Hi Everybody,

I am going to buy an MacBook, but because of some development issue (I am an Android developer) I still need to have the Windows installed onto the Laptop.

So my questions are here
1. Is it OK to run Windows on MacBook?
2. Is there any development limitation?

The above questions may seem a little silly, but sorry i never use any apple product before.

Thanks,
Steve
