MBP success. Win XP boot time about 7 seconds to a usable desktop. Great ! The trick here is not to worry too much about the first 2 or 3 boots. I suspect Parallels is doing something to the images, because after taking 30 second on the first couple of boots I'm now down to 7 consistently. DHCP still doesn't work in bridged mode for Linux variants (not a big deal for me though) Wake from sleep works fine. Mouse still seems a little "jerky". I'll try reinstalling the VM tools and see if that makes a difference. This is an awesome product, I already pre-ordered so I'm doing my part and showing confidence. For those that haven't placed an order, get it while it's hot guys $10 off !
