When I travel, I take a netbook with me to work. It’s a big trade off for me since I am used to a massive and powerful desktop computer. The big issue for me with my netbook is that I often have to fight the urge to put it through a window when I lay my palm on the track pad and mess up what I am typing.
Synaptics has announced new tech at Computex today that I am excited to see come to market. This tech is called TouchPad-IS and not only can is support gesture control from four fingers at once, it can tell between a finger and a palm.
That means when I am typing away on a netbook using this tech I won’t have to worry about moving the cursor accidentally. When the track pad using the new tech senses your palm, it just doesn’t work. I want this tech in my netbook right now.Filed Under: Laptops
