I've got a Mid 2012 13" Macbook Pro & a Dell studio 1555 (Win 7 Ultimate) & one of them has got to go!
I'm upgrading RAM to 8GB & the HD to 1TB, so I can have 2 500GB drives for each system, but had a couple of questions.
1) can I run the windows easy transfer from dell & install on new windows partition?
2) Once I am finished, what's a good backup option? Currently using Acronis home on Dell & haven't really been using macbook long enough to accumulate anything worth backing up.
3) Anything else I'm currently NOT considering...
Any suggestions would be appreciated!

You can use Windows Easy Transfer to move files from a PC to Windows on a Mac. Install Windows and the Apple drivers for Windows first.

To backup Windows, you can use any Windows backup program.
