    Mac OS X has Boot Camp, it allows you to install Windows on a partition of the hard drive. It tells you everything to do when you open it. It doesn't cost any extra, it's a part of the Mac operating system.

    Macbooks along with other Macs with an Intel chip can run windows.

    Intel Macs come with BootCamp built in which enables you to choose to run Windows or OS X when you boot up (start up) your machine.

    Also, you can purchase VMWare Fusion or Parallels to run Windows on top of OS X.

    For more details, search the forums using MRoogle (see link in my sig below)

    Depending on your specific needs, you could also virtualize with the free VirtualBox.

    I know, right? Some people just get sooooo annoyed when you refer to your computer as a MAC or your iPod as an iTouch....

    Sometimes y'all gotta chill....:cool:
