XP Gaming on a Mac (Verdict: ZOMG It Works!)

bootcampxp.jpg
Amidst all of this bootcamp mumbo-jumbo it was only a matter of time before the Intel-powered Mac got a true test of strength: gaming. The guys at 1up installed Windows XP on a MacBook Pro and then installed Half-Life 2, Oblivion and F.E.A.R. for a test to see how much oomph these machines really have. The result?

…the MacBook running Apple’s official XP drivers is a robust, stable gaming platform capable of playing software from either side of the OS wars. While some are predicting this will be the beginning of the end for the Mac platform, the opposite seems to be true, at least anecdotally. At least a dozen platform fence-sitters have told me that the Mac’s newfound ability to play PC games has broken down the last barrier to their buying a Mac as their next computer.
