    I have been contemplating buying the magic trackpad for almost a year now. I've put it off because I really don't need it, its an expensive luxury for my macbook. However, after Lion came out I was disappointed that my black 08 macbook did not support all the gestures, therefore, I had to get the trackpad. I've got to say, I've been missing out! This little thing is amazingly thin, very responsive, and feels cool using all the gestures. Why oh why have I put this off for so long? I will never use another mouse again! Great job Apple, keep up the great work.

    Great Invention!!

    • Written by from Dumfries

    My family have several Macs and just one of them has the Magic Trackpad and I wish all of them would. Once you get used to this marvel returning to a regular mouse or even to the Magic Mouse is never the same. Besides that if you're working late at night the pad allows you to do it quietly instead of making noise tapping your pad as you do with the mouse. Best investment. I love it...

    Who knew! this is awesome

    • Written by from North Richland Hills

    It's huge, not just it's surface and not in a bad way, but it just made my mac mini feel young again. Don't try Lion with out one. It is a different OS with than without.

    this thing is WAY better than magic mouse. You cannot leave without it once you start to use.

    Don't be deterred by the concept, it's a wonderful product!

    • Written by from Carlisle

    I was hesitant to purchase a Magic Trackpad because I already had a Magic mouse, but for those of you who have a Magic Mouse, multitouch is second nature to said mouse (and with Lion [I have a dev. preview], it makes for a better experience to have a logical method of multitouch input). So I hustled on down to the Apple store and picked up a Magic Trackpad as well as the battery charger for my keyboard, Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad. I have to say, I have yet to be let down! The clicking actions feel thick and smooth, and tracking is a breeze with such a large surface. My only complaint is that if you go from using this to, say, a MacBook Pro's trackpad, you will notice your finger drag off the specified surface. Otherwise, highly recommend for anyone with intensive mouse use due to the ergonomically correct design of the Magic Trackpad.

    Even more coming -- product great now

    • Written by from Brocton

    Wow. I've been a PC user my whole life. I loved PC's but after I went to Buffalo's mac store, picked up an iMac, started using the Magic Trackpad and compared the two? WOW. This pad makes doing three things at once seem easy -- because it is! With the new update coming out soon more is coming. If you're worried about how this will compare to your beloved old mouse, you're wasting precious time using this product.

    Better than Trackball

    • Written by from Reading

    After using this Trackpad for many months, I have finally decided to give my review on this product. This is an excellent upgrade from your standard mouse for the Mac OS and will get even better when Lion is released. While I have used all of Apple's mice in the past and also trackballs for Kensington, I feel this is far better.
    I have used this in Illustrator as well as Photoshop, also Aperture and find I have great control within the programs. Love this and would recommend it to anyone.

    Typical Apple product: easy to set up (my 4th grader un-boxed it,read the instructions and had it working in 3 minutes) and it just works. Wonder why it took me this long to upgrade. One minor issue, I've found my wrist hurts after extensive use, but I've found simply using the other hand works well. The ergonomics of a Mighty Mouse versus the Trackpad is not better or worse, just different. Nice to rid myself of the the mouse pad. Very pleased yet another fabulous product.

    Hooray for the Magic Trackpad!
    It gets better the more I use it. Simple, fast, no hassles. Forget the mouse....
    Great for my MacBook Pro and iPad.

    One word "AWESOME"

    • Written by from Gulfport

    I've been a Mac user for quite a while now and always thought that the Trackpad would be similar to my PC laptop at work, so I have been hesitant to give up my Magic Mouse for a Trackpad. A friend of mine said "You HAVE to get one, they are AWESOME." So I bought one, and yes, it is AWESOME. Scrolling, pinch&zoom, page back/forward, show desktop, this thing does it all. Magic Mouse has been retired! Oh BTW, my wife doesn't yell at me any any more "STOP THAT CLICKING!!!"

    That track pad is the Nuts for iOS developer

    • Written by from Quebec

    So many tricks you can do with the trackpad and xCode, swipe left, swipe right, 3 fingers up, down, 4 fingers up, down... double click, everything is supported !!

    But when holding a file and sliding it somewhere in the screen, it is a little bit more complicated, but otherwise, it's the nuts :)

    No contest!

    • Written by from North Saint Paul

    I had the magic mouse and wasn't comfortable with how fast the battery got spent or lack of left click options... so got the trackpad and WHALA! This is an amazing product that I will have a hard time ever going to anything else. Battery life is great and with the two finger taps... I have everything I want. Set on just a slight touch I am able to go much faster in games than any mouse user. Great job Apple!

    Was switching internet usage and the tech was flabbergasted at this product. No doubt he and his partner will be more trackpad users.

    I cant wait to see Apples next great idea!

    You can have my trackpad when you pry my cold, dead fingers from it. It works great and only took a couple of hours to get used to. Just note that it's very sensitive so a carelessly dragged finger can do things you don't want it to do. One thing it does do that the directions don't say is that three finger swipe up or down takes you to the top or bottom of the page. Scroll bars are so 20th century.

    WOW. Couldn't be easier.

    • Written by from Evergreen Park

    I tried one of these babies at an Apple store and knew I had to have one. When I ordered my new Mac shortly thereafter, I got a Magic Trackpad with it. Wow. I had the basic functions down in a few minutes; I don't know where the "monster learning curve" review came from, but this couldn't be easier. What's even better is, no sore wrist after a couple hours of heavy-duty computer use. I'm very happy with this, to the point where my PC-user friends are seething with jealousy. Thanks, Apple, for another fantastic design.

    Apple tops the Magic Mouse + some.

    • Written by from provo

    I first got the Magic Mouse when it came out, and I thought Apple could not beat what they did. But wait... one more thing!! Its Apple.

    The MTP took me some time to get used to, but once I did, I have not even touched my magic mouse since. its so easy to use, and once you get used to the TONS of gestures that you can do it makes it even more useful. I sync it with my MacBook Pro at work with my Duel monitors. Unreal how easy it is to use.

    con. like i said it does take some getting used to if you don't use one on your laptop, and your wrist might get stiff or soar, but that goes away after like the first day! I love my MTP.

    Worth the pain.

    • Written by from Pittsfield

    A monster learning curve and not even slightly user friendly. Quitting smoking may be easier than getting 100% adept at using the MT.

    It is obvious why many users just go back to the mouse. Life is too short and there are more important things to get done before it's over.

    BUT! If you stick with it, you'll grow to love the thing and your days of the mouse are over.

    Trackpad review

    • Written by from Sheboygan

    I just got my trackpad today and was easy to set up. WOW, what an amazing toy. I love what all the gestures do, you can switch between windows, make print bigger or smaller and much more. Goodbye mouse. Hello new and improved technology.
