    I like how it has more surface area but I still can't get used to it, even after using my mom's uMB every once in a while.

    Been using an early 2008 MBP for quite some time.

    I guess just the lack of the click button, and the surface feels kinda weird but glides well

    I have owned over 12 laptops and I can say the trackpad on the new macbook pro is by far the best. Yes you get use to it.

    Yep. I love the gestures, but personally I use tap-to-click.

    I have come to love this puppy.

    The only OTHER gesture I have used aside from the two finger stuff, is the three finger hyper-scrolling. That's a sweet feature. Don't care for the four finger ones.

    absolutely love it! gestures all the way. I use 3-finger page navigation and 4 finger expose all the time!

    New Trackpad+tap to click+MultiClutch for 3 finger commands in Firefox= pure awesomeness.

    I love it. The biggest issue is when I have to use somebody else's Windows laptop and it has the tiny, high friction trackpad with no multi-touch :(

    I wish there was a skinny button on the bottom. I run reason loops for live music and i cant risk an accidental click by the tap feature.

    I hate using other laptops now. I would say that you get more that "used " to it i'd say that it is impossible to get "used" to anything else after you use it.

    I hate it. While laying in bed the bottom of the trackpad rests against my body which makes it really difficult to use.

    I wish it was designed with a skinny button at the bottom like the MacBook Air.
