Apple Magic Trackpad –t he first Multi-Touch Trackpad designed to work with your Mac desktop computer, the Apple Magic Trackpad lets your fingers do the clicking, scrolling, and swiping. The Apple Magic uses the same Multi-Touch technology found on the MacBook Pro, giving you a whole new way to control and interact with what’s on your screen. Swiping through pages online feels just like flipping through pages in a book or magazine. Inertial scrolling makes moving up and down a page more natural than ever. And users can press down anywhere on the Multi-Touch surface to physically click or double-click on an item–no clumsy buttons involved.
The Magic Trackpad is just like the trackpad on the MacBook Pro–but bigger. It’s made with the same advanced touch-friendly and wear-resistant glass surface, but with nearly 80 percent more area. This gives you even more room to scroll, swipe, pinch, and rotate to your fingers’ content. And because the entire surface is a button that clicks, you can use it in place of a mouse without losing a hint of functionality. The Magic Trackpad’s full set of gestures includes two-finger scrolling, pinching to zoom, rotating with your fingertips, three-finger swiping, and activating Expose or switching between applications with four fingers. Plus, the trackpad is customizable. Simply access the Magic Trackpad pane in System Preferences to enable gestures you want and disable those you don’t.
The Magic Trackpad fits in perfectly with your Mac desktop, with the same sculpted aluminum design as the Apple Wireless Keyboard. In fact, side by side the two sit flush at the same angle and height. This lets you go from trackpad to keyboard in a single motion, or do both at the same time. How perfect is that?
The Magic Trackpad connects to your Mac via Bluetooth wireless technology, so you don’t have to deal with an annoying cable that dictates where you place it. Once you pair the Magic Trackpad with your Bluetooth-enabled Mac, you’ll enjoy a reliable, secure connection up to 33 feet away. In addition, the Magic Trackpad detects periods of inactivity, with an automatic shutoff feature that saves battery life. As an alternative, you can turn it off yourself. Both options keep you gesturing for months at a time.
The Magic Trackpad can work in place of a mouse or in conjunction with the mouse on any Mac computer (even a notebook)–requires a Bluetooth-enabled Mac computer, two AA batteries (included), Mac OS X Snow Leopard v 10.6.4, and the latest software update.
According to the review by P.Song from US, “I have a strong preference for touchpads over mice so I was pretty delighted upon hearing about this being released by Apple. I have another touchpad made by Adesso that I use with desktops, but it is wired and not nearly as nice or large as the Apple one. This trackpad works exactly like the built-in one on the macbook pro. It’s slim and very elegant looking. There is no lag like you get with wireless optical mice. The glass surface, however, has a bit of ‘texture’ to it unlike the macbook’s trackpad which is shiny. It’s almost like a matte finish to it which is ok as a perfectly shiny glass surface can stick a bit if your fingers are a little sweaty. (But if your fingers are dry, the shiny feels a little better ”
” It’s well constructed and seems sturdy. The top part that holds the battery feels cool like aluminum though I’m not sure if it is. But it’s not cheap plastic. It has a nice solid feel and I’m extremely happy with it. I visited the local Apple store to try it out before buying, but they did not have it in yet. But I’m glad I went ahead and ordered it from Apple because it’s exactly what I wanted. I will never use another mouse again!When you get it, make sure that you update your OS software to get the trackpad drivers. It will work without the update but you won’t be able to adjust it and features will be missing. You might have your computer on auto update in which case you don’t need to worry about this. But if you’re a weirdo like me and prefer to manually update, then keep this in mind. When the batteries die, I’ll update this review to give a sense of how long the batteries last.”
