Who'd have thought?
An official Apple forum has become a sounding board for numerous complaints that the MacBook’s new multi-touch glass-covered trackpad isn't behaving itself. MacBook_TrackPad Apple's MacBook trackpad: freezing after 50 clicks? Owners of shiny new metal MacBooks grumble that the trackpad freezes after roughly 50 clicks and …
I'm waiting. I really want to upgrade my Macbook to one of those shiny new Macbook Pros, but Apple are just terrible with the first batches, or even first generations. I have a first-gen Macbook... I've had a mainboard, hard disk, trackpad and keyboard replaced since I got it.
But they're still such damn good laptops. Everyone just needs to learn to be patient- if their sales went down you can bet Apple would start paying more attention.
Hesus Christ!, as they say don't in 'ol Mexico! This is NOTHING NEW with Mac portable GARBAGE!!
I have a last of the G4 1.2g 12" iBooks, and guess what ...... it (and all of them made) CAME WITH ANOTHER Trackpad FLAW! You can not set the cursor speed above half or it goes bezzerk! Oh, and the Firewire Port decided to CROAK for no fu@king reason 2 months after Apple doesn'tCARE expired.
Then there's my $2700 G4 PowerBook that became a DOOR STOP at age 28 months with the now FAMED LCD cable flaw ($900 to fix and no garrantees it wouldn't happen again). Meanwhile, my year 2000 manufactured HP OmniBook PIII 1.2g still runs like new. I will never buy anything Apple ever again, but I did just buy another HP, 15.4" Pavillion notebook and love it.
MacBooks and MacBook Pros have LONG history of Bugs, Flaws and Manufacturing Poor Quality, just as ALL their predicessors do as well - the PROOF is all over the Internet on news reports and blogs. Remember the infamous G3 iBook that the US Govnmt forced Apple to extend the warranty to 3 years because of an over 23% failure rate!
Get a clue MacTards, Apple sells shit and they couldn't care less if you are effected.
So lets see if the Reg Tards will print this too, or censor it.
So next time someone buys an expensive Armani or IDon'tKnowWhat suit, they should buy a tailor along with it?
The extended warranty is optional in order to give you peace of mind should anything happen after the compulsory manufacturer's warranty. If a high percentage of users face the same problem even if that falls outside manufacturer's warranty, then you should be pointing the finger at the manufacturer really, shouldn't you!! Or maybe you are one of those who think that you need extended warranty with everything you buy,which negates the whole value for money concept unless for certain circumstances!
I think u need a reality check.
It's fairly clear there is a real issue which Apple will have to fix, but it's overlaid on user habits of leaving extra digits (especially thumb) lightly resting on the trackpad, adding one more finger to every gesture, often changing their meaning.
I have no problems with mine, apart from when I go back to an older trackpad and have to unlearn my new multitouch, buttonless habits.
