    Is anyone else in the profession of graphic design and/or web design used the magic trackpad professionally?

    I really like the idea of how it could be used like panning and pinch zooming and gestures and all, but when the rubber hits the road, did it help at all or end up just being kind of gimmicky?

    If you want to go pro with that sort of input, you may find a tablet more useful, although I imagine that the magic trackpad wouldn't be a bad solution either.

    Sorry I should have mentioned that. I've got a large size intuos3 that I use also well. Maybe I'm just doubling up where I don't need to :)

    I originally had tried the Pen and Touch version of the bamboo but the touch was just awful on the thing.

    I have a magic trackpad and a windows mouse. I do a lot of drawing in Microsoft Visio and always switch back to the mouse
    I like the trackpad for browsing and other stuff. Just not drawing
