Windows 7: Windows 7 on a MacBook Pro

Windows 7 on a MacBook Pro

I know you guys are probably gonna kill me for this, but I'd like to use Mac hardware and put Windows 7 on it. I know this is possible, and was wondering how the hardware specs would work with 7. Also.. do you think that the Graphics Card would be able to handle a 3D game like Batman : Arkham Asylum? When I say MacBook Pro, I mean the 13" one btw.

Thanks, Smartman

P.S. I still love Windows

What are the Graphics in the MBP. it has a dedicated hardware card, right?
I think most, if not all the hardware is compatible. Since you want to play games you will be using the latest Bootcamp I presume? Bootcamp has the drivers for all of the Mac's hardware devices. You can also use Windows updats to check for driver updates.

I don't think anyone will say anything, your Mac is a PC afterall.

Aha, that's true :P
I was wondering about one thing, the mousepad. The MacBook Pro has a touch mousepad with all these cool iPhone-like features, (ie. pinch for zoom) and was wondering if this would work on Windows? I guess it would be just like using a Magic mouse on Windows? and you're sure, all of the drivers will be used on Windows? When using Boot Camp, can I make the entire hard drive set as a Windows partition and completely remove OSX?

Thanks, Smart Man

Windows 7 on Macbook Pro
Are there any major downsides to running Windows 7 as the primary OS on a Macbook Pro? I dig the look of them but not so much the OS. I can't stand OSX but I have always been drawn to the physical design of the Macbooks. I would be using it primarily for scripting in Power Shell and/or Python...

Hi all, recently I bought a Macbook Air (11-inch, 64gb) for college. I played around with it for a couple of weeks and was actually quite content with the Mac OS X until it felt a bit dull (I don't use graphic or music editing software that much). Now the Mac is new and my parents are really...
