    Cool concept, but dear god what a hideous machine!

    Yeah that's an interesting idea. I actually kinda like the idea, but that looks like a pretty awkward implementation of it.

    Oh yeah. Great concept. Just needs a little work!

    As far as I can tell, it's just the start of it. like we had all said, it would be great if Apple could integrate this into the current trackpad with some type of gesture for activation of the nav. pad.

    Either way, great idea. Just not quite there yet.

    What would be super cool is a "pad" that takes up the entire width of the keyboard, but remain the depth as the current pad. Then divide it into 3 sections, with the outer two being touchscreen displays. You could have the middle remain as a trackpad, and the outer two display different functionality.

    The only problem is, why does Fujitsu get to be the beginner of that idea?

    Boo...

    I think I remember some older Toshibas a few years ago with muti-function touchpads... not really the same thing, and it wasn't as sophisticated as the one shown here, but I'm pretty sure they could run a calculator and some other simple things on a screen that covered the touchpad.

    Wow. See, I think I'd be extremely happy if I could just have Dashboard widgets appear in the pad. I use the calculator, weather, calendar and stickies all the time!

    Hmm...

    I'd like to see something like that but stretched across the whole width of the laptop. Great place to put the dock. Just put your icons there and click on the apps you want to run. I use dock hiding as I don't like the dock to take away screen space.

    It makes sense if it was the system's trackpad, and if it provided extra functions that could be displayed as soft keys. I don't think it is really that neat, or useful to have a small touchscreen just to have it.
