    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.........

    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..
