Redesigned and rechargeable, Magic Trackpad 2 includes a built-in battery and brings Force Touch to the desktop for the first time. Four force sensors underneath the trackpad surface allow you to click anywhere, and detect subtle differences in the amount of pressure you apply, bringing increased functionality to your fingertips and enabling a deeper connection to your content. Magic Trackpad 2 also features an edge-to-edge glass surface area that is nearly 30 percent larger than the previous trackpad. This design, along with a lower profile, makes scrolling and swiping through your favorite content more productive and comfortable than ever.
Magic Trackpad 2 pairs automatically with your Mac, so you can get to work right away. And the battery will power your Magic Trackpad 2 for about a month or more before needing a recharge.

Awesome upgrade, almost too simplistic. The Magic Trackpad 2 is the trackpad I’ve been waiting for. Ever since Force Touch was introduced on the MacBook Pro, I knew it would eventually make its way over to the desktop. It still doesn’t have a ton of practical uses, but being able to quickly research words has been very valuable since I’m still in college and I’m researching constantly.
Having a rechargeable battery is very nice, and removes the need for me to get rechargeable AA batteries. By removing the click pads and the batteries at the top, it’s now easy to click anywhere on the trackpad. This will definitely change how I use the trackpad, as I’ve always used my thumb to click since it’s near the bottom. Now I don’t have to do this to click easily. For me the nicest feature, however, is being able to silence the click. It still makes a little bit of noise from the haptic engine, but it is much less annoying when I’m clicking back and forth many times on research papers. Overall, the Magic Trackpad 2 was a solid purchase for me, and it will be in use for a long time in my house.
