    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.

    Mouse ok if you haven't used mighty mouse

    • Written by from leigh

    I bought this mouse thinking that it would be off high standard and better, i had the old mighty mouse before this and it was much better, the mighty mouse had side buttons which allowed you to view screens easily this doesn't and takes a lot longer to do what you needed to do. also the price tag of £56 if steep. It is a clever mouse just missing the side buttons.

    Fits really nice in my hand and the functions are very responsive.

    Very slick product.

    Firstly how it pairs with my iMac? So easy! no USB dongle so instantly frees up a USB 2 port, brilliant.

    How easy it is to use ? My partner who is IT phobic used it perfectly first time straight out the box

    How good does it look ? It is like all Apple products totally stunning, perfect design in concept and form. Its wireless so looks like modern art.

    How much does it cost ? £50. Bargain, worth that money alone in all the R&D that must have gone into it.

    Possible imporovement ? would have been great if it emitted a muted light when depressed.

    Packaging ? Should have been completely in recycled card, would have made the recycling footprint almost non existent and added to Apples already excellent green credentials.

    Should you buy one ? Oh I most defeinetly think so, dont you. :-)

    Title fight KO - the new champion, Magic Mouse...

    • Written by from BARNSLEY

    It was a short fight. Magic took Mighty out in the first round with a knockout punch to the trackball. This thing works in every area Mighty was found wanting. Positive click action, robust feel and comfortable in use. The profile is more shallow than a conventional mouse but it's no detriment at all. If you've configured Active Screen Corners on Desktop then Expose is only a swipe away. The base resembles two sled runners and consequently doesn't capture dust like the skirt on Mighty. Free from a mouse mat the accuracy of the laser tracking eliminates desk clutter and encourages you to place the mouse instinctively where you want it, instead of shuffling around the confines of a mat. I had been put off buying Magic Mouse through reading reviews from naysayers here. I'd say you can disregard the negative reviews, just go and get one. You won't be disappointed.

    Just great

    • Written by from DARLINGTON

    Amazing product, feels a little wide to begin with but the touch nature of the device requires a wider flat feel. Team this up with magicprefs and this thing is a blessing to your workflow and whole Mac experience.

    Great design.. poor battery life!

    • Written by from ASHFORD

    I was very pleased when (after three months of waiting) my i7 iMac arrived with its wireless keyboard and mouse. The keyboard I thought would take a bit of getting used to but was fairly quick. The mouse on the other hand I was not that impressed with. It has a very poor battery life and after just 30 days of 8 hrs a day 5 days a week use required its battery changing with just a few hours warning, Put some new batteries in and they seem to be lasting even less time! Been in for just 4 days and power level already showing 86% Keyboard is still at 100%!!

    Big disappointment

    • Written by from LONDON

    Not pleased at all, feels really heavy compared to the might mouse - I realise it's the batteries but because the shape and texture of it also feels all wrong, it seems slippery and like it never really goes where I want it. I also keep scrolling things by mistake, and the right hand second click doesn't always work.

    You can't squeeze it so I can't use it for Expose unless I sacrifice my second click which I don't want to do. The two-finger 'navigation' gesture is fairly useless as far as I can tell and feels quite uncomfortable to do.

    And finally, unless I'm missing something, gestures that work on the macbook trackpad don't work on this (as I was expecting), such as zoom and rotate.

    I can only hope that a software update will come out to provide more gesture recognition. At the moment this feels like an expensive step backwards, and I've switched back to my mighty mouse.

    Good mouse but does not worth 56 pound

    • Written by from plymouth

    The mouse is stylish and sleek , but one of the biggest concern is the battery life of the mouse and the inability to use rechargeable batteries , and the second thing is that there is no specific software for the mouse it self .

    Apart from that its really good on every surface i used it on , and its comfy for long use

    It's looks nice, but...

    • Written by from Chelmsford

    ...there's one really annoying problem. I tend to rest two fingers on the mouse as I'm using it (and as I have always done with other mice), and the issue here is that the right click will not work at all like this, unless I lift both fingers off the mouse surface first. Sounds minor, but this is actually a really annoying problem. For a supposedly multi-touch device, not being able to detect a right click when another finger is resting on its surface seems very odd.

    Other, less irritating problems include the mouse speed being a little too slow, even when set to max in the preferences, and personally, I'd have preferred a slightly higher profile design as I find it a little too flat when using it.

    I can live with some of the issues, but Apple really need to sort out the right click functionality, otherwise mine may sadly end up on an auction site.
