    Love it - won't use a mouse again

    • Written by from Woonsocket

    Dear Apple - please don't ever discontinue this product!

    I don't have any of the wrist strain that I used to have from using a standard mouse. Sure the magic mouse helped – and I bought that too – but the trackpad takes it to the next level. I don't have to slide and click and lift and slide, etc. I went as far as enabling tap to click, which completely eliminates strain from clicking the surface.

    The gestures are also great and though I wish I could natively customize them a bit more, what you get out of the box is still pretty versatile.

    Great for limited area

    • Written by from Lincoln

    This mouse pad works great, no errors, good gesture recognition, the only problem is being used to a normal mouse. I would recommend this for anyone who doesn't have enough area for the magic mouse.

    Great

    Much better than the magic mouse. Being a Windows/Linux user the mousing of my iMac threw me off big time. The track pad has made mousing much easier and enjoyable.

    Bring on the multitouch

    • Written by from Oxford

    When I bought the Magic Mouse over a year ago, I thought I'd never need another desktop control peripheral again. I just received my Magic Trackpad in the mail last night and I'm already in love. The fact that the thing is so large is a huge plus. It uses all of the same functionality of the trackpads of the MacBook line, but wirelessly and in a larger size. As someone with larger hands, this makes multitouch gestures so much easier than on a MacBook's smaller trackpad. That being said, the Magic Trackpad really is the future of user-computer interface. With the release of OX Lion coming sometime this summer, multi-touch is becoming one of most important aspects of interface Apple will be focussing on with all they've learned with iPad and iPhone. Having tested Lion with a basic MacBook trackpad, I can tell that using the Magic Trackpad will be the ONLY way to go with OSX Lion.

    The End of the Mouse

    • Written by from New York

    This is so much easier to navigate than a mouse. No picking it up and putting it down, and if you have a macbook and are familiar with the multitouch tools, this just allows you to continue that on the iMac. Makes navigating and stylish!

    awesome

    • Written by from Louisville

    I thought the Magic Mouse was awesome, making all other mice pathetic, but this magic trackpad is even more awesome, and just makes all the mice seem as obsolete, antiquious novelties of yesteryear.

    I hate the average trackpad on laptops, including my Macbook, but the Magic track pad is the end all be all. Been using the track pad for about an hour, and have disregarded then Magic mouse
    Apple does it again....

    Excellent... after you get used to it.

    • Written by from Miami

    Initially I didn't liked it. It felt strange, but after using is for about two months, and finally understanding how it does its magic, I find that I like it more and more everyday.

    For example: I configured a 5 finger click with BetterTouchTool to activate Divvy an it really helps to improve my workflow.

    Magical indeed - casted a spell on this skeptic

    • Written by from Bellevue

    A few things: I love Apple product, I love computer mice, I never write reviews -- ever.

    But this thing is THAT good. At the very least, try one and return it if you don't like it. I'm a graphic designer and I've had the current unibody Macbook Pro with its large multi-touch trackpad. While it was great, the best laptop trackpad I've ever used, I still found myself preferring a mouse. Needless to say, the concept of putting a Trackpad on my desk to use with my Mac Pro workstation was ludicrous -- or was it?

    I've move to a home office and have a lot of things on my desk. I mainly use a Wacom Cintiq to draw directly onscreen and a wired Intuos 3 to control my 2nd monitor (where I keep my palettes) for a mouse/trackpad-free experience. I use the graphic pens 75-80% of my day. A magic mouse was my pointer of choice for non-design needs.

    I've always had to rearrange my desktop to fit this need and make room for moving my hand around with a mouse. Well no more!! I tried the Magic Trackpad and was instantly hooked. It's simple -- the HUGE size of the trackpad eliminated all my "complaints" about using the Macbook's trackpad. Functionally, they are identical, but in this case, size matters. It's THE best pointing device (besides graphic pens for my art and design) that I've ever used. I've tried them all, btw (nubbs, trackpads, trackballs, mice). Tracking is smooth & ACCURATE. Multi-touch is ACCURATE and easy to use, not to mention nifty.

    PROS:
    • LARGE size
    • Multi-touch gestures & clicking
    • Stationary object on desktop

    CONS:
    • $70, really? Sigh... I am at apple.com after all.

    Excellent!

    I finally broke down and bought the Magic Trackpad and love it! I have been using the Magic Mouse for a while and decided that I would get the Trackpad today and have not been disappointed yet. I have little desk space and this fits perfectly on my desk and allows me to use the same functions that i use on my Mac Air.

    Haven't used a mouse since day one of owning this!

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Instead of trying to conjure up every superlative to describe my absolute adoration for this product, let me tell you that prior to owning my iMac (the 27" 2010 version), I had been a big fan of IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad laptops. This is relevant because I had always hated the trackpads that came with most laptop computers, which had always been one of the most significant reasons that I much preferred the ThinkPad's hallmark Trackpoint "stick" over all other laptops' touch-based pads.

    Having said that, I also loved the Magic Mouse that came with my iMac, but it took less than 15 minutes of playing around with this awesome new Apple gadget until I boxed up my Magic Mouse, which I had gotten to like quite a bit actually. It is just so wonderfully natural and the generous amount of 1-4 finger gestures make it much more versatile - and FUN - than any mouse could ever hope to be. I also love the understated design and the fact that it screams sophistication and beauty at the same time.

    It is also clear that my next notebook will be the 17" MacBook Pro with its large trackpad, as this appropriately named Magic Trackpad is the culmination of years' worth of hard work and experience with touch and gesture based input devices with the various MacBook Pro's (and Air's) as well as the touch screen controlled iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

    If I was forced to come up with one issue that I didn't like about it, I would have to say "Sorry, I guess you'll have to shoot me, because I really can't". The most I could come up with is the fact that it drains the battery relatively quickly. When I bought this, I also purchased the Apple battery charger, which quickly paid for itself in batteries that I did not need to buy.

    Go get one! I would have paid twice as much for it. ;-)

    Worth Every Penny

    • Written by from Delta

    I recently purchased a new iMac along with the touchpad. I have grown accustomed to the touchpad on my laptops and I thought I would like it. I love it! It responds beautifully and has a huge area for movement. I have hardly used the Magic Mouse since giving this a try. I highly recommend it.
