Apple on Tuesday unveiled its Magic Trackpad, a multitouch trackpad for desktop computers.

Intended for Mac users, the peripheral uses the same technology as the trackpad on the MacBook Pro (which, drawing from personal experience, is quite lovely) -- that means all the gestures. Like the MacBook, the entire thing is a button, and clicks accordingly.

The wireless device connects to a Mac using Bluetooth, and is about twice the size of a laptop trackpad. It's made in the same aluminum style as Apple's latest keyboard, meaning there's plenty of design continuity when they're sitting side by side on your desk.

If you weren't convinced by the Magic Mouse, this might do the trick. It's available now for $69.
