Summary: This laptop is absolutely incredible. It is lightning fast. Great screen. Great keyboard. Solid feel to it. Nice look. Incredible value for the price. Except for one trajic flaw: the touchpad is awful. For reasons that are beyond me, Asus created it using one of the stickiest substances known to man. My finger cannot glide across this surface. It isn't smooth - it has a dimpled texture to it, almost like a golf ball. That may or may not be the problem.
