    Fantastic!!!!

    • Written by from dallas

    My first generation magic mouse broke and i needed a replacement. The ball stopped scrolling downward. Obviously i thought to upgrade to the new magic mouse because I had used it a couple of times and was pretty impressed. Somehow I ended up with the trackpad instead. Must say I wasn't crazy about the trackpad, honestly i didn't see its use because most people who use the laptop trackpad always need a mouse to go through their days work more efficiently. Man was i wrong.

    This thing is amazing. Think of all your iPad and iPhone gestures on your Lion iDevices. I noticed that when using the mouse you would still need to move the pointer to the corners of your screen to execute certain functions like show desktop, all applications, mission control etc, with the magic trackpad there's no need dragging the pointer. It's customized for gestures to execute these features no matter where the pointer might be.

    I also used to think that dragging would be cumbersome on the trackpad. It's highly customizeable and gives you the option to drag freely without having to hold anything down.

    Honestly you will not be able to appreciate this device until you have used it. We all like to read about reviews and watch videos before buying stuff but this is one gadget you will have to use to understand. Get it you will not be disappointed. I'm surprised apple hasn't marketed this product more elaborately.

    As good as it gets

    • Written by from Grand Junction

    Just another great product from apple. If you use a unibody MacBook pro but miss the great touch pad when using your iMac, Mac mini, or Mac pro then this is exactly what you need. I thought the pad on the a book pro was huge, but this pad is a lot larger and you can use all the gestures that you use on you MacBook. Also the smoothness of the glass surface feels great plus it won't show any wear patterns like the plastic one and the sensitivity doesn't change over time.

    Once again Apple delivers a stunning product no one else seem to be able to figure out. No wonder apple is the worlds most valuable company.

    This is really magic from Apple

    • Written by from Toronto

    I made a good decision switching to Apple. They really make quality products with unique design. The magic trackpad is awesome. I can't go back using a mouse. The trackpad is very easy to use, little hard to learn in the beginning but you will get used to it.

    Thank you Apple

    Just the thing.

    • Written by from Toronto

    I got the Magic Trackpad to replace an aging wireless USB mouse whose responsiveness had always been a little spotty and that ate batteries.

    This new device is great. It's bigger than the trackpad on the laptop, so I can just reach over and use it without looking. The bluetooth connection is flawless, and the sensitivity of the response matched my existing settings right out of the box.

    Especially with OS X Lion's switch to inverted scrolling and making gestures (swipe up/down/left/right, pinch zoom, etc.) on all devices more cohesive, having a wireless trackpad makes perfect sense.

    Only Apple Could Make The Mouse Obsolete!

    • Written by from Ventnor

    This is probably, in my opinion, the single best leap forward to best the typical mouse in the history of peripherals! I have for years wondered why someone hadn't taken the trackpad from a laptop and made it available alone for any desktop. Well from the maker of the almighty "mouse" comes it's absolute replacement for any desktop Mac or Windows driven. It makes using my iMac 27" (current model as of February 6th, 2012) so much easier and intuitive. Which is what Apple does best, making products we all want to use and own. Mac's look good and even better are stable, IMO the most stable and intuitive, and safe way to get yourself online.

    No Windows based computer or laptop could or can come close to the ease of use and intelligence in it's operating system. A system that Windows continues to try and copy over and over with every new version. Mac OS Lion is superb and really has this new track pad in mind since it has so many different ways to swipe, crunch, widen, and my favorite--flip back and forward between website pages. With just a flip of the finger you can go forward or back between pages. Instead of using the mouse to move back and forth or move the cursor to pick the forward or backward arrow on the top of the browser.

    Love this product beyond words and once again made by Apple. As is most things that are truly intuitive and made for people to use easily. The Magic Trackpad redefines how we do something so simple in our everyday online time.

    wWay to go Apple. Great product an really makes me scratch my head as to why someone else hadn't perfected the replacement of a mouse. But then again who else was going to do this? Certainly nothing from the Labs (and I use that term loosely) of Microsoft. Lol. Sorry to be such an obvious fanboy for Apple but lets be real, there's a reason that Apple as a company is growing in leaps and bounds.

