1 Mac and Windows on Fri Nov 19, 2010 5:47 pm

i know, by browsing the internet, that an Apple computer can emulate Windows, because recent iMac computers have the same processor (Intel core i3, i5, i7) and the graphic card is an Ati.

Do u know if this is really true? Or it's just one of those bold statements?
I mean, im sure enough they can emulate just small and simple programs, but the question is: can they emulate even complex programs like a modern videogame?

Yea I asked me the same, cuz u know I'm a damn apple fanboy.

It runs Windows, too.

Have a Windows application you need to use once in a while? No problem. Every new Mac lets you install and run Windows at native speeds, using a built-in utility called Boot Camp.

Setup is simple and safe for your Mac files. After you’ve completed the installation, you can boot up your Mac using either Mac OS X or Windows. (That’s why it’s called Boot Camp.) Or if you want to run Windows and Mac applications at the same time — without rebooting — you can install Windows using VMware or Parallels software.*

-> U only need Boot camp, so it's not a rumour ^^

Playing windows games on a Mac

As far as I know the current version is 3.1, but I'm not sure.

Thanks for the links, i didnt know that it was so easy to emulate Windows.

Anyway, i checked on iMac specifications and maybe they still are a bit poor talking about graphic cards (i mean, poor to run recent PC games). The basic iMac, the one costing 1.200 euros, has a 256MB ram graphic card, i think that's not enough. And, using 1.200, i can buy a "monster PC", if u know what i mean.
