    Magic Trackpad 2.

    Hi all,
    I have the original Magic Trackpad which is glitchy at times, I can still buy the original version but I'm wondering about buying Magic Trackpad 2, I'm really undecided.

    Has anyone moved from the original to version 2 and what is your opinion?

    The new Magic Trackpad 2 is better than the old Magic Trackpad in every way. It's bigger, it's sturdier, the rechargeable lithium-ion battery is built right in, and it supports the same next-generation Force Touch technology found in the latest MacBooks. But all of that comes at a cost. For $129, you have to really want it.

    That's about all I know about it.

    Yes the price is a big consideration, The original one is cheaper now, I still can't decide though

    I finally made the move to the Magic Trackpad 2 this morning and I'm so glad I did, The difference between the two is like night and day.
    Loving the Force click.
