Is the trackpad surface on a MacBook Air different than on a Pro? I found that the trackpad on my friend's 2012 MacBook Pro is much smoother than that of my 2013 MacBook Air. Is that normal or my has my trackpad gone rough by use?

  • The trackpad surface is the same on both the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. It's the iconic glass on metal design (patent D674382). The trackpad design and hardware has been the same since it's introduction in 2008 with the new MacBooks. enter image description here
