“Well wonder no more,” iFixit writes. “Join us as we delve into the deep abyss of Apple’s ocean of magical peripherals to explore the mysterious Magic Trackpad.”
“The Magic Trackpad is the first full desktop trackpad that supports a full set of gestures, including click, scroll, swipe, and rotate, all available at the tip of your fingers,” iFixit reports. “It features the same aluminum design as its wireless keyboard counterpart, allowing for the perfect union of typing and gestures. Let us not forget the main attraction, which is the 0.5 mm thick, capacitive touch, wear-resistant glass surface. That’s all good, but what lies inside?”
iFixit reports, “Check out those square threads! While square threads have the highest mechanical efficiency of all lead screws, their difficulty of manufacturing makes them prohibitive for most applications. Kudos, Apple, for sweating the details.”
