I was thinking of getting an imac but I need windows for work. So was going to install windows 7 through bootcamp. Once I'm using windows will it be exactly the same as using it on a PC. For example I've got a copied autoCAD disc and will need to install this for work. Will it install and work like it does on my computer at the moment even though it's a copied version. Any help thanks lol.

It will work exactly like a PC once you install the Boot Camp drivers from Apple on the Windows side.

When he says exactly he means exactly bugs, viruses and all.
