A Quick Tip by TeamAWAC

  • Jul 28, 2010
I find the multi-touch gestures on the Apple laptops incredibly intuitive, but I'm not quite sure I'm ready to go 100% trackpad on the desktop.  Maybe when my beloved Logitech VX dies on me, I'll give it a try...

I have been intrigued with the Mac Trackpad ever since it first came out, and finally decided to give it a try. I spend a lot of hours in front of a computer every day, and this handy and elegant peripheral seemed like an ideal gadget that could take away some stress from my poor forearm and wrist.

And because the entire surface is a button that clicks, you can use it in place of a mouse without losing a hint of functionality. The Magic Trackpad's full set of gestures includes two-finger scrolling, pinching to zoom, rotating with your fingertips, three-finger swiping, and activating Expose or switching between applications with four fingers.

Plus, the trackpad is customizable. Simply access the Magic ...
