Is there any feedback as to how usable the Magic Trackpad is for people with handicaps that make finger control difficult (in my case, Parkinson's)?

    Hello, I hope this helps you in making your decision regarding the Magic Trackpad and the extent to which an individual with a handicap could fully use it.

    About 8 months ago, I had my pointer finger cut-off and subsequently, re-attached.

    It was also a "Twist" trauma, which means that my finger does not (and probably never will) be able to be straight along with my other fingers.

    As a result, I now struggle with severe arthritis in that finger with ongoing nerve pain throughout the hand.

    As a student, I HAVE to use a mouse. I had to put up with the constant pain of using a mouse until the Magic Trackpad came to stores.

    Since then, my hand and more specifically, my finger no longer experience the same fatigue and strain after hours spent using a regular mouse.

    In sum: I would absolutely recommend this product, as this has a much easier and organic function.
