Questions before I buy

I'm considering buying a Samsung series 5 chromebook, but have some questions first:

1. Does this model support attaching a wired or wireless mouse? I have big hands and have trouble using the touch pad on most laptops.

2. Can the touch pad be turned off? On my current netbook, when I type the heels of my hands rest on the touch pad, which can result in the mouse jumping around. Luckily, I can turn off the touch pad easily, so I can type without issue.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can answer these questions.

I'm interested in buying a chromebook and the remote desktop feature would be a huge selling point for me. Russcasey you say using ThinVNC works to remotely connect to a computer through the browser. Does the free version allow you to connect to a computer over the internet or only over a lan connection? And how good is the connection? Is there much lag or is it comparable to a regular remote desktop connection from a windows computer to another windows computer?
