Just got my new Sager 8170 and tried to type something on it. I put my index fingers on the standard keys F and J and my right palm rested on the edge of the touch pad moving the cursor up and down. I made sure I have my hands in the right position and realized that the right edge of the touch pad goes way to the right comparing with other laptops. I have my work HP EliteBook and Dell inspiron on my desk and see that their touch pads right edge is on the level of J key on the keyboard. The Sager right touch pad edge is almost 2 keys to the right from the J key. Since I installed Linux Fedora 16 on it I have an option to disable the touch pad completely and use USB external mouse - this is how I use it now.
Anyone has this issue? Is my laptop unusual comparing with other Sagers?
