    What is the best method for getting Windows XP onto a MBP running Leopard, in order to play PC games? The Apple store had Parallels, but I read some negative reviews at BestBuy, so I thought I'd ask here.

    Now, Boot Camp already comes installed into Leopard, correct? So I just need to purchase a copy of Windows XP?

    Bootcamp/WinXP. 4GB RAM is good. Substantial free disk space would also be good. Just run Bootcamp and have a WinXP Install disk ready to go. Bootcamp will also install all of the drivers you'll need to run Windows. Go game! :)

    Bootcamp comes with MacOSX Leopard.

    Appreciate the advice! Now, I've been out of the loop for awhile but I loved playing RTS games years ago. Any fun ones from the past several years that I should check out?

    Lets see...


    Rise of Nations (my personal favorite)
    Supreme Commander
    Age of Empires 2 and 3
    Company of Heroes
    World in Conflict
    Command & Conquer Generals, 3, Red Alert 3

    Thing is Age of Empires 2/3, Command & Conquer Generals, Red Alert 3, and Rise of Nations are all also available for OS X. Company of Heroes and Rise of Nations are the 2 best games in my opinion.
