Chromebooks Come Equipped with Exclusive ClickPad Technology

The recently launched Acer and Samsung Chromebooks are exclusively equipped with a Synaptics ClickPad, which provides full-time finger tracking capability, more accurate touch detection and allows multi-touch gestures.

While fully integrated into the ChromeOS, the large ClickPad facilitates easy Web browsing, scrolling through pages of content and flicking through photos and videos.

Mark Vena, senior vice president and general manager of the PC Division at Synaptics is convinced Chromebook users will come to appreciate ClickPad features: “Synaptics is excited to participate in the ground-breaking collaboration with Google, Acer and Samsung that is enabling the next wave of mobile cloud computing. OEMs looking to enhance the end-user experience with Chromebooks will utilize ClickPads with Image Sensing technology for better navigation and gesture performance.”

These ClickPads, according to users, provide your fingers with more space for performing multitouch gestures and help reduce accidental swipes, taps and clicks.
