    Specs:
    Macbook/13.3"/2.16GHz Intel C2D/1GB RAM/120GB HD/Ipod 20 Gig
    Dual 2 Core = How do I get windows on the mac?
    How do I switch back and forth from the Mac to Windows and vice versa on the new macbook?

    I have a Windows disk somewhere....but I cant find anywhere to tell me how to do it....this will come in very handy at work, where they all use PCs.

    Thanks!

    If you do NOT need 3D graphics you may want to look into Parallels. This would eliminate the need to Stop, reboot each time you switch between OS's.
