    Dear Friend..

    It doesn't create any big difference whether you buy a 40$ or some other because MacBook don't have any issue to install the Windows 8 as it has all supported hardware requirements which you require for windows 8.
    But I suggest you to buy this 40$ MacBook Air because it would become more compatible with your Windows 8 OS.

    And here are the requirements for Windows 8:-

    I hope that MacBook Air have this required configuration which helps in installing OS 8 in Mac,

    Thank you..

    Hello friend,



    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.............

    Yes, you can definitely install Windows 8 in your Mac book. But for these
    you should check that your Mac book have the minimum requirements to
    install the Windows 8 in your Mac.

    1.Firstly insert the CD of the Windows 8 in your Mac book or download it from iternet.

    2.Then you open the 'Applications'.

    3.Then you go to 'Utilities' > 'Boot Camp Assistant'.

    4.Then from there you install the Windows 8 in your Mac.

    5.Before doing this you should select the drive in which you want to install.

    6.Then install the boot camp software in your Mac.

    That's it you can create a dual boot in your Mac or if you want only one you can delete the Mac OS.

    All the best.........
