    Amazing function and style and totally worth the price...

    • Written by Karen B from Los Angeles

    This new trackpad is a no-brainer for trackpad lovers. There is no comparison with the original Magic Trackpad whatsoever and anyone who says it is too expensive is not appreciating all it has to offer. It just works and so effortlessly, it is beautiful and looks amazing on my desk and love the glass surface. It is so comfortable to run your fingers across and you will hate your laptop trackpads forever more.
    Run, don't walk and buy this baby if you want a fabulous, responsive, easy on the eyes, new piece of wonderful Apple tech! Thank you again Apple!

    Magic Trackpad 2

    • Written by Konstatinos B from Bayside

    When I saw this new trackpad I was very skeptical, but I still ordered it anyway and I glad I did. It clicks anywhere it's much bigger than the first one which is great it's just a great great product overall a little expensive though bit well worth the money.

    Fantastic!!

    • Written by Anil S from Irvine

    Just received my Magic Trackpad today. Even better than version 1. So smooth and easy to use, whether it's tapping, dragging, swiping. Setup is so easy. Works flawlessly. Great job Apple!!!

    Awesome

    • Written by Juanfer B from Lima

    Really accurate, love that the clicking is even across the trackpad. And forgetting about the batteries is even better! The gestures are so useful to me, totally worth it!

    Quite literally 'magical'!

    • Written by Jonathan G from SPANAWAY

    I've used Apple's trackpads since wayyyy way back, laptops have always been good, but the advent of the glass trackpad ups that to 'nearly perfect' and definitely outstanding, without peer, etc...

    The NEW Magic Trackpad trumps everything before it. The taptic engine is where the magic resides. It's a trip to know that you're not actually feeling a click when all experience tells you that you indeed are actually feeling vertical movement where only minute horizontal movement exists. The surface feels as silky as ever... Apple's trackpad surfaces are oddly without peer, too...

    It's beautifully made, mirrors the screen dimension ratio of most Apple displays, instead of being roughly square, it's now rectilinear. In just over 26 hours since I turned mine on for the first time, it's lost 3% of its charge, which correlates with the stated battery life, so far...

    Anyway, try one out, you'll love love LOVE it! Guaranteed.

    Magic Trackpad

    Must-have for every desktop Mac

    • Written by Ho Hin W from Hong Kong

    This trackpad does exactly as advertised.

    I bought this trackpad exactly one month ago and the battery just drained to 0%. So yeah, it could last for about a month under normal usage.

    Apple Trackpads never disappointed me since the iBook (Mid 2005) with two finger scrolling. Multi Touch Trackpad on my MacBook Unibody (2008) was smooth like silk and I could live without a mouse.

    Most PC trackpads, even as of today, are simply incomparable to Apple's. They are slow, sluggish, and feels bad when you touch them.

    The Magic Trackpad, however, has a smooth glass surface that moves your cursor accurately and scrolls smoothly. Force Touch is a plus although not all applications are utilising it.

    What's more, you can pair and even use this trackpad as a wired device with the included lightening to USB cable. Simple.

    Great Track Pad

    • Written by Michael H from Alderley Edge

    This is a much better track pad than previous version. Wonderful ease of movement around the screen, instant response to movement and gestures and a much easier right click. The main improvement is the design which has made the trackpad stable and as a consequence easier to use. Even my youngest child noticed how much better Magic Trackpad 2 is and has stopped wanting to use a mouse. One more thing the connectivity with a lightening cable is just a fantastic tool to start up.

    Not just Bluetooth, wired USB too!

    • Written by William K from Louisville

    Though the specs state Bluetooth 4.0 is required, the new Magic Trackpad 2 also works well with most older versions of Bluetooth. For example, I'm using mine with a MacBook Pro 5,1 and a tower Mac Pro, neither of which has BT 4.0.

    However, here's a secret Apple is for some reason keeping - when connected to USB to charge, the Magic Trackpad 2 works as a regular USB device! This means all of you who have been yearning for a wired Magic Trackpad have had your wishes granted. While Bluetooth obviously still works when wired, you can also simply shut Bluetooth off and use it as a wired device. All functions work as expected over USB, including swiping and Force Touch.

    I think Apple's missing a major selling point by not mentioning it will work via USB, and therefore on most ANY Mac (granted, I haven't tried old PowerPC Macs), but certainly it's compatible with any Mac dating to or newer than late 2008.

    As a long-time user of the old Magic Trackpad, it does sit a little flatter, but I got used to it in no time and I will never again see my Mac notify me about needing to replace the trackpad's batteries.

    A VERY highly recommended upgrade for any original Magic Trackpad fan, and if buying a new desktop Mac you'd IMHO be silly to choose a mouse instead.

    Increase in size makes this a better trackpad for multi-finger gestures.

    • Written by ROLLAND R from Muenster

    With a larger format size this new trackpad is much better then the previous smaller trackpad as the previous trackpad version made multi-finger gestures crowded and harder to perform. Upgrade to the new largerTrackpad 2 is certainly worth it if you want use the more complicated gestures for shortcut controls set up under System Preferences.

    Nice redesign

    • Written by Travis T from West Linn

    Ever since I've used the original trackpad it's hard to go back to a mouse. The trackpad is so much easier on your wrist and hand movement and it's much easier to move the cursor around the wide screen. Nice redesign on the pad with a wider width and has a nice feel when using the clicking. Overall much improved!

    Fantastic trackpad!

    • Written by Steve P from Vancouver

    I love this trackpad, a huge improvement over the last generation in every regards. The haptic force touch feedback is a thing of genius, and I look forward to seeing this functionality move its way to iPads, and future Apple products.

