I saw on the question section for the product it will only work with Mac OS X 10.6.4 or higher, but I can't believe that. Surely you can install some driver that will allow it to work with a PC?

My question is why are you using Windows Vista?
It's absolutely terrible.

PS. I'm wondering mainly for basic mouse functions, such as movement, left click and right click. With the exception of page scrolling, I'm less bothered about the gestures.

Thanks

No, it isn't. With SP2 installed, it's a fine OS.

Do you already own a Magic Trackpad? I think you'd have less trouble using something like http://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/touchpad-t650 -- but then again that doesn't say it's supported by Vista either...

While I agree the Vista hate was overblown and SP2 solved any issues, Windows 7 uses less resources.

I think it will work, but you probably have to track down the Bootcamp driver for it.

I don't currently own one though, but if I could use it with my PC and Apple devices then it would be a worthwhile purchase.
