I GOT THE NEW MACBOOK TODAY!!!

2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
2GB DDR3 RAM (I will upgrade to 4GB soon)
250GB Hard Drive

And I want to know if there is any way to change what the 4-Finger swipes do.
I want to change one of the swipes to Spaces for example...

Anybody know any way to change what the swipes do??
Please post anything you know.

Thanks!

I want to know if I can change the controls.

Apple mentions an Options button in the Trackpad preferences pane. No idea if that provides the functionality you want.

Hopefully you're OK with my suggestion...
Install Multiclutch. Works great on my Macbook Air.

Thanks, larrinski.

But I don't think that works with the new 4-Finger swipes.

Sorry bout that! There has been discussion on the developer site, and he is working on an upgrade for the new models. Once he does, I really recommend the app. It rocks!

Are you typically this big of a jerk when someone offers to help you?

At least he didn't apply the one finger-swipe.
