    Mice are so 2010!

    • Written by from Webster

    Since the trackpad has been out, it is basically all I have used. I loved it so much, I got one for a coworker in our marketing department, who wore a wrap for carpal tunnel. She no longer has too, and uses the trackpad almost exclusively. Count this review as two 5 stars.

    Very smooth and tons of features

    • Written by from Colorado Springs

    Now I have multi-touch on a circa 2007 MacBook Pro! My old MacBook Pro didn't have multi-touch and the trackpad has been hard to use because it is smoothed out from years of use. MagicPrefs give even more muti-touch gestures (Expose Current Application and Dashboard are my favorite). Very ergonomic compared to using the trackpad on the old MacBook Pro and even better than a trackball. Bluetooth wireless is great. Tap to click is not to sensitive but I had to check 'Ignore accidental trackpad input' so my thumbs wouldn't move the cursor when I'm typing. To expose this setting, turn off the Magic Trackpad and go into Trackpad settings. Everything jolly after that.

    Pure Excellence!

    • Written by from Granbury

    I used an Alps track pad instead of a mouse back in the mic 90's and have always had one on the laptop that my employer provides. When I bought my wife a MacBook, I realized how much I would love having one on my Mac Pro. I have always used a mouse on my Macs and am so glad that I got the Magic Trackpad. The large surface makes gestures easy to perform, the angle and height match my Apple keyboard, and the click/tap options are great. I would recommend this to anybody who enjoys trackpads. I may never go back to a mouse.

    Super upgrade

    • Written by from Limestone

    I just got my Trackpad and, although I am just getting used to it, I am very pleased. I like the idea of no trackball to have to clean and the ability to perform different functions with the finger movements. I removed my mouse so that I would learn to use the trackpad without the temptation of using the mouse. I am already getting the hang of it. Great product!

    A lot better then any mouse

    • Written by from Stoney Creek

    I find I can do things faster and the trackpad can do multiple things that a mouse can't. Not only that my wrist feels better using this device then the mouse and it is very easy to keep clean.

    Really worth the purchase

    • Written by from Meise

    This product is one of the few touchpads on the market that actually work. The bluetooth connection works perfectly and you don't feel any difference with the built-in touchpad. Only one thought: why not make 4-finger gestures possibile?

    all in all, great product, works the way you want it to work.

    Happy User

    • Written by from Fond du Lac

    I have owned the Magic Trackpad for 5 days now. I can't see myself returning to use the Magic Mouse again. There is so much more flexibility to using the pad. I had not expected that. It is easy to set up, very easy to get used to. The most helpful information provided with the pad is actually the back of the box. There you will find 12 diagrams which illustrate the motions necessary to operate the features of the pad. Much easier to follow/understand than the written instructions found in the documentation booklet provided. I have a copy of those illustrations in front of me as I learn to use this tool.
    I am just sorry that I waited so long to go to the pad. I don't usually write product reviews, but this device just reenforces the reason why I buy the innovations of Apple Computer.

    "WOW"

    • Written by from Murrieta

    I just picked this up today, very cool. No more scrubbing the mighty mouse rollerball on a sheet of paper to get it to work. Looks nice on my desk. Mighty mouse went straight to the old mac box collection in the garage. I wish I wouldn't have waited so long, for the money this is a no brainer.

    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.

    Just bought one. Ignore the critics. They're wrong. This thing is amazing. It's perfect. There is no carpel tunnel issue. There is no hesitation connection issue. I love it. I absolutely love it. If you're thinking about it, just buy the thing.

    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.
