Precision Touchpads for a Seamless Touch Experience
Acer has widely implemented Precision Touchpads (PTP) on both consumer and commercial notebooks, allowing a unified Windows user experience across the touchpad and touchscreen, providing touchpad gestures and behaviors consistent with those of a touchscreen. Better accuracy is achieved through higher resolution hardware and built-in palm rejection, while all of this quality and functionality is provided right out of the box, with no additional drivers needed and settings easily adjustable through the Windows Control Panel.

Products that will support the upgrade range from entry level 2-in-1’s such as the Aspire Switch 10 E, to high end premium convertible devices such as the Aspire R13. With multiple modes for devices that are built for touch, users will be able to take full advantage of the all the powerful new features in Windows 10.