    The surface is larger and the aspect ratio is more appropriate for wide aspect displays. I use dual displays, and find that this trackpad works really well. I also love how you can click anywhere on the trackpad, rather then being limited to the bottom right or left corner. Paired with the new keyboard, it is a beautiful and highly functional combo. It has a nice responsive feel to it, and the all white design looks great. Another great feature is the ability to physically turn it off (with a switch) and the ability to charge it without needing external batteries. The battery life seems really good and it pairs easily without issue.

    I did upgrade from the previous generation wireless keyboard and trackpad, and despite the crazy price, the upgrade is worthwhile (for me). If you find yourself using photoshop or any drawing tool that uses pressure sensitivity, this trackpad allows you to draw pressure sensitive strokes which is nice (although Wacom products with a stylus are still far superior for any serious creative work).

    Overall, if you can justify the cost, this is an awesome product.

    Had my doubts, but they are gone.

    • Written by Eric M from East Brunswick

    I was sitting in the Apple store getting some help for my phone when I finally took out my Magic Trackpad original. For a couple years now I was having problems where the rubber stopper on the bottom kept falling out. I would not have normally cared, but that needed to stay in for it to click properly. Finally though, the stopper died and I was faced with a big decision. I could either pay $60 to replace the Magic Trackpad OR I could shell out $130 something (plus tax) for the Magic Trackpad 2. I went with the later and I am so glad I did!

    Not having to worry about stupid rubber stoppers popping out is just the beginning benefit. I love that it is wider and seems to function better with my 27in iMac. As I work in languages having the force touch has immediately become invaluable. Being able to look up the meanings of words in other languages without even technically clicking on the pad is amazing. I will lastly add I love the idea of just using the lightning charger to charge it. I hated using and spending on all of those batteries!

    The lower profile is the only thing that is taking a bit of getting used to, but I find I am liking it better and may decide to get its keyboard equivalent, but more just for the lighting charging capability. I really hate wasting money on batteries that are also harmful to the environment.

    Highly recommended and though it is expensive, it is something that you will probably need to replace in 5 years (think how much one spends on a new phone yearly and it becomes justifiable).

    The best in class.

    • Written by Milankumar P from Jamaica

    Today, its 2 month and 5 days since I bought the trackpad and keyboard. I am charging the trackpad first time ever. It got whooped up to 100% in crushing 45 mins. Lets see how long this last. As I said the last charge lasted 2 month and 5 days.

    The PLUS, keyboard is still at 62%, which is amazing.

    Its expensive but I would recommend this product.

    So happy I upgraded

    • Written by David B from Quinns Rocks

    Had the original Trackpad for years and thought that was good, but version 2 is a joy to use.

    It needs time to get used to clicking anywhere and having force feedback but now when I use the old trackpad on my Macbook Pro it feels antiquated.

    Nice Improvement Over Previous Model

    • Written by Aaron J from Overland Park

    I like that this new Track Pad requires no batteries and works while charging. Given that it works while charging this Track Pad may not need to be replaced after the internal battery has reached EOL. However, I'm sure by then Apple will have developed another "must have" to replace it.

    I really have no Cons with this product although others have complained that their fingers don’t glide across the surface as smoothly and others have complained about spotty BT connectivity. My fingers glide effortlessly across the surface, albeit not any better than with the previous model but certainly no worse. Maybe they should adjust the scroll speed as their complaint could be related to a manifested visual anomaly. Just saying…

    Regarding BT connectivity...here again no problems. I plugged the lightening cable into a USB port on my Late 2009 27" iMac running El Capitan and the Track Pad paired automatically with no interaction by me. I Unplugged the Cable from the Track Pad with no connectivity issues.This Trackpad is very stable on my desk and ergonomics are quite good; if not slightly better given the reduced angle versus the previous model. I have the feedback feature turned-on so I have the same experience as before (albeit a mental simulated surface depression) even though this one uses “Force Touch” which makes the transition barely noticeable.

    Upside versus the Magic Mouse 2…Track Pad offers more gestures and can be used while charging.

    I also purchased the new Magic Keyboard with the biggest improvements for me being…no batteries and works while charging. Here again…given that it works while charging this Keyboard may not need to be replaced after the internal battery has reached EOL.

    I cant believe I paid $200 CAD for a trackpad

    • Written by VESSELIN P from Montreal

    Yep... with the taxes here in Canada it was $200... for a trackpad! Still can't wrap my head around that.. BUT this thing is amazing.

    Incredible high quality materials, force touch works very well, no need for batteries... did i mention the materials!? Its a pleasure to touch and use, you can tell someone put a TON of love into this product.

    If spending that much money on a trackpad doesn't make you sick to your stomach, this is the best one I've ever laid my hands on.

    Great TrackPad - Drag & Drop Issue Resolved

    • Written by Aaron J from Lenexa

    I find no problems with this new generation of TrackPad. Smooth scrolling, no problems with BT connections and overall great performance. Many have complained about the Drag & Drop (D&D) feature gone missing. Rather than rant about how awful this product is and leave a low rating I decided to call Apple support. What a novel idea!

    Sarcasm aside... for some reason Apple decided to place the activation for the D&D feature in Preferences > TrackPad > Accessibility. Go Figure??? Bad move Apple.

    Now before you run to your Apple Computer to look for the feature....know that it will not be visible until after the TrackPad 2 has been paired. So, if you're a person that has to see-it-to-believe-it I suggest you go to your nearest Apple Store (or 3rd party retailer) and check it out on a demo model.

    Assuming you were otherwise satisfied with the TrackPad 2...you now have no reason not to take the $129 plunge. Enjoy!
