    I've got one of the "first gen" Unibody MBPs, and from what I understand, inertial scrolling is (was?) hardware related and come out on MBPs after mine.

    However, I just installed 10.6.5 and have noticed that when I scroll, it seems to drag on for a bit after I let go, depending how fast I was scrolling - basically an inertial scroll.

    I haven't seen any threads of notes about this anywhere, can anyone confirm what I'm seeing?

    I think 10.6.5 puts inertial scrolling on all MacBook Pro models (if they support it). For first unibody owners, inertial scrolling was introduced though a trackpad update but I guess Apple bundled it with the update yesterday if you previously didn't install the trackpad update.

    So to simply answer your question, yes, you do have inertial scrolling.

    I have an older MacBook Pro, early 2008 non-unibody, and I now have inertial scrolling with 10.6.5 too. I love it!

    I've had intertial scrolling before this update (i believe the previous one added it to all mbps) - I have the 2.4 15" unibody

    I have a late 2006 MBP and I don't notice anything different.

    I have a pre-Santa Rosa non-unibody MBP and I do NOT have the inertial scrolling. Must be my older trackpad hardware cannot support it.

    theres an option in mouse and trackpad system preferences items for scrolling with or without inertia, i think it was in a prior update.

    It seems to have gotten rid of the drag problem experienced by 1 finger drag users. As a last-gen non-unibody MBP user, I've got to say I like it, but I had to re-enable my 3 finger drag trick (located in my sig).

    I have a late 2007 MBP, 10.6.5 just changed it to the intertial scrolling. I don't really like it, but I guess I'll just get used to it; it's not that bad. I just have to hold my fingers on the pad instead of letting go. In the next few weeks I'll probably think it's awesome, so *shrug*

    Actually after using it abit, it is kinda nice but I noticed that when you scroll at certain lower speeds it makes the text and images in the browser shake a little bit, and it's kinda distracting.

    is inertia scrolling on for the multi-touch trackpads that were intro'd with the unibodies?

    I thought that they added it all when they released the magic trackpad.
