Hi Friends

I'm from India and planning to purchase new white Macbook but I have few queries and hope here my expert friends will answer it satisfactory.

Firstly I never worked on mac before will it be possible to install dual operating system Mac osx and Windows 7

Secondly are drivers available for windows platform too. and wht if I wish to install only clean Windows 7. Will still my warranty be available?

Kindly help me out as I'm seriously thinking to adopt mac in my life just because I love quality and technology together.

Yes, you can run both Windows 7 and OS X. I don't really understand your second question. Are you asking if you can only run windows 7 and not OS X so your macbook acts like a windows machine?

Yes it is very possible but I have never understood why anyone would want to do that. The main reason I bought a mac was for OS X, but if you desire, you can certainly only run windows 7.
