Default Eraser head vs Touch pad

Does anyone know where I can get an eraserhead style mouse built into my acer laptop? I hate touchpads...loathe them, and walking around with a mouse is just too much of a pain.

It's built in to the keyboard. If it didn't come with it odds are against there being one for it. Contact Acer for details.

That's the OP's schmuck name for the little trackpoint in the middle of a laptop keyboard. Think IBM Thinkpad.

Pointing sticks are featured on most business notebooks. Much more comfortable to use than regular trackpads.

I only remember seeing the eraserheads on Lenevo laptops. I'm sure you can still find one around.
