I am wondering whether it is possible to install a Razer Switchblade UI trackpad into a mac.
I've always wanted those LCD ones that looks like concept keyboards.

Something like this:

To be short... no, but humor us... what Mac are you referring too?
And please tell us why, as trackpads on Macs are the best ones around.

Okay first off, if you're going to be a "fluffy teddy bear" about it, don't reply. Silence is golden, either help or keep your "humor" to yourself.
I don't really care if the trackpads on macs are the best around. I liked the idea of a "concept" looking keyboard, something like the optimus Maximus.

Short answer, no. Long answer, maybe, if the trackpad is the exact, and I mean exact in every dimension, size as the factory trackpad. Once the hardware is there, then you have to figure out how to get it to work with the software.

So essentially, no.
