Really need to swap the TOUCHPAD on my T440P.
So I keep reading about the Synaptics vs. ALPS versions.
1.) Does it really matter? If so why?
2.) How do you tell them apart if it isn't specified / on pictures?
Thanx šŸ¤“

To be honest, I never came across an alps touchpad in my 10-15 or so repairs of T450/T450s and trackpad replacements on the T440p machines.

Sebi did a great video on this topic explaining the differencs

The stickers are different on the back of the trackpad. Alps has two rows. At least I think
