I guess it's always possible to just get a new touchpad if so though.
On a sidenote, whoever is making decisions about touchpads at Lenovo really needs to be fired. This touchpad is incredibly nice without that silly sticker, as nice as a Macbook's in my opinion.
And of course the touchpads on later Thinkpads went completely off the rails in my opinion.

2) not sure what your talking about. Outside of the *40 series which was a complete piece of crap, the 50 and on series actually have quite nice touchpads, far superior than anything on the 30 and before series.
The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
As far as other touchpads, I'm not sure the model exactly but every later thinkpad I've used had unusable touchpads. I've never used one without separate buttons that I'd call usable. It's why I still use the t530, it's the latest thinkpad I've found that is usable.
And whoever decided a) that a sticker was an improvement to this fantastic touchpad and b) that of all stickers this abrasive bumpy monstrosity is the best choice shouldn't be allowed to make any other product decisions. But judging by their later mistakes I'd say they did.

You can get touchpad stickers in any color you like as well. https://www.skinstyler.com/pc/plain-colours-c-18.html
You could also buy a fruit-sticker, such as this: https://www.ebay.ie/itm/283675387097 and cut it to size.

The touchpad feels fantastic without any sticker. I'm wondering if the touchpad wears out quickly without a sticker.
