Where does my notebook's touchpad fall in this continuum?  At the bottom 
corners of the touch-sensitive area are two "buttons" which click with 
tactile feedback, but yet are still part of the touch-sensitive surface. 
In other words, the bottom corners can actually be deformed/depressed. 
FWIW, I enabled tap-to-click -- did I just answer my own question? -- 
simply because my wife and I both found the mouse to be moving off target 
too often when tried using these "buttons".
