Apple Magic TrackPad
One of the most innovative thing that was included in Macbook and Macbook Pro is their Trackpad, where you can have multi-touch gestures that will do scrolling, flipping and zooming. This is something that no iMac or Mac Pro users can have, Apple released the first ever multi-touch Magic Mouse last year, but the gesture you can use are still quite limited.
Yesterday Apple released their new Apple Magic Trackpad, it is virtually taken out from Macbook Pro and reproduced into this new Apple Magic Trackpad, with bluetooth added. Now you can use the full multi-touch gestures that you normally use on Macbook Pro, swipe, pinch to zoom, scroll and more.
So who will benefit and what use will it have?
With Apple launching this Magic Trackpad, I can see users replacing it for their magic mouse or normal mouse, as anyone who have used Macbook Pro Trackpad will say that it is the best trackpad they have ever use. It can be said to be as easy to use as any mouse but can do more functions like pinch to zoom, swipe and even scroll with 2 or 3 fingers.
So who else will be interested in buying? Home Entertainment System owners! They have been looking for something like that for years!!! If your Home Entertainment System, let’s say a Mac Mini is plugged to your Television, it is not easy to use a mouse. You need to have a mouse pad or a table to do scrolling and pointing. With this Apple Magic Trackpad, you can use it on your lap and scroll and point like any other laptop you have. I believe this will be huge for Home Entertainment System users.
Apple Magic Trackpad can be buy from any Apple Store now or you can go to Apple website to purchase it.
