The charge port is generally on the left hand side near the screen. And no you can't charge via USB.

Looks like an 07/08 Macbook. Generally the 15" models require the 85w adapter.

The chargers aren't cheap unfortunately, usually $130. These guys have them for a bit cheaper. Or check TM for 2nd hand. https://www.laptopbattery.co.nz/Laptop-adapters/Apple/Apple-85w-Magsafe-A1343-1222-Adapter-LBN51470.htm

OS X is pretty easy to use.

But yes you can load Windows if you have a spare license/CD key.

OSX is far more polished than Windows IMO.

If you use programs that must use Windows you can install Windows using Bootcamp Assistant and then choose OSX or Windows on startup.
