    No one know whether the new imac get Bootcamp, but I think Bootcamp is a part of Lion and so it is intergrated in the Imac.

    Bootcamp is part of the OS, it's software that comes built in so, yes, it comes with all new macs; iMacs included.

    You only get the software for bootcamp though. Getting the external hard drive and a copy of windows is up to you.

    Bootcamp is a utility that is part of OS X from 10.5 (Leopard) onward. It comes with all Macs and has for the past few years. It provides an easy way to partition the internal hard drive and allows you to download the drivers required for Windows. You still need to get a copy of Windows and install it.

    See now. Had the thread title been "Does Bootcamp come with new iMacs? And where is it located". I would have had to use more brain power and directed you to /Applications/Utilities/Boot Camp Assistant.

    :D
