    I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for good mouse pads/anything similar to a mouse pads function. I would prefer something that fits well with the Magic Mouse and Alu Keyboard.

    Allsop makes a set of mouse pads, one being the Cupertino and the other being the Redmond... Seriously...
    That being said, I have the Cupertino one, matches all my Apple swag, and was pretty cheap (think I got it under 20 bucks)

    Macpadd without a doubt. just a sheet of aluminum brushed and sitting pretty on your minimalist desktop with wireless keyboard and mouse.

    Every other mousepad seems too much. Here it is on my desk.

    Ordered mine Sunday from OWC. Tracking info says it's been unloaded here in Phoenix. I should have it by the time I get home from work.

    Glad I was able to pass along the info and, hopefully, help some people from losing some cash.

    For those recommending the MacPadd, aren't you bothered by the "noise"? It is really noisy! :eek:

    I read about the MacPadd and decided that the owner of the company was probably a creative genius with "problems" and that the company would probably be out of business soon which would make the MacPadd's very rare. ;)

    Therefore, I decided to order from OWC since I knew that I would have recourse if there was a problem.

    I must say, it is a beautiful mouse pad and the noise is minimal. I would you suggest that if you are interested in a MacPadd that you place an order with OWC before they run out of stock.

    My magic mouse performs best with no mouse pad. The rails on the bottom of the mouse drags on most all mouse pads i've used, tho glides nicely right on the top of my desk.

    It's TOO slippery on my desk. Feels like I'm moving around a melting ice cube. But too much sliding friction on my mousepad. I need a surface between the two, but haven't found one yet.

    I've had the MacPadd for a week now. Frankly, I think I like it. At first I was a bit put off by the sound of the magic mouse moving on the pad, it's certainly "noisier", but now that I've had a chance to get used to it I find I don't notice it as much; I even find it somewhat pleasant now, somehow. I've used the mouse on the desk surface and that's only slightly less noisy. It does slide along the pad more than, say, a felt-type pad but it's not really distracting to me. Additionally, it does compliment the look of the iMac and keyboard nicely. Maybe the only thing I'd change is to have the larger 9"x9" size pad, vs the 6"x9" I got, but it's not a deal breaker. The pad is very stable on the desk due to the non-stick surface on the bottom, it doesn't budge at all.

    Clearly this is subject to personal preference, but I'd recommend it if you want something a bit unique and don't mind paying a bit more than usual for your average mousepad from Fry's or Best Buy.

    Can anybody vouch for the Cupertino Mouse Pad. I really like the look of it but would be uninterested if its as noisy as the MacPadd. Can anybody vouch for this mouse pad and its "noise level"? Thanks!

    I use the Cupertino Mouse Pad with my Magic Mouse and there's very, very little noise.
