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.

    I really like apple products. Some may call me apple junkie but I'm sorry to say that apple mice are the worst. They beautiful to I really like apple products. Some may call me apple junkie but I'm sorry to say that apple mice are the worst. They beautiful to look at it, they are conceptully good, but a nightmare to use them. They are super heavy, super hard to click on the buttons, not sensitive at all, a lot of friction to use them. PLEASE APPLE DO SOMETHING!!!! Completely annoying product. Also, it's not fare to spend $2500 in a combo like iMac and still you have to go an spend some extra dollars to get a decent mouse. I really hope the message get apple and they get to do something about it. SAD, SAD, SAD. I don't get to enjoy my computer for this frustrating piece, beautiful but frustrating.

    Absolutely love the mouse... almost all of the time. The multitouch is amazing, the feel is perfect. The accuracy is superb. Lov Absolutely love the mouse... almost all of the time. The multitouch is amazing, the feel is perfect. The accuracy is superb. Love the scrolling up and down by simple and smooth finger strokes. It is exactly the right height, weight and made of very durable materials (read last sentence of review). The mouse fits into a bag without causing a bulge or being obnoxiously in the way of other bag gear. The battery lasts forever and in a pinch, you can actually use just one battery to power the rodent! (nice job Apple power engineers!).

    What drives me absolutely bat-ship are two features and they really not the mouse but the operating system:
    1 - Smart Zoom
    2 - Swipe Between Pages

    Both of these are like mouse-crack. Once you use it, you have to have to have it. But BUT they typically don't work right when you try to use them and then surprise you by working when you don't intend to use them.

    1 - a slight gitter in your finger as you put your finger down on the mouse activates this feature. Drink two cups of coffee and you will be activating this feature randomly all day. It is disastrous for presentations and completely distracting (like dripping and landing on your face distracting) while working.

    2 - OMG, it never works right. I can try to use this feature 10 times and can't get the browser to go back or forward a page. It threatens by going half way and snapping back. But as soon as I reach from the keyboard and brush the mouse with my pinky finger, BAM, I just go back a page and lose all the information (like this review) that I have been typing.

    The side effect of both of these issues is a periodic onset of Turrets Syndrome and the random activation of the aviation feature of the mouse (Fly Be Free! - Mork).

    Except for these two little mouse droppings, best dang mouse ever produced by anybody.

    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.
