    For you MBP owners with sweaty hands, do you find the trackpad to get too sticky?

    Are there any solutions such as layover films/sprays I can do to lower the coefficient of friction?

    Maybe I should try some teflon spray--or Pam. hehehe.

    Have you considered latex gloves? :D No, on the trackpad there is no issue. It is mainly on the keyboard keys.

    I guess I always sorta wipe my hands off before using my notebook (I know whose computer I'm not buying in the Marketplace) A towel would surely solve this problem.

    Hey guys, I have this same problem. I find that I have to go wash my hands with soap every half hour or so, and it's getting to be a real inconvenience.

    Anyone found any lasting solutions to this ?

    An external mouse would not work very well for me, because, in my current living situation, the MBP is on my lap almost the whole time. I'm rarely sitting at a desk/table.

    Thanks !

    Keep the trackpad clean and dust your hands with cornstarch. Clap your hands together to get the excess cornstarch off; it don't take much.

    You might want to see if applying an unscented antiperspirant to your hands and/or keeping a small package of tissues handy to dry your hands might be practical solutions. If not, there are prescription medications for the problem you may wish to discuss with your physician.
