This is my third iBook 14" machine that I've owned in four months. This is the newest -- 1.42ghz machine. The first one I had was a new 1.33 14". The trackpad was wonderful on it. No problems and I use it alot when I work -- no external mouse or keyboard here, my hand-to-keyboard system is down. WHen I got the pristine 1.2 machine, I noticed right away a hollow sound and a more difficult time pressing down on the clickpad -- much different mechanics than the 1.33. So I took it in to the Mac Tech who agreed with me and we put a new Applecare'd topcase on it which allowed me to throw a new hd and superdrive in it while the book was open. So now on my 1.42, the clickpad works but I've noticed that sometimes I press and press and press and it won't open a file or, for specific example, my firewired hard drive that contained all former files from previous computer. (Sold both the 1.2 and 1.33 machines last week, also sold my beloved 1ghz Ti so I feel I'm in the mac business lately). I literally have to go to the menu to "open file" to get some things to open. Is this another clickpad/trackpad problem? Part of me hopes it is so that I can dump a faster hd into this machine while Apple isn't looking. (I wouldn't call them on a failed drive in that case, of course, because my hard drive ALREADY has a 3 year warranty.) Anyway, anyone else have this screwy trackpad problem? I guess if it keeps happening, I've answered my own question but want to know if it might have to do with the scrolling trackpad feature on these machines or something?
