Have you made the transition from the mouse to the trackpad?




This question is mainly for previous Windows users who later became a Mac user, like me.

I came to use a computer pretty late in my life. The first computer I ever used was a bulky machine loaded with Windows 2000, when I was in junior high, probably. You know, the ones with a mouse wired to the machine. And I've been a Windows user ever since, until this year. Not that it means anything, but a couple of days after Steve Jobs' passing away, my Lenovo finally gave up. So I got a 13" Macbook Pro, and started using the trackpad. And I have to say that I love the trackpad on the Mac, as, I'm sure, many people out there do. Slowly, I'm switching from the mouse to the trackpad and I don't see myself turning back to the mouse for daily use. Don't get me wrong, I love my wireless Rapoo. It's the best mouse I've ever used on Windows computers. But the trackpad does so much more than the mouse(including the magic mouse, based on using it for a while in the local Apple store). With a giant, responsive trackpad, my fingers can do so much more than they otherwise can with a mouse. Maybe a lot of people may disagree with me on the Magic mouse, but I just feel that you can't use as much gestures on the Magic mouse as you can on the trackpad(including the external trackpad).

Anyway, that's just how I feel about the trackpad on the Mac. Let's hear what you guys think, and have you switched from a normal mouse to the trackpad?
