    I am not running Bootcamp on my iMac yet, but I am curious to see what kind of ratings current generation Intel Macs are getting. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/getready/upgradeadvisor/default.mspx thats the link to the Vista upgrade advisor, I guess it gives computers a numerical rating just like in Vista (i guess its been made more accurate, but I'm not sure). Thanks in advance for ratings, happy posting and happy lives.
    Edit:
    That page probably wont display right in Safari (never has).

    iMac Core Duo 2.0 with 2 GB of RAM and 256 MB video card.

    The computer needs no upgrades for any Vista features except for television capture (duh).

    It wasn't sure if there were drivers for my ethernet card or bluetooth for Vista though although I'm sure Apple will take care of that. It had drivers for everything else.

    Thanks for the reply. I am hoping Apple actually makes drivers soon... I might need to run Windows very very soon for work, and getting Vista for free (I dont care that it's a beta) would be a lot nicer than buying XP. I plan on putting in a gig stick into mine, so i figure 1.5 GB of ram should be plenty if i need to run vista. Anyone else out there try this? You just need to be running xp.
