    I still have yet to try Ubuntu, but I'll get back to you on that; I'm not big into repairing hardware, but may I ask -- can a defective touchpad be replaced? And if so, for how much do you think?

    Yes it can.
    The part itself is not expensive. The problem comes in getting the part. You may be able to get one from the manufacturer, but there will be a big mark-up on it even if you could.
    If you can find out the make and model number then you can usually find a replacement from the supplier - usually in China. If so the international shipping will far exceed the cost of the part.
    The touchpad from the supplier will be $12-15 US dollars, the shipping can be $40-60 US dollars.

    Replacing a touchpad on most laptops requires complete disassembly of the unit. It will require advanced experience. This is a job that is best done by a PC repair shop if you have not broken down and rebuilt a laptop before.
