Product Information

  • 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.

    Bluetooth technology.

    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.

I use my Mac Mini hooked to a 42" HDTV, so using a mouse from the couch is pretty terrible. Even nice mice like the magic mouse have trouble tracking unless I use a lap desk and mouse pad, which isn't the most comfortable solution. With this, I can surf in comfort and give all of my iMac-using buddies Mac envy!

    Besides, with all of the multitouch gestures on the pad, this is the most versatile pointing device Apple makes! Here's hoping they make an iOS-based Apple TV and then make the touchpad a gaming controller too!

This is a great addition to my bluetooth keyboard & compliments my Waycom pad for photo work. I'm not sure if it's really 'worth' the upgrade over the magic mouse, but it is nice to have such a large gesture-based surface, much like the iPad. Props to Apple for thinking outside the box on this one, although the possibility & 'idea' of this technology could have happened a few years ago.

I've had an editing keyboard for some time that is suspended from the desk just above my knees but I had to reach up the the MBP to use the trackpad. This Magic Trackpad is the gadget I've been asking Apple for!

I am a fashion designer and music producer DJ. This combined with the bluetooth keyboard make a killer difference in my home studio and pro studio. Assigned Tap to Click and life is just a breeze. I hook up my MacBook Pro to a projector and in group sessions I can fly around the screen and edit so easily.

    Just bought this Trackpad to complement my iMac Retina.

    The 27 inch iMac screen is big and wonderful. I was struggling to get the Mouse to move far/fast enough. This device solves that problem. You need to get over the idea of clicking everywhere. Simple tapping does most of it.

    Things to watch. Setting it up is easy, but the light on the Trackpad is microscopic so it's not easy to see what's going on as a device links to the iMac for the first time.

    Likewise it's not intuitively obvious what you need to do to eg select groups of files and drag them somewhere. You sometimes end up using two hands, or at least I do. The video with the trackpad is not exactly helpful on the wide range of practical tasks you need to perform doing normal work when you are used to the mouse approach. Still, playing with it gets you there.

    All in all, an outstanding piece of kit. You won't look back.

The new MacBooks have larger ones, and inspired by how easy it is to use those, I picked up this one for use when my MacBook Air is connected to an external monitor and keyboard. It's just great, the huge surface area makes it easy to move the mouse almost anywhere on the screen without having to constantly raise the finger and reposition. I have it set on touch to click, never have liked physically clicking a button, and it works perfectly. To right-click it is best to position your fingers a little way apart. Scrolling is just so easy and natural. I only wish someone would make something similar for my work Windows machine! (Windows doesn't support it very well.)
