    This is my third replacement for various issues. I've just taken it out of the box and the trackpad feels sluggish? It just doesn't feel like the others I've had. Has anyone else had this experience? I'm going to take it to the genius bar.

    Have you fiddled with the settings in preferences?, I know by default they tend to be on the slowest settings.
    OSX updates, reboot, hammer?

    All Mac trackpads feel sluggish upon first setup of a new Mac, or even a new user account, because the default trackpad speed is too slow.

    You can have a Genius have a look. If it is really that far off from your other two that you had it may be worth a second opinion...

    You could also try using BetterTouchTool to increase the tracking speed beyond what System Preferences is limited to.
