Just curious how well XP runs on Macbook 2.16 Ghz, 2GB 160GB HD using Parallels or Bootcamp?

Thanks for any info.

It runs well on both, but remember that your gaming won't be great due to the integrated graphics. VMWare's Fusion performs better than Parallels, but features come slower.

It runs as well as XP can run. I use Bootcamp, personally. It runs just as good if not better than other machines. The reason being is you have Apple creating specific drivers for the exact hardware you have. But remember, it's still Windows.

The majority of the drivers aren't from Apple though.

The small things are nice like keyboard support and the iSight.
