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

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. …

Apple Magic Mouse
It amazes me how Apple can design such beautifully engineered products and then design this. Ergonomically it is a failure. I boug It amazes me how Apple can design such beautifully engineered products and then design this. Ergonomically it is a failure. I bought it to use for graphic design projects yet within a couple of hours my hand was so uncomfortable I had to revert to the normal Apple Mouse (which is much better). It's almost as if the part of the mouse that's supposed to fill your hand has been cut off. Casual or on the move use only. …

It could be better....
This mouse is OK. It is well-designed, sleek, smooth, with good functionality, but why on Earth does it connect via Bluetooth?! Th This mouse is OK. It is well-designed, sleek, smooth, with good functionality, but why on Earth does it connect via Bluetooth?! The most insecure connection ever!

Battery is bad. Bluetooth disconnects.
Battery should be better! New batteries needed 2 times a month!
And the bluetooth-connection disconnects really easily. For exam Battery should be better! New batteries needed 2 times a month!
And the bluetooth-connection disconnects really easily. For example, if I shake my table by accident and the mouse "jumps" because of that, bluetooth will disconnect. This happens 2-3 times a day.
Design should be more robust! …
