The Asus Eee PC is a netbook-style, small laptop computer. It features a touchpad located in front of the keyboard. This touchpad can be disabled. You may find this advantageous if you're using an external mouse instead of the touchpad and wish to avoid accidental input to the computer when you're using the keyboard.
