Logitech T651 Rechargeable Trackpad for Mac ReviewMon, Mar 18, 2013 - 12:00 AM
A Closer Look At The T651
We’ve had a look at the front in our introduction which is where all the action happens and we’ll talk about performance in a bit, but first we’ll look a bit closer at the other aspects of the T651. All the way around the back side, we find four rubber feet to keep the pad from moving during use and keep the trackpad on an even stance. The only other feature of note on the bottom is the Bluetooth connect button which is highlighted by the instructional sticker. Pushing it puts the device in connection mode for pairing.
On the right edge is a simple sliding power switch which displays an orange color when off and green when on.
On the rear edge (the end that faces away from the user) is the micro-USB port to be used when charging the trackpad.
In terms of size, the Logitech T651 is basically the same size as the Apple Magic Trackpad although there’s a top aluminum strip across the top of the Apple device that’s non-functional as it houses the batteries.
The Magic Trackpad is more elevated in the rear as compared to the T651 which is probably more a product of necessity for battery storage and a desire to match the Apple keyboard where the Logitech’s battery is internal and more compactly stowed.
