    Macbook - multi touch or not?
    I have a new Macbook 2.4ghz and I can use two-finger scrolling on it, which I understood to be one of the features of multi-touch. However, looking through the buyer's guide in Mac Format, it says that a disadvantage is that there is no multi-touch. Wiki also says Macbooks don't have it.

    Is my understanding of multi-touch incorrect, or is it something the latest models have but older Macbooks don't?

    No it's not multi-touch. That just the way of scrolling with all of the trackpads. The multi-touch is only on the MBPs.

    Yea... The "real" multitouch consists of the three finger swipe, pinch to zoom, and rotate gestures...

    No as others have stated, however for new buyers viewing the thread, its extremely likely we'll see new macbooks in the near future and i'm nigh on certain multi-touch will be added to the line.
