    Sleek and Convenient

    • Written by from Conyers

    Works like a charm! It is very convenient not to have any chords to worry about. The build is solid, and it feels great. Very easy to use. You don't have to worry about moving a mouse and running out of room.

    Great product. But on/off button too exposed

    • Written by from St remy blanzy

    The trackpad is beautiful and wonderful. I use it with my MacBook Pro when I'm working in cafes. But as soon as I stuff it in my backpack it tends to turn on on its own. So when I throw and turn on my laptop on the bed, I have to fetch the trackpad in my backpack to turn it off again... because the macbook still thinks it should link to it since it's on!

    Good functionality but terrible ergonomics

    • Written by from New York

    I have a new iMac that's less than a month old. I ordered it with a Magic Trackpad instead of the Magic Mouse and although I initially liked the trackpad, I have developed wrist pain from the odd angle at which one must hold the hand (the hand has to be tilted up vs. the forearm in an unnatural angle in order to use the trackpad). I hope I can exchange this for a Magic Mouse; otherwise, I'm going to be out another $69 to buy a Magic Mouse outright.

    Terrible longevity

    • Written by from Edinburgh

    The very common problem of random clicking happened to my 14 months after purchase (2 months outside warranty). Apple indeed got their 12-month warranty window very precise.

    Love my track pad

    • Written by from Fishers

    Works just like the track pad on my macbook. All the gestures are supported, way better than the magic mouse.

    Almost 5 years and no complaints!

    • Written by from Chesterton

    I purchased this back in '11 and have had no problems whatsoever. If you use your mouse a lot (editing in Logic, etc), then a track pad is definitely worth owning. It allows you to set different preferences regarding work flow, and it helps a lot that it is angled. Replacing the batteries is not a hassle at all. I recommend this product for any MAC user that is tired of dragging a mouse around!

    It is magical

    • Written by from Sahuarita

    I have always loved the trackpad of my macbook, so when i bought my 4K monitor to get as close to retina as possible with an external monitor, I told myself, let me try the external trackpad. I am getting tired of using a mouse on the desktop.

    Well, I received it yesterday, put the batteries in, turn it on, and voilà! It works like magic!

    great for arthritis !!!!!!!!!!

    • Written by from fleetwood

    HI , iam partly disabled and also have fibromyalgia !!! i find the track pad very easy to use , I've never had any problem with it , i find being able to lightly drag my finger over it much more better than a mouse , and less painful , i also have the wireless keyboard and also with this I've had no issues ,the only problem is its made from a metal that I'm allergic to ,but I've solved this problem by putting it inside a clear thin plastic A4 paper holder and taped it up so it protects my allergy with the metal ,and works great , so as for the batteries , i don't have the problems like others report of full batteries going flat very fast nor do i have any problems with opening the cover ,so if you have arthritis ,i recommend this product , much less pain , THANKS APPLE

    having to manually shut off wireless to save battery not convenient.

    • Written by from Toronto

    I've either missed an update to save power on battery life for the wireless consoles or, I believe they urgently need an improved update. I've been using a wireless keyboard and trackpad with my Macbook Pro close to two years now, and have no complaints about their versatility, but there's really no comparison with the longevity of it's battery life when manually switching off the device with the button located on it's sides or letting your wireless shut down automatically after a certain time of inactivity. I know on this forum its mentioned the wireless update for these mentioned products should already save power automatically but am failing to see the end results, that is why I said I might have missed an update.

    Don't let any bad review fool you. You won't look back!

    • Written by from Wandana Heights

    Okay, once you decide you want one of these and once you've stopped thinking about the price. GET IT. I've had mine for 4 years and its still perfect. There are some reviews that might mislead you to think it doesn't pair properly or the battery drains quick. Neither is true and is mostly likely related to their technical understanding of the technology. The batteries only need replacing every 4 months or so... I honestly can never remember how often since its usually a long time between renewals. I don't even use expensive or fancy brands. Just cheap batteries, its perfect. Also for those who didn't realise - you can actually even switch to just 'tapping' instead of clicking on a trackpad like on a laptop (or MacBook)... meaning you don't even need to worry about clicking! just tap!. Its makes my usage of navigating my screen so much quicker. Its less mess than a mouse too, its prettier and having the ability to expand and double tap to expand things makes every so much easier. Just get one already. Please, for your own sake. Just do it.

