Just stumbled upon this article,http://www.gamespot.com/features/6147437/index.html,if you read it all it does is say bootcamp under intel macs is great, but when it comes to games its not good, they say its "boring" and the frame rates arent great due to the "weak ATI Radeon X1600 graphics chip" I was just wondering, I thought bootcamp was great for games, smooth and good framerates etc... so is this review not all correct or should I listen to people who have it, versus critics who mostly critique PC games...

Boot Camp is great for running games. If they didn't like it, it's probably because they didn't like the hardware.

In theory Bootcamp is excellent. It lets you run Windows on a Mac with no lag or problems.
I think they're just complaining about the system specs. the iMac itself.

Now. Conroe/whatever the intel PowerMacs will be using will be something else.
