MacBook Pro 2017 – Keyboard & Trackpad issues

I have started using a Apple MacBook Pro 2017 (15 inch) around two weeks back.

I have been little unproductive since then because of keyboard and trackpad issues:

  • Keyboard isn’t as good as we have one in MacBook Pros from 2011. I don’t feel the feedback from keys, and my typing accuracy has been very poor for some reason.
  • Trackpad doesn’t allow me to use single finger (tap + tap pressed) dragging of file without drag-lock. The dragging stops the moment I press any key on keyboard, e.g. to switch window where I want to drop the file.

I don’t want to use dragging with drag-lock or using three fingers. I don’t want to reconfigure all other things to use four finger gestures.

Unlearning something is painful and frustrating. I am happy to learn new things if I think those are better than old ones. I don’t think that’s the case here.

I will update this post if I find some other issues.
