    Finally, back to mac simplicity!

    • Written by from GLOUCESTER

    I have been using mac's since they first landed! Throughout all progressions, the simple one touch mouse has been an icon and easy to use… but then came the 'mighty mouse! terrible, over complicated and pandering to the PC cross overs.

    I even went as far as buying a couple of spare white single button mice in case mine ever gave up the ghost as there was no way I could get on with the 'mighty mouse'.

    So when I got my new iMac I was ready to sell the new and untested magic mouse on eBay and plug in my nice cosy old USB baby.

    However, I gave it a try and was very, very pleasantly surprised, it was great, enough functions without going OTT and with the feel of the old single touch mouse! Brilliant!

    The scroll function is perfect and natural, (just hated that micro ball on the mighty mouse!).

    The Magic Mouse really is excellent!

    Good size and shape and battery length is ok, but I have rechargeable AA's standing by.

    Getting another for work and selling my single button collectables instead.

    : )

    flawed mouse

    • Written by from Singapore

    It has a number of bugs. sometimes it will not highlight text at first attempt. In excel it scrolls to the right of the spreadsheet for no reason and you then have to go to the scroll bar at the bottom to take you back to the left side.
    apart from that it works well and battery life is good.

    Its lovely except it gives you RSI!

    • Written by from Huntingdon

    Finally a step forward in the evolution of the mouse, great idea.

    Trouble is its too shallow so you end up clawing your hand to grip it where instead your palm rests on a (good) traditional mouse.

    Still it appears everyone else loves it so perhaps I'm deformed... (wouldn't be the first time) Try it yourself because if you can cope with the shape its a great functional advance.

    Great mouse

    • Written by from Douglas

    I love the look, feel and functionality of the Magic Mouse. The only thing I would like it to have in addition to the current features is the 'pinch' like on the iPhone and MacBook Pro trackpad. Otherwise I'm completely happy with this fantastic product. Well done Apple - keep the innovations coming.

    The best mouse I ever owned

    • Written by from Cork

    I love this mouse in every way.

    The design is absolutely stunning and feels great in the hand.

    Scrolling a window or a web page is an entirely new experience due to the mouse's silky smooth shell and touch surface. This mouse feels right in every way.

    There is nothing I would add or dare take away - it's simply perfect. This is the best Apple mouse ever and the best mouse I have ever owned.

    Kudos to Apple for a terrific, dare I say perfect product!

    I am not convinced

    • Written by from DERBY

    I expect that Apple will improve on this device. However I have a few gripes at present.
    Firstly when swiping with two fingers I have to hold the mouse down with the other hand to stop it moving.
    The tracking is not as responsive as the Mighty Mouse either.
    When scrolling it sometimes fails to recognise the finger movement.

    While it looks great and removes the tangled mouse wire issue it is nowhere near a 5 star yet

    Wow!

    • Written by from London

    This mouse is amazing ;) It takes a bit of getting used to but once it clicks (excuse the pun) you will never look back... If only it would work with my work PC as well.

    Stunning!

    • Written by from DEAL

    I was a bit put off by some reviews so, instead of buying online, I waited to check out a Magic Mouse at the Apple Store. I was hooked from first touch and, although it took a day or two to get used to the flatter design, it now seems strange if I have to use the Mighty Mouse on hubby's computer. My advice - buy one now!

    Style+Substance...Simply Magic!

    • Written by from Bristol

    The Magic Mouse really lives up to its name. At first i was really reluctant to buy, reading comments by people saying that tracking speed is really slow while the design is uncomfortable. Well, let me tell you. Do not plainly believe and try it for yourself at an Apple store. There are absolutely no problems and the mouse works wonderful and the design is class and comfy. And you can customise this 'little magician'- as i prefer to call it by downloading the software 'MagicPrefs' available for free from the Apple downloads site. You can even increase the tracking speed to up to 200% of the original (to those who really need SPEED) and customise many taps and swipe styles that you would like. You can even have the Expose functionality (yes, contrary to popular belief-thanks to the Apple Store Genius Staff in Bristol for telling me this). In short, its simply the best mouse i've ever had both functionally and ergonomically. To anyone thinking of buying, i would advise you to go for it and experience the Magic rather than resorting to the same old two buttoned 'lifeless' mice out there.

    Beautiful, Elegant and very Sci Fi

    • Written by from London

    At first I was very reluctant in going back to Apple's design of mouse'. The truth is that for years I loved their design, but weren't very good at all.

    They failed in making a mouse that was truly usable other than for the simple browsing and point and click stuff.

    For animators, photoshop users it wasn't the best so like them I too left their mouse behind and went for Logitech.

    I'll say this, it may still not be for the hardcore, but it's good for most computer operations and it is a joy to use.

    This is by far the best mouse apple has made.

    Try it before you buy it though, not everyone will like the design and will feel it's a bit too flat etc.

    But for me it's perfect as it is.

    Absolutely amazing

    • Written by from London

    I am an avid gamer and used the best mice including the Razer Death addder and Razer Mamba. Recently I got the magic mouse for my macbook air and I must admit its the best I have ever used. The whole package is awesomme, the touch controls, tracking precision and the ergonomics ofcourse. I would recommend this to anyone who has got a macbook. This mouse is ages ahead of its peers, it even beats the mighty mouse. Get it guys, you wont regret it.

    Quality in the palm of your hand

    • Written by from Ashford

    I never usually write reviews, however I felt compelled to say that this is by far the best feeling mouse I have used for a very long time. It is slightly on the thin side compared to the mighty mouse, however, once you get past the initial weird feeling (which passes very quickly may I add), you could not imagine using anything else.

    Well done apple on this great looking, feeling, functional mouse.

    Mac Pro incompatible

    • Written by from WOKING

    Tried to use this on my Bluetooth enabled Mac Pro, and also on my other Mac Pro which has a bluetooth dongle. Works beautifully for 30 seconds and then goes all sluggish and unusable. Tried all the different remedies, but I think that these mice do not like Mac Pro's. Mac Genius guy didn't tell me THAT ONE!!!!

    What a disappointment

    • Written by

    I wanted to like it but my warm hands make it far too responsive and it skitters all over the place. But worse, it refuses to work on anything but a really rough surface and I have to hold that down with my other hand. I need three hands! I've gone back to my trusty Logica which works on anything and lets me enjoy my computer.

    A great mouse

    • Written by from Brighton

    Although this mouse has got some bad press because it's not ergonomic enough, what do you expect? To incorporate the touch/gesture technology it has to be the way it is.

    It is incredibly flat and it will take a while to get used to but once you have, you'll love it.
    For gaming it's terrible as left and right clicks/holds are often misinterpreted but I expected that and didn't buy it with the intentions to use it for games.

    In summary this is another great, innovative mouse for general home-office use and worth the £56

    Beautiful to touch

    • Written by from LOUGHBOROUGH

    Took awhile to get used to as it is a little flat, but once you give it a chance and get used to it the way the touch sensitive top works is just divine.

    I've never liked the mac mouses and i've always used a 3rd party 2 button laser mouse, but i love this.

    Apple, you got this right.
