I knew it was going to happen sometime. Ever since I started using my MacBook Pro’s trackpad a whole lot more while mobile, every time I went to use my mouse at my desktop the experience was almost annoying. I blame the surface resistance of my desk which was probably not the best to begin with. Don’t worry, my MX Revolution has a home: a trackpad could never be used for FPS.
Now I’m spoiled. The glass of the Magic Trackpad is beyond smooth and, by comparison, my first gen MacBook Pro without a glass touchpad feels sticky and inadequate. Bugger.
At first, the gentleness with which you touch the surface is almost annoying and stress inducing but, I’m now two days in and am starting to enjoy it. I previously used hot corners for Exposé but have since disabled them so I can train myself to use four finger gestures [yeah... MacBook Pro 1,1 with a Core Duo... no Lion yet].
So far, I’m happy and am flying through web pages and windows like I always dreamt I would but I think I’m still deciding whether or not I could live without it. Perhaps in a month I’ll deprive myself and see what I really think. I’m thinking it will be like Apple keyboards which are all spaced exactly the same and all feel like home… anything else just freaks me out.
