    Can anybody sum up which multi touch features that are unavailable when running win 7 in bootcamp on MBA 2010. Does it do three finger taps etc. Is two finger scrolling as good as in os X etc?

    Scroll page up and down, tap to click is what I know so far.

    You cant rotate pictures, zoom, swipe to turn page, or any of that.

    trackpad only moves cursor, Bootcamp win7 on iMac

    How are you managing to get any of the features besides cursor movement to work? I have new iMac, win7 installed in Bootcamp.

    Win7 recognizes the trackpad but the graphic is of a mouse. It says it's working properly, but the only thing it will do is move the cursor -- and that works only after removing the device and reinstalling it.

    Can you advise?

    Did you actually install the bootcamp drivers/software which you can make with bootcamp assistant in Mac OSX?

    Nice post; if I already have the bootcamp drivers installed, can I just download and install this over it? I have the 64 bit version.

    Just read the site.

    You'll need the Power Plan Assistant too - but it's pretty much great app too.

    It let you control the backlight of the keyboard and turn on/off wifi/bt.
