Would it be physically possible to replace a T460s touchpad with a newer model touchpad?

2019-05-18, 0:49 AM

Hi

 

Just as the title says,

 

I have a T460s but am underwhelmed with the touchpad technology

 

Would like to see if I can put a newer style 'precision touchpad' with gestures, etc. in it if I can find one on ebay, etc.

 

Is, say the T480s touchpad (Elan) the same dimensions and electronically compatible with the T460s' synaptics touchpad interface?

 

Thank you

Avery

Hi AveryFreeman!

 

Thanks for posting in the Community,

 

With the position of the touchpad screws on the T460s (Top picture), upgrading it to T480s touchpad (Bottom picture) is not possible.

 

Regards,
