    yesterday i received my new air and my question is: should the trackpad be everywhere flush to the aluminum casing? my trackpad is on the lower, clickable area not flush to the chassis. the trackpad sits deeper. how about yours? responses will be very appreciated.

    The trackpad is not supposed to be flush to the aluminum. It's suppose to lay slightly lower. It's very slight, but if you try running your finger over the aluminum, then the touchpad, you can feel a slight "dip." The depth of the trackpad is not very obvious or blatant, but it's there and should be lower and not sit flush with the palmrest.

    thank you very much for your fast answer! i'm only used to the old white macbook with the additional mouse button which was elevated. since my thumb searches for the elevated button i accidentally try to press the aluminum below the trackpad :D. it looks like i have to adjust myself a bit :).
