When I first heard about the new Invisible touchpad on the Samsung R Series Notebooks, coming with new Intel Core processors, I was a bit put off.

At CES 2010 I stopped in the Samsung booth to try it out myself on the Samsung R580 notebook and, much to my surprise, it worked out great. I recorded a little demo showing you how it looks – hint it isn’t invisible but it is flat as can be.
Here is a look at the top of the device which features a new finish that looks pretty nice; even if it attracts fingerprints.
