    I have a 13" MacBook Air with 128GB SSD and 4GB of RAM. Does anyone know or have a guess about how well I can expect Windows 10 to run in a Bootcamp partition?

    Should run ok, I tested it on a virtual machine and it ran adequately.

    If you are intending to run Windows on your Macbook Air full time, you will not have an optimal experience. The trackpad drivers and battery life are generally not a good experience. In addition, Windows runs noticeably hotter.

    I did not enjoy using one popular software makers 3rd party trackpad drivers, but maybe you will. Otherwise, Windows 10 will run fine.

    It will work for sure but it may not be the speediest setup on the planet...
