    Hey everyone,

    I just bought a new MBP, and while it is a wonderfull machine, i found the glass trackpad to be a bit heavy to click, and noisy too. It's not easy to drag if you have to keep applying this kind of pressure while still moving around.
    So i set of to find a way to solve this problem, and it wasn't hard :)

    you can adjust the pressure by means of the big triwing screw on the trackpad, below the battery. You don't really need a triwing screwdriver, i did it with a philips head.
    Setting the right pressure is very sensitive! A couple degrees of rotation can make the difference, you'll have to experiment with this to see what suits your taste.
    Good luck! :D
