I've noticed recently that a large number of PC laptops ship with their trackpads aligned off the centre of the unit, instead directly under the spacebar. This is taken to its most extreme in the Dell Studio 17-inch laptop, which has a numeric keypad on the right of the main keyboard, so the whole keyboard is off centre, and even the far right of the trackpad is still to the left of the centre of the whole unit.
Does anyone have an off-centre trackpad? Does it tick you off, or is it actually quite usable? I did try and Google up some sort of explanation of why this trend has come about, but found little outside of speculation.
