hate the touchpad
Same, I wish all laptops came with the nipple mouse instead of the touchpad, I can't stand them even if they are probably faster. I remember playing Rollercoaster Tycoon with a touchpad on my cousin's fiance's laptop like 12 years ago and my fingers got stuck straight and stiff from not bending them enough.
My old boss the tech coordinator from high school gave me one of the spare ThinkPad X61 Tablets a few days ago that was donated to the school from a local corporation that shut down. I am quickly re-realizing just how hard it is to get the hang of a ThinkPad keyboard, especially one that was made to fit under a 12 inch screen with all the smaller keys like enter and especially the single-key sized backspace.
Other than that this laptop is awesome though: 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB of RAM, upgraded the 80GB 5400 HDD to a 60GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD that somebody gave to me, integrated microphone, SD card reader and fingerprint recognition, and the touchscreen pen works flawlessly with Windows 7 x64 that I put on it. Also has an Intel X3100 graphics chip built into the 965 Express that does hardware T&L and DirectX 10 if I could just find the right custom drivers that re-enable the hardware T&L, supposedly Intel ran into some trouble when they tried enabling it and took it out of their drivers again. It already plays Half-Life 2 at low-medium settings at 1400x1050 though.
