I wish some EE and ME would design a mouse-pad with a slight
tilt to steer the mouse; I think that would be a great improvment
on the current scratch mousepad. Similarly with Thinkpad's tiny
joystick. I've tried my wife's Dell l'top....
Agree that the Thinkpad's screen res is drawback; the 1920x1200
is a ++major.
