The good: Compact, clean design; responsive multitouch gestures work as smoothly as they do on a MacBook; offers a mouse-free alternative for users who don't have space for a mouse.
The bad: Clickable buttons at corners don't work well if Trackpad isn't placed on a hard surface; limited software customization.
The bottom line: Apple's Magic Trackpad offers all the functionality of a MacBook clickpad in a standalone Bluetooth device. For most people, however, it's not worth the pricey upgrade over an existing mouse.
