    The trackpad on my MBA 13" i7 is bothering me. I've made screencasts [1] to *try* and demonstrate how frustrating it gets.

    Slow movements version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FM71ra7avlY
    Fast movements: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLkmqqQpGjw

    [1] In the videos I move the cursor, then tap -- all the time repeating this pattern. If the cursor is still, I'm just tapping, waiting for a response, then moving on.

    Do you have issues with the trackpad?

    Do any speed adjustments in Trackpad settings help?

    Thanks for this link!! I am elated to have found the way to enable 'tap to drag'. That three finger dragging was drivin' me nuts!!
