EDIT: A windows computer has finally been able to copy Apple's glass trackpad. Can't say I'm happy about it, though. "we were happy to learn that Lenovo's engineers developed a completely new touchpad for the X1 Carbon. One of the first things you'll notice about the new touchpad is that it's larger than the old one (37% larger than the touchpad on the original X1). It's actually a "clickpad" (a buttonless touchpad surface that lets you click anywhere) with multi-gesture support. Also, the performance of this touchpad is more accurate than the old X1 with 10 times the data throughput from the touchpad to the PC (meaning more accurate tracking of your fingertips). The big secret, however, is the amazing new glass touchpad surface." I usually hate trackpads. I loathe them. I even use those trackballs in the middle of the keyboard instead of standard trackpads. But Apple's trackpad is different. For someone who never ever uses trackpads for even browsing, I've been using the MBP glass trackpad for everything including light gaming (like minecraft - nothing serious). My question is, why hasn't anybody else been able to get it right? Is there an audience out there that prefers those windows trackpads? The matte texture, poor accuracy and dedicate click buttons seem like a definite no to me. Whenever Apple gets something right, it's not long before everybody starts to do it. So why aren't windows laptops catching on yet? Apple's patents haven't really stopped anyone. Also, what is it about the trackpad that makes it so nice? I'm considering getting a magic trackpad just because it's so good!
