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 purchased my iMac a couple months ago and chose to keep it with the trackpad. OMG, I was so right !

    Super comfy, it sits right next the Apple keyboard and at the same height. It sold with batteries in it and although not rechargeable, they lasted 2 whole months without issue.

    It's fast, it's natural to use (you can configure almost everything in it), the gestures are so convenient it's worth taking some time to learn them.

    It doesn't get dirty, it doesn't feel fragile, it's sensitive enough to just need to be slightly touched if needed, it's big enough that you don't need to drop and get back to scroll for a whole screen.

    I even surprise myself using it for some of my less demanding games (like MMORTS, like Stronghold Kingdoms...).

    Excellent product.

I can definitely tell you that within using this for 5 hours, the trackpad is the BEST! I love the gestures and how I can use this on the couch or on my lap. SUPERB QUALITY APPLE! :) AWESOME!

    I've almost exclusively used Mac laptops for almost a decade, and this adds up to a lot of practice on the keyboard/trackpad combo I've almost exclusively used Mac laptops for almost a decade, and this adds up to a lot of practice on the keyboard/trackpad combo. I've got in to the habit of using a lot of gestures and trackpad-style movements, and I miss them when switching to a desktop with a mouse. I certainly work quicker with a trackpad than with a mouse, at least under OSX

    There are a few other neat conveniences: There is no need for tidy desk space next to the keyboard for the mouse to move around in. The transition between pointing and typing is much quicker as they trackpad stays in a fixed position. A trackpad is also insensitive to the desk surface, so you can use glass or glossy-coated desks.

    It's possible to use the trackpad hand-held or on a soft surface so long as you turn on 'tap to click' under System Preferences. Otherwise, you do need to be on a hard surface to activate the clicking action, which is actually via the two domed feet at the base of the trackpad.

    This device would be little use if you are a gamer and, like most trackpads, it's not necessarily the ideal tool for some 3D design or CAD programmes.
