    I only have a Mac mini but what version of Windows are you trying to install? Bootcamp 4 (Lion / Mountain Lion) is not yet supporting Windows 8.

    must have been a problem with the iso, im now typing this from within my windows 7 boot after starting over and redoing my usb stick. god it feels wrong, but at the same time its an exceptionally smooth experience. best machine ive ever used windows on lol

    funny that - they have tested same CPU environments and the Apple actually runs windows (slightly) faster....

    its all about drivers and attention to details. theres an odd irony that windows runs better on a mac, and office works better on osx...
