I've never really use these trackpads on laptops. Why do people use them and why do you think the soft rim one is the best, not sure how there would be a noticeable difference between them.

cherry blacks - unlubed - filmed and springswapped with tx 55g mediums - alu Plate | pretty happy with this, the blacks were cherry picked so they weren't that scratchy to begin with, but currently breaking them in, may lube them with a dry lube like ro59 or ptfe powder.

lubed with tribosys 3203 | like topre a lot, prefer it lubed but did make less tactile but that might have been a skill issue. probably will get more tactile over time as the domes age.

bad orange alps lol | definitely needs a restoration. planning on wax boiling them and maybe a replacement pcb because the board has only 2 key rollover apparently.

gateron yellows - lubed with 205g0 - 62g tx mediums - pc plate | probably my favourite keyboard already, feels super nice and sounds pretty good, it's got a great layout as well. probably gonna build this with mx browns, I feel like it would suit the board more.

stock with silent reds | Pretty cool looking board, the silent reds are actually good, they are smooth and I don't mind the mushiness (it's not even that mushy as well). the layout is pretty weird, but is useable. will probably mod this in the future. maybe a pcb and plate swap, change the keycaps to something dolch like, and also spring swap the springs in the silent reds.

Why do people use them


They are very convenient, and I think they are faster and simpler than track pads. But I mine has the usual dome and I don't think I have tried any others.
Now we see why the media hates Biden, he's old and boring and talks policy.
They want to hear about Hannibal Lector eating people, cancer windmills, electric sharks and ****.

The rim one is much easier to hold down while scrolling, The dome one is good, but your finger slides off if you hold it down.
