Hey HP & Community,
The title pretty much sums up my question. I mean, the hack works really well, so it doesn't seem to be a hardware condition.
Is this a business decision that they might have a deal with Synaptics where they have to provide the Synaptics drivers?
Or is the whole process of offering a driver download for their products (testing compatibility and all the stuff they would have to do in legal terms, warranty, etc.) not as easy as it sounds to me?
I just can't imagine that it's just lazyness, there has got to be something. Would this move actually be a big deal?
Maybe they would have to spend money, but don't get any from, might that be a reason?
I was just wondering, because the experience is really different and much better with the precision drivers, so I'd love some insight.

Thanks for the info. I believe I can sum up: they are TWO different companies and in many cases agrrements between 2 or 3 parties are more complicated than we thought.
Users can try at their own risk.
Hope this makes sense.

I have to agree with youngfinn that it is a complete disappointment that a ~$1500+ laptop does not have Windows Precision drivers.
Windows Precision drivers should be considered as the most fundamental touchpad support. My relative's ~$400 Acer Swift 1 feels like a god when doing simple tasks just because of better touchpad support.
BTW be careful with the hack as I believe it may or may not break down with some updates.
I'm hoping HP can start switching it up sooner or later.

But I’m not too worried about breaking it, as I have a couple of restore points and stuff like that.
