Do any of you know if it is either currently or potentially possible to upgrade a PRE-trackpad-scrolling tech Powerbook G4 with the current technology? Could it be as simple as a hardware replacement? Is the software included in the OS? Is it a Firmware issue??? I recently upgraded from a late model iBook G4 1.42GHz, to an older 1.5 GHz Powerbook G4 17" and i think the trackpad and clicker are super clumsy (or maybe its me). Regardless, the iBook trackpad was leauges above the Powerbook trackpad in both responsiveness and the included "trackpad-scrolling". Anyone? Anyone?
:cool:

It sounds like you're asking for scrolling on a non-scroll trackpad. In that case, there's a free piece of software called iScroll that enables scrolling on older macs. Hope that helps.
