Do you want to use a trackpad on your desktop?
You would think that one of the luxuries of using a desktop over a laptop was that you could use a mouse rather than a trackpad, but Apple doesn't see it that way.
Today Apple unveiled the "Magic Trackpad," which is essentially desktop version of the multitouch trackpad found on all of the company's current MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops, but with 80 percent more real estate.
For those with very limited space on their desks (as in, not even enough room for a mousepad), this could be a good solution. It even supports more multitouch gestures than the Magic Mouse.
The Magic Trackpad sells for $69, same as the Magic Mouse and Bluetooth keyboard. It'll work on Windows too with the right drivers.
Interestingly enough, Apple's figured out that users of its Bluetooth keyboard, Magic Mouse and now the Magic Trackpad go through a lot of AA batteries. The company is now offering its own rechargeable batteries with a low-discharge, much like Sanyo's Eneloops.
The battery charger boasts a very low standby power draw, so that's a selling feature for those who just like to leave their chargers plugged in all the time.
The charger along with 6 batteries is $29.
