    The Razer Touchpad is amazing, as in amazingly good it's just that Windows 10 apparently isn't that good. I'm not sure what's going on here but I used my early razer Blade Advanced for several years now and it's been among the best systems I've ever owned, even though it's been replaced 2 times as I had Camera Issues. The first replacment was just a whole system replacement, which was no bueno, and then they fixed and replaced the only LCD unit which seemed to get the job done.

    Getting back on topic, so I realize we can't talk about Hacintosh, but i did hackintosh my system and the touchpad started working even better, but I didn't relaize that at first. I was using OSX for about 6 months straight then for whatever reason went back to Windows 10 and then I started having touchpad issues again. Here I went a month in Windows 10 before finally going back to OSX and then it just hit me that it's software. I had originally assumed that my system was getting old and that perhaps in it's age the touchpad (Physical) was being to show its age.

    I was totally wrong, it's software, I have issues where the secondary click isn't as concise or it's ability to detect 2 finders is no where adequate enough. Often it just gets the one finger vs two finger constantly wrong. But as soon as I switch to OSX it detects it just fine, which prompted to realize that it wasn't a hardware failure but software.

    Is there anytihng I can do in Windows 10 to improve it's detection of one finger vs 2 finger? it's misclicking like crazy for me, while the problem almost never persist while in OSX.

    I even bought the 2020 Razer Blade with the 2080 SC and OLED Touch, but because OSX isnt running properly on it, I haven't touched it yet but I suppose the fact that it's somewhat thicker has me also kind of sad.

    Hackintosh is permitted to be discussed here, that rule was repealed some time ago. Razer Blades would make the obvious candidate for hackintosh. However, the discrete GPU must be disabled as there is no nvidia support in macOS. VoodooI2c is used for touchpad support, and you must also patch DSDT and swap out the intel wifi card for a broadcom card that matches native device ids in the Apple kexts. Hackintosh is a pain to get set up correctly.

    It has less to do with MacOS and more to do with the brilliant devs behind VoodooI2C
