The New Magic Trackpad

July 27th, 2010

Apple has released the new Magic Trackpad.

This bluetooth wireless trackpad is essentially a larger (80% larger than the MacBook Pro 13″) laptop trackpad. The whole surface is clickable and made of the same glass found on the MacBook Pros.

Who wants this?

People that prefer a trackpad to traditional mouse for their Mac desktop or to use with an external keyboard with their Mac laptop. Apple highlights that you can use the new Magic Trackpad in conjunction with an external mouse, so you have all the input methods available for whatever your application.

My only real gripe is the name. “Magic” just doesn’t seem to fit with Apple’s overall brand strategy, although they seem intent on changing that.

The Magic Mouse is available now for $69 and requires a Mac with bluetooth and 10.6.4 or later.
