    A while back I remember hearing about apple's bootcamp drivers for windows 7 sucking, with many problems. Have these issues been resolved? Cause I'd like to run W7 natively (2011 mbp) and wonder if I'll run into any issues.

    Have you guys had any problems, or is it smooth sailing?

    Thx

    man windows in bootcamp runs great big time,it probably almost runs better than a win machine with new mbpro,s.[ok thats juz a guess lol]there are many tweaks you can use too,to get even better performance,

    you will find a bit more heat in windows,maybe 5-10-15 degrees at worst,but the mac can handle that,as for drivers,i did a reinstall of my drivers 2 days ago,took the display drivers back to vga[microsoft default]then did a reinstall[off disc],and presto,the games are running so much better this time,big diff,
    honestly,you will have no probs at all.;)

    Runs like a dream on the 2011 15" i7 macbook pro.
    this includes complex audio and gaming. no driver issues at all - simple install, and run bootcamp from the disk.


    one issue i encountered was the boot camp autoplay opened the wrong thing - not a problem though, just had to browse to the bootcamp setup folder.
