You can run windows in a virtual machine with a program like Parallels, or use WINE to run windows software on a Mac. :)

Taylor is correct. I use Parallels 5 and I have had a pretty good experience with that software. BUt, I must mention that when you are running a virtual machine you are splitting your machine's resources between MacOSX and Windows. So if you would like to play games, I suggest you max out the RAM and get a faster HDD, in order to have enough resources to play GPU intensive games. A MacBookPro would serve this purpose better as it has faster CPU, 8GB RAM max.

Very true Majesty, as an avid gamer, I an tell you that it won't be the best playing experience, but it should get the job done. You might also look into Valve's games for Mac that are coming out - they're starting to re-do some of their code base to work on Macs.

It's worth noting that the MacBook Core 2 Duo doesn't have a dedicated video card (to my knowledge), so game will probably run really slowly. I have one of these computers, and Steam runs, but none of the games do. They say "Your video card is unsupported."

I'm surprised no one mentioned Boot Camp.

Free (comes with MacOS) . All you need is a copy of Windows, and you can dual-boot your Mac with Windows. Benefit over virtualisation is that you get 100% of your hardware performance, especially when it comes to graphic.
