Is the three finger gesture supported for the 2007-2008 nonunibody macbook pros? Wondering if I can change spaces on Mountain Lion.

No, sorry.

See this: Are non-unibody macbook pros capable of lion's 3 and 4 finger multi-though gestures?

And this: Pinch to zoom on macbook pro 2007

If you would like to use these gestures you can buy a magic trackpad or magic mouse from Apple.

So, it should work only on a non-unibody 2008 then? – Roman Fox Jan 16 '13 at 12:55
If you're lucky, and have a very late non-unibody, it might work using bettertouchtool, mentioned in the linked questions. But if the option is not present in System Preferences, you're likely out of luck. – Chris A Jan 16 '13 at 18:50
