    Are anyones mouse buttons like letterboxes? My buttons work fine, but if i press gently on the inside edge of the button (particularly the right one) it folds down like its only supported at one side, kind of like a letterbox or a hinge.

    Its no big deal really, it's just been bugging me.

    I was testing mouse buttons in EEE PC - they are much more horrible... And for me it is the reason to build Touch screen into AA1... :)

    I find the buttons are very sturdy...especially compared to the eeepc. I went to open one of them and i tore the whole mouse button off! haha. Those things are expensive, but not well built.

    on an aside, I don't get why everyone's complaining about the mouse button placement because you don't ever need to use the buttons...except for right click occasionally. you can get by entirely without using the left click button, double taps on the track pad do it all! I actually like the right click placement, I use the trackpad with my left hand and it makes for very easy right clicks.

    Agreed. It's one of the things I preferred, and I'm very pleased with mine.

    Im guessing your using windows xp. You should have a icon by the clock, if you double click it that opens the mouse settings. change the double click speed on the first tap till the test works for you.

    Also check sensitivity, it might be set too "heavy" and not picking up your taps.

    Quick track pad tutorial:

    1 tap, lifting afterward = single left click
    2 taps, lifting up after the second = double left click
    2 taps, holding to the pad after the second = left click drag. Use wherever you would use a left click drag: like moving files or windows around. I've found most people don't know about this, but it makes a huge impact to usability.

    then of course we all know about scrolling:
    drag on the very right edge of the pad activates vertical scrolling
    drag on the very bottom edge of the pad activates horizontal scrolling

    Same thing here, didn't notice it till I read your post since I've been using a USB mouse. The right one, not so much with the left one.

    My right mouse button does the same thing. It goes in a lot more than the left one, and from the look of it, it does that for a lot of people. I'm not sure if they're just built that way.
