Hi Olivier,

I've recently brought a Novatech NSPIRE 17' that comes with the latest
4th gen Intel i7 and 16GB RAM etc. 

It works great apart from the trackpad - I think this could be a common
issue for the latest hardware.  I'd suggest trying out some systems with
a Live OS USB key to make sure everything works :)

Good luck,

Kind Regards, Nigel.
