I've been looking for a new laptop that has Synaptics touchpad drivers, and eventually paying a premium (for me) for an otherwise normal laptop: Acer TravelMate P2 P2410-G2-M NX.VGTAA.006.
I'm am not sure how relevant the hardware is to my problem.
A key factor behind my decision is that the laptop apparently comes with Synaptics When I got the laptop, however, there was no Synaptics. So I would have to install it.
What are the risks of breaking something on my new Windows 10 machine, either permanently or (almost as bad) in a way that takes a lot of time to recover from? I just noticed that the driver page only allows OS filtering for Windows XP!
AFTERNOTE: I found a drivers page that seems to more appropriately target my laptop. Since Synaptics is absent from this site, in my mind, the risk of installing from the 2nd site above is greater. It's important enough to me that I'd still want to try it, if I can get a sense of the risk. Unfortunately, the more appropriate drivers page is incredibly elusive. I found it by somehow wandering to this page.
