    I spotted this today in an Apple Premium Reseller store and grabbed the last one they had.

    I've had the trackpad since launch a I spotted this today in an Apple Premium Reseller store and grabbed the last one they had.

    I've had the trackpad since launch and only just moved to the wireless keyboard. Using the two devices separately has always been a bind especially when changing my seated position.

    This fixes that problem vey simply.

    It's a bit expensive for a piece of plastic, but it has to be plastic so as not to block the Bluetooth signals.

    Both devices snap into it positively and there are a couple of separators that slot in between the two devices to stop them grinding together. These grip the edges of the keyboard and trackpad tightly and won't fall out.

    It has four long rubber feet which grip the desk as good as the original feet which are now hidden.

    I thought it might have been a bit flimsy but the keyboard and trackpad feel like one solid unit now.


    Love it.

    This morning I have just received my Twelve South MagicWand and I must say that I am very pleased with it. It is very durable and This morning I have just received my Twelve South MagicWand and I must say that I am very pleased with it. It is very durable and the simple idea of keeping your Keyboard and Track Pad together is fantastic. The fit together is very easy and tidy and makes having both together easy. Also, been as I have this on my lap it is now wider so that it fits on my lap better than just the small keyboard when it was on its own.

    There are a few things to note though although they are small and should not put you off to be honest but I will mention them either way...
    Firstly, and maybe this is just me not being clever at what I am doing, but the 'H Bar' was very difficult to put in and I had to spend some time fitting it in and although I don't get through my batteries a lot, when changing them, this may be an awkward experience every time.
    Secondly, The keyboard now is off to the right (or left, if your right handed), though there is nothing you or the company can do about this, you may take a while getting used to laying your arms over a bit more, but you can get used to this!!
    And lastly, and this is only if you use this on your lap, you have no way of using the clic button on the Track Pad, simply because you need a hard surface, i.e. desk, to utilise the clic method. However, over the years Apple have integrated ways for you to not have to use a clic, such as 'three finger' scrolling to resize the window or mover a window around. I am sure there is a way to do other things without using the clic, over time I have found ways not to use it at all.

    Please don't let what I said above put you off because they are in my opinion very very small things, but I wanted to mention them to give a fair review. Otherwise, this product is amazing, like others said, it is very very durable, even if it's plastic, it's a simple concept to utilise the two devices together and (Simplifies life). (Maybe they should use that as their motto).

    Really impressed by this simple piece of kit. Save me having to pace my track pad on a hard service to work it easily.

    Down sides. Ridiculous amount of packaging for such a small item. Also? By the time you add p&p on to the cost is it really worth £30? Bit of a premium price for what it actually is.

    The wand couples together the keyboard and magic trackpad (obviously). However, in doing so they become a single unit. This means The wand couples together the keyboard and magic trackpad (obviously). However, in doing so they become a single unit. This means when pressing down on the keyboard to type or on the return key, the trackpad can be inadvertently clicked, moving the point at which you want to be typing. This is beyond annoying. Received and returned in the same day.

    The customer service from Twelve South is fantastic also, having lost a part of the kit one email to their customer services and they sent two spare pieces out to me for free!

    well recommended!
