When did Apple start pushing out the trackpads that were also the clicking button?

    I'm asking about trackpads that were on laptops.
    If you need something to compare to, look at the magic trackpad on the Apple site.

    Introduction of the unibody MacBooks. That's the second half of 08.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Do you know if the trackpads from '08 are gesture friendly? As in able to do all the swiping gestures in Snow Leopard or even upcoming Lion?

    I'm asking because I want a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air for college, but wanna save cash by buying an older model.

    I'm using one now. Yes, they have the gestures. It was the first laptop to introduce the gestures. I believe it supports all of the new ones too, but I'm not positive.

    I am also a student, and this is a great laptop, but if I were you I would go for the 2nd generation unibody. They are still going to be cheaper, and the battery life was boosted a significant amount. I get about 1 1/2 hours of battery with this laptop, and that can be annoying if I want to use it for a 3 hour class.

    Some of the non unibody MBP support multitouch gestures as well.

    How could I go about finding the 2nd gen unibody MacBook Pro online?
