For many of us, the number one complaint concerning the Google Chrome OS Cr-48 notebook computer, has been the trackpad. I know that when I first received by Google notebook back in December, the first thing I did was attach a USB mouse to it. The trackpad, in my opinion, was horrible and just didn’t function properly. Though some testers stated it worked OK for them, many of us found the behavior of the trackpad unusable and frustrating.

Like with any new product or hardware, I didn’t give it much thought. I used my USB mouse and the little notebook worked fine. But there was one though going through my mind. We are travelling next month via some of the nations busier airports and would like to just take the Cr-48 and forgo the mouse.

So when the folks at Google sent out an update that supposedly fixed the trackpad issues and few other problems, I was optimistic that the problem was solved. Unfortunately it seemed to me to have made matters worse. 🙁

But that is just my experience. If you have a Google Chrome OS Cr-48 notebook computer, did the update help or hinder the use of your trackpad?

Let me know.
