I use a MacBook Pro and recently tried using a mouse and keyboard... my hand gets tired moving over to the mouse!
I need a MacBook Pro and trackpad setup to use with my external monitor! Either that or MacBook and trackpad might be acceptable too.
Please let me know if you would like to modify and sell one to me, or how to do this.
I may just get the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard (the laptop layout one) and a third party trackpad. I'm thinking the exact same layout and trackpad would be best though.
For others wanting to do this, what is the oldest MacBook Pro or PowerBook G4 with trackpad scrolling? Was that the original MacBook Pro?
But... gestures are coming to Apple laptops yes? Since I have not had this feature yet, I am not yet missing it. But if Apple could put a keyboard/mouse combo unit together that would be awesome, with or without gestures.
The last two gens of PowerBooks could use scrolling. Some of the earlier ones had it too but Apple never activated it. I even tried manually installing the newer .kext but it wouldn't load it. I digress.
I agree a desktop trackpad would be nice. With all the new gestures, Apple might actually do it too.
I half started a project in this vein. I keep meaning to resurrect it. Watch this space....
iScroll is a program that adds the two finger scrolling to the older laptops that apple didn't provide support for. But it has stopped working for me under leopard. I can two finger right click, but not scroll.
