    My trackpad chooses when it wants to work. The multi-touch works fine , but t sometimes takes like 5+ clicks for anything to register. This is in Windows and Mac osx. So as I live in Canada I was wondering how would I get it fixed, I have warranty until April 2010.

    First step would be to reset your SMC. The next step would be to call up Apple/go to an Apple store, and get the part replaced (mail in service).

    No apple stores remotely near me, and would I have to pay shipping there and back to Apple inc?

    Ain't that a bitch....:(

    Call up AppleCare. You don't pay shipping either way as they'll send you a prepaid mailer. In the mean time, using an external mouse should let you use the computer.

    Phoned Apple Canada and they told me to drive down to Williston North Dakota to get it fixed. Thats about 7-0 miles from where I live. Strange.
