Apple had to face enough embarrassment earlier this week when its unbody MacBook Pros shipped with trackpad related problems.

The trackpad freezes after almost 50 clicks because of some unknown reasons and it starts working again after another 10 failed clicks.

If that fault appears as hardware related, it can be a big problem for the company that may lead to a messy recall and make many without a shiny MacBook. However, Apple claims that the problem will be fixed with a simple software update.

Steve Jobs told a customer via email: “Software will be available soon to fix the problem soon.” This make people think that the problem is Software related.

This email leads to further speculation as Steve Jobs doesn’t like to type email responses with more than three or four words.

It has also been told that the humble MacBook is undergoing the sametrackpad problem and will also be settled with the coming software update.
