From what I've read (HERE FOR INSTANCE, page 2 of a 3 page article) you will need new h/w to use all features, and specifically what you asked about...
From it :
The Samsung Series 9 notebook on which I tested this release doesn’t have a touch screen. It does, however, incorporate a new trackpad design. In combination with some admittedly early (and buggy) drivers, the new hardware design recognizes the swipe gestures that work on a touchscreen—swipe in from the right to expose the Charms menu, swipe from the left to switch between running apps, use multi-touch gestures to scroll up down, and side to side. The new gestures can’t be retrofitted to existing trackpads, unfortunately, because those existing devices don’t have subtle enough edge detection.
Now that said, it could be fixed by the h/w vendor with some s/w or flash downloads. I'd try to 'ask' the vendor for a definitive answer before ordering.
