Hello all, I am a bit dizzy from all the, what seems like, circular browsing to find what is going on.
Bought a used Penryn Macbookpro specs below.
From reading the expected specs of Penryn based machines online I am 99.999% sure that this machine is capable of multitouch gestures. As of yet there is nothing within the system preferences that lead me to believe that nothing more than 2 finger scrolling/tapping is possible. The trackpad is identical to that found on a macbookpro3.1
As this is a seller refurbished model (he seems to have a stellar rep and a good returns policy) is it possible that it is some how a 'Frankenmac' with a 3.1 top-plate, keyboard, trackpad with associated firmware on a 4.1 body! Am I going insane!
Have I missed something obvious and detrimentally stupid in my search. Is there a firmware update I seem to have in my blindspot.
My re-awakened paranoia has led to a very frustrating , and fruitless, couple of days trying to find a working 'asd' using 2meg broadband: not fun. Not sure what i might learn if I did get a copy. Would it be worth running this machine through 'asd'?
Thanks for reading
