I have a 2007 MBP as well, and the only gestures that the trackpad has supported since its original system, Leopard, is two-finger scroll and two-finger click. Upgrading to Lion will not change this. If you need the three, four, and five finger gestures, the Magic Trackpad should work perfectly for you. You do not need any multi-finger gestures to use Lion though. They are just there to make navigating the system easier. I use my MBP flawlessly on Lion and on Mountain Lion, but if you really need the *more than 2 finger* gestures, then a Magic Trackpad is the perfect companion to an older laptop.

Thanks for this complete info. On the whole would you say you've gained by moving to Lion? Is your 2007 MBP slower because of it (I've heard this complaint). I'm definitely going to test it first.
