    The 29 USD Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Upgrade DVD has them. Have you looked here too?

    I don't have bootcamp and i think that i can't get it. I see only updates for bootcamp, but i don't see the original file in that list.

    i think from the 2009 MBP and above, the drivers for Windows 7 is included in the Mac OSX Install DVD. Just pop the disc in when youre on the Windows side and navigate to drivers folder!

    Just did it on my 2010 13"

    Just a question, WHY do you have a macbook with NO mac os at all, not even a couple gigs?

    I also thought it is odd but you cannot find bootcamp drivers online. (Only the updates)
    Apple only puts them on the OSX DVD, because they regard it as a part or feature or OSX. Sort of in the way even if you only want to run Windows on a MB you'd have to buy OSX. The weird thing about it that you get OSX with every Mac anyhow thus they could simply put the freaking drivers for convenience online in Microsofts driver database where Win7 so simply and easily can download stuff all alone without any freakin issues.
    You shall never forget you're not supposed to use Windows probably and it has to be a little inconvenient. Same reason the drivers are still crap and a Lenovo can run the same battery life with similar specs as MBP in OSX while a MBP's battery life is cut in half when using Windows.
