I just picked up a MacBook for a favourable price with the intention of putting Boot Camp on it and running XP to play games for windows....Even though the recommended specs for SF4 from Capcom are:Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GhzNVideo 8600 series2GB RamThis Mac is running windows XP with:Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GhzNVideo 9400m4GB RamIt cannot pass the benchmark test and scores a D. Is this an inherent fault in getting a Mac to run windows because I know people have used MAcs for a while with boot camp and parallels.Would a MacBook Pro be able to do the job?

When you set up the XP partition how much space HD space did you allocate to for XP? I think the game requires about 10GB

BTW.The performance won't be as smooth as you hoped, because essentially you are using 2 OS's meaning that the specs will be split between them 2 too.You should dual boot instead.

70 megabytes?I swear an OS needs a couple bags minimum just to run smoothly, that is probably the cause, Xanders right you'd need a bigger partition./You bought a macbook just for sf? ballin.gifIf you do decide to buy a macbook pro sell me the macbook for a favourable price
