Mac Laptops come in many models.  The model number should be on the bottom.
Old macs were PowerPC chips, New are Intel chips, yours is Intel.
They are various screen sizes - 11, 13, 15 inch and are white plastic or aluminum.

Macs came with BootCamp, allowing Windows to be installed on a separate partition.
There probably is a Mac OSX partition, you can choose the partition to boot from by holding the OPTION key down at startup.  There should be two choices OSX and BootCamp.

If you do not have your Mac's install DVD, $20 will get you a OSX 10.6 DVD
