Hey just wondering if it is possible to run pc devices under bootcamp on a new iMac. Getting a new phone soon and want to be able to bluetooth between the comp and the phone.

Yes. Why not?

It will be a 'PC' and do all those things.

Yes, Huy is right.
It performs just like a normal PC would.
For example, I can plug in my scanner that isn't compatible with macs.

Bootcamp is running windows on your mac hardware - all it does is add drivers (no emulation). This means that anything that works in windows works in bootcamp.

There is a bluetooth driver installed so yeah it should work as long as WindowsXP/Vista can cope with new hardware.

Vista on a Mac is the same as Vista on any other PC.

Yeah, but at least all the drivers are provided by the hardware manufacturer. :D

Ah k, cool. I thought I would just check anyway, kind of assumed it would.
