    Hello, everyone. My new MacBook Air may have a trackpad issue. I am unable to press it without applying quite a bit of force in the top left corner, but the bottom right corner is almost too easy to press. Is this normal or is my trackpad messed up?:confused:

    Edit: I feel stupid. Mods can delete if needed.

    The bottom of the trackpad is supposed to be easy to press? The top of the trackpad shouldn't move at all.

    Only the lower part of the trackpad is supposed to be pressed.

    Now I feel really stupid...

    Thanks for the confirmation, everyone. I think I just need to stop trying to find defects and enjoy fine computer.

    Sounds like you need to enable your "tap to click" in your trackpad preferences.

    Yeah, I did that, but I didn't really like that. Too many accidental clicks. I just upped my sensitivity and now I don't need to approach the top of the trackpad. Problem solved :)
