Default The problem with laptops

If there's one thing I cannot stand about laptops, is the fact that sometimes when you use the pad thingy, it automatically clicks on something. Let's just be glad that I didn't type an e-mail for someone only to hover over the send button and not click on it. Yes, I am aware that this probably only happens to Windows computers and didn't ever really have any experience with Mac computers, but nontheless it is annoying. I wonder if it's a flaw that Gateway, Samsung, etc. haven't worked upon, but this is something to be considered.

I've never had a massive problem with that, and usually it's my fault for hitting the pad with my finger instead of gliding it.

Happens now and again, but not frequently.
