    I know this is probably as easy as sliding my copy of windows 7 into the dvd driving and cracking a beer and firing up a cigar. However I'm worried about something going wrong. could anyone who'se done the win7 dual boot shed some light on the steps in this process?

    I can't remember off the top of my head, but I think your manual for the Mac has a section dedicated to bootcamp... Or maybe I printed it off of teh internets. Can't remember. Google is your friend.

    Office on Mac sucks donkey balls. the only thing good about it is the floating palette on the right side. Word and Powerpoint aren't bad, but Excel sucks hard.
