    So does anyone have one of these:

    I was in Best Buy over the weekend and picked one up. It's just a big oversized version of the trackpad on the Macbooks but after using it on my iMac, it grew on me very fast. It really is much better than I thought it was going to be.

    I guess its just another one those things that you don't appreciate until you use it for a few days.

    Interesting. I'm not a huge trackpad fan, but I may just try one out.

    Honestly, I didn't think I was going to like it when I tried it out in the store. When I got it home and started applying the finger gestures to my every day tasks, I was able to do things much quicker.

    I need to drop by an Apple store and see if they have them out to try. I saw them in Best Buy but there weren't any out where you could play with them.

    Littleton,...
    I have been looking for them for a few days. Both my local Apple and Best Buy did not have them.

    I have the smaller version on my laptop and absolutely love it, specifically for Expose, scrolling, zooming, and rotating. If my BD player didn't handle almost every format I throw at it, I would consider getting one to control a HTPC.
