    No, this is implemented in hardware, using the same chip used in the iPhone's touchscreen—hardware not present in your MBP.

    No, this feature can't be enabled in the "older" MBP models.

    Can anyone confirm this? I've only seen one teardown of the Penryn MBP and it doesn't mention a broadcom bcm5974 controller. Plus I heard that control was not quite as fluid as the MBAs, making me think it was perhaps software emulation.

    Nope, not doable.

    The control works quite well.

    It works well for me in most cases, but I would have to say that it sucks with iPhoto. It works just randomly for me, and it even caused my iPhoto to crash once or twice.
