  • The Magic Mouse does not work at all when used directly on top of my glass top desk. When placed on a standard $7-$10 mousepad from an office supply store, it is extremely sluggish. I have not yet tried a better mousepad. It works quite well when used on a copy of "Spore: The Official Game Guide"... ;)

  • If we take the old Mighty Mouse as an example, which has a similar rubber circular strip at its base. The rubber strip will last a long time, usually wearing down where your hand rests.

    We have two Mighty Mice in our household. The one used on a glass surface has little wear. The one on the wood surface has worn down the laminate (minimally) and has suffered greater wear. Both have been in use for more than 3 years.

    That will change soon though, as we will be upgrading to the new Magic Mouse.

  • Best Answer:

    The bottom does NOT have rubber bumper strips. They are plastic. The body of the mouse is constructed from aluminum. The top is clear acrylic plastic which scratches very easily. The bottom are two black plastic beams. They keep if off the tracking surface. They are made from a strong plastic and should stand up very well to your tracking surface. That is why they are there in the first place! If it is on wood, it will mostly be worn faster. On glass, the mouse generally will not work anyway. As for the surface of the desk, wood will be the worst if not laminated good. If it is not too smooth, it will wear a lot more.
