    Awesome Device!

    • Written by Richard H from Tulsa

    I ordered this with my new iMac mainly because I am not a fan of the Magic Mouse so I decided I would rather spend a few extra dollars and get the trackpad. I have a Logitech mouse which is what I had intended to use and have the trackpad to use for certain tasks. Wow, I got the computer and set up both the mouse and the trackpad and after just a few days I put the mouse away. I loved the trackpad on my old MacBook Pro but I think this one is even better. For starters I do not have any of the odd behaviors that some have described. It works exactly as it should. Unlike my MacBook Pro I can move this one to wherever it is most comfortable. The charge lasts forever and I love the fact that it is solid state with only one moving part, the switch (For the person that complained that the switch is too delicate...What? It's an On/Off switch not something you use in your normal activities.). All of the multi-touch gestures work exactly as they should, including Click and Drag. I couldn't be more pleased. I highly recommend this product!

    Great buy

    • Written by Aaron D from Pettswood

    This product is very useful and flows very well, the pressure touch is a great feature and the gesture customisation makes it extremely easy to use; the simplistic design is also very aesthetically pleasing on a desk or table.

    Transformational device

    • Written by Aiman B from Naperville

    I purchased the trackpad about an hour ago, and it is amazing device for navigating the content and performing input functions. I did read the reviews about the trackpad before I purchased the device, and was somewhat skeptical...but I am an Apple user, and understand the transformative outlook they have towards user experience. The negative messages on this board, make me feel that folks were expecting the standard user experience from a computer mouse...it is understandable that change is never easy...but Apple makes it possible. Keep an open mind to change, and I can assure you once you begin to give up the old ways, you will begin to fly with the many possibilities of this awesome device.

    WOW

    • Written by Gordon W from Gaven

    Having read the reviews I was skeptical about getting this. I have tried them all; mice with a plethora of buttons, trackballs etc. Having been introduced to the trackpad via the MacBook I decided to try one on the iMac. Well to all the people writing negative reviews, you are dead wrong. Click and drag... try clicking with your thumb and dragging with your index finger. Too much scrolling... scroll faster or adjust the tracking speed. I can get from one side of a 27 inch screen to the other in about an inch on the trackpad. Spurious clicks or unwanted actions... not if you follow the instructions. Battery life... leave it plugged in, and also stops it falling of the desk, although with the weight and the friction pads on the bottom, I found it was almost impossible to push it off the desk.
    All in all very happy with the purchase. The only negative is the price. Apple... greed will be your downfall as this is double the cost it should be.

    Best purchase ever. Don't really like mouses, so this is perfect to me

    • Written by Juan Sebastian C from Tuluá

    I've always used a trackpad, and this new model just raises the bar once again. It feels great, the gestures help a lot and my productivity increases as a result. Also, my hand doesn't get as tired as when I use a mouse (don't know really why but it's a great benefit).

    It feels really strong and sturdy, haven't had a single problem since I bought it one month ago.

    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.

    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).

    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!

    Love IT!!

    • Written by Kristina C from Des Moines

    I love that it automatically connects to the computer when you turn it on! Read the reviews and I agree with some of the 4 & 5 Stars that it is easy to use but there is adjusting in the settings how to use it the way you like it. When I get a new gadget always go to the settings and see how I can customize it.

    Best purchase for my MacBook since buying my MacBook

    • Written by John R from Putnam Valley

    Bought this for my 2017 MacBook when connect to a monitor. I didn't know what to expect when ordering but that went way as soon as I opened it. One of the best parts of Apple accessories is the ease of connecting. It does everything just like the trackpad on the MacBooks. So my over all experience so far is overwhelmingly positive. Would recommend this to any Mac owner. Mac was meant to be experienced through a trackpad hands down.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    So far great, love it!

    • Written by Frank V from Lakewood

    My work has me on the road quite a bit and for years I've made due with simply taking my MBP 15" along. However, there are lots of times I need to work on my MBP hours at a time and really miss the ergonomic setup at home (MBP w/external 27" monitor attached, both elevated, and using the detached wireless KB and MT). After recently seeing a colleague using a portable Roost laptop stand, I decided to give this a try.

    So, as part of this experiment, I also decided I'd finally shell out the extra $$ and upgrade to the new Magic keyboard and Magic Trackpad 2. My daughter and son have been using the new ones since Jan 2017 with their Mac Books and neither have ever mentioned any issues (ex. w/dragging, etc.). My older wireless KB and MT have been great, love them both. However, being able to power/recharge the newer MKB and MT2 w/o worrying about bringing a battery charger along too was appealing.

    After trying out the new MKB and MT2 now for several hours this AM, so far, I'm experiencing absolutely no issues w/ it re: dragging, etc. Like others have mentioned, the MT2 seems to be a bit more responsive to the touch (which I like) than the older MT, but I'm not doing a "side-by-side" test either. I like the slightly lower angle so far. All-in-all I happy with it. TBH I think I'll appreciate the new MT2 even more when I don't have to look for my battery charger in a few weeks (especially when I'm on the road). I'm looking forward with continuing the experiment once my Roost arrives today. The real test will come when I hit the road again on Monday though.

    Love it

    • Written by Jim F from San Antonio

    I purchased the trackpad to use with my (closed) laptop, keyboard, and 27-inch monitor in the office. Setup was fast and easy. It's reliable and a delight to use. I had considered and rejected the previous version of the trackpad, because it felt clumsy when I tried it in the Apple Store. I suppose I would have gotten used to it, but I'm glad I waited for this one. Absolutely zero time getting accustomed to it. It felt right immediately. No problems with recognition of swipes, clicks, etc. No difficulties at all.

    Magic Trackpad 2 better than a mouse

    • Written by David W from Akron

    I bought the magic trackpad to replace a 2-year old well worn wireless mouse that had a tendency to take a nap and disconnect itself at the worst possible times. I was hesitant after reading that drag-and-drop was a problem with that trackpad. I bought it anyway. I have had no problems with the trackpad, drag and drop works great. I am glad to be free of my lazy mouse. If only my internet was as reliable. When my internet cut off a critical download yesterday I slammed my fist down on the desk. Unfortunately my trackpad took a direct hit. Thankfully it still works great! Maybe if you are having trouble with drag and drop you should try the fist slam technique!

    I love this mouse

    • Written by Justin A from EAST OTIS

    Reviews are based on everyone's personal experience with new devices and technologies. If they have a bad or good experience, they associate that with the particular product. But as I am writing to you on this Magic Trackpad, I love this trackpad. I was surprised just how small it was, yet a specious flat surface for mouse control and versatility . Having a macbook pro complicates the mouse nicely. Its light and the typing seed is quite fast. Getting used to another keyboard, mouse, or even computer takes some time. But if you hang in there, all 60 seconds, your experience will be positive. However, I fully understand different strokes for different folks. But personal experience has told me that I immediately love this tracking device and confirms my faith in Apple, after reading some of the not-so-positive reviews. Thank you and good night. FYI, I literally posted the same review for the magic keyboard review as well.

    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.
