Please forgive the extremely pretentious name: "Magic" Trackpad, 31 Jan 2011
To minimise the risk of RSI, I rotate the pointing device I use - for example, one week it will be the Wacom Bamboo Pen Graphics Tablet
, the next it will be this device. (I also cycle from left hand to right hand). So, this massively helps reduce finger pain.
Now the biggest drawback of this object is actually its absurd, pretentious name. I cringed a little when I saw this product and the name. I don't know why, I just did.
I personally love it and can navigate and just get things done, very quickly. I love the three-finger-drag (you have to enable it - annoyingly it's a bit buried it the 'System Preferences' window, which you can open by clicking on the little Apple logo in the top left of your screen)
I'm not going to comment on what it looks like, because that's irrelevant to me. I used it alongside the (Aluminium) Apple Keyboard
, it's at a similar inclination and the touch is just so responsive. It's beautiful and fluid, like an iPhone. I can compare it to a Wacom Bamboo Touch (Pen not included)
(which I bought a year before the Magic Trackpad came out) and it is infinitely superior. (Not to put down the Wacom Touch tablet, but this is just on an other level)
Note that you cannot really use this as your sole device if you're doing graphic design. You do not *need* this product, but it will complement what you already have and make you more productive.
