I don't care for pads so I use a mouse.
Windows 10 seems to have incorporated a lot of touchpad improvements. So I gave Windows 10 a try on a Lenovo u31-70. I used the cheapest base model, but I assume higher models (which can cost unto $899 on Amazon) use the same trackpad.
OS X-like gestures such as 3-swipe to show windows do exists, but they sometimes work and sometimes don't. Sometimes to finger scrolling is recognized as 3-swipe up. Pinch-to-zoom on Edge is not smooth, but choppy like those touchpad that simply translated pinch to zoom to Ctrl + plus on Windows 7.
The biggest problem though is palm rejection. I have been using the entry model 2010 white Macbook, and never had palm problem. I can type confidently on the Macbook. On Lenovo u31-70 however, palm rejection is also hit and miss. Quite often, the mouse cursor slightly rattles by palm.
Are these Windows' inherent problems or just the problems of some Windows laptops? Do you know any Windows 10 laptop whose touchpad is as reliable as that of a Macbook? I do not mean a Windows laptop whose trackpad has as many features as those of a Macbook; I just mean reliability. Particularly, gestures are not recognized as other wrong gestures, and good palm rejection.
