@amic but, those are actually really nice and easy to use??? sure they work differently from a trackpad but I prefer them over one (not over a mouse though)

@Felthry yeah, I really don't understand the "it's old, ugly, and outdated1!!!" argument. If you don't want to use it, don't use it.

@amic It's not like they really have any substantive argument against anything here, so I think the tone is the most obnoxious part
@amic I'm more accurate and faster with it than I ever was w/ any touchpad, and all that "great for creatives" shit just sounds like an ad
@amic I agree that they can be hard to use, but in my experience, it isn't hard to avoid if you don't want to use it. I wish more laptop & keyboard brands had it, even though I would rarely use it. (Old, ugly, outdated is a silly position to take.)

@lnxw48a1 I will admit that I have tiny hands, but I have never had issues with hitting it by accident while typing. The nub can also be removed, and while it does look a bit ugly having it missing it means you can't hit it by accident.

@amic I'm sure it is possible to make it the same color as the keys if looks are the issue.
@lnxw48a1 @amic the Dell I have at work has a track point that blends in quite well
