Seriously, what's up with the MBP trackpad?

    Having seen, and to a lesser extent, used the trackpads on the Air and the MacBook, all I can say is why is the trackpad on the Pro so small? The one on the Air is huge and it's the best trackpad I've ever used! The MB one, while smaller, at least uses all of the space it can. Anyone agree with me on this? I almost am tempted to return my MBP and get the Air simply because of the way it feels.

    Other question: As it is a refurb, it's the older 2.2 GHz model. Does anyone know of a way to shoehorn multi-touch, or at least a few of the multi-touch capabities, to the older Pro? I remember the PowerBook's iScroll2 with fondness - a driver like that would be awesome, if it's at all possible.

    The multi-touch capabilities on the new MBP (penryn) are hardware related, as far as I know there is no way to do the same on the old models.

    It knows the difference between having one, two and three fingers on it.
