Li Xiang got for me 2 presents this year and a short trip to Malaysia for my birthday! The Twelve South MagicWand (Apple Store – Singapore link) which cost S$45 is my first present and the Twelve South BookArc (Apple Store – Singapore link) which cost S$65 is the second present!
I expected the build of the MagicWand to be good or at least made of aluminium, however to my disappointment it is made of plastic. The instructions came in pretty handy this time as it stated not to slide the keyboard or the trackpad in, but to “snap” it in.
The first time I assembled it, I forgot about the “H-beam stabilizer” which is essentially a plastic that is used to hold keyboard and trackpad side by side so that it is more stable.
Removing the keyboard and trackpad from the MagicWand is pretty easy and hence it should not interfere with you changing the batteries of the keyboard or the trackpad.
