Apple’s Magic Trackpad seems to be a real product. It’s about as simple as ripping one out of a MacBook or MacBook Pro, giving it a battery holder, some Bluetooth love, and now it’s magically for the desktop. I would probably go for this in a heartbeat, as I’m pretty fed up with swapping batteries on the wireless “Magic Mouse” that magically drains a brand new set of AAs in 3-4 weeks, or AA NiMHs in 2-3 weeks. Apple says this is “normal” however I think it’s a bit wasteful and poor in performance. If this Trackpad can last a bit longer than that while giving the same feel and functionality of the MacBook, only larger, it may be a worthwhile option to explore. You can also move windows by three finger dragging, multitouch gestures for the desktop! Yay.
It’s shipping now for $69 from Apple.[engadget, Apple]
