    Let me just say that the new MacBook Pro is great, it is speedy, the design is nice but the trackpad is driving me crazy.
    When I got the MacBook Pro, I found it easy to use but after using it for a while, the trackpad becomes a pain in the ***. The right clicks don't always work especially when I want to copy and paste.
    I liked it better using the two fingers to right click.

    Is anyone else disliking the new glass trackpad?

    You can still use two fingers to right click...

    I never actuate the buttons underneath. I use it the same as the previous trackpads. (single click tap and tap-lock gestures, two-finger tap for right click, etc)

    Same. I like the additional area.

    The mouse click is too loud and sounds 'cheap'. If it gave off a bit more bass at about 1/3 the loudness, I'd be happier.

    I love it - the extra space is great, and it works just like the old trackpad used to. For the first ten minutes after I unboxed the computer (registration screens, etc.), I didn't even notice the missing button - just put my thumb on the bottom and clicked as usual.

    It is a little loud, but I recall my old MBP was that way at first and quieted down a bit.

    ?!?! It's not a loudspeaker! it's just a noise - you can't add "bass" to a clicking object :rolleyes:
