    I know this sounds silly and I'm fairly confident that it's false, but a friend of mine told me Bootcamp partitions your hardware specs. In other words your RAM is reduced to 2GBs rather than 4GB and your video card is split from 512MB to 256MB, etc. I really think he's confusing this with VMware Fusion or possibly Parallels but I wanted to make sure that I wasn't too stupid to think he's right.

    Any help with this?:confused:

    He is. When running Windows from a Boot Camp partition, Windows gets ALL system resources.

    However, if in VMware Fusion or Parallels, it divides the resources equally (or to what you prefer).
