    I want the trackpad on my 8900 i am willing to pay at least 75$ for this mod there are probably people willing to pay more.
    is anyone working on this?

    I do not know this 100% for sure but I think there is hardware you will need for this to work that does not exist on the 8900.

    I would just suggest buying an 8520 instead.

    The motherboard wasn't made for the pad that I know of for one. It isn't a matter of changing looks, but hardcoding as well. Hence why you can't use just any processor, or any 3D card on your PC.

    As per "es_bih"'s comment above... Its NOT just a hardware mod. The Software would also have be modified to respond to a trackpad.

    Hence, yes you are wishing for something you'll never have/get.

    Sorry. You'll just have to deal with what you've got. You can get different colors of keyboards but the style of keys is what you're stuck with.
