    Don't you miss the trackpad ???

    That's my biggest concern, if I hook my notebook up to an external monitor and buy the mac keyboard an mouse I'll loose the benefits of the trackpad... or is the mighty mouse / keyboard combo that good??

    Any comments appreciated.

    I hate trackpads so no, I didn't miss it. I have an iMac now.

    Normally I avoid trackpads at all costs, and use my logitech VX. But with the UMBP, I actually prefer to use the trackpad for most tasks. The gestures in FF3 B2 make browsing so much smoother and faster, I browse the web for 2 hours a day, it saves me time for sure.

    the only thing I like about the trackpad is 2 finger scrolling, other than that mouse all the way. my bt mighty mouse's scroll wheel doesn't work so I use the trackpad to scroll webpages.

    Blow at the scrolling ball whilst spinning it, mine keeps on not scrolling and then I have to do that, so annoying.
