A little off topic but I find the new HP touchpads to be just awful. I have the HP Mini 311 and while I like the form factor, weight and battery life, I absolutely HATE the touchpad.
When typing, even the slightest touch on the pad moves the cursor and you find yourself typing in areas that you did not intend. I think it is the touchpad because I have used Dell (M1710, M1330) and I never had this problem at all.
I still use the Mini for email and basic web but when I have to edit a document or compose a lengthy email, I'll head for the Dell...
I remember hearing somewhere that Synaptics (used in the Dell's) had something in their driver to detect errant fingers on the pad. I don't think Alps software (on the HP) has that.
