For all owners of a MacIntel, you can now easily install MS XP thanks to a soft from Apple called BootCamp. No need for a hack, Apple gives all the tool needed.
This is a beta and will be an integrated part of Leopard (10.5)

I haven't tested it yet, so if someone can try it and post here that would be awesome :)

first intel, now windows.

hahah, so true.

..if only you could actually overclock a mac.

think about it, dual g5.. overclocked..
that'd be enough for me to ditch my windows rig.
of course, im too poor for that. :D

We have a fan here :)

You're a slow typer, i'm a slow runner :)

As for weezer, you won't be seeing windows on dual G5, you need to wait for the intel version (maybe 2 dual cores).

I'm seriously considering a Core Duo Mini now...Just gonna have to wait and see what the benches look like and what the overclocking/upgrading deal is. That thing is far too small dor me to ignore it as a college student...and I've been drooling over an apple display for a long time

The apple displays are nice and they have the best design, however they are overpriced. The Dells have a much better picture and they are half the price of the apple

I finally got Boot Camp working after a few errors, so I wrote up some tips to get it to work flawlessly the first time..
