this was FUCKING COMPLICATED you have to press down a button and also move your finger and argh...i LOVED drawing on laptops with this nipple on the keyboard. overall i really miss them- anybody remembers them?
and yeh sure ive got a mouse. it was pretty expensive. one of those wireless microsoft mice- i find it to be nicer than wireless logitch mice which are even more expensive. anyways its god damn hot here in germany so i cant use the computer in my room unless i enjoy a slow and painful death. so yeh im sitting in an easy chair in the living room with this laptop on my knees.
I hear ya, I hate touchpads. I usually end up bashing some trackball attachment to the right side, a nice sturdy dual expansion "protector" (The little placeholders to protect the slots) makes a perfect base for such a thing. You do lose the funtionality of your slots, but nearly everything is USB now anyway.
