My new Apple Magic Trackpad

I love the build-in Trackpad on my Apple MacBook Pro very much, with 10 fingers typing and alternately using both hands to work on the Trackpad, super. But if I connect my MacBook to my Led Cinema Display, than my external keyboard & mouse are conneced to the screen and my MacBook is closed and trackpad un-touched…
Was… because since of today I’ve an external Magic Trackpad next to my keyboard on my desk, just marvellous.

AutoCAD for Mac will also come with support for several multi-touch gestures (well known from working on the iPhone) using a MacBook or external Trackpad. This is what an Autodesk support engineer wrote about it: “I first discovered these by accident. Without thinking about it, I did a 2-finger drag to pan a drawing I was working in and it actually PANNED”.

The new Magic Trackpad is the first Multi-Touch trackpad designed to work with your Mac desktop computer. It uses the same Multi-Touch technology you love on the MacBook Pro. And it supports a full set of gestures, giving you a whole new way to control and interact with what’s on your screen. Swiping through pages online feels just like flipping through pages in a book or magazine. And inertial scrolling makes moving up and down a page more natural than ever. Magic Trackpad connects to your Mac via Bluetooth wireless technology. Use it in place of a mouse or in conjunction with one on any Mac computer.
