    So, have a MacBook unknown late 2008, cracked the trackpad from "excessive use" dragging and dropping/copy/pasting stuff....replaced under AppleCare, no issues....gave it to my wife once repaired......bought a new 15" i7, cracked the trackpad same manner....barely putting pressure....clean breaks....getting replaced under warranty now, but frustrating....typically use mouse and more conscious about pressure but still cracking...what are the do's and do nots?

    Where is the cracking at?
    top or bottom?
    If top, click more on the bottom as I have had no problem with two laptops.

    Tap to click? :D. I prefer that because sometimes the click is mad loud, and it can be quite embarrassing to be clicking around when studying @ the library.

    First crack right in the middle, so I changed my clicking habits, I started clicking in the corner....bottom right corner was the second break.....I only click to really drag and drop....
