I just want a wireless Magic Mouse with a cursor that doesn't jump all over the place.
How about new WIRED Apple Mouse and new WIRED Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad with built-in hub including two ports of USB 3.1 Type C (reversible) Generation 2? Nothing like wired things. Just the freedom to forget about batteries, no Earth environmental impact and much more power/versatility (for instance, booting in target disk mode, verbose mode, etc).
Soon we'll be able to wave our ? pencil in front of the computer screen and exclaim magic spells like Harry Potter.
If only ! I'd pay a premium to draw better than my stick figure skills allow.
Sadly for us, Apple engineers could not imbue their latest creation with magic.
What if Apple were to incorporate touch id into both the new magic trackpad, and new magic mouse? Much like the Apple watch is securely linked to your iPhone, could not a new version of these devices be linked to a user account on a mac? This could revolutionize the way we login to websites, verify online purchases etc. Just thinking.
I don't type in the dark so don't need a backlit keyboard.
I also don't wander around the house whilst typing and the standard lead is long enough so I don't need a wireless keyboard.
Saying that, if they made a wireless backlit keyboard with number pad, I'd buy it.
Non clicking Magic Trackpad, erm, no thanks...I think.

It does make sense. No more fiddling with batteries, instead just plug in the lightning cable and you can continue your work with the same keyboard. Right now I have to switch to a wired keyboard while my batteries are charging.

what if a person only like keyboard and mouse combo. I mean oldies and wimen or non-tech folks? Apple must have both options. So, no combined keyboard-trackpad for sure. Backlit? Maybe.

Wasn't 3D Touch diferent to Force Touch? Everybody on the net seem to accept that 3D Touch is more advanced, allowing for different levels of force, while the former is just one force value. I really hope all Macs get the 3D Touch technology. If they're stuck at Force Touch, I'll pass.

I don't care for all of Apple's product names, but this one I absolutely detest. It's like tools they issue students at Hogwarts. Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse, Magic Trackpad, what's next, Magic Mike?

Well I hope they do a new mouse, because frankly the current one sucks. It's way too heavy and scrapes along the desktop. Try gaming with it some time...

I had an idea a while back that when you start typing numbers on your apple keyboard your trackpad revealed these white numbered lights below its surface in the layout of a number pad via microscopic holes in the glass like how the power light is hidden. Or simply beneath the glass in a well done manner and you can continue from there to type the numbers via your trackpad. Don't type numbers via trackpad for a given period and they fade out.
Count yourself lucky that the Apple pencil isn't magical.
Actually, with Siri sometimes, I already feel like I'm doing this ...

"Wimen"?? WTF is wrong with you? Women are somehow excluded from "tech folks" in your world?? They're somehow classified next to "oldies"??
My pro photographer friend is a [young] woman who's a skilled, tech-oriented person, and has very specific preferences in mice and keyboards.
Discounting women, as if they're some kind of lower caste, is really ignorant and lame.

That would be kinda cool.
Can I get an IBM Selectric keyboard for my iMac? If you've never typed on a Selectric, in my opinion you've never really typed.
When will I be able to afford all this awesome stuff?!?!
I'll be sure not to do that.
Sounds like you've got a hair stuck in your optical
