According to open topics in the Apple discussion forum (Apple Support Communities), a large number of new owners MacBooks Pro with Retina display, released last week, are complaining of two problems: keyboard / trackpad crashes and difficulty installing Windows 8.0 and 8.1 via Boot Camp.
The keyboard / trackpad suddenly freezes on the 13-inch model and, according to reports, I need to restart the system manually so that everything returns to normal until another freeze appears. In Boot Camp, the error seems to have a connection with the partition created to install the Microsoft operating system. Users said that freezes and recording errors often happen when trying to install Windows via a USB drive or via an external DVD.
Of course, nobody likes to buy a new computer (even more a MacBook Pro with Retina display, which is not cheap) and face problems like these, however, it seems to me “simple” things that can very well be solved with a small software update / firmware.
Taking into account that there are a lot of people complaining on the Ma forum, it is very likely that a correction will come out soon, so the new iMacs, for example, received an EFI update right after the launch just to correct a similar problem.
