Thanks for all the replies. I'll get myself bootcamped and take it from there.

Hopefully I'll be back with something to show soon, or some more questions.

Is anyone here using the new MacBook Pro with the 750M ?

I just installed windows on a new macbook pro with the 750m. It works, but it sure does get hot quickly! I made a simple geo to instance some boxes on a grid. The framerate dropped to around 30 and the fans kicked on, and I couldn't even touch the aluminum right below the screen. Perhaps this is normal for graphics intensive apps on the mbp... I am new to the mac world.

Im using it and it works fine. Trackpad doesn't make the best TouchDesigner mouse, but it does work.

The heat is currently related to the fact that in Windows, on a Macbook Retina at least, there's no control over the graphics card switching, you're always using the 750M, it's just always on. Once it gets going, it'll put out heat. Which means basically no matter what you're doing in Windows, your battery will drain significantly faster. Hopefully a firmware or Bootcamp update will be released soon.

I've found putting a Speck plastic hardshell case on my macbook really helps dissipate heat along the bottom. I really recommend it.

I've been trying to use touch on a bootcamped mac, and I must agree that the trackpad just doesent work right. Are there any tips for configuring the trackpad to work properly with touch? I cant seem to get right click and drag working in order to select Ops.

My network drag has started working. No drag to select though.

Hi Elburz,
how is the performance of the Mac with 750m in terms of framerate, general load etc?

Pretty good. I only do auxiliary work on it, as I use more powerful machines for performances and installs. I'm happy with it though.
