Re: T440s trackpad rattling noise and other issues

2014-04-17, 17:02 PM

I wouldn't hold your breath on the sound.  I had my trackpad replaced and while the sound isn't as jarring as it was originally, it is still quite bad.  The three T440s I have bought all sound this way.

 

Definitely post back if your trackpad gets quiet/silent like the X1 Carbon 2014.  If so, I will demand onsite replacement of all three trackpads ASAP.

Yeah... if it doesn't get fixed, then I'll just return the laptop and get X1. This noise makes the laptop unusable for me in the environments I'll be in.

Hello, 

 

Is there any more information about the trackpads? People stopped complaining so is it better?

No, most of us just moved onto different platforms or companies altogether.

I use a Bluetooth mouse as much as possible.  I really dislike the trackpad.  When I do use mouse controls on the laptop, I prefer the trackpoint so that the trackpad is just my buttons.

Why Lenovo decided that trackpoint users experience are not longer important is beyong me.

 

The new trackpad is, for click, horrible. Loud, hard to press and right click simply sucks.

 

If they don't change the design for the next iteration, I will change the brand. What's the point of having a Thinkpad if you cannot use the trackpoint?
