Yes, that's quite right Andy. Although in real world practice I have not found it to be an issue.

So it's good that the unit has a number of USB slots, for external hard drives and mouses...

When used with the keyboard attached, there is the trackpad (I just HATE trackpads!) which in addition to having right and left buttons, is also optimized for Win8 gestures. When using it in tablet mode the button on the SPen functions as a right click. Also a long press sometimes acts like a right click, but I find that to be somewhat less than reliable.
