    Hi I wanna install via Boot Camp an XP, but would it slow my MB? I mean working on Mac OSX, start up/shut down time etc...? If yes, how much it'll slow it? I've got MB Alu, 2GHz, late 2008. Generally is it worth to install XP on MB for gaming, I mean, not for real gaming, for that I've got consoles, but sometimes I wanna play with friends CoD:WaW, Crysis etc...

    it's just like having a windows machine, same thing, it responds as well as a pc with the same specs would, for the most past at least, I think.

    Crysis and cod are pretty demanding games so you would probably just be able to run them on low settings. I'm sure someone on these forums has done it before. Macbooks aren't exactly gaming machines.
