i came back from the Apple Store today and they opened up my MBP to try and see what was wrong with my trackpad. Usually they can adjust it with retention screws. Given the severity of the issue, my gut told me this would still be expensive no matter what. However, this was not the case here (no pun intended), because he comes back and says that since it's out of warranty the body itself would need to be replaced, and that's a ~$370 part, while labor would be $80ish. This is unfortunate for a computer that I paid over $1000 for, just to get the trackpad working. I wonder if there's a cheaper repair solution. I can use a mouse, but that isn't the point.
