I keep trying to use other laptop touchpads the way I use my Cr-48's touchpad when repairing laptops here at the office. I found myself doing the same thing with my mother's touchpad the other day. I think this thing is growing on me, now that I have the sensitivity and other settings configured just right.
I'm not switching from my Trackpoint anytime soon - I still miss it for my day to day usage on occasion. But, for what it's worth, the touchpad on this thing is beginning to agree with me.
