    Try sitting higher or change your wrist position?

    I use one of these:

    Well, yeah the OP is using the 11' but there's nothing wrong with that..right? or shall we rant about a measly additional 3 hour battery life that you may have in your 13' ? Or shall we talk about that SD-card reader that you can so produly flaunt in that Junk sized 13' ?

    Huh, the OP needs a solution, not a rant....!

    Is it possible your laptop position is too high?

    Am guessing this is an ailment for people with large hands?

    Mine comfortably sit on the palm rest as designed.

    Yep, if your wrists are consistently resting on anything, your positioning is all wrong.

    On my MBPR and the preceding 2007 MBP, resting wrists would result in erratic trackpad behavior.
