Product Information

  • 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 mousepad required.

    Bluetooth technology.

    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 workspace. Once you pair Magic Mouse with your Mac, you can enjoy a secure and reliable connection from up to 33 feet away.

Its unreal how elegant it looks on my desk, but what is trully remarkable, is just how intuitive it really is. The MT serface is so sensitive, it reacts so fluidly, you would almost think it is a true extension of you.

    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!

The two finger swipe to switch between full screen apps is an awesome feature. Great scroll, no complaints!

  • Moves easily with a few household supplies. Two finger swipes not good.

    thic Put clear packing tape, cut to fit, on the rails.

    Take a smooth mousepad and tape a notepad (8" x 6") of about 30 sheets
    thickness to the mousepad.

    Put the Magic Mouse on it and it moves around effortlessly like a mouse should!

    I know you shouldn't have to do this for the mouse to work so I deduct one star from five.

    In addition, the two finger swipe isn't easy if your fingers and the mouse aren't completely clean and dry.

    One finger swipes are fine though and I find myself using those a lot more often.

    On a more positive note, battery life is good but then again I am using the more expensive Energizer Advanced
    AA alkaline batteries. In 5 days the battery has gone from 100% to 88% which isn't bad at all. If it declines
    by 12% every 5 days that means it should last at least a month. The employee at the Apple Store
    said alkaline batteries last about a month. There are always rechargeables or Lithium batteries too.

    It looks nice and matches well with my computer. Aesthetically pleasing.. elegant. Matches very
    well with my Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad and Mac mini.

    Scrolling is a wonder and effortless. I like tapping it with two fingers to bring up Mission Control.
    Flipping through photos by moving one finger from left to right is easy.

    Using a two finger swipe is an annoyance though (to bring up Dashboard). I suppose that is
    what the friction-filled rails are for...to keep the mouse steady as you swipe with two fingers
    but that sacrifices movement and most of the time we don't need to bring up Dashboard.

    Perhaps my next purchase will be the Magic Trackpad as I believe that is the future for non-gamers
    like me who only check email, lightly browse and view the occasional YouTube video.

    It's a great mouse for a laptop but for a desktop it just feels like it is lacking. Sure, I have it working
    effortlessly right now but I shouldn't have had to rig it to make it work like it should have done
    straight out of the box.

    Apple products are wonderful and I am a big fan but their mice leave something to be desired.
    There is some room for improvement.

    Everything else Apple makes is top notch.. no doubts about that. :-)

    My advice: go for the Trackpad or do like I did and use clear tape and the notepad trick
    to make it glide along with ease.
