The largest Multi-Touch trackpad ever
Along with hardware upgrades to their Mac Pro, iMac, and Cinema Display lines, Apple unveiled something entirely different for owners of their desktop computers: a fully functional, stand-alone “Magic Trackpad” that offers the same multi-finger control of the MacBook trackpad.
It’s likely the first move by a major manufacturer to push finger controls for screen manipulation on a desktop computer, and while most desktop users probably aren’t ready to ditch their mouse entirely, it will be interesting to see what develops, and if the idea of using a trackpad rather than a mouse takes hold.
Apple’s certainly designed their Magic Trackpad with side-by-side in mind, as the device lines up at the same angle as their Bluetooth keyboard. Read up on the Magic Trackpad at Apple’s store and at Gizmodo, and tell us whether your desktop experience could make room for a trackpad in the comments.
