Does Apple sell a separate multitouch trackpad?

    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

    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.
