Correct me if I am wrong, but I was under the impression that Windows (even 7) ran badly using bootcamp. However, I see a lot of people using Windows on their Macbooks as opposed to OS X. As a result, I have been getting curious, can anyone speak to the performance of Windows 7 being installed on a 2011 Macbook Pro? Personally I am more efficient with Windows 7 but I already have that on my desktop so I prefer leaving OS X on my laptop. It's something new and different, I never understood why people paid for a Macbook just to run Windows on it.
