Is opening a link in a new window good or bad for SEO?

I’m wondering what the SEO guidance is for opening links in new windows? And I’m specifically wondering about internal links, since I’m pretty sure it’s accepted to allow external links to open in a new window. I have a comparison table, for example, that I think would be useful for the reader to view side-by-side with the article, but I’m nervous about how Google might view the link if I set it to open in a new window. Thoughts?
