Users report issues with new MacBook's glass trackpadBy Julio Franco
Apple introduced a substantial number of improvements and changes on its MacBook laptop line last month, both inside and out. Besides the better looks and thinner frame, the new MacBook's exterior design boasted of a stronger aluminum chassis and a large glass trackpad that could register multi-touch gestures, but most importantly it would act (the whole trackpad area) as a button instead of using a standard standalone button.
Now users that jumped in early and acquired the new laptops are complaining about the trackpad registering clicks erratically. A thread in Apple's official forum shows that a number users are having similar issues but it remains to be seen how widespread the problem really is, and whether it relies on the hardware itself or if it's a software problem. Apple is said to be investigating the issue but an official resolution has yet come out from the Cupertino-based company.
