    I just got my refurbished Macbook Pro from Apple yesterday and played on it for a couple hours last night and love every bit of it but now my trackpad is acting funny.

    It works perfect half of the time but then it will almost cut out and when you move your finger around on it, it will skip and stutter and is not smooth one bit. When it is having that problem it will will take me almost ten swipes horizontally across the trackpad to get from one side of the screen to another and I have my tracking speed set above half way.

    When i first started typing this it was being faulty but now it is working fine again for the moment but it will go back to acting weird soon enough

    any suggestions?

    Go back to the store / call Apple and ask them to take at it or exchange it. If it is brand new they shouldn't have a problem with that.

    Did you get this sorted out?

    I have a new MBP that's acting the same way sometimes, but only when I'm typing and have both palms in light contact with the front of the MBP. Almost always, if I lift them up, the trackpard starts working fine again.
