Windows On A Mac Before Boot Camp

by adkinsjm / April 7, 2006 2:28 AM PDT

Does anyone know if someone bought the MacMini that had Windows XP running on it? Molly and Veronica mentioned it on Monday. I would feel really bad if anyone did buy it the day before Boot Camp was released. But I guess it would not be that much of a rip off considering that you would need to spend $200 to get Windows XP anyway.

Were they charging more

I can't remember the details. Were they charging more for it than the regular MacMini? If so but it included a license of Windows XP, it's still not such a bad deal, I should think. It seems purchases like that are always a little shady anyhow, though so people are kind of taking a risk buying something like that.

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?
