    Hi,

    I finally decided to try the Magic Trackpad and it is meh. I am trying to give it a few days before I return it. YES, I HAVE READ FORUM POSTS about the trackpad and there is substantial love for the trackpad.

    I rest my wrist on the table and hover over the pad, but that is causing wrist fatigue fast. How do you use it? Do you rest on a pad or only use the bottom third of the pad or what?

    I love my MBP flat trackpad, but the curved design seems odd since you have to raise your hand to use it.

    I've been using the trackpad for a long time now and really like it. However, several months ago I also began experiencing the same fatigue. I ordered a wrist pad specifically made for the magic trackpad (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AJCSIGM/) and it's solved the fatigue for me.

    While I was at it I also ordered a matching wrist pad for the wireless keyboard (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AJE771W).

    Hope that helps! :apple:

    I used in my off-hand (left hand) to navigate since I cannot use my mouse left-handed (mainly due to mouse design).

    I rest my hand on the table.

    How do you position your hand? Do you hover your fingers over the trackpad?
