>>52286691 Don't care about gestures. However, my mouse has a few extra buttons I can map to whatever I want and all buttons and the wheel are configurable so I can double click, click and hold etc for a crazy amount of "gesture replacements".
>>52286762 That's fine but in principle multi-touch gestures can be as varied as you want. apple only exposes a handful (three/four fingers up, down, etc...) but it's not for lack of technical ability; even the 5-year-old trackpad would be able to recognize a very specific movements. The limitation is that people are probably not going to remember that many gestures.
Meanwhile, a mouse with hard buttons is generally limited by the number of buttons built on the mouse.
>>52286781 My mouse has eight buttons. Add context based on what window is up and the aforementioned configuration capabilities and I have more capability than the touchpad right now on top of faster, more accurate pointing.
Mouse is an absolute positioning device, touchpad is a relative one. Brain maps the position of mouse to the position of cursor, it can't do that with touchpad. Thus, it will always be slower. By definition. Also >right click is a gesture Trash.
>>52286851 Its pretty light, can move it around on your desk a lot easier than the first gen, which is why I got it, easy to take out and then put away. The battery lasts over a month. I disabled peek and pop because I found it difficult to get used to but I can see the appeal. It's really neat you don't have to care about where to press down to click.
>>52286876 yeah that's what I thought. I'm very excited about the trackpad I ordered which I'll be using together with my mouse. >precision+occasional dota=mouse >actual surfing/using spaces=trackpad Inertia scrolling is just godsent
Yet I admit there are some things they do right and one thing is touch technology, this thing is fucking smooth as butter and no other company comes close. I was coerced into trying one at work and it's really kind of awesome.
>>52286595 All new laptops have multifinger touchpads with all the touch gestures. Touch gestures are very comfy but aside from browsing the internet, they're pretty much useless. All the *buntu and mint distros have multifinger gestures by default
>>52286916 >many mice have a toggle scroll wheel that allows ratcheted and smooth scrolling. i've only found a small number of mouses to have this. most wheels either scroll smoothly or have a notched feedback kind of thing - not an option to toggle for both.
>>52289038 what the fuck are you talking about m8, touchscreens are typically shit on laptops and your arm gets tired after pressing on the screen. Also that screen wobble whenever you press it. And typically the on-screen buttons for things are still not optimized for touch properly. Unless you want to use shit-tier apps, using the trackpad is going to be better.
Fuck off with this frilly bullshit, Macfag. There isn't a single thing you can do waving your fingers across this piece of shit like an autistic violinist with down syndrome that can't be done faster with keyboard shortcuts.
>>52289225 Keyboard shortcuts aren't as intuitive and require a learning curve whereas you can pick up a trackpad and use it pretty quickly. You're bias and overexaggerated sense of masculinity is preventing you from thinking rationally
>>52291063 >>52286904 >>52286595 It's here. It's fucking beautiful and so damn smooth. only shitty thing is dragging and dropping which clearly isn't as easy as a real mouse. apart from I definitely recommend it if you have OS X. EVERYTHING IS SO DAMN SMOOTH Why is windows scrolling still so shit?
>>52286595 The problem with /g/ is that its biased too much against Apple. I just want to share how great touchpad gestures are but none of you want to listen because touchpad gestures are something associated with Apple, even though they have been implemented by literally all laptop manufacturers. I have a Dell Inspiron 3537 and when paired with Xubuntu, the trackpad turns into a magical experience, you move mouse like normal with one finger, by moving 2 fingers you scroll, by tapping two fingers you make a right click, by tapping 3 fingers you make a middle mouse button. Its really convenient. A shame majority of /g/ wont know of it because of their close mindedness
>>52293939 >>what are keybinds But they are arbitrary. Every one makes their own. Move to another PC and you're in Hell. >>implying you don't have to memorize gestures There's this thing called muscle memory. The gestures become second nature within days. I really miss them when I use a Windows PC.
