Hey guys. I'm going to be receiving a new laptop pc in a couple of days, which will be a HP Pavilion dv7-4087cl. Now, it is indeed a computer that I will be very happy with, especially after reading most of the reviews. However, I noticed a trend within most of the reviews. I heard that the touchpad is okay and manageable by some, yet being plain awful from others. Now, I know it is a cheap imitation of the touchpads on recent Apple Macbooks, but I'm sure that HP's pad cannot be as bad as several people claim.

So, I just wanted to add this post in hopes of understanding how to properly and effectively operate the HP with its touchpad once it comes. By learning now, I would be preventing frustrations and headaches later. Also, I'd like others' opinions about the HP DV7 touchpad from those with experience of using one. Here's a short list of what I want to know:

The proper way to use this type of touchpad in terms of finger placement and ergonomics (clicking, scrolling, etc.)

How to effectively use its multigesture functions (even though I heard they are mostly unresponsive).

Turning off the multigesture functions

Understanding how to prevent cursor from unintentionally jumping from one part of a page to another (ex: jumping from one line to another while trying to type a paper; so annoying from old laptop).
