    Windows XP on a mac ... by Apple

    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

    Some links :

    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.

    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
