacBook for school work and I'm curious as to how well, if at all, it will be able to run SW. I do have a high end PC at home, which I'm certian will be more than capable (it's just at home), I'm just curious if my macbook (with Win7 in bootcamp) will be useable enough to keep up with in class lectures and demos. More intensive homework could be done at home.


It's a MacBook Pro 4,1


Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4

4 gigs DDR2 667

Nvida GeForce 8600M GT


And as I understand, the GPU will not be utilized in bootcamp? Is that correct?


Thank you for any help.
