    Considering that current Macbooks and MBP have some two-finger gestures for the mouse pad, can it be upgraded to have the same new gestures found on the MacBook Air? Would/could this come in with Leopard 10.5.2?

    I don't see any reason why this couldn't be added at some point.

    But I would be surprised if it appeared so quickly on the MB and MBP. Seems to me like it would be a selling point for the MBA, one which would lose its meaning if the other notebooks suddenly had it, too.

    AppleInsider claims to have info that it is coming in the next generation of MacBook Pros. Don't know whether the current hardware could technically support it, though I'd bet they want to officially support it only on the larger trackpads.

    If it doesn't come in 10.5.2, hopefully it will come to Sidetrack :)

    I think we would have heard if it was coming in 10.5.2, unless they've been withholding it from the seeds.

    Darn - I have a Macbook

    Well, I hope it comes to Macbooks too, but I have a feeling I'm going to have to buy a new laptop to get it.

    i think the selling point of the MBA is not the multi touch

    but the thinness of it, you know how many macusers have been wanting a ultra portable, and they have it now

    so i wouldn't be surprise to see the MT on 10.5.2

    The MacBook Pros already have MultiTouch, and I'm not sure about it, but i think the standard MacBooks do aswel. ^_^
