Bart is making the point that it would be one of those major improvements in the touchpad so “(…) it can be used with a stylus, in absolute mode, turning it into a small drawing pad”
Interesting point of view. A few weeks ago I had made the decision to purchase a new laptop PC. After being a Tablet PC user since the launch of Windows XP Tablet Edition, I was used to having drawing capabilities with me at all times. However, that came at a cost. Not only in Euros (that too!!) but as well in speed, screen resolution and the choice between portability and affordability.
So yes, please dear hardware-constructors, hear this request for change so we can have a basic drawing pad in the touchpad. I am willing to pay a little more for the feature anyway!
