Will two track pads working on two different computers in the same room interfere with each other?

My husband and I would both like to upgrade to the new Lion operating system, but our desktop computer keyboards do not have track pads built into them. If we were to buy two of these new Magic trackpads, would they interfere with each other when we were both using our computers at the same time? (Computers are side by side....)

    Will work fine.

    Once each computer has a trackpad paired to it (pair them one at a time),
    You might consider:
    -Open SysPrefs/Bluetooth
    -click Magic Trackpad in left hand column
    -click on gear icon at bottom of left hand column, select show more info
    -click on gear icon at bottom of left hand column, select Add to Favorites
    -click on gear icon at bottom of left hand column, Rename, change name of Magic Trackpad to something unique for each computer

    This should prevent one computer from stealing the other's Trackpad when its Trackpad batteries die.

    Also, tape a label to the bottom of one.
