Actually, that's sort of a lazy answer. If you use the keyboard shortcuts in Sketchup, it works just fine (press o while dragging on the trackpad will orbit, z will zoom (so will using two fingers), etc.). I just got one and after a couple of minutes of adjusting, I find the shortcuts to be just as easy to use as having the 3rd button.

Yes you can use the orbit and zoom SketchUp 8. Running Lion. I selected three finger swipe in the trackpad preference in system preference. Then Sketchup orbit Pan and Zoom worked. Happy Days :-). This Tarckpad is a very good device.

For some things, yes:
-standard mouse actions (clicking, dbl-clicking, right-clicking, dragging, etc.)
For others, no:
-pressing and holding middle mouse button (scroll wheel) to orbit
(this is a huge loss of functionality in Sketchup)
The Sketchup user interface is strongly built around a three button mouse with a physical scroll wheel. (I've been since 2003.)
