The description for is:

an input device commonly found on laptops, used in place of a mouse. Also called a touchpad.

And the description for is:

Questions related to the configuration and activation of touchpad/trackpads.

The two tags pretty much refer to the exact same thing, and so I think it makes sense to make those two tags synonyms.

They already are synonyms

Technically trackpads and touchpads are two different things that serve a similar function.

I think the tag descriptions should get altered to reflect that, I don't think they are synonyms personally but trackpad has so little use, it probably makes no difference.
