In its announcement, Apple said the new version of Boot Camp will support the "latest Intel-based Macintosh computers," which is a reference to the company's announcement on Oct. 24 that it has updated its MacBook Pro notebooks with Intel's Core 2 Duo processor.

This latest announcement was similar to a Boot Camp update given on Sept. 18, after Apple and Intel announced that the two companies had begun offering the Core 2 Duo processor in the iMac line.

On Oct. 18, Apple announced its fourth-quarter financial results and company executives said that since Boot Camp was first introduced on April 5 it has been downloaded more than a million times by users.
