    Anyone else? I really like a lot of the gestures, especially those for switching between virtual desktops, but they're way too hard to pull off on the magic mouse.

    I have a MacBook Pro and I'm even wanting a Magic Trackpad in addition to the wireless keyboard. I can't see myself buying a regular mouse setup anymore.

    Yup! Not surprised at all to hear this based on how iOS driven Lion is. I am planning on installing Lion tonight on my MBP. I see a trip to the Apple store for a magic track pad soon! :)

    You NEEEEEEED one to experience Lion. The OS was CLEARLY made for the magic trackpad. I could not imagine using it with a mouse

    Ah so this is one of the undocumented features of Lion, installed. The intense desire to acquire more hardware! :D Cool! :confused:

    Well I'm using the Magic Mouse with Lion and I gotta say, it works just fine for Lion!

    In Safari, one finger swipe left or right to go back and fourth, two finger swipe left or right to switch between spaces/full-screen apps, double tap with two fingers to launch mission control, and one finger tap within certain apps such as Safari to zoom in the page.

    Honestly, with the exception of no gesture for launching Launchpad with the mouse, I don't see why I'd need a magic trackpad when I already own a Magic Mouse.
