    Keeps things together perfectly as advertised if you plan on using it in a "couch" scenario. One thing to note is that if you're Keeps things together perfectly as advertised if you plan on using it in a "couch" scenario. One thing to note is that if you're going to use it on a desk (as I do) the vertical "I" bar that attaches the trackpad and keyboard slightly restricts the use of the physical pad click (makes it a bit harder to push down). The solution I found is to install the long "C" clamp without the "I" bar. This still keeps the keyboard neatly together with the trackpad but allows the click feature of the trackpad to "float" and it's physical click feater is unaltered. If you're going to use it in a couch scenario, install it as directed since as you won't be using the physical click but rather tapping on the pad.

    When using on my lap, I would like to "click" the magic trackpad, but alas, the only option it the tap-to-click option in settings When using on my lap, I would like to "click" the magic trackpad, but alas, the only option it the tap-to-click option in settings because there's no hard surface.

    When using on a desk, if you have a heavy typing hand (I only learned of mine after using this product), you will unintentionally click the trackpad when pressing keys near the bottom corner of the keyboard. This can become extremely irritating because the curser will jump around as if you intended to move or it; or it will recognize a double-click and select the text, overwriting already typed words.

    I love the concept of the MagicWand and I think the design is sleek and beautiful. I only wish the usability wasn't hindered in practice. I'm keeping mine, but training myself to use it differently. Some people may not want to bother.

    This morning I was just a normal avid mac user, with crippling Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) due to heavy xcode use as well as us This morning I was just a normal avid mac user, with crippling Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) due to heavy xcode use as well as using my disfigured hand to reach for the '#' key. Now I sit with a shiny new hand, model in tow - all thanks to the MagicWand™. Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin...

    A typical dreary tuesday morning; I clawed myself out of bed. Despite my deformity I am now accustomed to the simple tasks: holding a spoon, drinking latte, typing '#'. Driving past the sole glimmer of hope in my day - the apple store - my eye catches upon it's magnificence. Displayed atop a pedestal in the window out front, it seemed the very shining baton passed down previous knowledge of ergonomics, no, the entire apple race! Entranced, I step into my haven. Not to be sullied by first-time buyers I rush past the confused peasants to reach for what will be my ergonomic rod of the future. Safe in the knowledge after the re-financing of my house so that I can afford such accessorial requisites, I stroll to the store's emissary, indicating my desire to purchase the Twelve South MagicWand™.

    Clutching my prize to enforce high sanitary needs, I hurry back on my abode. Along the way I notice that the uphill climb was strangely downhill. Upon further investigation I became aware of an aura emanating from the Twelve South MagicWand™ - it was warping the very fabric of space-time with it's ergonomic properties! I shed a tear for our lost messiah, Steve Jobs™, whose sacrifice made our lives all the more worthwhile.

    Long story short, leaving you to tread your own path, I now have a comfortable Job™ and a very satisfied wife - all thanks to the Twelve South MagicWand™! Who knows what else you'll be able to mount on future iterations of the Twelve South MagicWand™

    They've actually quietly changed the design. The previous plastic bar and rubber piece to keep the track pad and keyboard flush ha They've actually quietly changed the design. The previous plastic bar and rubber piece to keep the track pad and keyboard flush have been replaced by a single plastic piece. It looks cleaner, and more importantly the trackpad actually clicks unimpeded now.

    For 30 bucks it does what it's supposed to do.

    I knew I am overpaying this ... but I was still hoping to get better material than mere plastic ... this thing costs about $0.30 t I knew I am overpaying this ... but I was still hoping to get better material than mere plastic ... this thing costs about $0.30 to manufacture and I am being generous ...

    the biggest problem is fitting ... there is a plastic divider between keyboard and touch pad ... it's supposed to fill tiny gap between them and make keyboard and touch pad into one unit so to speak, so they don't "hinge" from each other ... but it is too thick and pushes touch pad too far right and so touch pad rubber feet do not fit right into MagicWand grooves ... it does two things ... damages touch pad feet and makes touch pad not fit correctly, popping out a bit ... I took the plastic divider out for proper fit

    I was so on the fence purchasing this item, ended up including it in my cart while buying other items for Christmas, but for the price and lack of attention to detail I do not recommend it at all ...
