  • On a Mac their is virtually no limit to the number of pointing devices that can be connected, but what is the point? There is only cursor on the screen so there is no way for multiple users to interact with the machine. (This support is mainly there for laptops, where people often connect an external mouse, or schools where assistive technology devices often remain connected)

  • You may observe that the trackpad is bluetooth device. Each trackpad that you intend to connect should be in the vicinity of the computer and max 30 feet away approx. Now it is dependent on the Bluetooth adapter you since you can connect limited Bluetooth devices to one particular bluetooth adapter. I think you may need separate Bluetooth adapter for each trackpad that you wanna use. You should check the limitation since it's decided by the kind of Bluetooth adapter on each individual computer.
