I sympathize with your desire for a trackpoint (instead of a touchpad),
and this is one reason I keep getting ThinkPads for my laptops.
Unfortunately, I don't know of any "netbooks" that come with trackpoints.
I hope you get an answer on this list so I'll get one as well (with the
obvious preference for FreeBSD, or at least *some* BSD Unix,

Aloha Gary,

The HP Mini 1000 has a pad and it is not good. If I accidentally brush it with a finger it acts as a click same as the mouse buttons do. I think this is a terrible feature. ( No way to kill it either I checked. )I thought it was because I have large hands, but Julie has trouble too so she brought out a USB wireless logitech mouse from her stash of stuff and it works fine.

Good Luck...
