    How do I switch between Windows 7 and Mac OSX?
    Hi, I'm going to install Windows 7 on my Mac soon. I am just wondering how do I choose the OS when I turn on my Mac. Will it give me am option at the beginning? Thanks

    No. You'll press and hold the Option key at boot time to toggle between the two.

    Be sure to print and read the Boot Camp User Guide, which you'll be prompted to view at the first step. It will literally save you hours of time and frustration.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Another way is to purchase Parallels 6 and you can swap directly from Mac to Windows without the need to reboot.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
