    Wonderful x 5

    • Written by from San Jose

    Thank you for creating this trackpad, Apple folks.

    It works for me.

    Really accurate, easy to use, also my fingers and wrist are pain-free when I use it.

    You can do everything you do with mouse, with comfort. It's faster than mouse.

    Good job.

    Really tired of mouse

    • Written by from Tampa

    I'm biased I guess? There seem to be a few quirks with this, but I might just need to tweak the settings, there's a lot of them! I like being able to use up to 4 fingers for various functions, and most of all I like getting rid of the mouse. Moving the mouse all over the desktop, it just gets old, this is a welcome new paradigm. So I'm in the honeymoon phase, take this review with a grain of salt, maybe check back in a couple weeks or months. But so far between this and apple's wireless keyboard and my iMac, my computer setup is looking really sexy! (that's what it's all about right?) But seriously, it's silky smooth, no moving parts. I do like aesthetics, and it really scores in the department, but I like functionality too, and I think it scores there as well. Plenty of gestures that are not hard to master.

    I am in love with my new magic trackpad. Never again do I have to be frustrated that the stupid scroll ball does not work! YAY!

    Great addition

    • Written by from Lake bluff

    This product gets 5 stars first for simply providing the alternative to a mouse that has been much needed.

    I combined this with the wireless keyboard so my MBPro could sit up on a stand on my desk for times when i'm stationary and don't want to be hunched over the laptop for hours on end. The two of these products make it so much more comfortable to work at my desk not to mention the Trackpad is larger than the standard MB pads which is certainly a plus.

    All in all, this is by no means a necessity but depending on one's setup it can certainly improve the general flow. Plus it was beyond easy to set up right out of the box...like all good Apple products.

    Cheers

    Extraordinary!!

    • Written by from Pottstown

    I absolutely love my Magic Trackpad. I never use my Mighty Mouse anymore.

    There's just so much practical and intuitive functionality built in - it's just an amazing tool. Leave to Apple..

    If you're considering getting one, you shouldn't worry.

    What mouse?

    • Written by from Bentley

    With the coming of the next major release of the Mac OS Lion you can see the importance of needing a trackpad type of device for an iMac system.
    The trackpad takes some getting used to but after a day or two of trial and error you're using it without even realizing it. It works flawlessly and simply just like any other Apple product.
    The only improvement I would make is to have a way of accessing the Dashboard through a gesture, but that alone is not a reason to give it any less than 5 stars.

    Mice are so 2010!

    • Written by from Webster

    Since the trackpad has been out, it is basically all I have used. I loved it so much, I got one for a coworker in our marketing department, who wore a wrap for carpal tunnel. She no longer has too, and uses the trackpad almost exclusively. Count this review as two 5 stars.

    Very smooth and tons of features

    • Written by from Colorado Springs

    Now I have multi-touch on a circa 2007 MacBook Pro! My old MacBook Pro didn't have multi-touch and the trackpad has been hard to use because it is smoothed out from years of use. MagicPrefs give even more muti-touch gestures (Expose Current Application and Dashboard are my favorite). Very ergonomic compared to using the trackpad on the old MacBook Pro and even better than a trackball. Bluetooth wireless is great. Tap to click is not to sensitive but I had to check 'Ignore accidental trackpad input' so my thumbs wouldn't move the cursor when I'm typing. To expose this setting, turn off the Magic Trackpad and go into Trackpad settings. Everything jolly after that.

    Pure Excellence!

    • Written by from Granbury

    I used an Alps track pad instead of a mouse back in the mic 90's and have always had one on the laptop that my employer provides. When I bought my wife a MacBook, I realized how much I would love having one on my Mac Pro. I have always used a mouse on my Macs and am so glad that I got the Magic Trackpad. The large surface makes gestures easy to perform, the angle and height match my Apple keyboard, and the click/tap options are great. I would recommend this to anybody who enjoys trackpads. I may never go back to a mouse.

    Super upgrade

    • Written by from Limestone

    I just got my Trackpad and, although I am just getting used to it, I am very pleased. I like the idea of no trackball to have to clean and the ability to perform different functions with the finger movements. I removed my mouse so that I would learn to use the trackpad without the temptation of using the mouse. I am already getting the hang of it. Great product!

    A lot better then any mouse

    • Written by from Stoney Creek

    I find I can do things faster and the trackpad can do multiple things that a mouse can't. Not only that my wrist feels better using this device then the mouse and it is very easy to keep clean.

    Really worth the purchase

    • Written by from Meise

    This product is one of the few touchpads on the market that actually work. The bluetooth connection works perfectly and you don't feel any difference with the built-in touchpad. Only one thought: why not make 4-finger gestures possibile?

    all in all, great product, works the way you want it to work.

    Happy User

    • Written by from Fond du Lac

    I have owned the Magic Trackpad for 5 days now. I can't see myself returning to use the Magic Mouse again. There is so much more flexibility to using the pad. I had not expected that. It is easy to set up, very easy to get used to. The most helpful information provided with the pad is actually the back of the box. There you will find 12 diagrams which illustrate the motions necessary to operate the features of the pad. Much easier to follow/understand than the written instructions found in the documentation booklet provided. I have a copy of those illustrations in front of me as I learn to use this tool.
    I am just sorry that I waited so long to go to the pad. I don't usually write product reviews, but this device just reenforces the reason why I buy the innovations of Apple Computer.

    "WOW"

    • Written by from Murrieta

    I just picked this up today, very cool. No more scrubbing the mighty mouse rollerball on a sheet of paper to get it to work. Looks nice on my desk. Mighty mouse went straight to the old mac box collection in the garage. I wish I wouldn't have waited so long, for the money this is a no brainer.
