Even though Magic Trackpad is capable of multiple gestures, you may find one or two unnecessary. Not to worry. Simply access the Magic Trackpad pane in System Preferences to enable gestures you want and disable those you don’t want.

If you are on the fence about a mouse vs a trackpad, go with the trackpad. You will be happy that you did.
As a long time mouse user, I took the advice of others and used the Trackpad for a total of ten days. They were right, you really do get used to it rather quickly. Indeed, I really had a hard time deciding to go back to the mouse. There is a lot to like about it. I found it to be a bit easier on my wrist, not that the mouse is a burden. But there was a noticeable difference in wrist fatigue between the two, the Trackpad being less fatiguing.
Scrolling is great! If scrolling was the only consideration, the Trackpad would win hands down! I can't say I was thrilled with the click and drag feature of the Trackpad, but it wasn't a deal breaker. The click utilized for dragging (pushing down the entire Trackpad) is a bit stiff, and I have big hands. The click (different from the primary click I will describe later) occurs when you press down on the Trackpad and the two small modules on the underside are depressed slightly into the pad itself. Then, while maintaining relatively firm downward pressure, you drag your finger across the pad, accomplishing a click and drag on the monitor. Not near as easy as with a mouse, but I wouldn't have gotten rid of it just for that.
The Trackpad was rock solid. I used it on a wood desk and at no time did it even begin to move.
The real problem is the primary (left for a mouse) click and secondary (right for a mouse) click. These are accomplished with a tap on the top of the pad with either one or two fingers, one finger for left click and two fingers for right click. I was constantly accomplishing a primary click when it was not my intent. And the click itself was inconsistent. Most of the time if I merely lightly brushed the pad with a finger, or happened to let my finger lay on it, I got a click. Then there were times that I wanted to click and when I purposely tapped on the pad, nothing happened. On those occasions I would have to tap the pad a second time more forcefully. But the clicks that I did not want were the worst! I found myself navigating around any click-able items on a web page to avoid being sent off to a page I did not want, or selecting something I didn't care to select. This became increasingly annoying, and if in the process of making a purchase, or buying or selling stocks, it was quite problematic! The secondary click, though not near as bad, could be a problem if you do not hit the pad with both fingers at the same time. I often got a primary click when trying to perform a secondary click.
In all fairness, there are other ways to accomplish some clicks and drags with the Trackpad. But those involve use of the keyboard or having only a small portion or corner of the Trackpad utilized for clicks. I was interested only in using it in the same general manner as I use a mouse, without utilizing the key board or, looking to ensure I was hitting a certain area of the pad to perform a click.
So, it's back to a mouse for me. I will conclude by saying though that if either Apple or Logitech produces a Trackpad without the click shortcomings, such as being able to adjust the tap firmness required to perform a click, I will be waiting in line to buy it!
The Magic Trackpad does take some getting used to, but couldn't be easier to setup via Bluetooth connection. It looks good and its settings can be tweaked to your liking in System Preferences - Trackpad. I suggest watching the brief tutorials provided there or going to the Apple site in Support to view them. *The back of the box also has basic traackpad gestures explained. Taking a look at all these things really helped me to feel more confident in using this trackpad.
This is a fairly expensive accessory, but well worth the money if you spend a lot of time working with photos or scrolling through multiple web pages on a daily basis. The build quality is excellent and once you train your brain to use it, it's a great time saver.
