    Yes, it can easily run Windows 7, either the 32 or 64 bit version. However, you need to take in consideration the graphics capability of the MBP 13" machine and weigh it against what games in Windows you intend to play. The MBP 13" uses an integrated graphics chipset which shares memory with the system.

    That should work fine. I hooked up a Windoze keyboard back in the day when Quake Live came out. After getting killed 27 consecutive times in a row I thought it would be a good idea to smash the 10 dollar Keytronic keyboard than the one one my MBP.

    Like chscag stated previously, as long as the specs are fairly low and you meet and/or exceed them you should be just fine. Let us know how it goes.
