They say once you go Mac
you’ll never go back, but when the going gets tough, you can always use a good old cheap Windows machine.
Apple’s Magical Magic Trackpad introduced July of last year allows Mac users to use touch gestures on desktop Macs as they normally do on a mobile computer. Using the trackpad instead of mouse is much more intuitive specially if you own a laptop, but the problem is that that Apple’s Trackpad is not compatible by default with any version of Windows, you may need to install the bootcamp driver manually to use it on a PC. This is the only way non-Mac users can enjoy using a trackpad on a PC, but that is soon to be over with Logitech’s new wireless touchpad.
Featured on TechCrunch, Logitech Wireless Touchpad is the trackpad for rest of the PC world. It may not have that slick form factor as its Mac counterpart, but at $50 price tag, it’s a cheaper alternative specially if it also works with the Mac. The device works with Logitech’s Unified Reciever that allows users to use up to five wireless device with a single USB dongle. It runs on a single AA battery, and could last up to four months on a single charge. The design inherits that look common to Logitech branded peripherals except for that white base. Logitech’s Wireless Touchpad may look cheap, but for $19 less, this device is a good alternative to the Magic Trackpad.
Sad to say.. On a Facebook post Logitech confirmed that this device will be PC only.
