Multi-Touch For Older MacBooks!


Today, I just found out about a very interesting thing. If you just got a MacBook or MacBook Pro back in 2007, and you are crazy about Air’s multi-touch capabilities, I am sure you will be extremely pleased to find out that your MacBook may allow you to unleash some multi-touch magic pretty soon, without having to spend a single penny!

According to recent news, “An Apple spokesperson has told T3 that the MacBook Air’s multitouch track pad is software, not hardware, based.”, and despite the fact this wasn’t quite a secret for many, it’s nice to know it from official sources inside Apple. These being said, the next step should be obvious…

While there’s no official confirmation yet, prepare for a software update that will allow you to experience the multi-touch features of the MacBook Air in all their glory on your older MacBook or MacBook Pro computer!

How old? Well, if your MacBook already features two-finger scroll, horizontal scrolling, zooming, and secondary (right) clicking via its Trackpad, it should be enough. Don’t worry, you’ll find out about this as soon as it happens, and I hope to be able to give you some hints about when is this going to happen, in the meantime, so don’t forget to come back here from time to time, or subscribe to our FeedBurner feed!
