I've been using the Magic Trackpad since they came out. They were good in Leopard but amazing in Lion. I have a couple of Magic Mice but I find that using the trackpad is so much better, the mice sit unused on the back of the desk.
I highly recommend the trackpad.

Trackball user since the mid 80's and when I installed Lion I didn't expect to transition too well to a Magic Trackpad. There has been a learning curve but it's really growing on me. Like captfred I'm pretty sure the trackball is going to find its way to the closet soon.

I recently bought a 27" iMac i5 (with Lion preinstalled), with both magic mouse and magic trackpad. I liked the magic mouse but prefer the magic trackpad. My husband is using the mouse now and loves it. I really like the magic trackpad and the way you only have to touch it very lightly to make the various gestures. I can't see me going back to a mouse anytime soon.

Thanks to everyone for their responses.
Unfortunately, my laser mouse died, and I replaced it with the TrackPad hoping to upgrade without the need for another mouse. Although I like most features of the trackpad, like for my MacBook, I find the need for a mouse to add to the onboard track pad.
Same thing applies for the iMac, the trackpad works for most applications, but I got a wireless mouse again. So I find that I use both.
Thanks again to everyone who responded!

Due to recurring hand/wrist RSI, I have been using a Contour RollerMouse Pro for a few years. Ok, so it is somewhat expensive, but it puts all the other Mice and Trackballs that I used previously well and truly in the shade. It won't be useful to anyone who is sold on finger swiping, but IMHO it's still the best Mouse available.
Regards to all.
