It also enables inertial scrolling and the three-finger drag gesture in recent MacBook and MacBook Pro notebooks.
The trackpad gestures are one of my favorite things about the Mac, and this one is no different. Awesome update. Works very well on my early '08 MBP.
Works great on my Mid 2009 MacbookPro 15. Inertia scrolling is sick!
How is inertia[l] scrolling "sick"? You end up scrolled past wherever you stopped with little input as to where you're actually going to stop. One of the first things I did on my early-2010 Core i7 MBP was turn "Scroll with momentum" to "Scroll without momentum."
I understand that this is a potentially cool feature and potentially useful to a lot of people; but it's nothing groundbreaking. I like my trackpad to react exactly how I use it, which is what I get with inertial scrolling off. I think my only complaint with the review I'm replying to is that it seems to imply that inertial scrolling is some sort of awesome magical thing...
I do have to say, I *love* the single-button trackpad on my new MBP. I didn't think I'd like it at first, having a Dell Mini with similar, but Apple has really done a great job on designing this. So both us inertial and non-inertial scrollers can co-exist peacefully, I think. :) (Not to mention the other possible multi-finger actions, especially using 3rd party software...)
