Metallic taste when using track pad
When I was swiping my fingers across the track pad i could taste a metallic substance from the computer this my second macbook pro and the first one had the same results.
Has anyone else had this problem?
I don't think it's normal to experience tasting flavors from simply touching an object.
That said, if you are touching an aluminum case and you lick your fingers afterwards, it's possible that you could be licking up some aluminum dust.
Either way, I wouldn't recommend licking your fingers or your laptop.
I would try adding a colloidal minerals supplement in the liquid form to your diet to see if this resolves any mineral deficiencies you may have. Many of the minerals are metals. In chemistry the Theory of Equallibrium tells us that all touching matter exchanges atoms. I would also try washing your hands prior to touching the track pad. Colloidal/Ionized minerals are in the form of salts. Your sweat has salt in it.
Look to see if touching other items brings this sensation. That may help you narrow down the cause of it.
sometimes, when i move myfingers over the metal part of my laptop, both the unibody and the one before, i feel some ‘stick-slip’. it is gone when i unplug the power. clearly, some voltage comes through.
