    No it's not. Mine is solid.

    I felt that some store units were a little loose though. If you're not comfortable with it you should definitely swap the machine out.

    Mine is also a bit loose. You can tap it and it will make a sound of the button wiggling a bit.

    Mine is solid but it does press with a solid click (since it's also the power button).

    The first model which I returned to Apple had a loose Touch ID. If you lightly put your finger on it you could move the actual button. The second model I got was solid, no problems.

    Mines not loose, but when you touch it, it wobbles. So moving or shaking he mac makes no noise. It's a button, expect movement, of not now....in time from use

    Is recommend checking if the unit has a good screen and does not suffer from GPU issues

    Mine does the same, seems like some are a tad looser than others. I have played around with a few other ones and some feel firm and others feel a tad loose. I figure it'a a button so it may be an easy fix later if there are any problems.
