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

  • 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!

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.

Its seamless scrolling and regal multi-touch gestures works like a charm. I was disappointed by the battery life, and it is prone to fail if you abuse it, but it is worth it all. It is quite simply the best mouse for the mac.

    Initially the mouse worked fine together with the charger. Of late it has increasingly lost contact and it is now impossible to us Initially the mouse worked fine together with the charger. Of late it has increasingly lost contact and it is now impossible to use. Fortunately I have a trackpad but my preference is for a mouse that works! For the cost involved the situation is very disappointing to say the least and I am reluctant to purchase a replacement, and presumably another charger.
    Not what I expect from Apple.

    I've only been using this mouse for a few days and it is brilliant. It's fast, responsive, has useful features and feels great. I I've only been using this mouse for a few days and it is brilliant. It's fast, responsive, has useful features and feels great. I love the ease with which I can scroll, zoom etc. I've been a lifelong windows user and only just got a macbook pro- and it's great. I've used a lot of mice with windows (logitech, microsoft, kensington... windows 8 mice, scrolling mice, rollerballs, ... And this mac mouse is a lot better. It is different to a windows mouse, I'm using it almost more like a mix between a trackpad (being able to use gestures on the back) and a mouse- so the flatness relative to PC mice (which have to fit more into my cupped hand, and don't provide trackpad style usage) is great.
