    Is it a good time to buy the trackpad? Any indication of apple adding force touch to a new model?

    Highly doubtful they'll redesign it. If you're unsure, just buy one secondhand. I'm sure you can get a good deal on a used one.

    It'll be years until they redesign the Magic Trackpad. Hell, it'll be years until they redesign the Magic Mouse and Wireless Keyboard, too.

    I don't think anyone other than Apple can give you a definitive answer.

    TBH I think an update might be coming soon, because with the Force Touch-only features packed into OS X, the desktops (iMac, Mac Pro, Mac Mini...) are left out because they don't have a built-in trackpad that has Force Touch, and the magic trackpad is the only gateway to Force Touch goodness for those machines.

    I just bought the new wedge style track pad today and am very disappointed. At 141 dollars out the door with tax, I thought it would be the end all. As it turn out, it is NOT capable of doing single finger, double click scrolling with El Capitan which was a great feature with the MacBook trackpad a decade ago. The whole mechanical system also feels quite clunky. How they could eliminate that double click scrolling feature is beyond comprehension. I am returning it tomorrow. This track pad is a miss in my book.
