    Ok, so on my netbook to click with one finger on the trackpad part you have to raise your finger and then press it for it to click.

    On the uni MB do you do the same thing or can leave your finger on the trackpad and just apply more pressure to click?

    You just press it, without raising the entire pad depresses with pressure

    ...go to a store that has them on display and play with it for a while...it feels strange to press on the whole trackpad, the trackpad feels fairly heavy to push/click compared to a "regular" trackpad...

    keep in mind this is completely different from "tapping." mac notebooks also have tapping, where you lift your finger and then tap, exactly as you describe. however, by default the trackpad is an actual button that you dont need to lift uup on before clicking (as others have said)
