Bootcamp works great, but it can take up a lot of space and time to get it going, and then if you decide you want to put more or less space on it you have to reconfigure everything and it's really a giant headache.


No idea what Bootcamp is.

You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.

Windows runs flawlessly on Macs, as if the hardware was standard x86 hardware (which it is, incidentally), however some things like the trackpad don't work as well, and you don't get as good battery life.


So you buy the program and install it?


Boot Camp is free with every Mac.
You need to have a Windows license if you want to use Windows on a Mac. In most cases, that means buying it.

Boot Camp Assistant is a Mac OS X tool that does several things:
- Create a DVD or bootable USB thumb drive with Windows installation files
- Split your Mac hard drive into two parts, one for Mac OS X to continue living in, the other for Windows to be installed to.
- Download a set of drivers for your particular type of Mac computer which you'll install in Windows so everything works well

Mac user here. Bootcamp allows and eases up the installation of Windows 7 or 8 by allowing the user to assign how much storage on their drive they want to dedicate to Windows. You install the disk and format the selected drive into whatever it is Windows can read, and run it like a normal Windows installation. Afterwards, on the Windows side, you install a disk with special files from downloading on Bootcamp which contain the drivers for the hardware on your Mac so that they can be usable on Windows!

Once that's done, you have windows! Every time you start up your computer afterwards, you can hold down option and select which OS you want to use.

It's really easy and runs pretty smoothly. Battery life sucks though and it heats up much more.

I'm not sure I quite understand the point of installing windows on a Mac.

What's not to understand? It gives you the flexibility to run any Windows apps you may still need access to.
