You may think that needing one of the best trackpads could seem a thing of the past nowadays, with many creatives choosing a mouse as the go-to companion to their computers. But trackpads still hold their own appeal. The fact you don't need to use your whole arm when using them means they can be more comfortable than other options. 

The best trackpads come with great features, such as support for multi-touch gestures that allows input for up to five fingers, plus a range of customisable shortcuts to speed up your workflow on common tasks. There are plenty of quality models around, too, and we've pulled the very best together for you here.
