Apple Updates Boot Camp For Core 2 Duo

Apple Computer Inc. on Friday updated its Boot Camp application that lets Mac users run the OS X and Windows XP operating systems on the same system.

Among the changes to Boot Camp 1.1.1 is support for Intel's Core 2 Duo processors, which power the newest iMac machines that Apple introduced last week. Other additions and improvements include preset partition sizes for Windows XP; support for the iSight video camera built into iMac, MacBook, and MacBook Pro computers; and enhanced support for Windows-style keys on the Apple keyboard.

Although Apple currently dubs Boot Camp as beta, the Cupertino, Calif. company will roll the technology into the next version of Mac OS X, 10.5 (Leopard), which it plans to release early next year.

Boot Camp 1.1.1 can be downloaded from the Apple Web site.
