    Looking at getting a MPRr 15" and have a few questions.

    Can I install windows 7 on the 256GB SSD and then install windows games on an external portable HDD?

    I have Windows 7 on a disc but wouldn't get an optical drive. Is it possible to install Windows without an optical drive.

    You might be able to use a USB drive or on an external harddrive.

    If you can create an .ISO of your install disc and have an 8 GB USB flash drive, you can use Boot Camp Assistant to create a bootable copy of Windows for said flash drive. Alternatively, there are completely legal ways to download an already made .ISO that you can simply point BCA to.
