With the launch of Windows 7, I thought that I’d give the new touchpad drivers a try. Besides that stupid circular scrolling, you can’t do anything. Going from a Thinkpad T42p almost 5 years old to the E was a big downgrade. They’ve frozen on me probably twice in 6 months, and even with the sensitivity turned all the way up to lightest touch , it’s fine with me. I finally settled in on the E because we are a Dell shop and that back-lite keyboard is really cool.

Ever since I got my E, I kept thinking I got a bad laptop as the pointing stick is very choppy and just sucks. The touchpad is usable now it doesn’t freeze and it tracks much better.

Although you are not alone in your complaints, I’d like to remark here that I am using Dell’s drivers and am quite happy with the touchpad. The touch-point or what-ever it is called is really bad too when compared to the Thinkpads I have used. Hi, This is not the newest topic but it’s been well described that the Latitude E series’ touchpad is crappy. Even though the Thinkpad keyboard is famous, I actually find the E keyboard better, but that touchpad makes this thing a paper weight.
What an amazing difference!
Just a public service announcement since Dell will not ever fix these drivers. Dell latitude E bencSep 3,in forum: In fact, that’s how I use it. This is the worst touchpad and pointing stick that I can remember using on a laptop.
HipendicularOct 27, I compared every spec. It’s too bad, because the 15″ high-res LED screen is great, and the latiture thing is reasonable light, so I might have considered buying another if it weren’t for the input problems. Normally I wouldn’t care, but actually having a terrible nav system really stinks more than I toichpad it would. I know i’m one of the few, but I like the Latitude because they both a touch pad and a pointing stick but touchpqd because of the pointing stick.

I don’t think that the drivers are that bad. You can adjust the sensitivity in the DellTPad application.
