Samsung Series 9 Trackpad: Looks familiar. Surely, surely - surely - they will have made it work just as well as the one on the MacBook Pro? Surely?
What do you think? Here’s The Verge:
The Elan pad has a nice smooth physical surface, and most Windows gestures work pretty well, including the critical two-finger scrolling (complete with inertia) and both three- and four-finger swipes for multitasking maneuvers. Still, it’s not nearly as responsive as I’d like, and using it is a bit of a chore. Compared to a MacBook or some of the better Windows laptops we’ve used, tap-to-click has a slight delay, pinch to zoom is extremely awkward, and, most importantly, plain ol’ cursor tracking (you know, just moving around your pointer) feels abnormally slow even with the sensitivity turned up. It’s servicable and I’ve used far worse, and Samsung says the drivers may improve from here on out. The laptop doesn’t ship until April, and I’m already using drivers that are at least one revision newer than the original.
Well that sounds FUCKING EXCELLENT, doesn’t it? As Lord Gruber pointed out in relation to the Dell XPS 13 “good thing you don’t need to use the trackpad much on a notebook.” See also the HP Envy 15.
