I actually just set this up on my 12" iBook. Pretty neat. But I'm guessing that banging on your laptop on a regular basis is probably not a good idea. Smile

How hard do you have to hit it? It doesn't look like the guy on the video hits it hard enough to do it any damage. This looks like a good idea, I tried to use multiple desktops on my ibook but I kept switching them accidentally! maybe I'm just too clumsy with my pointer!
Another reason to get a macbook it would seem!

With YouControl, you can turn off screen edge switching (lots of options). The MacBook doesn't offer anything in this department that your iBook doesn't. (depending on how old your iBook is, of course) Smile

You can adjust the sensitivity. Anything from a gentle breeze blowing over your iBook to requiring a heavy sledge hammer. Smile

Fraid my ibook is about three months too old for that!
