    Hey all!!

    I just got my macbook in today, and its great!!

    Just got a few questions/problems.

    For one...bootcamp.
    I know its in beta right now, but its not working at all. When I try to install the drivers, it gets an error and stops the install, anyone else have this problem? Also I can't connect to the net when in windows.

    Another is the heat. I checked using the widget, and its up to 108 degrees F.

    Is that normal? And I checked for that plastic strip where the vent is, and there is nothing there. Thanks!

    108˚F? That's just 42˚C. If that's right, your MacBook is running cool. Get worried if it gets to 108˚C.

    Most readings (even manufacturer specs) are done in Celcius. 42C or 108F is cool. Nothing to worry about there.
