Boot Camp in Leopard has gone beyond beta and turns the MacBook Pro into excellent gaming hardware for the casual gamer.
Not so long ago when I first installed Boot Camp beta I was surprised to find out that my recent MacBook Pro Santa Rosa 2,2 Ghz was not that bad at all for playing recent 3D games. In fact, it was so good at it, that my productivity decreased dramatically for some weeks. Half Life 2 runs at very smooth 60 – 70 fps with most detail settings set to their maximum value (with Bootcamp beta).
After watching Steve Jobs’ Keynote address on WWDC 2007 it gets more evident to me to me what many people are already thinking: technologies and scientific theories are much like items of pop culture. It’s all about who wears it and it’s new shiny appearance.
