    I am running Windows 10 on 2 Macbooks (2006 and 2014) and both work fine.

    Apple do provide all the drivers you need - there is no longer a download link, you have to download them through bootcamp assistant in OSX.

    They work OK but the trackpad one is pretty feeble - it only supports right click and no gestures. If you want gestures you can get Trackpad++. The free version has to be re-installed every 2 weeks, you have to turn off driver verification and watch out for OpenCandy junk when installing. It works quite well if you are happy with that.
    Do you get any sort of BSOD or other issue from installing trackpad++/power plan? I've read that even though those worked fine in windows 8.1, installing them in windows 10 could lead to instabilities.

    I think that's the only thing keeping me from updating to windows 10. I cant leave without trackpad++

    Got a macbook pro mid 2012 by the way.

    I tested it during one of the preview builds and it worked fine and didn't crash but I don't use it - just the standard Apple trackpad driver - as I don't like the idea of disabling driver verification (which the power plan does).

    He's removed the OpenCandy from the installer and according to here you can now request a signed driver so perhaps I'll try it again. There is no mention if it on the website though.

    I wouldn't mess with the Trackpad++ drivers. They made my W8.1 unbootable and had to re-install.

    OP, 120GB of storage space that the base MBA has may be too little for dual boot depending on how many programs you have installed on both OSes. You should get one with 250GB storage in my opinion.
