    Hey guys I was wondering if anyone with a i7 macbook pro could test to see if the very very bottem of your trackpad responds to anything. Right now I can't get it to register a single thing if my finger is at the very very bottem and sliding horizontally along. The strange thing is it works just fine in all other parts. I noticed it because as I use the pad I would get up to that point and think hey why is my cursor not moving anymore. Can anyone confirm this is how it is supposed to be or is my trackpad a lemon.:confused:

    This happens on my non-i7 MBP. If you try and start moving the cursor from the bottom of the trackpad nothing happens, but if you move your finger to the bottom of the trackpad it keeps behaving as normal. Strange.

    It's probably difficult to start moving the cursor from the edges of the trackpad because Apple is trying to limit the accidental input.

    That's just my guess.
