One thing I forgot to mention in my review of the Dell D600 laptop. I really wish it had a Synaptics touch pad and track point as opposed to Alps. Synaptics really makes a better product and their drivers are much better as well.
I don't know why Dell switched from Synaptics to Alps in most of their laptops a few years ago, but I really wish they'd switch back.
I really miss the palm check option that the Synaptics pads have where it won't register a touch unless it's by a single finger.
Plus I think that they Synaptics pads are just so much smoother.
