    I have several pcs notebooks (work/home) along with my new aluminum macbook and other macs......going absolutely insane when web browsing on the PCs without multi-touch gestures.

    I kept trying the two finger scrolling or swiping to move forward or back. I thought it was was broken until I realized that I can not do it on the PC I was using. I think I tried for 5 minutes trying to figure out what was wrong.

    Just curious is anyone else had this happen to them.

    Uh.... ya... about that...

    Ya, say I tried to two finger scroll on my iPhone, felt pretty silly. I love the new multi-touch gestures on the macbook, 4 finger up and down is absolutely great, hot corners is no longer needed.

    No.

    Macbook is white.

    No Brand POS lap top for work is dull grey/suicidally dull black.

    And I can tell the difference!

    Two finger scrolling should be mandatory in every laptop from now on...
    My eee pc has it, and that's the only reason I'm keeping it.


    I think what I keep doing on other laptops is actually two-finger tap (right click).

    Almost broke an Acer trackpad by trying to click. Also tried to double click and scroll the same way I do on my Macbook... I felt dumb xD

    I keep using two finger scrolling on my friend's laptop whenever they ask for help, it annoys me.

    Same here, I tend to do the same gestures on my work laptop and it's annoying that it doesn't work. :) AND the PC laptops small touchpad seem soooo outdated just by looking at it.
