    Smile Bootcamp's ability at playing older Windows games?
    Hey everyone, I'm seriously considering buying the new macbook. I've heard a lot about bootcamp and I am wondering how well games work while running XP. If I get a macbook, I'm just using XP for games. I'm not looking at playing anything new (just old games designed for Windows 95 or 98 like Rouge Squadron LOL) Anyone know? Thanks :p

    Will the games work on a PC with XP? If so, they should work fine on the Mac with Bootcamp. Rogue Squadron plays fine in XP.

    I installed XP on my Core Duo Mini and played GTA, GTA3 and San Andreas, and many others, they all played great.

    Sweet...thanks for the reply dtravis7. I was concerned about the intergrated graphics.

    Since you brought that part up, only DOOM III was a bit jerky which I expected with the Intel 950. If I played it at 800x600 though it was not all that bad. just 1024x768 and higher.
