    Santa Rosa MacBooks did not have a multi-touch trackpad. So, no.

    I can use 2 fingers gesture with my SR macbook pro...

    Multi = more than one ;)

    Another lie from Apple and I don't feel snow leopard is even faster on my mac... One good feature is the preview for .ai files. that's it.

    Mmmm...
    As far as I know when I put 2 fingers on my MBP SANTA ROSA track-pad and slip them down : it scrolls down...
    But, my track-pad is not multi touch track-pad. :eek:

    From Apple:
    http://www.apple.com/macosx/refinements/enhancements-refinements.html

    "Multi-Touch gestures in
    older Mac models.
    All Mac notebooks with Multi-Touch trackpads now support three- and four-finger gestures. "
    ;)

    I have the SR mbp too

    basically you are arguing semantics

    our trackpad can track 2 fingers at once

    the multitouch trackpads can do 4 fingers at once.

    This is amazingly clear. There exists a "multi-touch" trackpad - see "features" section of MBP and MBA and a trackpad that has "two-fingerscroll"- see "features" section for Macbook. Apple's marketing on this since January 2008 is very straightforward.

    He's using semantics of the use of "multi" to somehow transform hardware so it supports multi-touch. Its a great feat of mental gymnastics honestly.

    Sorry about that... guys. I didn't know about that marketing stuff. My bad...
    Now I know how to call my track-pad and it's not "Multi-Touch"
    I still think it's subtle. :p
