Same here. My squishiness came after about a week. I tried to live with it for a week, but I hated it. I brought it in to the Apple Store today (the 14th day after buying my original MacBook) and they swapped it out. Gave me a new one. They agreed, non-responsive mouse button is not ok. If you're having this problem, bring it in to a Apple Store.
ok, probably a stupid question, but with the heat issues and whatnot on the macbook, is anyone worried about the paper under the trackpad burning or causing a fire? i realize that the battery doesn't get THAT hot, but I'm just wondering...
I tried the paper trick and it works like a charm. I'm hesitant to take my macbook back and exchange it because i've had it 12 days, and it's the only issue i've had with it. (knock on wood)
Can people whose MacBook has been exchanged confirm that the problem doesn't come back after a few weeks of use ?
I have a MacBook and it has a totaly silencious and "squishy" rackpad button which make it nearly unusable (impossible to know if I clicked or not) and I plan to have it repaired (yes, it is more than two weeks old, I can't have it exchanged). But since I'd like to be sure that it will not reappear later...
I had the same problem, but I unchecked the "Ignore
accidental track pad input" in the KeyBoard and Mouse
Preference pane. Now it doesn't do that anymore.
Try it. It worked for me.
When I received my MacBook it had an already unusable squishy mouse button, so I returned it to get a new one. The new one was slightly better.
I tried this fix and I must say that first impressions are that it really improves things. Not only with the mouse button, which in the meantime had become so unresponsive that I had to hammer it with a one-in-three luck ratio, but also with the keyboard.
I think I set the 'accidental mouse input' setting a while back and looking back, I can connect that to a worsening of the situation.
Now that I have unset that, the situation has improved immediately. I think I will also look at the physical situation, but I can corroborate that this has really made a change for me.
