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.

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

    I LOVE the multitouch features of this mouse, they're really amazing, and I love how this thing looks. But it's such a pain to use I LOVE the multitouch features of this mouse, they're really amazing, and I love how this thing looks. But it's such a pain to use. The tracking is just horrible. There is way too much friction when you drag it around, which makes it very hard to be precise. The surface they used which makes contact with your mousepad is way too big and the material they used is not smooth enough to allow the mouse to move around smoothly. The next problem is the shape of the mouse, again Apple sacrificed comfort for style. The mouse looks amazing, but using it really hurts your wrists because you have nothing to rest them on. I really hope Apple makes a new version of this mouse and fixes these issues because it's otherwise an amazing mouse.

    Don't use this mouse if you care at all about your hands. It's the least ergonomic mouse I've ever owned, and I wish I hadn't boug Don't use this mouse if you care at all about your hands. It's the least ergonomic mouse I've ever owned, and I wish I hadn't bought it.

    My hand starts to hurt after using it for more than maybe an hour (and yes, that's with breaks for typing, stretching, etc.). If you want to hold the mouse comfortably, you'd better have TINY hands -- anyone with average-size or large hands will have to curl their fingers into an unnatural claw-like grip to hold it securely, and your hand will tire quickly. Clicking is even worse -- you almost have to curl your finger back on itself.

    Scrolling is a bit better -- you don't have to exert any force like you do with clicking. But you still have to keep your fingers in an awkward, claw-like position, which makes it hard to hold the mouse itself steady while scrolling.

    Finally, there's the fact that it's wireless -- there are always batteries to change, and for that, you get a range of ... 6 feet? So if you're thinking of using this mouse to control a media-center computer or similar, don't bother. Bluetooth just doesn't have the range.

    About the best that can be said of this mouse is that it's functional -- I've never had any problems scrolling, clicking, or moving the pointer. But the serious ergonomic issues make it difficult to control, and therefore rather imprecise.

Yes, the feeling and swipe functions are great. However, it runs out of power every 1-2 weeks. It magically eats money and time even with rechargeable batteries.

    Compared to the design and smooth process of the rest Apples products, it just seems clunky. One idea is just to make a mouse-pad that charges it or a little station you place it on at the end of the day. My Braun toothbrush even has this down.

    I love the horizontal scrolling feature of the mac mice. I decided to go with the wireless this time, since my first non-wireless I love the horizontal scrolling feature of the mac mice. I decided to go with the wireless this time, since my first non-wireless mouse only lasted a year after the chord started to rip. Well this one is super sensitive and drives me nuts. As a designer, it is always moving my art boards around when I don't want it to, changing web pages with the forward and backward side swiping feature.. it is WAY TOO SENSITIVE. But the biggest disappointment of all is with that this mouse DRAINS THE BATTERIES. I had to change my batteries after only having this mouse for ONE MONTH. Then again after ANOTHER MONTH—not to mention I do shut it off. I will have to purchase rechargeable batteries, but I have had a logitech mouse for an entire year and left it on all the time and NEVER had to change the batteries. Apple makes great computers, but once again disappointed with yet another poorly made accessory from them.
