MacBook Air :: Glass Trackpad 11" - Bottom Line Air Trackpad Seems More Polished

Dec 21, 2010

I have an late 08 unibody Mbp and a 11 mba, I have noticed the glass trackpad on the air is much closer to the glass on an iphone in the way your finger reacts to it... the least bit of moisture and your finger doesn't glide as easily. On the pro it seems to have more of a coating to allow for smoother use under these normal conditions (humidity). Has anyone else noticed this? bottom line the air trackpad almost seems more polished.

MacBook Air :: Actually Got A Glass Trackpad?

Nov 7, 2008

I was reading and old review of the macbook air on apple insider and at the last page of the 5page review they have high quality pictures showing off the air at different angles. Some of them are showing the trackpad and u can clearly see what looks to be a glass coating, much in the same way as the new macbook and pro has.Knowing that the air was the first computer that got the "brick" enclosure without apple telling us about it untill recently. Maby they wanted to save this little cool atribute also?

Simple question. I know it isn't the no-button trackpad (thank God), but is it glass like the updated ones?

My macbook pro is Early 2010 model. I had it for like 4 months now. For some reason, my macbook pro's trackpad is slow. It doesn't scroll fast and it freezes on me. Not the macbook pro, but glass trackpad is just unresponsive.

MacBook Pro :: A Glass Trackpad Is On The Top Of My List ?

Sep 27, 2008

It seems everyone hates the idea of a glass trackpad, but for me a glass track pad is on the top of my list of things I want in the next macbook/pro.Im not talking about putting a screen under the trackpad but just making the surface of the trackpad glass, its so much more durable, I have never seen a iPod Touch or iPhone with a worn out screen but after just a few months normal trackpads start to wear out on me, my first gen macbook's trackpad is completely worn out in the middle.

MacBook Air :: No Glass Trackpad On The New System?

Oct 15, 2008

How certain is it that there is no new buttonless glass trackpad on the revised MBA? The general consensus seems to be so, but is it based on a real assertion from Apple or just an assumption?It seems that people initially thought that the CPU had not been updated on the Air just because Jobs didn't explicitly announce that on the press conference, could it be the same case with the glass trackpad?

MacBook Pro :: Uneven Glass Trackpad In New System

I was just noticing on my shiny new unibody MacBook Pro that the glass trackpad is uneven. At the bottom left side, it's basically flush with the surrounding case. But then it dips down on the bottom right to below the surrounding case. Is this normal, and has anyone else seen the same?

Hardware :: Apple Investigating With MacBook Pro's Glass Trackpad

Nov 3, 2008

A new buyer of Apple's uninbody notebooks emailed Steve Jobs about issues he was having with the unit's new glass trackpad and hinge, and reports getting a prompt reply via the telephone addressing his problems.The main issue he reported was the new trackpad's failure to register every physical click, a problem AppleInsider noted in its in-depth review. The Apple representative that called back reported that the company is looking into the complaints, but has no immediate resolution. The user also complained about the display hinge on the new model, which now has a more precise feel but less friction, allowing the lid to fall shut by gravity when held at an angle, such as when laying in bed. A video in our review of the new MacBook Pro highlights this new design change over previous 'Aluminum' PowerBook and MacBook Pro models.

MacBook :: Unibody Space Between Glass Trackpad And Enclosure ?

Jul 28, 2009

I didn't have a chance to take a picture, but I can take one when I get home if needed.I never noticed this before, until I recently compared it to another Macbook, but my glass trackpad has a different feel, and unlike the other unibody macbook, the trackpad is not flush with the enclosure, and there is a small space on the left side, and an even smaller space on the right side.I don't want to take it into the store, if this is something that is normal, or within spec. Aside from this issue, the trackpad works without issue and everything else is great.

MacBook Pro :: Glass Trackpad Too Sensitive Lack Of Resistance

Feb 7, 2010

I've had my Macbook Pro since mid 2009. It's been great, never had any real problems. Then in about October, I noticed one side of my trackpad wasn't offering as much resistance as it was before. I just ignored it, didn't mind too much. But it progressively got worse, and eventually got so sensitive that I couldn't even scroll without it clicking when I didn't want it too.I was pretty upset, called apple, they told me to send it in and fixed it for free. It was all very nice, orderly, and quick. So I was satisfied.But, lo and behold, it's at it again. I can't believe it. It hasn't gotten so sensitive that I can't use it yet, but I'm very upset right now. I have no idea why it's doing this. It's not really overheating, I have never dropped or hit my macbook. I'm the only one who uses it. I don't abuse it at all.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad On I7 Not Working From Very Bottom?

Apr 26, 2010

I was wondering if anyone with a i7 macbook pro could test to see if the very bottom of your trackpad responds to anything. Right now I can't get it to register a single thing if my finger is at the very bottom and sliding horizontally along. The strange thing is it works just fine in all other parts. I noticed it because as I use the pad I would get up to that point and think hey why is my cursor not moving anymore. Can anyone confirm this is how it is supposed to be or is my trackpad a lemon.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Sticking Towards The Bottom?

Aug 26, 2014

I have a problem with my MacBook Pro and its the fact that the trackpad is now sticking towards the bottom so there isn't a tactile click anymore, the trackpad just goes down. Im wondering if this is because I accidentally dropped something sticky into the bottom left corner or if it's just worn out. The bottom right and the middle of the trackpad is still clicking as if new. 

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mavericks (10.9.4), Early 2013

MacBook :: Disable MB Trackpad Button But Not The Whole Trackpad?

Apr 8, 2009

My MB's trackpad button is spoilt, I think there's something wrong with the spring which makes it unclickable and sometimes remains pressed.

Is there anyway to disable only the trackpad button but not the whole trackpad? Tapping still works, but the MB mistakens it as dragging sometimes because the button is stuck as a pressed button.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Making Squeaking Sound / Sound Comes When I Depress Trackpad

Jan 13, 2009

Every time I depress my trackpad (the one built into my MBP 15" mid 2009) It is doing a slight squeak...Now I'm meticulous about how well I keep my beloved MBP... but I do use it everyday for many things (Including design, word processing, accounts, pwning the microsoft network at my office)

But I am guessing that these things are built to last... and shouldn't have an effect on how much I have used it right... Should I take it to Apple and let them have a look at it is there a quick thing that I can do to mend it? Or should I just get over it and accept it as quirk of it's character?

IMac :: Glass Panel Bent At Bottom?

Jul 5, 2010

I took my iMac panel off to clean and when I put it back I noticed as you run your finger from the bottom of the panel left to right or right to left, the glass begins to get thicker and eventually overlap just barely the metal in the middle. I can't remember if it was like this or not before, so I am wondering is this bent? And if so what should I do?
