If I could make improvements it would be better speakers and a black cover. This test is not very consistent. Return to Other hardware. Gamestar Comparison,Length Unknown, Date: Intel Core Duo T 1. I think the basic problem is that the touchpad isn’t recognised as a touchpad, but as a mouse under the Vista driver and as a Pointing Device under the Synaptics driver I believe it is really an ALPS touchpad but their driver doesn’t help either.

Another nice function, apart from turning off ‘tap’, would be to set an area on the right-hand-side of the touchpad to use for scrolling, which I could do my default on my old Toshiba. It doesn’t excel in any particular area, but it is pretty affordable, so for that it earns our respect.
