    I have been doing a lot of reading on this trackpad, watching review videos, and decided to go ahead and pull the trigger on getting this. I was using a Logitech MX Master wireless mouse and loved it. I have had trouble with other mice being to small for my hand and having wrist pain because of this. The Logitech cured this issue but I have been logging some long hours on the MacBook Pro every day with the new office job and really wanted to take advantage of all the time saving and efficient gestures offered on the trackpad. I have been using the trackpad for almost a week now for roughly 6-7 hours each day and I have to admit, it certainly took some getting used to, especially with the force touch. I had to tweak the click settings but after getting some time logged using it, it has become quite easy to figure out. From what I have seen, this has been the biggest issue people complain about, the click and force touch setting. Trust me, once you tweak the setting that works best for you and get some time on it, clicking and dragging is no problem. The other big advantage to this is the rechargeable battery. After a week of use, I am sitting around 90% battery left. I am pretty happy with the battery life on this. Of course, time will tell how well and how long the battery will continue to hold its charge. Lastly, lets talk comfort. So, after a long week, I have been experiencing a little discomfort with using this. It could be due to the fact that it is a new position for me and the position of the trackpad. This trackpad does sit at a shallower angle than the previous generation trackpad. Overall, I think I will get used to it and it won't be a comfort issue. Hope this review answers some questions I know I had when I was looking. Cheers!

    Don't miss my mouse one bit.

    My mouse was getting really old and starting to work poorly even with regular cleaning, so I was in the market for a new one. As I am a Mac user, I went to the Apple site to see if they had anything, and I happened upon the Apple Magic Trackpad 2. I frequently have to use a computer at work, so I was also having some repetitive stress issues, and the idea of not having to grip a mouse appealed to me. All the same, I was apprehensive about moving away from a mouse for two reasons: 1) I wasn't sure I could easily perform all the same functions (click and drag, for example) without any buttons; and 2) I was worried the new trackpad might not be compatible with my older iMac (early 2009). Happily, I can report that neither of these things proved to be a problem. The trackpad allows one to perform all the actions you would do with a mouse by letting you press down to simulate a click. Pressing with two fingers is a right-click. Even clicking and dragging is easy to do using two fingers. Additionally, I have had no issues with connectivity with my iMac, and so far the battery seems to have a long life. I have only had to charge it (by connecting it to the computer with a USB cable) about once every two weeks. All in all, it was a great purchase and well worth the price. I have even experienced less discomfort in my wrists. I will most likely buy another trackpad rather than a mouse when this one dies.

    This is simply the best computer peripheral I have ever used. So much so, I don't even want to use my mouse anymore. It is about a size of a small paperback book. It has plenty of surface area. It also has an internal battery which lasts about 30 days. You charge it using the lightning cable which is provided (you can use it while charging). It can use either the bluetooth or the lightning cable for connectivity to the Mac. I did find this trackpad to be tad more responsive when connected by a lightning cable. But bluetooth responsiveness is more than adequate. To me, the magic of this trackpad is with the subtleties. It is incredibly responsive to the touch. In fact, you learn to relax your fingers a bit because that seems to work better. Unlike the previous generation, this can also track different pressures you put on. Pinch and zooming, which works on Chrome as well as Safari, is a delightful experience. From my experience, once you get used to this trackpad, the amount of effort to utilize it decreases and it will become second nature and you will wonder how you have ever used your Mac without it. Pros: 1)Large. About the size of a small paperback book. 2)Smooth and highly responsive. 3)Pressure sensitive. Good tactile feel. 4)Beautiful. 5)Long battery life (30 days). 6)Works with both lightning connector or bluetooth. 7)Works with Parallels. I can use it with Windows and Linux which are part of my Parallels virtual machines. Cons: 1)Not cheap. 2)Works only with Mac (as far as I know).

