    Hard to say since the Magic Trackpad just shipped today. It looks like a great input device, but then again so did the Magic Mouse, but we know how that turned out. So I will reserve judgment until I've played w/ one.

    I don't know, The Trackpad is great on the Macbook - but I don't really see myself using it on a daily basis for a Desktop.

    I really love the Magic Mouse. I think it's one of the most underrated products Apple has released.

    I'm not really into trackpads, so I'm not excited by it; even if Steve says it's magic. :)

    Magic trackpad is very unnecessary product in my opinion. It costs 69 dollars dollars and that is a huge rip off. I wish it was built with apple wireless keyboard. But, those genius at apple decided to sell it separately. No thanks.

    Trackpad for me. I personally do not like the new mouse. It is to light and too low profile.

    Bets on how long before Belkin (or the likes) have a case/joiner thing that holds the wireless keyboard and magic trackpad together for sofa use!

    Pad, always hated mice. I have used trackballs for years, hate reserving desk space so the mouse has the necessary space.

    Already ordered so hope to have it within the week. Wanted this as soon as the rumors started to surface.

    When you buy an iMac in the UK you only have the option of:

    Magic Mouse
    or
    Magic Mouse + Magic Trackpad (+£59.00)
    or
    Apple Mouse

    I'd probably stick with the mouse for now, but depending on reviews I may buy a Trackpad later. Ergonomically I prefer a mouse though.

    Probably both at some point, but will be sticking with the Magic Mouse at the moment as I think £59 is quite a lot for what it is (after having a go with one I will probably end up buying one anyway haha) [​IMG]
