Product Information

  • More control at your fingertips.

    Magic Trackpad gives you a whole new way to control what’s on your Mac desktop computer. When you perform gestures, you actually interact with what’s on your screen. You feel closer to your content, and moving around feels completely natural. Swiping through pages on screen is just like flipping through pages in a magazine, and inertial scrolling senses the momentum in your fingers as you move up and down a page.

    More to touch, more to love.

    Your fingers will fall for the Magic Trackpad. It’s made with smooth, wear-resistant glass that feels great to the touch. And it’s nearly 80 percent larger than the built-in trackpad on the MacBook Pro, giving you plenty of room to perform gestures. Because the entire surface of Magic Trackpad is a button, you can click on objects just as you would using a traditional mouse. And Magic Trackpad sits at the same height and angle as the Apple Wireless Keyboard, so you can go from trackpad to keyboard in one seamless motion.

    Bluetooth technology.

    Magic Trackpad connects to your Mac via Bluetooth wireless technology. Use it in conjunction with the Apple Wireless Keyboard for a cable-free, uncluttered workspace. And if you feel like venturing away from your desk, Magic Trackpad maintains a reliable and secure connection up to 33 feet away from your Mac.

I use my Mac Mini hooked to a 42" HDTV, so using a mouse from the couch is pretty terrible. Even nice mice like the magic mouse have trouble tracking unless I use a lap desk and mouse pad, which isn't the most comfortable solution. With this, I can surf in comfort and give all of my iMac-using buddies Mac envy!

    Besides, with all of the multitouch gestures on the pad, this is the most versatile pointing device Apple makes! Here's hoping they make an iOS-based Apple TV and then make the touchpad a gaming controller too!

This is a great addition to my bluetooth keyboard & compliments my Waycom pad for photo work. I'm not sure if it's really 'worth' the upgrade over the magic mouse, but it is nice to have such a large gesture-based surface, much like the iPad. Props to Apple for thinking outside the box on this one, although the possibility & 'idea' of this technology could have happened a few years ago.

I've had an editing keyboard for some time that is suspended from the desk just above my knees but I had to reach up the the MBP to use the trackpad. This Magic Trackpad is the gadget I've been asking Apple for!

  • Great alternative to the mouse

    I was skeptical at first since a mouse is so much easier to use than the trackpad on the MacBookPro.
    But having the trackpad next I was skeptical at first since a mouse is so much easier to use than the trackpad on the MacBookPro.
    But having the trackpad next to my keyboard with it's luxuriously large surface has really turned my thinking around about trackpads.
    I love the gestures available for scrolling, zooming, clicking, etc. I was not really thrilled initially because the click-force is so high but when I enabled the tap feature I use it exclusively.

    I put my magic mouse away and haven't brought it out since.

  • I am replacing them too often

    I have had my iMac for only a couple of years and I am about to go on my third trackpad. While I far prefer the trackpad to the mo I have had my iMac for only a couple of years and I am about to go on my third trackpad. While I far prefer the trackpad to the mouse as far as usability goes, it seems that after several months of use, they quit working. What happens is that they begin sticking or, I guess I don't really know what is going on inside, but the result is that while I am typing a document, it will move to another place in the document. If I am not staring at my work while I am typing, which I am not in the habit of doing, I will look up to find that I have replaced large segments of text. It also highlights portion of text without my permission, causing me to delete them when I strike another key, unaware of what it has done. Or it grabs onto something and won't let go. When I try to move my cursor to another place on the screen, it pulls the entire document with it. At first, it seems that replacing the batteries fixes the problem for awhile but, once it starts doing that, within a few weeks, I find that I am replacing new batteries every couple of hours, and finally even that won't help. At $69 a pop, I would think that my trackpad should last more than a few months. If not for this, I would give the Magic Trackpad four stars, possibly five.

  • Hand pain

    I was initially very excited about my trackpad, but after a few months of intense use my hand starting cramping. I talked it over I was initially very excited about my trackpad, but after a few months of intense use my hand starting cramping. I talked it over with my doctor about what could have caused it and the only thing we could think of was the trackpad. That's enough to get me to go back to a mouse, but the cherry on top was the batteries dying very quickly.

    If your hands don't cramp, or you use it sparingly, then it looks pretty swanky on your desk and works just fine.
