    I just got my 13" MBA from Amazon today and noticed that the trackpad felt kind of loose out of the box. What I mean is with any sort of pressure it sounds like it is clicking, almost as if its not glued down all the way. After using it for a few hours, it seems now to not be as bad / loud. Was curious if this ever happened to anyone else?

    I would rather not have to return it ect ect.

    Same problem!

    Hey - mine is doing the exact same thing. I am wondering if it is just something about the new machine. I'm going to try to get down to the Apple store later this week and try out some of the floor models to see if they are acting up.

    Let me know if you've heard anything or figure out anything about it!

    The bottom half of the trackpad "floats" on its button and the new ones are a tad softer than older ones. However, I have not had or heard any of my customers have issues.

    There is a screw that adjusts the sensitivity of the click. Have a genius adjust it for you. Real quick fix...
