Hi,

I'm 99% set on getting a GL551JW-DS74, but my main concern is with the touchpad.

This "Smart Gesture" app looks pretty lacking, and I'd like to have more options for gesture/multitap customization. Can anyone tell me what brand/model of touchpad is used in this laptop, and if there are any alternate drivers/apps you can use with the touchpad? Windows 8.1, naturally.

Thanks for your help.

I just tweaked my touchpad to allow for two finger right click using the following instructions:

I used the driver Version V11.5.16.2 found here:
http://www.asus.com/support/Download/3/589/0/21/41/

This driver gives you more options in regedit to customize your touchpad than the default driver that comes pre-installed on my G551JW-D71.

Immediately after I read your post, I just tried it. I've the latest drivers and everything and the double tap right click feature just worked for me..
