    I am planning to purchase the new 13" MBA. This will be my first Mac so I apologize for the newbie question. I have a licensed copy of Windows 7 on DVD and would like to install it on the MBA when it arrives. In order to install Windows, can someone tell me if it is possible to connected a standard external DVD drive via the USB port in the same way that one would do with a PC? I've got one lying around so don't want to buy the Apple SuperDrive offered in the Store.

    Just about any generic USB DVD drive should work.
