Hi,

This question is for any macbook pro or air user: Do you use a mouse or just the trackpad?

If you use just the trackpad, do you use it for design too?

I guess this question is valid for iMac or mini users that have a trackpad, do you use a mouse besides it? I’m asking because I am on the break of using a trackpad exclusively, but there are things that make me reach out for a mouse.

Thanks

I use a mouse. Feel like I have more control over the cursor.

What? You got the MBP already? Wasn’t that like 3-4 weeks shipping? :P

ON: definitely a mouse and I’ll need to test that Magic Mouse as I’d like to get one, but I’m very picky when it comes to mice.

It’s probably something similar with using a tablet. It’s all nice and kewl because it’s compact and all that.. but after you are using it a long time and then you come back to a desktop/normal mouse with buttons and stuff… It’s like WOW , I’m so much faster at everything!

No not yet. I use the old model MBP at work. Still waiting on mine to be dispatched! :’(

Very good approach. I’ve been doing the exact same thing. But I tried with this thread to see if there’s anyone exclusive with the trackpad in design or something similar.
