Hey guys, I've been contemplating trying out this Boot Camp thing because I do miss lots from my Windows and certain things you can do on a Windows but not on a Mac.

Anyways could someone help me out by explaining EXACTLY what Boot Camp does ? The Pros and Cons of it ?

Thanks guys.

Give them a read and most of your questions should be answered.

Hey guys I'm considering getting OS X Snow Leopard, for Boot Camp. I could use a lot of the stuff I previously had on Windows. Anyone have any feedback and/or advice on this ? Thanks

You don't need Snow Leopard (OS 10.6) for Boot Camp. Leopard 910.5) comes with it as well. Otherwise, I'm not sure I understand your question. but you should read the stickies - lots of info in there.

Cheers
