More control at your fingertips.
Magic Trackpad gives you a whole new way to control what’s on your Mac desktop computer. When you perform gestures, you actually interact with what’s on your screen. You feel closer to your content, and moving around feels completely natural. Swiping through pages on screen is just like flipping through pages in a magazine, and inertial scrolling senses the momentum in your fingers as you move up and down a page.
More to touch, more to love.
Your fingers will fall for the Magic Trackpad. It’s made with smooth, wear-resistant glass that feels great to the touch. And it’s nearly 80 percent larger than the built-in trackpad on the MacBook Pro, giving you plenty of room to perform gestures. Because the entire surface of Magic Trackpad is a button, you can click on objects just as you would using a traditional mouse. And Magic Trackpad sits at the same height and angle as the Apple Wireless Keyboard, so you can go from trackpad to keyboard in one seamless motion.
Magic Trackpad connects to your Mac via Bluetooth wireless technology. Use it in conjunction with the Apple Wireless Keyboard for a cable-free, uncluttered workspace. And if you feel like venturing away from your desk, Magic Trackpad maintains a reliable and secure connection up to 33 feet away from your Mac.

Does the magic trackpad work better than the magic mouse?
- Asked by Nicolaas S from Rumford
Well, for me personally, I never unpacked my Magic Mouse after working with my Magic Trackpad for a Well, for me personally, I never unpacked my Magic Mouse after working with my Magic Trackpad for a few hours. However, that's subjective and merely my own opinion. I have read that some people like to use both, depending on what they do on their Mac's.
Battery life is also not that great with the Trackpad. I purchased the Apple battery charger and believe me, between the wireless keyboard, the Magic Mouse, and the Trackpad, it won't take long until it will pay for itself. …

In either case, I recommend turning on the "Tap to click" and "Secondary click" options under Trackpad settings in the OS X System preferences. Then you can click by just lightly and silently tapping the surface of the trackpad, without ever setting off the click switch underneath the trackpad.
And if you need absolute silence for recordings, I also recommend sticking a few sheets of paper or a mousepad under the trackpad. If your desk isn't perfectly straight, the metal trackpad can wobble slightly when you push down on it, making a slight tapping noise on your desk.
Unfortunately for recording sessions, the Apple Keyboards click a lot as well, and I don't know a workaround for them. …
