The sizable and extremely usable trackpad on Apple’s MacBooks means most users won’t ever have to even consider using a mouse with them. And with the introduction of their external ‘Magic’ Trackpad last year, iMac users can enjoy a similar experience. But if you want using your iMac to feel as close to using your MacBook as possible, and are willing to cough up $135+ in addition to the cost of Apple’s Wireless Keyboard and Magic Trackpad, head on over to thodio who will happily take your money in exchange for their MacDec dock.
Machined from 15mm thick nut or teak wood, or transparent acrylic, the MacDec has the same general shape of a 15-inch MacBook Pro, and uses 8 powerful neodymium magnets to securely hold the Wireless Keyboard and Magic Trackpad in place. It’s also got a set of 4 clear rubber feet on the underside to keep the whole thing from sliding around on your desk or on your lap, and ranges in price from ~$135 (€99) for the wood versions, to ~$163 (€119) for the acrylic. And hopefully you’re not just paying for a first year 3D animation student’s render.
