Best Way To Run Windows 7 on a Macintosh

I need to run Win 7 on a Mac and I am wondering the most reliable way to do it.

I have read that running it in virtual environments takes some of the system resources, so can anyone tell me the absolute best way to run it where I will have access to 100% of the system's resources?

Boot Camp was suggested to me as the best, but I am interested in information one way or the other

As you've said, the best way of installing Windows 7 on a Mac is via Boot Camp. It's an Apple run product so it's completely reliable and they've even put a nice little page with FAQs and tutorials. Give it a read, you'll find it quite helpful; I've linked it below.