    Best Magic Trackpad yet...Careful it's fragile

    For years we've used and come to love the square metal Magic Trackpad. Then apple decided that the trackpad needs to be better and wider and they introduced it on their new macbooks. But not stopping there, they also made the Magic Trackpad 2 a better and wider luxury device. The only thing it is lacking is the ability to use the apple pencil on the trackpads. Hurry up with that Apple! So now we have this gorgeous magic rectangle that does all the things we're used to with a larger surface area, provided force touch *drooling*, and covered it with what feels like glass. The surface is so smooth compared to the last one it makes me wonder what they were thinking with the last generation. It also is rechargeable and the battery lasts a long while. Not nearly as long as the magic keyboard but I still haven't charged it from when I opened it on May 12th. Today the battery is at 36% so still a long way to go before needing a recharge. A big reason I decided to upgrade to the Magic Trackpad 2 is that I was having bluetooth connectivity issues with the last gen trackpad and my 2016 MBP. This model has zero of those issues, has better response with much less lag, and is far more accurate with the pressure sensitivity all really important in my field of work.

    Excellent Professional Trackpad

    Please ignore those handful of complaints out there about the pad being quirky or it needing a different kind of tap. This is a larger pad than you've probably been working with, much lower profile than the last iteration and is totally programmable to suit your style: from speed of clicks, to weight of hand, to hot spots. I use with MacBook Air because typing over the built-in trackpad is more exciting than I can stand (lol). To turn off built-in pad when Magic Pad is on (did someone really get paid to come up with that name?), go into Preferences/Accessibility/Ignore Built-In Trackpad. Easy as pie. For a trackpad user in Photoshop, this is the bomb! Right now I've used it daily for two plus weeks and battery is just down to 98%. I know I know... it's new. Eventually the battery will fink out... but there is ifixit possibilities out there too! This is a well engineered tool, in line with the best of Apple's products. (I don't review their phones after the 6s and I'm just a regular guy who photographs and writes.) Enjoy!

    After more than six years of nearly 24/7 running it was deemed more cost beneficial to replace the iMac with the current version. This meant replacing the Trackpad with a Trackpad 2. The newer version has more width - more rectangular shape than square. Whether time had resulted in my original Trackpad slowing down I cannot say but the Trackpad 2 is certainly more responsive and much easier to tap for copy and paste. One thing I liked about my previous iMac keyboard and Trackpad was the lack of cables. Unfortunately Apple decided to make both items use an internal battery that charges via lightning cable. The supplied charging cables are about 3 feet in length. Since the charge does not last near as long as the AA batteries they used to use, I found that I had to move the keyboard and Trackpad 2 closer to the iMac until I can buy longer lightning cables to reach the normal position I had in my desk set up. It is worth buying, just not quite as "free" in placement for use as it used to be.

    I have been putting off buying the Trackpad 2 since it came out. I decided to take the plunge and spend the $129...and I am very happy I did. The trackpad is incredibly easy to use, but the big thing is it has so many gestures you can use. I have been using the Magic Mouse 2, which is a great product, but to have the ability to use gestures is a real time saver. After 2 days of heavy use, I wish I had purchased this sooner. It was still a hard $129 pill to swallow, wish the price was lower, but this was a solid buy. If you use multiple monitors, it is extremly helpful when covering that much "real estate". My hand no longer keeps hitting the top of my keyboard tray because my hand rests nicely on my mouse pad wrist rest and my fingers can do all the work. This is very easy on the wrists, especially if you have issues there. Would have given 5 stars if price was under $100.

    Wireless incarnation of the best trackpad around

    I've always loved the Apple trackpads on my laptops, so it was a natural progression that I ended up trying the original Magic Trackpad. I prefer to use it to a mouse, though I still have both in my setup. This follow-up version is great. The built-in battery makes more sense than having to worry about cycling rechargeable ones, though when it dies you either have a wired keyboard with the charging cable or you have to get it replaced. The charging cable makes pairing it a snap, too. I easily had it and my Magic Keyboard up and going in under a minute when I first bought them. Force touch is really handy and is why I replaced my original trackpad. It also helps with Apple stuff that it holds its value and I take care of my stuff for resale later. My only complaint is that the build looks cheap: white instead of brushed aluminum. But if you're into looks it does keep with the color scheme of the white cables. Bottom line is I love it and I would buy it again if something happened to it.
