Further Apple details the process of installing a fresh copy of Windows 10 on a target Mac, while also covering upgrades from previous 32-bit or 64-bit Windows versions.

Microsoft currently provides its 64-bit operating system as an ISO file, installation DVD or on a USB flash drive installer. Users with a valid Windows 7/8.1 licensce can update to the Windows 10 for free, but that won't be the case for most Mac users.

Before you get too excited and start jumping joy, let's mention a minor catch. While Apple installs their OS X Yosemite in the SSD partition of their hard drives, the Windows 10 will get installed in the HDD partition. This means that you may not recieve an optimal performance from your Macbook. Nevertheless hope that Apple solves this minor issue sooner than later.
