I didn't know these netbooks are demos - what does that mean? I can't afford a laptop right now since I was laid off. I bought this mini in late 2011 and immediately doubled the memory. I just found a couple of mouses laying around, one's a wireless blueooth. With some research it appears that this netbookj does not have the feature for hooking up bluetooth and I need to down load stuff. From looking at HP support site, I see that the website has downloads for that but I cannot make it happen because HP first makes me run their detector program that gives me a huge list of downloads that I either need or are just suggestive and then I cannot get back to the download they originally said I needed to download for my system on this particular product. It's just all too complicated and frustrating, not for lack of intellect but due to low frustration tolerance on my part and the constant process of finding only partial solutions and confusing interventions due to HP site not working properly, synaptics crap product, etc... In order to do what I need to, I have to piece it all together from a variety of confused souces- goddamnit, I want everything to be clear and in one place! I should say that this is the 1st time I have ever tried to do any more on a computer than handle documents , load pictures and occasionally run maintenance. I never read the manual since all of what I did was limited and obvious. However, just in the last month I have been looking at everything in this computer for hours on end, opening and fiddling in order to know what it can do and what is involved while taking care not to do anything that will make the computer inoperable. Anyways, I should probably read the manual and post for the bluetooth issue separately. I, however do feel confident about my conclusion with the touchpad due to reading tones of threads on this topic that only dead end after a myriad of efforts to solve this. Any comments or suggestions are welcome. Thanks for readng through this as I know it's a bit self involved and off topic.
