What is the battery life, and since Apple has removed the track ball and replaced it with multi-touch, How long will the multi-touch last, The original Mighty Mouses' track ball would get filled with junk very quickly, Are there any ports or ways that dirt may slow down or mess up the new Magic Mouse?

Can you pair a MacBook Pro with 2 of these so you can have one at work and one at home and not have to carry the paired one with you everywhere?
I take my laptop to work with me each day and packing up my wireless keyboard and magic mouse each day to take them with me is getting annoying. Therefore I would like to know if its possible to have 2 magic mice both paired to the laptop.
This would mean I could then leave one at work and one at home and remove all the hassle. Also if this is possible do you have to break the pairing with the other one as I would not want to have to keep pairing the devices each time I get to work or back home in the evening.
Is the magic mouse as accurate as a wired mouse?
Is the new Magic Mouse as accurate as a wired mouse?
I work on an 8 Core Mac Pro on two ACD 30"s in CS4 and FCPro and find the previous wireless mouse is too sloppy and slow to use in detailed work. But I would love this new one if it is a fast and as accurate as the wired mouse that Apple ship.

Scroll with inertia or momentum?
I have 2 Macs(a mac mini and iMac) coming with 2 magic mice. Both machines are running Snow Leopard. The strange thing is that on one machine 'System Preference' -> 'Mouse' it says 'Scroll with/withou INERTIA', but on the other one it says 'Scroll with/without MOMENTUM'. Anybody knows why that is?!?!?!?

Can the preferences be set so that the available gestures match those on the current MacBook Pro track pad?
I recently purchased a MacBook Pro and enjoy the gestures available on the track pad. The Magic Mouse looks like a great accessory, but I'm sure it would be frustrating going back and forth between the track pad and mouse if the gestures and very different between the two. Hopefully the preference settings can be used to make them very similar.

What is the best method and position to use the Magic Mouse?
To start, I am currently a PC user, and I hate it. PCs drive me nuts. I will be purchasing an Apple computer in the near future most likely a MacBook pro and will also purchase a large monitor so I can see it easier. So far, I'm very satisfied with Apple as I have an iPhone 4. I am very interested in this mouse and have several questions about this mouse.
Do I have to move my finger on the mouse to move the pointer, or is it like a regular mouse where I move the mouse and the pointer moves?
Since the entire top surface of the mouse is a touch screen if I hold the magic mouse like a regular mouse with my palm touching the back will that cause a problem?
I noticed on the MBP, if I tap with two fingers that is the equivalent of a right click, is that same in the magic mouse?
Thank you for answering my questions and I look forward to not having a PC anymore!!!
