    Hi,

    I'd like to get a mac, I'm a pc user. I'd like to install windows 7 on it. Any way to do so? Mac's are new to me. Do you install it the same way you would on a pc?
    Put in the dvd, wait till it writes "press any button to boot from disc and the setup start's". or something like that.
    Any info will be appreciated.

    I have as much Mac knowledge as you, but try this:

    You install it the same way like on a PC. There's bootcamp which will guide you to all steps. It's really easy.

    Out of curiosity, why are you buying a Mac to install Windows? You could probably find yourself a much better (laptop?) for much cheaper. Anyways, I only knew one person who had a Mac that tried to install Windows on it, but there was a problem with one of the drivers and they gave up on trying to get it installed. Basically it's possible that you'll need to have some technical know how in the event of a problem. I'm pretty sure you could find a forum on the specific model you're buying, and how to get Windows installed on it.
