If you’re a Mac user and you yearn to use a numeric keypad, then look no further. Mobee’s Magic Numpad might look flimsy, but it will transform your Apple Magic Trackpad into a numeric keypad thanks to the accompanying software.
Let’s get this out of the way – if you bought an Apple computer, part of why you bought is its appearance. There’s no denying that. I own a MacBook, and even though it’s the white plastic one I still like how it looks compared to other laptops.
This computer-in-a-keyboard casemod owes at least a nod to from the Asus EeeKeyboard (or at least the Commodore 64). Bart Reardon’s MacBook Air Project is working to combine the brains of a MacBook Air with the aluminum body Apple keyboard and a Magic Trackpad.
Under the hood of this nifty little box is a fully-functional Mac with 1.6Ghz
Remember that Apple trackpad we thought was coming a few weeks back? Well we were right with our intelligence on the hardware, just wrong on the date. The good news is that the hardware is real, and you can buy it right now.
The new Magic Trackpad works wirelessly with your desktop Mac via Bluetooth, adding multitouch gestures for interacting with objects on screen, scrolling through long web pages, flipping pages in electronic books, and more.
The trackpad is about the same height as the Mac aluminum keyboards, making it 80 percent larger than trackpads on MacBook Pros, and giving you plenty of real-estate for multiple fingers.
