I found the tap to click setting for the trackpad setting somewhat of a pain to use, but that was before they released Boot Camp drivers that were Windows 7 compliant. However, if you just turn tap to click off and use it so that you have to click the trackpad to select things, it works absoltely fine.No, it runs worse than a PC because the trackpad drivers are absolutely terrible and unuseable.
Why would Windows be better on a Mac? You put up with some driver bugs using Windows on a Mac under bootcamp, but it's not too bad. I'm just not sure I'd buy one for that purpose. You said better. What problems are you having with your current machines? Also are they older models?Well I have an AlienWare Laptop, and a Dell Desktop with 2monitors, so I was just more curious if maybe Windows ran better on a Mac.
I disagree that the bootcamp trackpad drivers are unusable. They might not function as well as they do in something like a Dell, but I don't have anything to compare with. I'm using W7 on a 2011 MBP.No, it runs worse than a PC because the trackpad drivers are absolutely terrible and unuseable.
But typically macs are quieter than typical "Dells" and reasonably fast, so in that aspect, it runs as expected.
Well with a Mac you'd have to buy a retail installation of Windows 7. Either hunt down and get rid of the bloatware or do the same (retail install) on the Windows box, and you'll have a similar experience in that regard. You really shouldn't worry about how many drivers pop up in your task manager. That's just a weird perception thing.I find my windows 7 install is better on my 2010 MBP than other machines I've used with Windows 7 (my Asus in my signature being a tie honestly). The thing i really notice compared to other machines, is how few processes and the lower idle memory usage the MBP has compared to the PC. On PCs i normally see between 80-100 processes at startup (even when i've removed bloatware and other non-essentials), whereas the MBP is less than 20. Computers like Dells and HPs have so much running that is pretty much brand specific its ridiculous. Sure the MBP rolls some of those processes into the one because of the bootcamp driver (thus lack of individual drivers), but overall the memory usage of this is much less than the cumulative of other systems of the same sort of things. I'd say from my experience, Windows runs better on my mac than most PCs.
