Yes you can.

Here is a guide.

I would go with the 32 bit as you will see no difference if you have 4 GB of RAM or less. Although if you plan to upgrade to 8 GB in the near future, 64 bit may be a good choice as 32 bit can only utilize up to 4 GB.

I'm also running Windows 7 Ultimate on my 13 inch unibody Macbook and it runs like a dream. Infact, it runs better than on my mate's Windows laptop
