I am going to buy a mac. As I was researching the best prices and such, I noticed that some companies are offering both
Mac O/S and a Windows O/S (XP or Vista) both in one computer...
I was wondering if this is a sound thing to do? What are benefits and pitfalls of it?
Or any info you send my way will be apprecciated
Thank you in advance!

A "hackintosh" PC may have issues given the hardware layout. If you buy a Mac, you can install Windows on it with Bootcamp. There can be issues there too. Not all hardware designed for a Windows-based PC is compatible for a Mac. I say if you're a gamer or someone who doesn't want to deal with the uncertainties associated with a Mac/Windows PC, stick to Windows. If you want to try something new, download the Windows 7 Release Candidate and see if you like it.
Actually most Mac's now come with the option to have Windows installed on it as well as the Mac OSX. From what i have heard about the process the windows acts like a normal windows computer and con do everything a normal windows can. Same with the Mac
