    I am really keen on buying a Magic Trackpad to use with my Mac Pro (2.93Ghz 8 Core 2009 model with Bluetooth internal).

    I purchased a Magic Mouse - only to find it was useless due to the poor Bluetooth reception. My Tower sits to my left under my desk in a compartment just for the tower - my right (mouse) hand is some 4.5 feet away from the Tower - The bluetooth signal has to pass through 2 thick layers of MDF. If I was left handed I'd be fine, however

    Im worried the Magic Trakpad will have similar issues (ie: I won't be able to use it).

    So, what USB dongle is supported by MacOS X 10.6? Which one should I buy. I could stick it into the back of one of my 2 x 24" LED displays.

    Any help is greatly appreciated - as I really want to be kitted up for multi-touch for when Lion arrives.
