T490...2 days in the keyboard and touchpad. Very different 'feel' from my T440?

2019-11-07, 23:51 PM

got it used, 512 ssd, 8650 processor for <$1100 boxed.

I noticed compared to my t440 the keys on the keyboard are plastic and glossy feeling. if i put lotion on my hands they will sort of slide without resistance compared to my older t440 keyboard (weird analogy I know)

The touchpad is opposite, it offers too much resistance and isn't as precise ot glide and click. From what I have seen on Lenovo's website both the keyboard and touchpad only have one default option? Kind of dissapointed in the build quality TBH
