No trackpad gestures. No two-finger scrolling, no right-clicking. Just dragging and tapping. This makes navigating Windows 8 (and everything in it) laborious and full of suck—the opposite of what it is when working properly. I tried installing some custom drivers I found online and it cranked up my CPU usage so high I thought Mayor Bloomberg was going to declare a state of emergency.
Until Apple releases Boot Camp drivers for Windows 8, you’ll need an external mouse for right-clicking. When the touch aspects of Windows 8 are taken into account, what is needed to make good use of Microsoft’s operating system is a track pad that recognises multi-fingered swipes and gestures. You’re not going to find that at this moment with Apple hardware. Another issue is that Windows can only engage the MacBook’s Nvidia graphics card, not the on-board Intel chipset that OS X will use to extend battery life.
