    Apple trackpads really are something else than everything similar ever produced, I love the gestures. However, after some weeks of use I am starting to get a little wrist strain because I have to flex my hand slightly upward. I don't have this upward flex on my macbook pro because my wrist is positioned at the same level as the touchpad.

    Anyone else has a solution to this problem? Would appreciate any help!

    Would a small wrist rest/pad be beneficial? It would help to keep your hand more level with the trackpad.

    Is your trackpad/keyboard combo mounted too low relative to your shoulders? Perhaps you could experiment with your chair height to see it changing it helps. I type and track with flat wrists at my desk. I don't know if this is a preferred position or not but this Magic Trackpad has never caused me any discomfort.
