Tell me about your experiences running Windows 7 on a MacBook Air.
I'm looking at replacing my ancient ThinkPad with a MacBook Air, primarily for the portability. Sticking with Windows 7, since I like it and know it well and have no reason to switch.
What is this configuration like in practice? I've seen this article
but would like more personal anecdata. Specific things I'm wondering about:
- can you do a smooth
2-finger scroll like in OS X? How smoothly does the trackpad function in general under Windows 7? (this is my #1 concern)
- can you remap the keyboard to have convenient
Delete, PageDown, and PageUp keys (that don't require pressing Fn in combination)? if so, where do you put them?
- any problems with power management/battery life/overheating/etc.?
- any comments on Lenovo's new ThinkPad U300s as a possible alternative?
Lastly, is there any way I can actually try out this configuration in person before buying the laptop? I'm in the Boston area.
