Hey everyone.

I recently bought a black macbook. The trackpad on it has been driving me crazy. If I set two fingers down on the pad, the mouse will start moving around rapidly. I've turned on/off "ignore accidental stuff" and still get the same results. The scrolling is very sensitive as well and isn't very consistent.

I have the sensitivity of the scroll down pretty far. But sometimes it will skip down a page and sometimes it will barely move. This didn't seem to be an issue on my g/f year old macbook. I don't know if it's just the trackpad on the black macbook or if it's a software bug.

Anyone experience this issue? I'm currently running Leopard 10.5.4 and I am up to date on all the latest software. Any ideas?
