Apple has recently launched a new input device Magic Trackpad for Apple desktops which can do pretty much more than what a mouse can do. Because it supports a full set of gestures which u can't do with a mouse. It is something just like a touchpad u see on laptops especially Mac Book pro. Costing just under $69 this device will allow users to do all clicking and flipping through pages in a book or magazine with just a smooth touch. This is the first of its kind multi touch track-pad device designed to work with desktops. And inertial scrolling makes moving up and down a page more natural than ever. Magic Trackpad connects to your Mac via Bluetooth wireless technology. Since it works with Bluetooth connectivity, users don't need to deal with cables anymore, users can enjoy connectivity from up to 33 feet's away from the desktop which is connected. And this is a largest multi-touch track-pad ever. This is also an intelligent device which could automatically detects periods of inactivity, and react accordingly when consuming power. Since this device runs on battery, this feature could conserve battery life. Even if you use it for full time, you could smoothly run magic track-pad for a month without having to change the battery. At the moment, this device is only available for Mac users, but some believe apple will be rolling out a variant for windows sooner this year.  you can but this amazing device on Amazon for just 69$ with free shipping.

  1. Works just like the macbook pro trackpad
    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.
