Anyone seen this?
Samsung may be releasing a variant of the NC10 with a larger touchpad….December 16, 2008 at 6:52 pm #175896SerendipMember
After translating (HA!) the page, I think those who were guessing they are prototype photos are right, or maybe it’s that I’m hoping they are right!December 16, 2008 at 7:02 pm #175907saureyMember
That sucks for the rest of us. I want a bigger pad. But I don’t like those tiny buttons on the new one. They just needed to add like 1 cm in height on the regularone. Fill in the space between pad and spacebar.December 16, 2008 at 9:51 pm #175904soutthpawMember
Well in the mean time you can disable the horizontal and vertical scroll functions and add the “twofingerscroll” application.. which gives you in essence a bigger touch padDecember 16, 2008 at 10:14 pm #175908saureyMember
I think the 2 fingerscroll application is terrible. It puts a tray icon, it’s too fast, and it’s not polished. It’s just not the same. Plus, back to the main topic, the touchpad is way too small for 2 finger. IMODecember 16, 2008 at 11:20 pm #175909ZipMember
if you fiddle around with it long enough it becomes very handy!December 17, 2008 at 12:15 am #175899techguyoneMember
I think its a shame no one followed on from Toshiba & IBM and used tracksticks instead, miles better by far than any of the crap touchpads on any laptopDecember 17, 2008 at 12:15 am #175903navanmanMember

The default settings are way too fast but you can tweak it to any speed, acceleration setting you wish. After tweaking the speed to 2 and acceleration to 1, I have to say its a fantastic program and now can’t live without it.December 17, 2008 at 12:18 am #175910janrifMember
How / where are these settings? I must have missed something? Tx

yeah I adjusted the speed to 1 and acceleration off and it works awesome…
not sure how the different one two and three finger button settings work maybe someone can explain if i should try using thoseDecember 17, 2008 at 6:02 am #175901rtripMember
I prefer the small touchpad with the larger buttons than the larger touchpad with the thin buttons. That was one of the things I hated about my 1000h. First the 1000h buttons make loud clicking noises when depressed (so I couldn’t work from bed) and they were hard to click.December 17, 2008 at 8:06 am #175902snowmanMember
Tracksticks? Are they those horrible joystick/nipple things in the middle of the keyboard?
Each to their own, of course, but I much prefer touchpads to them (and the one on my HP laptop kept falling off until I finally lost it completely)….

I personally think the new/prototype design looks great – I am reasonably happy with the current trackpad and two finger scrolling, but I still find the larger trackpad on my old laptop a joy to use in comparison. Can’t see smaller buttons being a problem, as long as it easy to ‘feel’ for them.
I never got used to the nipple on my work thinkpad – surprised anyone prefers it!!December 17, 2008 at 9:50 am #175900greenisaacMember
I’ve quickly got use to the tiny tracker pad and find it pretty sensitive even when used in art packages though I’ve also invested in a cordless bluetooth mouse.
I haven’t disabled the scroll bar or gesture functions yet although I do occasionally accidentially zoom in on the text so maybe I should practice how the gestures work.
I like the look of the new tracker pad although not too keen on the buttons so on reflection I’m happy with the NC10 pad.December 19, 2008 at 4:19 pm #175911ginnymMember

I’m probably being thick but how do I disable the scroll function please?
Ignore me – I’ve just found the extra settings and turned it off. Now I’m a happy bunny. I just wish there was the right shift key wasn’t so far to the right – it’s the only thing I don’t like about my Sammy so far (now that I’ve turned the scrolling off).
