Things related to Apple
Shortly after the unofficial method of running Windows XP on Intel-powered Macs was released, Apple released a public beta of Boot Camp, their own solution to the problem. Given that I'd just used the unofficial solution on the Core Duo mini, I was the logical candidate to do the same via Boot Camp. So I did, and wrote about the steps involved.
After receiving my first-ever Intel-powered Mac, a new Core Duo mini, I spent the better part of a week testing out the machine in nearly every aspect of performance I could think up. This started as a three-part series, but based on feedback from the first three parts, we added two additional sections. Here's how the entire series came out:
- Setup, configuration and application tests
- General observations, audio & video, gaming
- Testing methods, Intel transition and conclusions
- More RAM, more tests
- HD issues and final thoughts
While not at the technical level of an Ars Technica report (I won't even pretend to have the skills to go there), this is a very detailed look at the machine from a somewhat typical user's perspective.
