I've heard of problems while using this for running Windows.
Like, something about it causing hardware issues for the computer, Or causing problems for the OSX side of things.
Idk, maybe it's people stupid enough to get viruses on Windows ?
Let me know please, thanks!

Not sure where you're hearing this from, but I haven't heard of any real major issues when using Bootcamp. The only thing I don't like is the time is never accurate, but there is a thing you can download to fix it, just too lazy to download.

Just run a good AV (MSE, Avira, Avast) and be smart when surfing the web and you'll be fine. I haven't noticed any impact on my OS X side after installing W7 a while ago.
