    Does anyone know of a way to make the touchpad of a regular laptop function like the mouse pad of a macbook?

    Unless the trackpad supports multitouch, you are out of luck. very few non apple laptops support it, but there is always a possiblity, and you would need to be running windows 7 (assuming a windows machine) of if it is a previous gen apple laptop, you are still out of luck, becouse the hardware isnt there

    There is a project to bring two finger scrolling to Windows.

    I never got it to work on my Dell Inspiron 13 though, so YMMV.

    I think theres a few netbooks that have multitouch, mostly b/c of the terribly small trackpads. But if you already have one then your pretty much SOL
