The magic is in the Multi-Touch.
The new Magic Mouse redefines what a mouse should do. In addition to its smooth, seamless top-shell design that acts as one button or two, Magic Mouse features a Multi-Touch surface with gesture support. Scroll vertically, horizontally and diagonally - a full 360 degrees - simply by touching anywhere on the top surface. With a greater surface area for scrolling, you can get around a long timeline in iMovie, through a lengthy web page in Safari or around a set of images in iPhoto more efficiently. You can also swipe through pages in Safari or photos in iPhoto with two fingers. It’s the most advanced Apple mouse ever made.
One or two. Left or right.
The seamless, one-button design of Magic Mouse makes it simple to use, right out of the box. But if you want the functionality of a two-button mouse, that’s easy, too. Just change the configuration in System Preferences. And the ambidextrous construction means Magic Mouse is great for lefties or righties.
Laser tracking engine.
Magic Mouse features a laser tracking engine that’s far more sensitive and responsive on more surfaces than traditional optical technology. That means it can track with precision on nearly every surface with no mouse pad required.
Magic Mouse works wirelessly with your Bluetooth-enabled Mac. When you combine it with the Apple Wireless Keyboard, the result is an untethered and uncluttered work space. Once you pair Magic Mouse with your Mac, you can enjoy a secure and reliable connection from up to 33 feet away.

- Printed documentation
- Mac OS X v10.5.8 or later with Wireless Mouse Software Update 1.0* or Mac OS X v10.6.1 or later with Wireless Mouse Software Update 1.0

Ratings & Reviews
Worst. Mouse. Ever.
If you are going to buy an iMac, take my advice... get the trackpad, NOT the magic mouse...
For me, there is NO comfortable way If you are going to buy an iMac, take my advice... get the trackpad, NOT the magic mouse...
For me, there is NO comfortable way to hold this mouse and I have tried many different ways. It is not ergonomic in the slightest. The movement of the pointer on the screen is far from acceptable when using it.
The one thing I do like about it is the gesture support; very intuitive and useful, but you might as well get the trackpad which is more accurate, comfortable and (at the moment) features more gestures.
If you don't like the trackpad then I would suggest any other standard mouse. If you buy this there's a fair chance your fingers will be aching from the constant attempts to hold this mouse comfortably.
Steer clear and get the magic trackpad instead! …

Battery life disappointment
I bought my Magic Mouse on 21st JUne 2011 and absolutely love it BUT am just about to change the batteries for the second time. I I bought my Magic Mouse on 21st JUne 2011 and absolutely love it BUT am just about to change the batteries for the second time. I am energy aware and turn off appliances when not in use.
I notice that battery life is not mentioned in the specification. Silly me, I just thought it would be superior to the other wireless mice on the market.
Come on Mac Wizards 5 weeks for two AA+ alkaline is really pathetic. …

In fact, I've had two. The first was terrible on many surfaces and only tolerable on a good surface. Tracking was dreadful.
With the second the tracking improved dramatically. Over a period of a few weeks I tried out the Magic Mouse and discovered eventually that I don't really like it. I find it uncomfortable to hold and unwieldly. For me, it's difficult to track accurately.
Much to my surprise I have gone back to my Logitech Vx Nano for Notebooks. It needs a dongle and has it's idiosyncrasies, mostly to do with the roller and the middle key being separate devices, but the tracking is lovely. The mouse is responsive, and this is for a 5 year old mouse.
Sorry Apple, I don't believe you got the design right here. …

SIMPLY THE BEST MOUSE I'VE EVER USED.
Really satisfied with the Magic Mouse, from the multi touch gestures, to the elegant glass surface. The mouse is simply the best m Really satisfied with the Magic Mouse, from the multi touch gestures, to the elegant glass surface. The mouse is simply the best mouse I've ever used, because doing actions on this Magic Mouse with it's unique single button is a lot easier and faster than a normal conventional mouse with 3 buttons. I've had this mouse for almost 2 months now, and the batteries are topping at 50%, meaning I will eventually have to replace the batteries 3 times every year, this is pretty average for a mouse, so I don't see the reasons why this mouse is getting so any bad reviews? …
