The bug is in the 4.18 kernel. You have to use 4.17 kernel. I have the exact same system and issue and this is the only thing I've found that works.

This is now resolved, looks like after doing a few bios updates the touchpad was working. Also had to disable wayland as it caused the laptop to verheat and made it slow when using mouse etc.
