    Hi all

    I was in the Covent Garden, London Apple Store the other day trying to decide on a colour (ended up going with silver - looks best with the black keys, I think)

    While there I was unable to get any of their 12” retina MacBooks to do a 3-finger drag of a window. I checked system prefs and the option to turn it on / off didn’t even appear.

    3-finger drag works fine on my 2009 13” MBP with latest OS updates, and worked fine on an iMac in-store (after enabling in system prefs) so I don’t think I was missing anything obvious.

    Can anyone else confirm that 3-finger drag is gone from the new MacBooks. Not the end of the world, but a bit odd ..

    I think someone on here said it was in the accessibility options now. I don't have my MacBook yet to check, but will see if I can find the source.
