    Whats's up guys, i have got a small question.

    i have a white macbook.
    2.13 GHz intel Core 2 Duo
    3 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    9400m Graphics Card

    So i need to run some windows programs on bootcamp for college, but i cant choose between xp or 7. Does xp run smoother then 7 on bootcamp because XP is a less heavy OS then 7? Or does windows 7 runs smooth ass well on my old macbook (A)

    Windows 7 is actually a really nice operating system. That's what I use on my 2.26 GHz MacBook with 4GB of RAM. You should be able to run Windows 7, just make sure you install the 32 bit version and you'll be golden :)

    I prefer XP only because I rarely use my Windows partition, everything works well on it and all the games I play COD 4 & 5, Halo etc all work with no issues.

    I have Win 7 at work and I am not too fond of it as it is still very slow when copying data from one drive to another, or accessing a Network Share, but XP is solid for now, and I did not have to buy another version of Windows so it was easy for me to decide.
