I will be needing to do some work with Windows and was wondering if anyone out there is using Boot Camp and XP on your Mactel and how's it working?

No. No one is using it.

I am using it on an Intel Mini with 1 gig memory and it works just fine. As speedy as Mac OS. Don't use it for much, not many apps installed but so far all of them work okay.

Works fine here, as well. Wifey is very pleased with her Windows half of the MacBook.

It runs great. No worries; however, I would opt for Parallels, if you want to spend a little money...well worth it not having to "lose" some of your hard drive space to a Windows partition with BootCamp.

I have it installed, but I use Parallels for all my Windows-only tasks. It is awesome.

Curious how a ram maxed macbook pro runs with both os's running using Parallels. Do things bog down when apps are open in both spaces? And what's the speed equivalent of xp running under Parallels as well.