    Did not work

    • Written by from dublin 8

    I spent ages trying to get the trackpad to work, I bought a wireless keyboard at the same time, the keyboard I am using right now, the track pad worked erratically, none of the gestures worked, nor could I scroll using it. I spent ages looking in forums, help menus etc, nothing worked. I could not get through to any support with apple so gave up and have posted it back. Total waste of time. Guess I'll need to try a mouse instead!

    Makes life so easy!

    • Written by from Bradenton

    I love this piece! I am a fashion designer and music producer DJ. This combined with the bluetooth keyboard make a killer difference in my home studio and pro studio. Assigned Tap to Click and life is just a breeze. I hook up my MacBook Pro to a projector and in group sessions I can fly around the screen and edit so easily.

    Terrific

    • Written by from Bampton

    Just bought this Trackpad to complement my iMac Retina.

    The 27 inch iMac screen is big and wonderful. I was struggling to get the Mouse to move far/fast enough. This device solves that problem. You need to get over the idea of clicking everywhere. Simple tapping does most of it.

    Things to watch. Setting it up is easy, but the light on the Trackpad is microscopic so it's not easy to see what's going on as a device links to the iMac for the first time.

    Likewise it's not intuitively obvious what you need to do to eg select groups of files and drag them somewhere. You sometimes end up using two hands, or at least I do. The video with the trackpad is not exactly helpful on the wide range of practical tasks you need to perform doing normal work when you are used to the mouse approach. Still, playing with it gets you there.

    All in all, an outstanding piece of kit. You won't look back.

    Fantastic mouse replacement

    • Written by from Rickmansworth

    I've always liked trackpads but the ones on most laptops are too small. The new MacBooks have larger ones, and inspired by how easy it is to use those, I picked up this one for use when my MacBook Air is connected to an external monitor and keyboard. It's just great, the huge surface area makes it easy to move the mouse almost anywhere on the screen without having to constantly raise the finger and reposition. I have it set on touch to click, never have liked physically clicking a button, and it works perfectly. To right-click it is best to position your fingers a little way apart. Scrolling is just so easy and natural. I only wish someone would make something similar for my work Windows machine! (Windows doesn't support it very well.)

    Skeptical because of bad reviews but very impressed

    • Written by from LONG BEACH

    I had read some nasty reviews about the Magic Trackpad but decided to give it a try anyway. It works great and is very comfortable to use. I also purchased the Apple Rechargeable Batteries (awesome purchase as well) because I read that the Magic Trackpad drains down batteries like crazy. So far I have been using it for 2 weeks and it still shows over 85% battery life. At this rate, the two batteries inside it should last about 12 weeks before being changed which is more than acceptable.

    How did I get along without it?

    • Written by from Seattle

    Today I bought an Apple Magic Trackpad. I had been using an HP mouse and it works great, but the Magic Trackpad is so much better! I'll have to get accustomed to the various gestures, there's a bunch of them, but this thing is so much more integrated into OS X and makes everything so much easier. Thank you, Apple!

    Less intense for the hand

    • Written by from Auckland

    I bought this to replace a mouse because of RSI issues. It's not an end all, but it's so much more natural for my hand to use a trackpad than a mouse! I find it much softer, and much more comfortable. It looks great, and I love the bluetooth wireless nature of it. Hookup is impossibly easy. Also I if I'm reading documents etc I can just pick it up, but it on my lap and scroll from there. I hesitated with the $102 CAD price tag after tax, but it's absolutely worth it.

    Nicely made but again Bluetooth is weak.

    • Written by from Erinsville

    I bought this from a reseller to use on my Home Theatre 2014 Mac Mini. It paired just fine but lags and disconnects every time I go to use it. I'm only using it 12 feet from the Mini but it's so awful and frustrating it's useless. A true wireless version would be better. Bluetooth has NEVER been much good unless you're sitting on top of the unit you want to control .
