Most people using laptop prefer to use USB mouse for convenience rather than touch pad
Most laptop users avoid using Touch pad, many more reasons like inconsistency and hassle finger movement on touch pad surface., for new user its takes more seconds than normal to point of selected area, selecting text from documents, etc...
But when traveling, the external mouse is not comfort ever as per my experience
Other people use keyboard shortcuts to perform operation, and some times it requires two hands on keyboard while working with shortcuts
People suffering from these common issues don't need to worry about, thanks to scrybe's gesture control technology.
