well, im quite exited, my new MBP arrived today, unfortunatly i had to get to school so i didnt have more than 30 min to play with it. i noticed that if you tap the toughpad it dosent select, you have to actually push the button at the bottom. is there an option to set it to select on a tap? thanks

Yeah, I got pretty used to that feature from my clunky Dell. Took me awhile to figure out how to set it up.

Mine is set to touch-select, my wife's isn't. So whenever I use her computer I tap the pad (especially since she doesn't even bother with a mouse) and sit there with a dumb look until I realize that hers doesn't do that.
