Just bought this as a general purpose computer for my daughter, for her small room at university. It's replacing an old eeebox which was getting way to slow. This is very fast with good graphics. I'm probably going to give up building my own huge tower machines one day.
It has this useless touch pad. If you just want to use it, then power it up without a keyboard and mouse. Poor me started it with a keyboard and mouse, and it puts in the exact same mouse and keyboard drivers. You can't tell the difference! So I can't ever try out this keyboard unless I kill the device drivers for the keyboard and mouse. This is like being on the cartoon side of the branch you're cutting.
