Wish I could help... but the touchpad works fine on my $95 used Lenovo Thinkpad R61, like everything else...
Definitely the latest Linux kernel will be the medicine you want for those newer multi-hundred-dollar laptops.
The next version of *buntu is always right around the corner, along with Linux Mint. Until then I'd suggest plugging in a mouse.
I use a mouse with my laptop even though the touchpad works, because I'm not a big fan of touchpad. Just takes too long to get things done with a touchpad.
With nice optical three-button mice at $15 and less, it is really a no-brainer. I found a really good one, a Zalman mouse, for $5, shipped, (with rebate) on NewEgg.
My desktop runs 64-bit Kubuntu 13.04, my htpc runs 64-bit Linux Mint Nadia Xfce, my answering machine runs 64-bit windows 7, and my laptop runs 64-bit Linux Mint Nadia KDE. Each seems suited to its purpose.
