To me the worst thing about a netbook is the fact that I always seem to put my palm on the track pad and move the cursor. That makes me end up tying in places that I don't want to type when I am working. Synaptics has announced some new tech for track pads at Computex that will eliminate that issue.

The new tech is called PC TouchPad-Is and can recognize touch input form up to four fingers at once. The coolest part is that the track pad can tell whether it’s a finger or a palm on the pad. When a palm presses the track pad, it simply doesn’t work.

Synaptics is also showing off new tech for small machines like netbooks that eliminates the buttons for right and left click to give more room for gestures. The track pad itself clicks for the buttons. That sounds cool to me.
