    Hey guys, I just got my MBP yesterday and am experiencing a lot of friction on the trackpad. Is anyone else experiencing this and if so, what are some ways to remedy this issue. Thanks in advance! :)

    Try being lighter on it, but within a few days it will be fine and you will start thinking other trackpads feel weird :p

    Try adjusting the pointer speed in system preferences and see if that helps out. It won't solve the friction issue, but it might make the issue a bit better.

    Your fingers on glass will undoubtedly have friction.

    I use a trackpad cover for this purpose. The one I use is in the set with the Moshi PalmGuard.

    Does the trackpad cover significantly reduce the friction on your fingertips? I'm considering buying one.

    Trackpad skin is smooth plastic, so yes it's quite nice.

    It should be silky smooth. I have an Early 2009 17", and I find it the best trackpad I've ever used.

    If you have any, try a bit of Klear-screen on it (make sure to only put it on the cloth, not directly on he trackpad).
