Hi, So this will be a strange question, I work really well sitting on my couch and prior to buying a Macbook pro. I Used my windows laptop with the mouse right on the top panel. Now it did wear the plastic coating off, seeing I'm now using a macbook pro and not a cheap plastic computer I need to ask the pro's. Has anyone used there magic mouse the same way. Here's a picture to help show what i'm trying to explain, I can't wreck this computer and if my only solution is a mousepad then that's perfect.
