You serious ?? You want to install Windows on Mac, dude Mac are known for their OS and interface.
You want dual boot or just Win 8 ??

The Don's Decision.
MAC:No gaming,Best office,Less Hangs,Less Malware,ShowOff,Better visual Performance,Perfected Apps(Best for businessmen,private)

Windows:Best for gaming,More malware,more customization,more hangs,best for developers,Morely used by people,Better sharing(Best for students,gamers,overclockers,OK for officers)


The Conclusion is WINDOWS 7 Ultimate (2014)

Dont go for MAC if you want MAC Still it is a showoff.Dont worry about malware there are still antivirus rocking the world

Dual Booting Makes your PC very slow.Sometimes your BOOTMGR may cause prob

I just recently bought a MacbookPro15, and at first I was like you and I wanted to get windows up and running on it as soon as I could. As I did not have an 8gB pen drive with me at that time, I had to wait for a few days, and guess what? I was using Mac OSX and absolutely fell in love with it. Like everything feels like a breeze on it. The touchpad integration and gestures are just epic. And when I finally got my hands on an 8gB pen drive, I installed Windows 7 on it (Boot Camp), and seriously have never used it since the time i installed it. Every single software/game I used either had a version for mac, or worked through Crossover (based on WINE). IMO just keep using Mac for a few days, see if you can work without windows. If the reason you want windows is because you want to play new games, then (....well what I am I talking about, Its a macbook air.... you just can't play new games on it....) If the games you want are old ones then check if they work on Crossover/WINE. Otherwise if they are light games/apps just install a windows virtual machine and use on that.
