In place of a mouse?

I'm using my Macbook Pro as a desktop, with a large display attached. The trackpad on the MBP isn't easily accessible from where I am.

I wouldn't mind an external multitouch trackpad of some kind, but one that does the same gestures as Apple's. But maybe that's a patent issue?

A quick look on the Apple site shows that no, they do not sell this.

You're ready for OS XI, aren't you. Good for you! :D

there are iphone and ipod touch apps like touch pad elite that do just that very easily.

No. Only the mighty mouse.

No but they should. They should make it the default bundle with desktops, too. Possibly building it into the keyboard.

Agreed. Not a big deal, really. But it would be nice.
