    I am fed up with having to hit control every time I want to right click something. My computer doesnt have two finger click, and I'd rather have a hardware button anyway, so I would love it if apple made a "mighty trackpad" - two buttons!

    You have a MacBook Pro; you have two-finger right-click.

    Not in your sig. No complaining they do incorporate it now, and you even have the technology. You did buy another notebook, and they did incorporate right click by using two fingers.

    When was your Powerbook made? If it's pre-2005 then take a look at iScroll2

    You're complaining that your minimum-of-three-years-old computer doesn't have two-finger right-clicking and are boycotting a company that only makes notebooks that can T-F R-C?

    I'm submitting you for a Darwin. Does he have to be dead for that?

    Actually I have to agree.
    No matter if you can hold a button or use two fingers.
    I like to have 2 buttons.

    I don't have a mac yet, but I'm still curious how I can make a click left and right at the same time.

    --Edit...
    I just noticed headline was "will not buy...."
    Well count me out, I will buy a new macbook pro in week or so, but I do wish they made a 2 button thing in the future. :)

    How can you be sure without having it to try. I use my two finger click for right click flawlessly. I don't even notice it. It's habit, just like having 2 physical buttons used to be. Also, a lot of the time you can use a mouse.

    How about, I won't be buying any Apple notebook that has two buttons. :p
    I love the one button, it fits me ergonomically way better.

    Um no. I like my single click trackpad. Putting two fingers on it isn't that much of a pain. Tough luck.

    If you dont have a mac yet, please dont complain that you would rather have two buttons than two finger click. I think you will find it much faster and more efficient to do two finger clicks, so let us know what you think onceyou get a MBP. :)

    I'm with you. I hate the double buttons on those other laptops.

    Wow, I didn't know that most people felt so strongly about not having another button! I have two-finger right click enabled on my MBP but after using a ThinkPad, which has both, its difficult trying to switch to the apple method. Also... do Macbooks have two finger right click?

    People who are moaning about two-fingers + trackbutton for right-clicking obviously aren't resting their palm on the trackpad properly.

    My hand rests on the casing above the slot drive, and I move the cursor with my middle finger. My index finger hovers just above the trackpad, so when I want to two-finger scroll it is there instantly.

    Same applies for right-clicking. I don't have to move my hand at all to reach for another button no. I just place 2 fingers on the trackpad and click.

    It is so much more convenient and accessible than having two separate buttons.

    So, what exactly is your point? The PowerBook is old hardware and Apple have since enabled the feature you are desperately requesting in their latest models, which you apparently have.

    This thread should be renamed "The Learn How To Tell People To Deal With It Thread". Great practice! :D

    No, really, two-finger right click is fine. You can just tap with two fingers, also, which eliminates the button altogether, something even Windows boxes can't do!

    Just curious...
    What programs actually respond to a simultaneous left/right click? I know that Solitaire on Windows does, but that's only program I've found so far.

    Well I will get the new MBP no matter what, I did edit my reply. :)

    But I'm still curious how I can do a Both left and right click at the same time. (for some games)Is that then 1 tap on the physical button and 2 fingers on the trackpad?

    Seriously, go buy one. Any two button mouse will work. What is wrong with you people (that think Macs don't have two button mice)?
