It works as advertised. Turns an Intel Mac for all practical purposes into a Windows PC. The only downside is that you have to reboot.

But in my opinion Paralells is a better solution. It allows you to run Windows XP and Mac OS X simultaniously, and flip back and forth between them.

Parallels does indeed seem to be the best solution, and it's fairly cheap, too.

But if you're still interested in BootCamp, see here:

My brother has been using Bootcamp on his MacBook without any hitch for game playing. I have to say it was simpler to install windows on the Mac than any PC I've done since the program prompts you to burn a disc with all needed software and up to date drivers. The only downside is there is no support for right-clicking without a mouse or third-party hacks.

Parallels is a better solution IMHO if you don't need to do any work involving the video card as hardware acceleration seems to be non-existant.

Ars has a review.
