    No. Thats why they make the Aluminium one and the Macbook Pro.

    Oh ha.
    That's a good point.
    They made the White MacBook to have no multitouch to not eat the Aluminum MacBook Sales.

    You could have installed iScroll- it would have given two-finger scrolling to your G4

    Heh, yeah.... With the first G4's Airport was a $79 addon card as well, and I think bluetooth may have been an addon as well. Thing ran like a champ from 12/2003 till the Aluminum models came out.

    Oh well. If I ever need to use it again for anything, I'll be sure to download that tool!

    It also now has the two finger right click, which is a welcome addition. I was miffed it was available in Boot Camp but not in OSX, but just as I was about to ask about it, the update arrived.

    My friends early 2008 black MacBook has this feature, I don't think that it's a new feature for the new white MacBooks.

    Feels like when the G4 came out, and was new :p

    But seriously, I love it. Internet video, fast and smooth. Not relegated to the 360p setup on Hulu.

    The only issue I have now is that any Viacom channel's website won't load Flash videos for me (Comedy Central, VH1, etc) (Updated to Flash 10 too!)
