I am looking at getting an iMac 20". (Now that Macs run Windows)

Dose anyone have any experience on the performance of LW on an iMac running under bootcamp. (we have to wait for a universal version for mac)

As a Windows running PC how dose an iMac compare? (That is in context to 3D work.)

Is ther any rendering benchmarks available. :help:

did it on mine (20" 2ghz dc with 256mb gfx 2gb ram) no bother - it screamed on xp and the 20" screen was lovely.

have since stopped using bootcamp in favour of parrallels but havent run lightwave on that yet

Have you tried LW on parrallels yet?
