OS X comes with a multitouch gesture technology that allows users to access some features on Mac. For Mac desktop, this feature is not included, but you can buy it separately. It is called Magic trackpad.

Magic mouse doesn’t have the complete multitouch ability as a magic trackpad, and for that reason, users are limited, because for some features, multitouch gesture is required.
