On my trackpad, it's difficult to click down at the very top, and a bit easier toward the bottom. What's the point of this?

Does anyone else think that you need to press a little to hard to get a click? (Unless you click at the very bottom.)

Apple has created a very complex, exemplary trackpad.

It has several fulcrums designed to be invoked depending on the command that's issued.

When performing a simple single click, the pivot point is near the top horizontal edge.

Therefore it is easier, and rewards one with a bit more travel when using the bottom horizontal edge as a point of finger contact when commanding a click.
