    Hi All,

    Just wondering, this is more of a technical question, but what is the advantage of running bootcamp when you can use remote desktop? Is it solely the fact that you don't rely on having a separate PC in that instance and that both OS systems are running natively on a single machine? Wondering because I have RDC on my macbook air working beautifully :D but would like to explore bootcamp if its a plus.

    You got it! If the PC is always available, then there is hardly a reason to use BootCamp other than performance differences - remote screen updates are slow but computation could be faster if you have a fast Windows box.
