    thanks.

    what it does is install windows in its own partition and lets you choose which os to boot into. once in windows ti will have the same power as if you were using it on an alienware (or whatever) computer. You are not emulating the os like when using VPC on PPC macs which was painfully slow

    Yeah, it runs natively while still leaving everything on the OS X partition alone.
