    A computer touchpad provides an alternative to a standard computer mouse. It senses your finger's movement and downward pressure and allows you to move the cursor around your computer screen accordingly. A touchpad can be used with a desktop or laptop computer. It is both lightweight and compact. Also, a touchpad is intended for business professionals and consumers alike. Some touchpads include multimedia shortcuts and hot keys. Various touchpads offer a 2-finger scroll feature, similar to what’s used on tablets and phones. A touchpad is portable and will fit inside a suitcase or backpack. It even works in combination with a wide range of PC, laptop, and Mac models.
