Tip on adjusting trackpad clicking pressure on unibody macbooks

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Hey everyone,

I just bought a new MBP, and while it is a wonderfull machine, i found the glass trackpad to be a bit heavy to click, and noisy too. It's not easy to drag if you have to keep applying this kind of pressure while still moving around.

So i set of to find a way to solve this problem, and it wasn't hard

you can adjust the pressure by means of the big triwing screw on the trackpad, below the battery. You don't really need a triwing screwdriver, i did it with a philips head.

Setting the right pressure is very sensitive! A couple degrees of rotation can make the difference, you'll have to experiment with this to see what suits your taste.

Good luck!
