    Hi i just bought a new 13" macbook pro and was looking in to buying games for it but nothing really good will run on the mac but i heard about boot camp but I am kinda scared to use it .
    Is installing windows going to do anything drastic to my mac or is it going to just have different features but still have a lot of mac stuff
    Also i thought i read something about i can actually choose between the two op systems when i turn on my computer is that true ?
    Thanks for your help =)

    No, it will be just like any other laptop with Windows on it.

    Hold down the OPTION/Alt key right after the startup sound.

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    do you rly want to know?
    your macbook pro only has a intel 3000 integrated gpu. that won't change if u install windows. the most you might be able to play is valve games. so no call of duty or crysis or anything like that. it just won't work.

    Is it easy to uninstall if i don't like it ?

    And so there is no point to do it for games ? i Read somewhere else that is is good for games .. like i would like to play sky rim when it comes out .

    Hmmm...this thread suggests quite the opposite. Seems several people are playing Crysis on higher settings.

    I don't play video games at all, so I don't have any input on this other than finding that info for you.

    Skyrim on an integrated graphics chip? I doubt it! But yeah you will certainly see a huge performance boost in games.
