“The exclusivity of Apple’s new multi-touch trackpad to the company’s MacBook Air family of notebooks won’t last long,” Kasper Jade reports for AppleInsider.
“In very much the same way that iSight video cams have become commonplace on nearly all of Apple’s personal computer systems, the Mac maker will reportedly scale the gesture-based input technology across its notebook lines during the course of the year,” Jade reports.
“The next models to receive the oversized trackpads will be updated 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro models due for an introduction in the next several weeks, people familiar with the company’s 2008 product roadmap say,” Jade reports.
“According to those same people, the new notebooks will also be the first from the Cupertino-based company to employ Penryn-based Core 2 Duo mobile process from Intel Corp., which in their most likely form for the MacBook Pro would range in clock frequency from 2.5GHz to 2.6GHz with 6MB of Level 2 cache,” Jade reports.

MacDailyNews Take: It would be nice if Apple added the MacBook Air’s multi-touch capabilities to existing MacBooks and MacBook Pros which already feature two-finger scroll, horizontal scrolling, zooming, and secondary (right) clicking via their Trackpads.
