i'm wondering. i've been to some stores that carry apple products and tried several iBooks and Powerbooks. althou i love them very much, there's always one thing i hate about them. their trackpads are incredibly unresponsive, slow, jumpy, etc etc.. to describe my experience, which are fairly similar in each encounter: the trackpads are very annoying, it takes more pressure to move the cursor than many other touchpads i've used, and if i put just slightly more, it jumps away so far that i'll ahve to drag it back - which is not easy. is it a common occurence in apple touchpads? is that why i always hear about people despising the trackpads so much in mac forums? i thought this is very odd, and maybe it's just because of excessive use - it is in a store after all. But, i've tried a 12" PB which still looks very pristine, and it has the same condition, okay, maybe it just looks pristine, but been played with too many times. next time was a 17" PB. i doubt the unit has been played excessively, since the store is in Montreal and canada always get new products later than the states. Also, the store is very secluded, if i wasn't looking for the exact address, i would've passed the store like it wasn't there. the entrance was hidden and once inside, i had to go up three floors and down a corridor to reach the not so big store. so i doubt that many people ever come up there. but same experience with the trackpad. what gives?? please tell me there's something you can adjust, or maybe they're just defective or been exposed to too much use. (althou i doubt it) otherwise, i'll have to say that apple, you need to fix your trackpads. comments? expeiences? thx.
