I am sick. I understand the major laptop manufacturers have decided that no one wants the button mouse in the middle of the keyboard any longer. Well they are wrong; I want it. That touch pad thing drives me crazy because my fly-away thumb is always tapping me into la-la-land when I touch-type. Using a mouse means carrying an extra gizmo that runs out of batteries at the worst possible times. The button mouse works for me, and now it’s gone.
