    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!

    Far superior to the mouse in most situations

    • Written by from Greenville

    I just purchased this item and already it is much easier to use than even the Magic Mouse. I will still keep my mouse for the few applications that require it, but I adore the trackpad. It is comfortable to use and the gestures, once you learn them, are highly intuitive. Finally a trackpad for a desktop computer! A+, Apple!

    Great bluetooth connectivity!

    • Written by from Andover

    Although I love the Magic Mouse, the trackpad keeps the connection much further away than the mouse. I use this with my MacMini and TV and stream videos. Bigger surface too. Get it, you'll love it

    Magic Trackpad

    • Written by from Hutchinson

    I'm not even remotely close to being as computer "savvy" as most people that post here. I don't know for sure how this thing works, and I don't care. In my opinion, it's the best thing since sliced bread. Buy it, connect it, read the instructions, then just play with it! My mouse is in the desk drawer, batteries removed.

    I can swipe pages. I can scroll. I like it so much!!! But it does not replace a mouse. I have a wired mighty mouse.

    It's gorgeous and functional.

    • Written by from Burnaby

    I wanted the trackpad because I wanted a desktop setup where my Macbook Air was attached to an external monitor. Since I was so pleased with the Air's trackpad, I decided the trackpad would be great for using at the desk. The trackpad works perfectly with OS X Lion, and now Mountain Lion. Once users have experienced what multi-gestures can do, they will find it hard to go back. I sure did. I think this hardware works flawlessly, and I'm glad I bought it. Using the Macbook Air at the desktop with anything else like a regular mouse would have felt clunky and slow.

    Great Technology

    • Written by from Davenport

    I read many of the reviews regarding this new device, and don't understand why people are complaining. Must be PC People! Lol

    Easy to setup, works just like a notebook pad and has more functionality.

    Trackpad = Magic

    • Written by from Mckinney

    When Apple introduced this product, I thought they were crazy. I didn't think this product solved any real customer need. After trying it out in the store, I decided to buy one and play with it. After using it for the last year, I will *never* go back to a mouse again. I use one on my MBP & another on my MacMini. It really is Magic.

    Gift for the 'rents

    • Written by from Omaha

    I bought the magic trackpad as a Christmas present for my parents. They use it with their iMac and love it! it has plenty of space to move your fingers and clicking does not take a lot of force. Battery life is really good, too.

    yay for Apple getting it right!

    • Written by from VANCOUVER

    have been an Apple fan for over a decade, but have always loathed their mouse. Even the newer Magic Mouse is a brick to move and is too large and heavy for the comfort of my hand & wrist. The Magic Trackpad is AMAZING though! The customization options really seal the deal for me. Now I can use über light touches to control and move the cursor. Working in Logic & Garageband is a beautiful thing with the trackpad, and much to my surprise so is Photoshop. Before I had to hear every click of the mouse, now there is nothing but QUIET! love, love, love- Apple is finally doing it right! Just say no to mouse.

    Love it!

    • Written by from framingham

    Makes my sturdy old Mac Pro (2007) feel like new again. The gesture functionality works seamlessly, setup was painless and quick. Much less strain on my wrist, already bad after two decades of heavy mouse usage.

    Dislikes: nothing yet, will update if I find anything.

    Likes: Ease of setup. Ability to single and double click on pad (has to be setup in preferences), pinch and zoom (especially useful on large montors.

    Can not be happier with the purchase.

    Thank You!

    For those with carpel/wrist/flexor muscle issues, this product is a life-saver. With just a quick config change, just a mere tap with any finger anywhere on the pad is a click. Within a day, I noticed the difference.

    This thing really is magical. I would definitely recommend to any mac mini, iMac, or Macbook w/ external display setup. Really compliments OS X and all of its awesome features.

    So far, so good

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I fell in love with this peripheral at the 5th Ave Apple Store where it is paired with nearly all iMacs on display. It's not ergonomic when standing but when seated normally, I find it to be a perfect angle. For several years I have been using a Kensington Expert Mouse and its angle did cause discomfort after some time so I had to take frequent breaks which wasn't always good for productivity.

    So far I haven't had any issues with the trackpad. Time will tell I suppose, particularly regarding the battery life as many have mentioned. I used to despise tap-to-click but now I embrace it. It's a perfect match for my late-2011 MPB. When I'm at home it sits on a stand and I use the slim wired keyboard and the trackpad. This is a pretty sweet setup.
