    Just got new MBP 13" yesterday (nice mirror, btw :mad:).

    I've noticed that top part of the touchpad (aproximately 1.5 cm) doesn't "click". So when I press everywhere else - there is noticablee click - how it should be. But not the top part - it doesn't click no matter how I press it.

    Is this correct how it should be or my unit has problem?
    I can't remember if I saw this in the Apple store..

    Umm, you mean "not correct" or "doesn't click"?

    (OK, hopefully I didn't break something while trying to click...)

    Your trackpad is normal. You can also turn on "Tap to Click" or something in the System Preferences. Just find the track pad pref. That will allow you to tap the trackpad instead of forcing you to click to bottom. Only time I have actually click is to drag something.

    Your trackpad is normal, the top half doesn't move when you press it, the bottom half does. This makes it almost impossible to click using the physical button if your finger is near the top of the trackpad. I end up using my thumb on the bottom like I would with a normal trackpad+button setup.

    Thanks everybody.

    Yes, I'll be using tap-to-click, and mostly will use mouse - for me it's more convenient (especially for the drag-drop, move, etc)
