I saw Guitar Hero III (I even opened and played it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif) but it isn't Christmas here yet so I haven't seen my other gifts.

My cousin has Guitar Hero III, I'm going to like, move into her house seen as my presents are pretty naff.

And I don't think you can, Kanuch, though i could be wrong.

Merry Christmas! :P

@Kanuch I think you can install Windows on the iBook,but it's very hard because the Mac doesn't allow it but somehow you can do it :P

Is the internet on it slow at all or is it all the same?

Suprisingly its very fast for me. It runs über circles around the Psp's browser. I find it almost as easy as a comp once you get the hang of it.


Oh yah, it plays music too. Lol

OMG it has everything lol! I ask because the PS3's browser is slow as hell! So you think I should get one?

depends on how much music you have. I only have 1 gb and some vids so I got the 8 gb, and couldn't love it more. The wifi is great too.

John, you can't on an iBook without using Virtual PC which runs apps at a 100th of the host processor http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Well Kanuch, you're screwed then. I'm assuming that you've got an Intel Mac, and if so you can play Windows games. But your screwiness comes from the fact that you need to install windows. Basically bootcamp partitions your harddrive so half of it will be leopard and the other half will be XP/Vista. That's the only way it can be done unfortunately. You COULD try running virtual PC, which is a Windows Emulator. It would mean you wouldn't have to necesarily need to boot a new system, but it will lag and may not even play the games <_<

AirRon, Ex-Mac User, quit once he found out he liked to play PC games.

He did say that it's an iBook which are PPCs so there's no chance of boot camp. See my previous reply

And as for emulation, the problem with running a virtual pc on any OS, is that it only emulates a graphics card, the host OS can't share the real graphics card.
So that rules out most modern games. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
