move that's causing many to check out their window to see if the sky is falling, PC World has laid out a welcome mat
for Apple's hardware into their Top Power PCs
, thanks to Boot Camp. So far, no Macs have made the charts due to some policy quirks (they typically
only test stock PCs - Macs don't ship pre-installed with Windows) and test compatibility hiccups, but from a blog entry covering their initial tests
, the iMac
running Windows XP fared pretty well.

rumors of virtualization in Leopard and now Apple's hardware being put to the test alongside its now (let's face it) PC
brethren hardware. We'll keep our ears out for more results on just how well these new Macs stack up.
