    Hey guys,
    i have a question regarding my 2011 Macbook pro's trackpad. I noticed that the trackpad is a bit "sticky", meaning when I initiate a new movement after a single click the cursor doesn't start moving immediately but instead it takes a few milliseconds before it starts registering my normal cursor control. This can be somewhat annoying sometimes. Is this normal?
    :eek:

    This is more evident playing First Person Shooters (I know you shouldn't play games with a trackpad) when you're trying to burst fire at different directions.

    Anyone noticed this?
    Feel free to ask me for a more detailed explanation if you don't understand my question.
    thanks!

    I assume it's just my machine then.
    Might go to Apple tomorrow to check it out

    If I'm understanding you correctly, all you have to do is turn off One Finger Dragging, and the slight Tap to Click delay will disappear.

    At a guess, it's a hidden optimisation to make double clicking easier.

    I've never noticed it before. I've played Portal 2 in OS X and multiple games in Windows using the trackpad.
