A:AnswerNo. It is similar to a touch pad on the laptop. You slide your finger(s) across the surface to move the cursor, fields, etc. You can use other gestures and press movements to open menus typically associated with the mouse or changing screens. I place it next to the keyboard and use it in place of the mouse. It is much more effective than the mouse without the wide range of movements the mouse requires for a 27" monitor.
A:AnswerWell... It is kinda complicated. If the purpose is to use a trackpad on a Windows-only PC, then don't consider this trackpad. You need to install special software which makes it barely work with a few gestures. If you don't install the software, it only accepts clicks, no gestures whatsoever. However, if you are on a Mac and using Bootcamp to run Windows 10, then the trackpad works fine. So it really depends on the scenario.
A:AnswerYes...I’m currently using my 2nd gen Magic Trackpad with a 2012 Mac Mini. Even though Apple says you need a newer Mac with Bluetooth 4.0 it still worked fine with my older Mac. Just plugged it in using the USB cable to to Mac, and it synced up immediately, and has been working fine wireless ever since. I think the requirement for BT4.0 is actually due to BT4.0 being better with power...so their battery life ratings require it.
