Will Rybka 2.3.2 work on an Apple Macbook Pro?

Not directly but it works fine with Parallels.

I have heard, but not tried using crossover office may be successful as well.

If you install Windows via bootcamp, it should work.
I am currently running one of my computers, a Mac pro with 2x Xeon X5365 under XP x64. One problem is: there are no 64 bit drivers for the onboard soundcard - but i don´t care for that. Besides this, there are no major problems. But memory performance is not as good as on Intel mainboards - but that´s a different story.

I've tried a MacBook (consumer, not Pro) for a week, and I hope you will take this advice: don't switch!
I speak from experience...Apple notebooks are not the cheapest and their hardware is not the best: Toshiba and HP offer the same hardware at low prices; moreover, if you want a "cool" notebook Sony Vaio is a good choice for you: high quality and sophisticated design.
Mac OS X is probably the best OS, slightly better than Windows, but I've experienced some problems using it, because the World is designed for Windows :)
Mac users are only 22 millions:)
Concerning Chess, Mac OS X is the worse choice: only Hiarcs and Shredder are native, there aren't ChessBase or ChessAssistant and parallels isn't a reasonable solution. So you have to install (using Bootcamp) Windows on you Mac...
And I don't know why some people buy a MacBook Pro (2.500$ or more) and then they install Windows:)

Make the right choice!

P.S. However Vista is an effective OS, much better than XP.
