How are trackpads supposed to behave?

I just bought a Yoga 2 Pro with minimum specs. I like it, definitely the best laptop I have ever used though I haven't used many top notch ultrabooks. One thing that surprised me however is how good the trackpad is. 2 finger scrolling, gestures in IE, charms, navigating through UI, everything works perfectly. But according to the verge and the general tech crowd, it has an okay trackapad that doesn't even come close to the MacBook. Honest question, what does is not do as well as a mac? I'm I missing out on something?

Also, could someone who has used one recommend the best resolution to set it at? Right now, it's set to the maximum so everything non metro looks small, not unreadable, just small.
