    A great mouse

    • Written by from ILKLEY

    I find this to be a great, intuitive mouse. You can configure and adjust the right/left click, sensitivity and speed etc. The scrolling and page navigation is great.

    I never turn the mouse off (although it might have a sleep function) and it has only used a 2 sets of battery's in the 6 months that I have had it. I use Duracell Procell and this might be a fix for others who seem to have very poor battery life issues.

    Better than anything else

    • Written by from Bodmin

    Having been a PC Gamer for many years I have used more mice with more configurations, sizes and designs than the majority of computer users.
    The Magic Mouse is perhaps one of the best mice ever created for those that want to do anything except gaming.

    It feels great in the hand, the surface is perfect for scrolling with and the battery lasts pretty well considering all it is capable of.

    However, it is the most atrocious device for any kind of gaming. If you intend to play games on your Mac then have a second, gaming specific mouse for this kind of use.

    Apple Magic Mouse - Best Mouse I've ever Owned

    • Written by from Bangor

    I've read most of the reviews on here and i think they've mostly been quite harsh on this item. moving from the trackpad ( counter intuitive i know) to this i found it incredibly easy to get used to and within minutes i'm using it as if i had for years.

    Love this mouse!

    • Written by from Liverpool

    I have had this mouse since Christmas 2010 and I have decided to do a review. (I have the Macbook White Unibody 2010). The bluetooth is an excellent feature as it saves having loads of wires or a dongle. The batteries in it last very long. The multi touch gestures work fantastic along with OS X Lion and OS X Snow Leopard. Would definitely recommend it to a friend. The white matches my Mac and Universal dock and iWires mini display port to HDMI adapter. Might even be getting the Wireless keyboard soon. Excellent mouse - best I have ever used.

    It is the best mouse ever!!

    • Written by from Hillerød

    I love it!!!
    The multi-touch features works perfect!
    IT IS NOT HEAVY!!!
    It is not a gamer mouse
    And Apple should make a more round multi-touch mouse!
    Two more things: Apple rules, Windows is a fail. And those people who are wondering if they should buy it, i'll say do it right now!!!

    pleasantly surprised!

    • Written by from Nailsworth

    I was sceptical about buying one of these at first as I read a lot of reviews complaining about battery life. However, after buying the magic mouse with an apple battery charger, i'm not sure I needed the charger after all! I've had the mouse for over a week now and the battery level is still on 100% so i'm assuming it's going to last a fair while. I think the trick might be to switch the mouse after after use (although there's been many nights where i've forgotten to do this). Anyway, I will update my review when the batteries do run out and we'll see how long they last... Also, I've had no problems with comfort at all and have really enjoyed using it. My hands are pretty big too so I don't think big hands will necessarily be a problem with everyone!

    Such a powerful device

    • Written by from Bathgate

    I was worried that this product had less functionality than my mighty mouse and only bought it after the mighty mouse ball eventually stuffed up and could not be fixed anymore. I almost wish it had happened sooner. Download "MagicPrefs" and you can have all the functionality you could ever need in one mouse. For now I have added Expose and Spotlight functionality back into my mouse functions and still have plenty of options that I can use for other actions. If you also run a trackpad the program can also add extra functionality here too.

    Fantastic!

    • Written by from Wraysbury

    This is a fantastic mouse for general tasks such as surfing the web, organising my mac and browsing through photos, as well as using Photoshop. The only downer is not having a middle button which means I have to use another mouse when using CAD programmes such as Alias and Sketchup. It's not really a problem as my backup is very small and can be carried easily. But other than that I'm really pleased with it. Even after 4 months the batteries it came with don't seem to be draining very much! A must buy for anyone in need of a mouse without a middle button! Well done Apple... keep up the good work! :D

    Magic Mouse, pleased as punch.

    • Written by from plymouth

    I got my magic mouse today as an upgrade to the frustrating old track ball mouse.
    - which stopped scrolling up and down, beyond all cleaning suggestions.

    I too was worried about loosing the 'squeeze' for using expose. but you can program the right mouse button to to this, as well as having keyboard presets.

    I love the ability to navigate pages in a circular motion, and since i am now used to a touch screen smart phone find the touch scrolling very easy.

    I stuck with my original hard-wired keyboard so now have an extra USB port.

    I have noticed too that you can buy a charging dock for them, which i think will be a worth while gadget once the factory batteries go.

    I know its only a mouse but if you use design software like i do, it makes a huge difference to be able to scroll properly!

    Inspired Product

    • Written by from Ormskirk

    When I received this product with my iMac I had no idea what to expect with its sensitivity and workings. It was slightly weird at first and took a bit of getting used to but now there isn't a mouse product I'd rather use. I use the Mighty Mouse at university in the edit suites and it feels a lot more clunky and to the people that say the magic mouse isn't ergonomic, I think they missed the point on how to hold it. When I use it, my thumb, little finger and 3rd finger hold the sides and the ends of my index and middle fingers rest where the buttons would be whilst my palm floats. A lovely and very comfortable product that makes everything easy. It just conveniently works and all the functions make sense.

    Expose and other functions

    • Written by from GRÆSTED

    i read i bit of previous reviews, and found that people are missing the expose, spaces and so on functionalities .. and they are saying that the touch pad is not gonna be programmable.. but funny thing, when i got the mouse, first thing i did was to google "Magic Mouse software" and through that i found a freeware program called "MagicPrefs" and i was able to program both, expose and Dashboard shortcuts into my magic mouse, very simple. And it works beautifull, without a doubt in mind, it runs perfect! no more worries about that please..

    Responsive, accurate, nice feel and good battery life with the right cells

    • Written by from Stockport

    I really like the Magic Mouse - it’s perfectly responsive, tracks very accurately, feels nice in the hand and battery life can be very, very good. The surface gestures are useful and I don’t miss the side buttons, although it could be a little bigger.

    Use lithium AA cells which last a long time in this mouse. I’m seeing weeks of heavy use and still showing 100%.

    You can use rechargeable batteries but the level %age will not give an accurate reading. It starts at about 60% when fully charged then falls off to about 40% before expiring. This is not a fault in the Magic Mouse or batteries, it’s just the voltage characteristics of rechargeables which start at 1.2v, hold voltage then fade quickly - this makes the level difficult to measure. Non-rechargeables on the other hand start at 1.5v and fade slowly down to about 1v so battery level can be measured more accurately. Apple should explain this more clearly so people don’t think there’s a problem where there is actually no problem.

    Use lithium cells and you might actually forget this is a battery powered mouse...

    I've needed a new mouse for ages, and if price isn't an issue, then buy this mouse. It's the best you'll find anywhere, unless bluetooth is an issue. Don't be afraid of the price.

    This mouse is so cool

    • Written by from SHIPLEY

    This is how a computer mouse should be in reality. It epitomises the very best in Apple design and technology. Set up could not be easier - successful connectivity right from the start. The mouse has a re-assuring weight, feels like a really quality product and the ergonomic shape makes it a dream to use with the freedom of location and movement on surfaces. The touch controls are seamless in operation and very responsive.

    OK it costs more than the standard mouse but if you have to replace the traditional mouse this is a "must have" choice.
