    I have the 12" MacBook and I just found out that it does not support bluetooth in bootcamp.

    Anyone think appple will eventually get around to releasing a bluetooth windows driver for it?

    This is very surprising and unfortunate for me,
    I am going to have to return my 12" MacBook

    Maybe you should adjust the title of the topic?
    Most likely Apple will eventually release a bootcamp update.

    That is surprising that they don't have a Bluetooth driver- but I do think that Boot Camp has always been a second-class citizen as far as Macs are concerned. They may update it eventually, but it's kind of a niche at this point.

    hmm seems weird... they wouldn't add the drives to work with it. The best windows boxes are macs. :D

    Thats a solution from 2009. Are you implying that Apple has not resolved this in the last 6 years?

    This thread title is link bait if there ever was one.

    To change the title, click edit on your original post. Then click on Go Advanced. Edit the title and then submit.
