Re: Who Uses a Mouse with their Laptop?
I really prefer touchpads, maybe because I really do like using a laptop in my lap, but my new Asus X202e has such a huge trackpad and such incredibly bad performance at turning off said trackpad when typing that I've set up Ctrl+Space to toggle the trackpad's activity. It's becoming a habit to just whack Ctrl+Space when I want to enter text and again when I'm done typing, so it doesn't actually get in my way very much. I don't use the mouse when typing (I already have the habit of Ctrl+ arrow use for navigation) so it works out for the most part.

I know I shouldn't use tildes for decoration, but they always make me feel at home~
