Bootcamp vs. normal windows pc

by The0 / July 16, 2007 10:12 PM PDT

Is runing windows on your mac through bootcamp almost exactly the same as running windows with a pc with the same system specifications? Lets say I wanted to play a game, would it run the same on bootcamp as any other computer (with the same graphics as a mac)?

Thank you

Bootcamp is not running in emulation or in a virtual machine so it does run at full tilt.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
