Recently I started having some problems while typing on my Acer laptop....While I'm typing the cursor will sometimes jump back to an sentence above or between letters. I've done a search about this problem and mostly the answers I see are it's caused by accidently touching the touch pad. That's not the case here. I've had this laptop over a yr and the problem only started about 2 weeks ago.
I have been having the same problem for some time now with my Acer laptop and windows vista. What worked for me was changing a Mouse setting in the Control Panel. Go to Control Panel -> Mouse. Then go to the "Tapping" tab and make sure that the "Tap off when typing" box is Checked

Have you checked the moue and keyboard settings see if there is something in the settings...one computer I would recommend to check the keyboard wiring but with two that would be quite a coincidence. If the mouse is chasing the cursor then its got to be a software issue..also run spyware software on both. Spyware captures keystrokes so could be affecting the keyboard pointer settings.
Since you have a logitech mouse, lets just disable the touchpad. You should be able to disable the touchpad via one of these methods:
Look on the top row of keys. You should have one that looks like a little mouse. If you do, hold down the "fn" key in the bottom, and press the key with the mouse on it. That *should* disable the touchpad.
Go to the control panel, and find the keyboard and mouse settings. Digging through the menus, you should find a touchpad. You can disable it through there.
Touch Freeze will disable the touchpad when you start typing. I have not used it, but give it a try.
Also, your touchpad could be wearing out or a driver reinstall could be in order. My wifes Toshiba had a bad touchpad and the cursor would jump all over the place. I disabled it and she now uses an external mouse. No problems anymore.