    Great product... with a few oddities!

    • Written by from Eden Prairie

    Works great, however sometimes it looses contact with my Macbook Pro and then connects seconds later. When it re-connects it causes the top window on my display to shift ever so slightly, which can be distracting. Also if it is not on a flat surface it will not click. If you get dust or any other type of desktop debris on the feet it won't work. Knowing this I keep mine clean and don't have a problem. You could play a joke on someone by purposely making the feet un even and watch them try to figure it out!

    Love the Magic Trackpad. The multi-touch gestures make it so convenient, and easy to use. Takes up much less space than a typical mouse, and does so much more. Highly recommended.

    Truly Magic

    • Written by from ORINDA

    I have a MacMini and I take it with me back and forth between office and home. I use Magic Mouse at work and Magic TrackPad at home. After a while, I find Magic TrackPad has won the competition. Instead of buying another MTP and use it at work, I bought a sleeve for it and take it to and from work together with MacMini. A great piece of device, which works wonder with OS X Lion.

    Great Product

    • Written by from Bristow

    I played with the trackpad at the Apple Store a few months ago. Absolutely loved it and it feels like it is more precise than moving a mouse around. The only reason I won't buy it is because it runs on batteries. I really wish Apple made a USB version.

    Was a magic mouse user, now LOVE the Magic Trackpad!

    • Written by from Trussville

    I have not cared for trackpad-type "mice" having had them as an add-on for my desktop when they were first available, and on laptops since. I found them difficult to use compared to a good mouse or even the "eraser-point" devices on IBM laptops. I even tried using one on my friend's new MacBook Pro 2 years ago - I didn't like it and plugged in my favorite wireless mouse to set the laptop up for him.

    This changed this year when my daughter got a new MacBook Pro! I really liked the new multi-finger gestures supported by the integral trackpad and OS X Lion! I picked up using the trackpad in a few hours and even found myself smiling while using it to set up the laptop - joining the family wireless LAN, adding family pictures and our music library, etc.

    Last week I dropped my favorite mouse, the venerable Magic Mouse, and this time it didn't survive. I can't complain - I've dropped it at least a hundred times. I have a condition similar to narcolepsy; I suddenly fall asleep and slump back in my chair. Feeling the motion, I react by involuntarily jerking my shoulders, causing me to sling the mouse - which is in my hand - from the desktop to the floor. The magic mouse is sturdy enough that there are gouges in the hardwood floor where the mouse frequently lands. It didn't make it this last time, even though it didn't come apart. It was unable to "click" anymore.

    Needing a new mouse immediately, after thinking about my mouse needs, as well as the likelyhood of me ruining another $69 Magic Mouse, I decided on a Magic track because you don'y "hold" it and because it had excellent reviews. Two days later, it was in my hands.

    It is WONDERFUL!. I will be using it as long as I can use my computer (2007 20" iMac). The only adjustment I had to make was to use the control panel to set for my lighter touch, and I've been off and running. Thank you Apple!

    After 20+ years ...

    • Written by from Culver City

    After more than 20 years of working with PC mice, the purchase of the Magic Trackpad with a (first) MacBook Pro purchase five months ago was an incredible revelation. Silent. Smooth and perfectly integrated with Lion. No movement on desk. No crud on mouse. Touching more natural than twisting your wrist. Note: this trackpad can be placed in the correct location to the right or left of your (bluetooth) keyboard. Thus it is possible to comfortably and rapidly use your index finger(s) on it. In contrast, the trackpad built into the current MacBook Pro lines under the keyboard in the center seems stiff, noisy, and is best tamed using a heavy touch with your thumb. If you use a MacBook with external keyboard (bluetooth highly recommended) and an external monitor, then you need this trackpad pure and simple. Computing got more fun and wrist pain is gone.

    AWESOME!!!!!

    • Written by from Toronto

    Ever since I got my abc mini in 2010, I have been using this amazing trackpad. Thin, quiet, and awesome. Try hooking your mac mini up to a 50" HDTV and working from the couch. This september, I got a MBP, which also has this trackpad. Connected the other one to my MBP once or twice when I wanted some distance, and to work in the dark. Great product. (especially with osX Lion)
