    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.

    Makes browsing so easy

    • Written by from Flowery Branch

    I love the Magic Trackpad. It makes browsing so much easier with the multi touch gestures. Just open it up, install the batteries and connect to your Mac. You will not be disappointed.

    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)

    Magic. For sight impaired folk - GET ONE - AND some additional batteries

    • Written by from California City

    I use an MBP Laptop with a Magic trackpad built in. I also use a height adjusting stand with a fan assisted cooling system built-in. There is a bar on the stand that impedes my using the built in Trackpad properly so I bought the second "Outboard" Trackpad.
    If you do buy this, take time to LEARN TO USE IT PROPERLY: learn to swipe, push and pull the screen image about and use all of its functions. (I love the double tap with three fingered "Look up" feature) In my humble opinion - use the Magic Mouse with discretion. It is completely unnecessary with this Trackpad working as mine now does. I did have to coax it along a tad. But now, it is excellent. (I am visually impaired and this Trackpad is the next best thing to the proverbial sliced bread!!) Its zooming capabilities are phenomenal but not with the more usual "Control+swipe" feature: I use that for those apps and features that do not respond to the Trackpad gestures and do remember that not all apps will respond how you might want them to. It is extremely accurate, you can put it on the desk where it is comfortable for you, if you go walk around with a laptop, you can use the built-in jobber with consummate ease BUT DO make sure you have a decent supply of batteries for the outboard model as it can eat through them quite quickly at times. Now that my Magic Mouse is finally defunct, I am FORCED to use this Trackpad properly(?) and it performs - like Magic.
    Now then, Apple: what I NEED next is a facility to move the Tool Tips from being covered up by the Cursor and a facility to chance the background color from stark white to my choice.

    Intuitive

    • Written by from PERRIS

    I bought a Mac mini a week ago. Along with it, I also bought the magic trackpad. It's so much better to use than the mouse. Web browsing is a breeze. Magnifying web pages, pictures documents is a snap much like an iPhone which I also have. No glitch at all. Very smooth scrolling. My Mac mini is not even in direct line with the trackpad and it still works flawlessly.

    The Solution

    • Written by from Gaithersburg

    When my Macbook Pro died, this trackpad made the decision to getting an iMac a whole lot easier. I do graphic design in Photoshop, film editing in FCP, and drafting in AutoCad. No standard mouse works nearly as well at conveying my thoughts than a trackpad, allowing my fingers to naturally do the work. I'm glad Apple brought this equipment to the desktop realm.

    As for the reviews about poor shape, I have no complaint there. If anything, this design is more comfortable than a flat design would be because it matches the slope of the keyboard. This requires less repetitive wrist motion when switching between the two. Probably better for you than the alternative.

    My only two minor complaints is that the 4 rubber grip pads have so littler surface area that a little bit of dust on a smooth desktop makes it incredibly hard to keep the trackpad in one place. Also, about once a week the bluetooth connection will suddenly drop and reestablish a moment later. Battery life is good, and other devices stay connected, so the cause is unknown. But neither of these complaints warrant anything less than 5 stars. Great job Apple.

    Better than a mouse

    I like this product. It is much easier to do gestures on a trackpad than on a mouse. I think this is a great buy.

    MUST HAVE

    • Written by from Ooltewah

    The magic track pad,in my opinion, is not a mouse alternative. A mouse, is a lousy alternative to the magic track pad. It is a must have for anyone that has an iMac, Mac Mini, or Mac Pro running 10.7 Lion, actually any operating system. Its extremely responsive and the mutitouch gestures make Lion SOOO easy to navigate, especially if you like me and have multiple full screen apps or multiple pages. Its large and ergonomic so you don't find yourself hurting after hours of use and its great for tight spaces. I will end by saying BUY IT, i promise you won't regret it!

    APPLE? Come on, Show a featured TRACKPAD video!

    • Written by from Columbia Heights

    Yes, right on the first page without looking in strange places.
    The TRACKPAD isn't featured on the first page of Mac Options list.
    I had to search for trackpad.

    Those of us that do have it, if you go to preferences, there is a fully featured
    gesture function for every option. Any Apple Store will have one out to play with.

    I don't know why some think it's not the same function as MBP's track pad, but it is.

    What's with the wrist pain factor some claim or speculate?
    You don't type with it, it navigates, runs video forward/reverse with 2 figure swipe
    as fast as wanted.

    Sit up, so hand is lower than elbow, or adjust table/desk/chair to perfection.
    It's almost the year 2000, lets Go.

    If you want the pad level, put a rubber pad under it, or half of plain muffin works.

    You have to get the bluetooth keyboard as well that matches it.
    Of all the cool stuff to have, these two are hands down the best money invested.
    What you are forgetting, is now the laptop stays clean, with zoom, it can be viewed 6 feet away.

    Cannot live without

    • Written by from Calgary

    I bought this track pad to take advantage of lion but I did not know I would be lost without it. This is a total replacement for the mouse.

    Apple has really innovated when it comes to this device. I would go as far as saying I starting to lose my skills with a mouse.

    Buy one you will not be disappointed if anything you will be enlightened.
