a poor man's trackpad (Magic Trackpad)

So, I got a poorman's multi-touch trackpad for my desktop computer, an Apple Magic Trackpad from Apple Online Store (Australia).

Magic Trackpad

The multi-touch in MacBook Pro worked pretty well for me in many situations. Although there are situations where mouse works better. It does not harm to add a trackpad to my desktop. So I can use either the mouse or trackpad. (this is the Don approved part: having the extra option.)

When I am on my MacBook Pro, I found myself using the trackpad's two fingers features quite often, such as scrolling, rotating, zooming (pinch open and close). Somehow I don't use the three fingers or four fingers features often (well, I am not that advanced like Don). I guess I can try those three/four fingers features more often.

Somehow, I am fine with just two fingers on my old PS/2 ball mouse, or my laptop trackpad for that matter.
So how many mice, or now should I say pointing devices, does that make?

You have lots of gadgets. PDA, camcorder etc.

As usual, you didn't answer my question.
Posted by Don_HH2K on 10 August 2010 10:49 PM.
Well, you use up to two pointing devices on a system.
I just gave my desktop computer the same option.

As usual, you still didn't answer my question.

I answered!

I asked how many mice/pointing devices you had (i.e. from your photo vs. my photo), not how many you are using with your iMac.

Well, Sorry that you know I don't speak English, I guess I did not understand your question.
Anyhow, I assume you are referring to , in such case,
you can add this Magic Trackpad to the list.
