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.
