Apple Magic Trackpad
Advantages: Good swiping movements
I originally had just the magic mouse which had all the swiping movements on it that i thought fitted well with the Mac, then when i saw this come out i knew i was going to get it for many different reasons, that it would look good on my desk with all other accessories and that it would perform well with the swipes.
Due to the new update (OS X Lion), they have added a lot more actions that you can do. The sort of movements you can do are for example:
Press down anywhere on the Multi-Touch surface to physically click or double-click. Or, with "Tap to Click" enabled in System Preferences, simply tap or double-tap the surface.
Brush two fingers along the Multi-Touch surface to scroll in any direction -- vertically, horizontally or diagonally.
Using three fingers, brush left and right along the Multi-Touch surface to page forward and back.
With your thumb and index finger on the Multi-Touch surface, twist clockwise or anticlockwise to rotate an image.
With all these new actions you can do, you can move round the mac much quicker for example instead of clicking back on Safari, you can just swipe backwards and then it does it.
Battery life in it are very good with the Apple batteries.
Definitely worth getting, good to change from the mouse to this every now and then.
Summary: Looks good and operates well
