Hey everybody,

I'm looking at getting MobileMe for better syncing of my calendars and e-mails. I use Windows 7 (release candidate version)...anyone have opinions on it? Especially on Windows. I want to get a macbook, but can't afford it right now....thanks.

To get the full MobileMe experience on windows, you really need Outlook 07 in order to push contacts, calendars, and email.

I don't regularly use it with windows, but it is a great service.

Interesting...I have Outlook '07, but the only issue for me with Windows is compatibility. For example, if it works with Windows Live (the new Outlook Express) then I won't have to get the heavy duty version of Office.

No, MobileMe only works with outlook.

I you already have outlook 07, then you're all set.

Mobile ME & Outlook (any verison) works seemlessly. I think it's a great product. Try using the trial version for a while and see how well it works for you...
