    Is it possible to game on the unibody Macbook or the Macbook Pro, with the new trackpad with integrated button.

    I think in most cases you would be using an external pointing device to game on a laptop.

    no not really.

    think you are playing crysis or farcry 2 (both run fine on 9400m) and you need to look through your scope then fire. how do you do it?

    two finger click will put you in your scope but how do you fire?

    its a great trackpad but as all trackpads, it simply sucks for gaming but how much it sucks would depend on the game.

    Yeah, this is one of those times where the old macbook would do better than the new one lol. This is one of the reasons why I bought my Whitebook. I just don't like the idea of not having the actual button separated from the trackpad. Although regardless, you should probably get an external mouse.
