I dont know if I just didn't see it but I can't find answer for my question - if I could use both os x lion and windows on my macbook pro while using bootcamp. I want to use windows only for playing games and lion for every other stuff. Also how much would it cost to install windows 7?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1)

    One or the other, not both. Both is only possible if you install Windows in a VM instead of BootCamp, but that method is very poor for gaming.

     

    PS:

     

    You can buy Windows 7 (Home Premium) for around $100

    You can use Boot Camp to run BOTH OS X and Windows, but they can not be run at the same time. The cost of Windows 7 can be found by searching the web. Generally > $100. But that will be the only cost, as boot camp is a free utility that ONLY requires the windows disk.
