Currently Being ModeratedMay 18, 2006 3:51 PM (in response to neoxp)I have two MB's one has a crisp trackpad button while the other had a mushy button. I fixed the mushy button quite easily. Take out the battery and look at the metal panel directly underneath the trackpad button. You'll see a circular indention in the metal. If you press lightly on the indention and at the same time press on the trackpad button you'll notice that the trackpad button's response is more crisp (at least mine was). I just pressed on the spot a few times to force the metal to bow every so slightly (not perceptible to the eye). Now my button clicks quite nicely across the entire button.Macbook (Stealth edition), Mac OS X (10.4.6), 2GHz / 1GB / 80 GB 7200 RPM / Superdrive / Bootcamp

Currently Being ModeratedMay 24, 2006 1:27 PM (in response to krdupont)Hey, everyone,
I have a user who is having the EXACT same issue with his trackpad button. He's taken it back to the Apple Store, and they told him, "oh, it's just like that. Deal."
If that's Apple's take on how to ship new models out to users, I'm keeping my 1.5 GHz aluminum PowerBook...
Get on the ball, Apple. Fix this.
Pretty please.MacBook 2.0 GHz, Mac OS X (10.4.6)

Just hope the heat from the laptop (65C while running Adium and iTunes) doesn't ignite it.
