    I don't like the inverted operation of the track pad. I couldn't find the option to change this. Anyone know if this can be changed?

    1. Due to the fact you bought Lion OS X in the first few hours of availability, I can safely assume that you love to live on the cutting edge of computer technology.

    2. Due to the fact that you own a Mac, I can safely assume that you like the way Apple designs their software.

    3. Due to the fact you are posting on MacRumors, I can safely assume you are an Apple geek.


    Force yourself to try the new scrolling system for a few days.

    It may be hard, but I believe you will like the new system.

    If not, then go back to the old system.


    I speak from experience. When I went from a MacBook with a trackpad and separate mouse key to a new MacBook Pro with an integrated key, I HATED it!

    Now I can't live without it.

    Good luck!
