Product Information

  • More control at your fingertips.

    Magic Trackpad gives you a whole new way to control what’s on your Mac desktop computer. When you perform gestures, you actually interact with what’s on your screen. You feel closer to your content, and moving around feels completely natural. Swiping through pages on screen is just like flipping through pages in a magazine, and inertial scrolling senses the momentum in your fingers as you move up and down a page.

    More to touch, more to love.

    Your fingers will fall for the Magic Trackpad. It’s made with smooth, wear-resistant glass that feels great to the touch. And it’s nearly 80 percent larger than the built-in trackpad on the MacBook Pro, giving you plenty of room to perform gestures. Because the entire surface of Magic Trackpad is a button, you can click on objects just as you would using a traditional mouse. And Magic Trackpad sits at the same height and angle as the Apple Wireless Keyboard, so you can go from trackpad to keyboard in one seamless motion.

    Bluetooth technology.

    Magic Trackpad connects to your Mac via Bluetooth wireless technology. Use it in conjunction with the Apple Wireless Keyboard for a cable-free, uncluttered workspace. And if you feel like venturing away from your desk, Magic Trackpad maintains a reliable and secure connection up to 33 feet away from your Mac.

I use my Mac Mini hooked to a 42" HDTV, so using a mouse from the couch is pretty terrible. Even nice mice like the magic mouse have trouble tracking unless I use a lap desk and mouse pad, which isn't the most comfortable solution. With this, I can surf in comfort and give all of my iMac-using buddies Mac envy!

    Besides, with all of the multitouch gestures on the pad, this is the most versatile pointing device Apple makes! Here's hoping they make an iOS-based Apple TV and then make the touchpad a gaming controller too!

This is a great addition to my bluetooth keyboard & compliments my Waycom pad for photo work. I'm not sure if it's really 'worth' the upgrade over the magic mouse, but it is nice to have such a large gesture-based surface, much like the iPad. Props to Apple for thinking outside the box on this one, although the possibility & 'idea' of this technology could have happened a few years ago.

I've had an editing keyboard for some time that is suspended from the desk just above my knees but I had to reach up the the MBP to use the trackpad. This Magic Trackpad is the gadget I've been asking Apple for!

    Okay, once you decide you want one of these and once you've stopped thinking about the price. GET IT. I've had mine for 4 years an Okay, once you decide you want one of these and once you've stopped thinking about the price. GET IT. I've had mine for 4 years and its still perfect. There are some reviews that might mislead you to think it doesn't pair properly or the battery drains quick. Neither is true and is mostly likely related to their technical understanding of the technology. The batteries only need replacing every 4 months or so... I honestly can never remember how often since its usually a long time between renewals. I don't even use expensive or fancy brands. Just cheap batteries, its perfect. Also for those who didn't realise - you can actually even switch to just 'tapping' instead of clicking on a trackpad like on a laptop (or MacBook)... meaning you don't even need to worry about clicking! just tap!. Its makes my usage of navigating my screen so much quicker. Its less mess than a mouse too, its prettier and having the ability to expand and double tap to expand things makes every so much easier. Just get one already. Please, for your own sake. Just do it.

I am a fashion designer and music producer DJ. This combined with the bluetooth keyboard make a killer difference in my home studio and pro studio. Assigned Tap to Click and life is just a breeze. I hook up my MacBook Pro to a projector and in group sessions I can fly around the screen and edit so easily.

It works great and is very comfortable I had read some nasty reviews about the Magic Trackpad but decided to give it a try anyway. It works great and is very comfortable to use. I also purchased the Apple Rechargeable Batteries (awesome purchase as well) because I read that the Magic Trackpad drains down batteries like crazy. So far I have been using it for 2 weeks and it still shows over 85% battery life. At this rate, the two batteries inside it should last about 12 weeks before being changed which is more than acceptable.
