I wanted to use my iMac while sitting on my couch. I found a perfect small table for it, and this setup was great. I could surf the web while commercials were on TV. I got the magic trackpad to make this possible, as I couldn't move a mouse over the armrest of the couch, and those mice with the big red ball, i'm not too fond of using. Since the year I have had it, i've never had to go back to the standard mouse. I don't do any gaming on my iMac. My favorite part is the smooth inertia scrolling you get when browsing web pages. The other gestures like minimizing all windows, going to launchpad, or going to the widget screens, and zooming in and out of pictures and enlarging texts are very useful. The bluetooth connection has been reliable. I like that it takes AA and not AAA's. The battery life is great, and the way it's designed to be opened up with a coin, not needing a screwdriver is a cool touch. A little pricey, but definitely worth it. Maintains the nice Apple build quality using aluminum and glass. The pad has nice real estate. If you liked using it on the macbook, and want it for your iMac, you can't go wrong. Using the natural movement of your fingers is much more effortless and comfortable than pushing a mouse around.
