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.

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.
