Apple Magic Trackpad first impressions

What seemed pretty far-fetched at one point in time actually doesn’t seem so out of bounds now that we know what it is, right? If you haven’t been keeping up on all things Apple, you can think of the Magic Trackpad as a much larger MacBook Pro trackpad with the same rough design identity as Apple’s Bluetooth keyboard. It has 4.5 inches of multi-touch and gesture-capable glass, and even will click thanks to the fact that the feet underneath… click. Using something like this on a desktop is a little disconcerting at first, as most everyone is used to having the trackpad right under the keyboard, not next to one. After a day of work usage, we’re pretty comfortable with the peripheral. Though, we’re just not sure yet if we’ll be moving the AA batteries in our Magic Mouse elsewhere just yet.
