    How's the Force Touch trackpad performance in Bootcamp? Same as in OS X?

    I don't speak from experience, but from my using my computer's trackpad under bootcamp, you can expect weird scrolling, and mouse acceleration that just isn't the same.

    The interesting part is going to be whether it gives you force-feedback "clicks" in Windows, or whether in Windows it will act like a basic trackpad with tap-to-click, without any sort of feedback whatsoever (ewwwww).

    If it doesn't give any "click" feedback when outside of OS X, then for frequent Bootcamp/Windows users, buying a non-Force-Touch model of Macbook now might be in your best interest.

    It works about the same as it does in OSX. You can't force click, but you can "regular" click just fine haptic feedback and all. Page scrolling is opposite (as has always been the case with Windows), but aside from that everything works normal because of the drivers Apple includes when installing Windows via Boot Camp.
