The Good The glass-topped Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 has a large multitouch surface, and works seamlessly with all types of Windows 8 devices.
The Bad The charging cable and USB receiver are extra parts to deal with, and Mac functionality is severely limited.
The Bottom Line The Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 makes it easy to add a standalone touch pad to your Windows 8 tablet or desktop, but mimicking touch-screen gestures is still an imperfect experience.
Multitouch gestures on any Windows 8 PC, tablet
There's an awful lot ofgoing on with gadgets this year. The idea of the touch pad is nothing new to laptop users, but it's only recently that many have come to see it as giving a . Part of that comes from Windows 8 and its emphasis on gesture and touch control, and part comes from Apple's excellent touch-pad implementation in MacBooks, which have outshone their PC competition in this department for years.
To that end, we've seen an increasing number of all-in-one desktops, including new models from Vizio and Hewlett-Packard, include standalone touch pads rather than a mouse, and Logitech has the standalone $79 Touchpad Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 for those who want to make the leap with their existing setup.
A glass-topped matte black square, the 5.25-inch-by-5.1-inch T650 looks and feels a lot like Apple's excellent. The Apple version has a barrel-like top edge, which houses a battery and holds the pad at a steeper angle. In contrast, the T650 is nearly flat, and has an internal rechargeable battery.
