    Hi there,
    Is there anyway to add Multi-touch hardware to my 2007 Macbook Pro?! I mean physically add the hardware that comes with the early 2008 MacBook Pro?

    Thanks

    Why, when you only need to add the software?:confused:

    You can't put the new trackpad where yours is.

    But I bought my MacBook Pro before 2008, and all these websites say I need to have bought my Laptop early 2008! I bought in December 2007!

    Oh! Wait... Yeah, you're right. Sorry.:eek:

    Now, you... MIGHT... be able to take the trackpad from an Early 2008 model and put it in your model and then get the files for four-finger gestures and the like...

    But that would be the only way to do it.

    Yaa, so can I buy the trackpad from somewhere?!? Do you have any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    The best bet is eBay or maybe iFixit.com.

    I don't see a trackpad for the Penryn models on iFixit, but try your luck.
