Dell XPS 13 (ultrabook) Trackpad problems
First of all I am really disappointed in Dell. Come on guys... you build an ultrabook with such good material, carbon fibre and etc. Go all the way through to make it light and durable and then install a trackpad that is so problematic? WHYYYY...? Don't you do any testing prior to release?!
Anyway, here is my problem. I have updated my ultrabook to the latest drivers, both touchpad and quickset and BIOS and... (everything). The touch pad (two finger scrolling, pinch zoom, 3 finger genstures..) all works. What drives me crazy is a simple "single tap click"! In random times when you click on something (single tap) it just wont click and stays the way it is until you move your finger over from where you clicked and then suddenly the click takes into effect. Its like that the single tap click is attached the the event of moving and it won't work until you move your finger (tiny bit) from where you clicked. And you cannot believe how annoying it is!
You know what? I really don't want to return this Ultrabook, as everyhting else works perfectly, and it is just shameful for the name of Dell to use such a buggy touchpad and after 4 months still not being able to programm a driver which resolves ALL the issues we are having. We all have read what other users have been through for the past 5 months until these drivers came out.
SO, hey DELL get stuff moving and develop a good driver, we all know writing a driver is sooo simple for your developers.
