    LOVE IT!

    • Written by from Houston

    I have two of these now. One for my Mac Mini connected to my HDTV and one for my MacBook Air. I really can't say anything I don't like about the trackpad. I just love it!

    It also works perfectly with my new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (w/Jelly Bean). With that said, you would think it would also work with the iPad (iOS 6.1.2), but nope, it doesn't. Hey Apple, that's something to consider. I'll use the Tab 2 more now, especially in bed, so I don't have to reach up and touch the screen when reading or playing. :-)

    An amazing upgrade from a mouse!

    • Written by from Walnut Creek

    I stumbled upon the Magic Trackpad at work as a co-worker had one on his desk. I tried it out and went out that afternoon and bought one as I had been looking to replace the terrible wireless mouse that came with my iMac. The Magic Trackpad is amazing! No more mousing over to the scroll bar and clicking to scroll. No need to use the back and forth buttons on the web browser to browse through web pages, the Magic Trackpad does all this and more with simple finger gestures. The Magic Trackpad is very well built and looks great. It really is an impressive piece of Apple engineering at a great price.

    Won't go back to regular mouse

    • Written by from Ann Arbor

    The litmus test of how useful this product is for me is when I forgot to bring it into the office (it's pretty expensive, and for the time being I only have one). I was therefore forced to use my regular mouse, and it was just cumbersome. Indeed, I found myself going to the laptop's trackpad even though the laptop was on a stand to serve as a secondary monitor.

    In short, the feel of the trackpad, once set up properly, is perfect. If you like using the gestures on the Macbook trackpad, I think you'll like the magic trackpad even better.

    Perfect

    The Magic Trackpad is responsive, well built, and huge! It's size makes performing gestures an enjoyable experience rather than a chore.

    One word: Excellent!

    • Written by from Scott

    Works on my 2007 MBP, which is a Macbook that was made before they put the trackpads stock on Apple mobile PCs. Makes the stock keyboard useless. Really fun to use. Great job on the engineering Apple once again.

    Great Product

    • Written by from Maribyrnong

    I recently bought this item on Boxing Day and have had it for a couple of days now. Just had to write a review because it is amazing. Its responsive, doesn't disconnect at all, easy to use and set up, and looks and works great with the Apple wireless keyboard. The only problem with it was clicking and select things. To solve this, just go on System Preferences, Trackpad, and select "Tap to click".

    Overall, great product, highly responsive and highly recommend using with the wireless keyboard. Worth the money and great quality.

    Magic? No, just Apple doing what it does best!

    • Written by from Brookhaven

    The Magic trackpad is an amazing little device that expands your trackpad on your MacBook pro, and if an iMac user, it unlocks a world of touch and responsiveness only Apple could provide. It has a beautiful sleek design and goes with all of your apple made products. I ordered one after using the one that we have in my computer class, learning how to do Photoshop and other various applications from Adobe. I find my self going to the trackpad for comfort in class (we have both mouse options (trackpad and the Magic Mouse)) and it is just as accurate! Would most certainly recommend!!!

    VERY COMFORTABLE!

    • Written by from Burwood

    I bought this track pad a few months ago and recently realised i got so used to it that i never want to ever use the magic mouse which i was so comfortable with in the beginning.Time goes by and technology gets so advanced that we are forced to leave some things we liked.Anyway the track pad is very good to use and makes me access my computer very very comfortably.Iam sure the magic mouse has its advantages too.so its always my back up .Good technology apple!

    Makes using a MPB as a desktop replacement a joy

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    I use my MBP in many different places but primarily at my office desk. When in the office, I want to use the MBP as a desktop replacement, so I purchased a Thunderbolt Display. When first using the MBP - Thunderbolt Display combination, I found using MBP keyboard and trackpad awkward.

    As part of a solution, I purchased a Magic Trackpad. This would allow the MBP to sit back with the Thunderbolt Display. My fear was that it would not have the same feel as the MBP trackpad or that it would be difficult to use. My fears were unfounded!! It works every bit as well! In fact, the Magic Trackpad is so light and easy to use, I usually pack it for on-the-road use.

    Apple got this perfect! 5 stars!

    Love and hate this one.

    • Written by from Gateshead

    This product is very good and practical for all desktop users out there. With Magic Trackpad you can take advantage of multi gesture and other fancy stuff OSX offers. So I got one and loving it, but I never felt this device can replace my mouse. When it comes to do something like editing a picture I don't feel this device is sensitive enough, so I just use Magic Trackpad for day to day task like read emails and browse web and use Magic Mouse when I want to work. But still I cant live with or without it!!

    This trackpad is really cool... got it for less than 24 hours and I am already hooked with it. Noticed that some people don't know how to turn off. Hold the ON button for more than 2-3 secs to OFF it.

    Excellent if you are used to it

    • Written by from Oakland

    I have high end gaming mice that are very good for work (function assignments). However, I thought I would mix it up with a Trackpad. I have not experienced any of the issues listed like sweet spots or failure. It is just an extension of my MacbookPro. Out of the box and rock and roll. I even use Parallells with Windoze and it is great. Right-Click two finger tap and you can fly through Windoze apps. I suppose it is whatever you are used to but I like it.

    Poor Form.

    • Written by from Kingston Beach

    My oldest boy has autism and as such my wife and I are incredibly busy. An iPad was recommended by his therapist as there are a number of apps that are really great for a kid in his situation (and i should add it's been awesome) . However after spending over $800 on an iPad, we're hardly going to buy a desktop as well. But no pointing device support for the iPad. This means it's way harder and slower than it needs to be to do the most basic computing tasks, there's support for a keyboard- why not pointing device? Seems a little greedy to ask people to buy iPods, phones, pads and laptops, when just one device COULD replace them all! Even without a visible cursor on the screen, a touchpad would make life so much easier!
    Poor form Apple.

    Better than a mouse

    • Written by from Plano

    I'm a road warrior and have only worked from a laptop going on 16 years. I finally made room on my desk at home for a monitor so bought Apple keyboard and trackpad. Easy transition when I get the opportunity and no noise of a mouse being dragged across your desk. All the gestures like on the MBP.

    Favorite input device - ever!

    • Written by from Fort Worth

    Once I started using this trackpad I couldn't go back to the magic mouse and I really liked that little gem too. You can set this trackpad up to be incredibly fast and gestures become immediately intuitive. No moving parts to worry about is nice. And I didn't have any issues with the Bluetooth set up at all.

    Alkaline batteries seem to drain every two or three weeks so I use lithiums which last several months. This is a KEEPER!

    Changed my way of computing

    • Written by from Weston

    I've been a geek since the 70's, and short of the first mouse I ever used, nothing changed my input technique as much as the Trackpad....ever. I would never go back to a mouse.

    Brilliant!

    One of apple's best!

    • Written by from boardman

    The magic trackpad might just be the greatest accessory apple has made. I just recently purchased an iMac and instead of going with the magic mouse I chose this instead and have not regretted that decision for one minute. Its looks great but most importantly its functional. I have to run a lot of programs that require responsive and functional mice, (auto cad, rhino, photoshop, indesign, revit, sketch up, 3ds max, etc. by the way Im an architecture student) and this track pad knocks it out of the park. So if you are looking for something to run some serious programs or just to have a really cool mouse to show friends give this a shot I am almost certain you will love it. Plus it will feel like a natural transition from iPhone to your computer. Enjoy!
