    OK I made some research and found this. For the middle click, there are few solutions:
    1. An awesome AutoHotkey script that simulates a middle click (it just sits harmlessly in the taskbar): Helpful Tip: Middle-Click on a Touchpad Laptop Mouse
    2. Assign the left button to middle click in synaptic, and use the tap feature to left click.
    3. Get the instaClick Firefox add-on which assigns the middle click in Firefox to some mouse button you define.
    4. Download the synaptic driver from Dell. I'm not sure if that would work at all, I haven't tried, but Dell's Synaptic drivers do offer middle clicks through Right click + Left click together.

    Unfortunately the hp Synaptic driver doesn't even offer assigning a "tap zone" to a middle click. The touchpad is also a little jumpy too. But I'm gonna give it a chance, play around with the settings, and see if I get accustomed to it.

    On a side note, why does the laptop get warm at the left front corner underneath your left palm? Is that where the graphics card is located or something?

    Yes I think thats where it is located..If you have the i5 you can try the HD graphics, I think it makes the palm rest cooler..

    And on a side-note, I'm pretty sure this long thread has some talk about some script on google which helped with the middle mouse..Look for it if its really that big an issue..Personally, I never liked touchpads I use them as a last resort

    Good luck

    Graphics card is located near the caps lock/ tab key, but I imagine the heat radiates from the gpu to the palm rest area. Wish I could add more heat pipes or something to dissipate and transfer the heat better.

    Same thing happened to me. The only solution seems to be to try again. Dammit, if only I could remember that file...

    Ok, I try to make this simple. Just to be sure its gone.

    This method, I commonly use to handle ATI driver problems

    First Uninstall AMD, select express...this should remove all most recent version.
    Reboot
    Run Driver Sweeper, Check ATI Drivers
    Reboot
    Install HP AMD Radeon Driver, also select CCC
    Reboot
    ?????
    Profit

    Good Luck

    Here's a Registry Key that will let you enable Middle Click by clicking Left and Right at the same time. I got it from my old Dell Inspirion years ago. I have used it on my old DV6000 and new dv6tse.

    Copy the following into Notepad and save with a .reg extension and then double click the file to add to the registry. Restart the computer and you will have the option for middle click like the Dells.

    Thanks kdogg, but i downloaded the Dell Studio Synaptic driver and it had middle click and frankly was less jumpy. The driver directly from Synaptic's site is also better, featuring tap zones, although does not have middle click. I'm over that now, I even bypass clicking the buttons altogether by using tap zones, which are much better.

    What is concerning me now is that the touchpad seems to be getting loose. On the front side, I can feel it's bumping out and I can see some space between the actual touchpad and the metal. I don't know, I'm still not sold by this laptop, still considering to return it. I mean my rugged Dell is 3.5 years old and I still don't feel much of a change or improvement in the overall experience. It's certainly not a $1000+ worth of a change. It could be the screen or the speakers or even the keyboard, I don't know...
