Apple Magic Trackpad

Peripherals
Hi I'm Scott Stein senior associate editor at cnet.com. And this is the new Apple magic track pad Apple's made a lot of multi touch devices recently -- -- the iPhone. Their MacBook and MacBook Pro lines and there -- tremendous multi touch touch bad. -- are also applicable. The people who are left out. Desktop Mac users -- not -- more Apple has made this device to essentially take that multi touch click -- that's on a MacBook or MacBook Pro. Remove it and make it a Bluetooth device for your desktop. That's pretty much exactly what it is for 69 dollars it's not exactly cheap but it does offer some great feel if you're. Used to using a MacBook or MacBook Pro it feels exactly like that but even bigger and it has inertial scrolling which is a new feature on -- MacBook touch -- In addition. It has click zones it has touched -- -- as three finger and forefinger even multi -- all that stuff being used to in the MacBook and MacBook Pro experience. What it's really nice about the design is lies completely flush with the Bluetooth keyboard that comes and IMAX so really feels like one piece type design you could put it right next to it. Or split it apart it actually looks nicer even with that keyboard them without. And that's pretty much -- it accepts double A batteries or rechargeable batteries in fact Apple has released a battery charger. Addressing the fact you're gonna be having a lot of Bluetooth devices between the keyboard attract had an -- house. -- what -- magic track pad is meant to be used on Macs and you're gonna get all that multi touch support on Macs. Apple does say that it works of windows devices -- to play around and see how it works for yourself. You'll also -- its offer update which should be available now which enables all of the track -- Configuration elements. You need that in order to enable touch to tap or click zones or any additional configurations that you want you like you have on your MacBook and MacBook Pro. So for those of you -- never used a MacBook or MacBook Pro large track pad what you're looking at here this entire surface is in multi touch track pad. But also it's all collectible. The bottom part and even the top part is -- of all thanks to the way this -- -- Just like you know so you can move across this -- can also click on it anywhere. -- is meant to replace amounts not exactly although it could for many people certainly. All the multi touch and clicking can be used to the capacity you were using mass. We really do like announced for a lot of its accuracy and we've enjoyed Apple's mice recently quite a bit. It's gonna be up to the user to decide. Certainly they're aiming for this to become a mouse replacement potential in the future we wondered if CNET will Hamas ever really -- leaving is another step towards it. I'm Scott Stein and this is Apple's view magic track --
