    Windows 7 on my Macbook
    Looking to install Windows 7 on my:

    Hardware Overview:

    Model Name: MacBook
    Model Identifier: MacBook4,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 3 MB

    Should I get the 32-bit or 64-bit version? Which will give me the least problems? Thx.

    Since you only have 2GB of memory, you won't see any tangible benefits with the 64-bit version. However, even if you did, I would still recommend the 32-bit version simply because it's less of a hassle when it comes to drivers.

    I know that I don't stand with everyone else here on this...but do you have any pc's around that you can use for 7 other than your mac? I still use XP, and windows 7 is actually pretty darn good, but I keep it all on my HP desktop, and my old viao notebook.

    I would never personally install windows on my mac. I've seen way to many problems as a result of it. Bring on the flaming I guess lol

    I do have XP running in a virtual box which suppriseingly works really good, but I only use it for work when I am away from Home, Im still a heavy PC user at home but I am trying to learn on my mac. I think its the beauty of the hardware cross with the amazing displays.
