Great product

Pros: Good alternative device for people with disabilities who get tendonitis from prolonged mousing

Cons: Inconsistent features with Mac system upgrades

Hello,   This is a great product. It has made it possible for me to work again, having been partially disabled by recurring tendonitis from the strain of using a mouse or trackball all day long.   However, with the latest OS X system upgrades, tap-drag has gone away and has been replaced by three-finger drag. This is difficult to get used to, difficult to coordinate with my fingers, and slows my productivity. Why do away with something that is working?   Might I suggest and request that Apple brings back the earlier tap-drag feature, and lets the user choose which drag option to use in track-pad preferences?

Pros: is cool especially with lion installed on mac and all of its different gestures and things like mission control

Cons: can take a little while to get used to unless you are used to using the trackpad on laptops alot

This is a cool mac accessory. This product works good with mac os x lion and will also work good with the new mountain lion. The magic trackpad is like having a bigger version of the mac laptop trackpad but wireless and bigger with 2 batteries. With the magic track pad and mac os x lion it lets you do things like lots of gestures, zoom into web pages etc easily with a pinch on your iMac etc computer , use mission control easyer, access the dash board with just a swipe, access all desktops etc with a 3 finger swipe up , stroll down web pages, documents etc with just 2 fingers going either up or down of the trackpad. This is good for if you have a desktop mac with lion or later installed...
