Mouse vs. Magic Trackpad

I use a MacBook for Photoshop and Illustrator and was thinking of getting an Apple Magic Trackpad, as opposed to a mouse.
Does anyone use a trackpad and find it easier or harder to work with than a mouse?
Any info appreciated.

I don’t use Apple but I never liked using trackpads- it’s either mouse or pen!

I use apple and am very happy with the magic mouse for the regular computer or the touchpad on the macbook-they dont have buttons so are very smooth to work with!
