Forum Question: Trackpad for Imac?

Have been happy with my magic mouse for iMac, but Lion seems to scream out “Trackpad”! Would I be better to get a trackpad now with
Lion and iMac? Can I do the same things with the mouse? What would you suggest?

    Watch today’s episode (out soon). It shows you that you can do a lot more with the Magic Trackpad than with the Magic Mouse. The mouse gives you a few simple gestures, whereas the trackpad gives you the full set.
    Of course, those are just gestures. There isn’t anything you can’t do with a mouse and keyboard. It is just easier to use gestures.
    Whether to upgrade to a Magic Trackpad is up to you. Depends on your needs/wants and budget.

    I like your new trackpad, however, I cannot give up the mouse for one reason… which is important to me. With the mouse I am able to switch desk tops by moving two fingers from side to side. I cannot do this with the trackpad. Sure hope this is available with some future upgrade.

    Thanks for the consideration.
