    How easy is it to drag and drop with the new trackpads?

    I don't know if I quite agree with this. It depends how you do drag and drop. I just bought a MB yesterday and this is only my initial impression.

    I find that if you try to select an icon and use the bottom of the trackpad as if it were a button you sometime freeze the mouse because it simulates a two finger gesture. Does that make sense?

    If you select the icon and click at the same time it works pretty well. I had to enable the tap click to make me happy.

    i have not been able to reproduce that with by dragging around an icon. when you press the trackpad down, i don't think you can 2-finger gesture at all, so the two actions should be exclusive
