    I've been searching around for a non-wireless magic trackpad or similar (using usb instead of wire-less technology), and found nothing. I'd most like an external keyboard that includes a magic trackpad. It needs to be non-wireless though.

    The reasons are:
    1. I'm starting to get problems using the keyboard/trackpad on my macbook pro (strange tingeling/numbing sensations)

    2. I've got an additional monitor and will want to use that as my main monitor

    Isn't it strange that a combination-product with the magic trackpad and keyboard already exists from Apple? Or that the magic trackpad is not sold as a non-wireless option? There must be a pretty big market for these products..

    Any suggestions?

    On the fence
    The only magic trackpad available is wireless. You can get a wired keyboard, but not trackpad.

    Thanks for the fast reply - strangely no real competition to the trackpad out there yet!

    I seem to think somebody modded theirs to work off usb.Probably wouldn't be too difficult.

    I have seen it, but I believe the modification was for power only, it still used Bluetooth to talk.
