    I was surfing through all the features avaiable in the complete selection of refinements for Snow leopard ( and this caught my eye...

    Multi-Touch gestures in
    older Mac models.
    All Mac notebooks with Multi-Touch trackpads now support three- and four-finger gestures.

    Now i have a late 2008 white macbook pro 2.1GH and wanted to know if the trackpad that it has would be included in this statement, as i know that it is two-finger touch capable for scrolling etc but i wasnt sure if apple count the trackpad's featured in the old plastic MB's as multi-touch. I just wanted to know if, for example it was a MBP/MBA only kind of, or if it included all MB's/MBP's/MBA's Plastic or otherwise. I am only interested because if so the ability of Mutli-touch would be incredibly useful and the statement itself seemed abit vague, also there was no direct mention of it at WWDC press conference.

    Aside from the 2 finger scrolling they do not support multi touch. My friend just got the new updated macbook (white) and it doesn't support the 3 & 4 fingers.

    Not for the MacBook White. They only meant the early 2008 MacBook Pro and the first generation MacBook Air.

    ...maybe with future whitebook updates this will become a reality...
