5.0 out of 5 stars The best piece of hardware ever made?, November 16, 2010
This review is from: Apple Magic Trackpad Compatible with Apple Mac Desktop Computer (MC380LL/A) (Personal Computers)
I have used nothing but Macs. since the late 80s when I was a design student. Having stated that, I am most certainly neither a macophile nor a particular fan or CEO Steve Jobs, I consider my opinions therefore objective and as truthful as they can be. As a designer I find mice generally too distant, too lacking in the feeling of being connected to my designs. Dare I say it, it's rather like wearing a c****m during sex. I have therefore preferred to create on a laptop instead and use the in-built trackpad - the obvious problem there, however. is the screen size... never a clear winner. Recently I bought my first iMac for my office (SUPERB product!) and one of the driving factors behind that decision was undoubtedly the arrival of the 'magic track pad'. What can I say? This is undoubtedly one of the top three pieces of hardware ever devised and manufactured, and I could well argue it is number one! Can you tell me a better piece of hardware? If so leave your idea in the comments section please, I'd be keen to hear what can better this. Back to the review, it is typically stylish, refined, elegant and ergonomically perfect all of which we have come to expect from the designers at Apple and their Chinese manufacturers - so all that is said as a foregone conclusion. However, I have to say that this time the engineers have outdone themselves because this is super fast, super efficient and just Sooo smooth. It's like pouring treacle through Paul Desmond's alto saxophone. I use it with 'Illustrator' and it is phenomenal especially on the 'two-finger mode'. In conjunction with the fast processors in the iMac you can blow up design to like 4000% and using the two-finger mode to go around and check the finer points of the design it is thoroughly seamless, like an extension of my brain. Scarily enough it reminds me of the film Minority Report... Nothing more to add, instead of to suggest you go buy one for yourself and significantly improve both your life and your hand-eye co-ordination skills. You will not regret this purchase.
