    Good for every day performance

    • Written by from Urbandale

    The Magic Mouse is great for basic performance. It is small enough to not be a burden when traveling.

    The only disadvantage is if you are a gamer. The touch sensitivity is very sensitive and i constantly find myself accidentally scrolling while just resting my hand on the mouse.

    Besides that, great product!

    Good technology, but...

    • Written by from Upper Arlington

    ...you need to download extra applications to fully utilize that technology. The Magic Mouse only comes with a couple of mostly inconsequential gestures, but downloading that extra application (BetterTouchTool is what Micro Center recommended for me) will allow you to use the Magic Mouse's Multi-Touch technology to the fullest extent. For instance, a three-finger swipe downwards on the mouse now pulls up the Exposé for me (you won't be able to fit four fingers onto it if you were looking for a direct analogue to the trackpad gestures). While the Magic Mouse is certainly not ergonomic (at this point, my thumb, the tips of my ring and pinky fingers anchor while my index and middle fingers do the clicking...meaning very little of my hand actually touches the Magic Mouse), I doubt the Magic Mouse was designed with it in mind (Logitech certainly is better in the ergonomics department). It's supposed to be very sleek, and that combined with the Multi-Touch technology makes for a worthwhile Bluetooth mouse.

    great mouse, but lacks middle click

    • Written by from Oklahoma City

    I got this mouse, love it, but I do have to keep my old mighty mouse plugged in when I want to use programs that utilize the middle button. this is really annoying. please add middle click, i mean it would be really simple in my opinion to just make 2 fingers+click= middle click...

    Two steps forward, one step back

    • Written by from Lethbridge

    With the Magic Mouse, Apple is close to having the ultimate mouse. Like a lot of people, I got annoyed with how the Mighty Mouse's trackball would get gummed up. I couldn't get it to scroll down anymore. The Magic Mouse is a huge improvement in that regard; it scrolls quickly and easily. The momentum scrolling is also very nice. The buttons are crisp and responsive. No more trackballs to clean. That's the two steps forward. BUT, I miss the third and fourth buttons to launch Dashboard and Expose. That's a step back. Overall, though, if you scroll a lot with your mouse, this is worth getting.

    Almost Perfect

    • Written by from Greencastle

    This mouse is the finest I've ever owned. Easy to use, very intuitive, and it's even easy to clean. There is only one drawback: You can't left and right click at the same time; it's one or the other, which makes the use of certain applications and certain games fairly difficult. I find myself switching to a mouse that CAN left and right click simultaneously fairly often.

    Coolest Mouse Ever...

    • Written by from Aurora

    The coolness factor of this mouse is not to be denied, however with that being said I have had some issues with it. It is sluggish at times and needs to be rebooted to get back to original speed. Even with this problem I would highly recommend this product. Once you get used to it, using any other type of mouse seems odd and outdated.

    It's Awesome, But.....

    • Written by from Grass Valley

    I do agree with most of the reviewers that the magic mouse is indeed awesome. It can handle any job out there, but if you use it on surfaces that are not granite or some other hard surfaces it tends to wear a nice little area free of any surface treatments that have been applied. I think it is when they made the magic mouse with the two little runners that run the length of the mouse, they just wear the surface out. I would recommend a mouse pad if you are using it on wood.

    Great, but not excellent

    • Written by from hewlett

    First off, the tracking and scrolling on this mouse are extremely customizable, you can make them both extremely fast or slow. The tracking and scrolling are both extremely accurate, the mouse never jumps, and it scrolls with momentum. Another positive is its small size, on multiple occasions I have put it in my pocket and forgot where I put it, it ways so little. If you use Energizer batteries, this baby will really run as long as Apple says it will, which is several months. Works on most surfaces.
    Cons: This mouse has no buttons except right and left click, so if you play a game that requires a lot of keybinds (World of Warcraft), I would suggest you get another mouse. Does not work on glass, works to a limited degree on marble, so think about where you will use it before buying.

    Here's an idea, how's about something other then White!

    • Written by from herndon

    I actually bought this mouse because of the weight, I was looking for a heavy wireless mouse. The smooth surface is nice for making finger motions to control zooms and scrolling, the locations for right and left click are spot on, I never get the wrong one without a physical button. After you have it paired, make sure you check for software updates, and install the wireless mouse 1.0 software/drivers so you can get the added features mentioned... It tends to scrape against the desk I'm using it on, so I've been putting a book underneath it till I dig up a mouse pad... Power button on the bottom isn’t that big a deal, I’ve yet to have it snag on anything... if your putting it on a soft mouse pad I could see it being a problem (but it’s pretty obvious that’s a bad idea).

    After about 18 hours of use (over 2 days) the battery life is 93%... so take that for what it’s worth, also keep in mind that most wireless mice eat batteries, it’s the nature of the beast, however I can already tell it’s going to be a far cry short from what it says in the Q&A If your looking for an upgrade from the stock mouse Apple ships with it computers, It’s a vast improvement... I really like the smooth plastic surface. It’s easy to clean, which is my main issue with Apples white keyboards. If you like 5 button mice, this mouse isn’t for you, I think the scroll works as well as anything else with a physical scroll wheel...

    Is it worth $69? Maybe if it came in black.. but seriously, we all have a different idea of what 69 dollars is worth, so go to the store and try it before you buy it. I like it, but that’s me... really wish it came in a color other then white.

    Freakin' awesome mouse - sucky battery life

    • Written by from Florence

    I LOVE my magic mouse. Navigation is made almost disgustingly easy and it's just so cool! My only dislike is the length of the battery life. I've had it for about 3 months and have changed the batteries about 5 times. Granted, this could probably be helped if I turned it off when I was done, but who really remembers to do that? It's definitely not a deal breaker, as I'll rave about it to anyone who asks, but be sure to keep a good stock of batteries around.

    Overall ... Pretty Impressive

    4 .. Value

    I just purchased this mouse and have been using it for almost a half day now. It's looks are stunning - pictures don't do it justice. Of course, like all things in the world, it's not perfect.

    Let's start with the ergonomics. It's obvious; it's definitely not the most comfortable mouse out there - it's just too sexy though, so you just won't care. In any case, it's not even that bad! I was a former Logitech mouse user so I definitely have experience ergonomic, comfortable mice. The magic mouse is going to take some getting used to for sure, but once you do it's really not bad at all!

    If you're thinking about upgrading from the Apple Mighty Mouse ... DO IT! The might mouse was terrible - I had so many problems with the scrolling using that stupid trackball.

    Overall ... I do recommend this mouse to anyone looking for something to compliment their Apple computer's beautiful design and their Apple keyboard.

    Almost Perfect

    • Written by from San Antonio

    This mouse is truly magical! There is no doubt Apple provides a caliber product. What keeps this from being a perfect piece of hardware? No USB recharging capabilities. Wireless mice are nothing new. Apple's spin on the mouse breathes new life into an old idea. Why not take it to the next level? The design is sleak and sexy. An ergonomic feel and precise onscreen response pushes this mouse ahead of the pack. The innovative interface allows intuitive navigation for the end user. What the end user will be wondering though is, why can my ipod and iphone charge via USB and not my wireless smart mouse? USB rechargable Magic Mouse from Apple. Hey, there's an idea. Wireless keyboard review is next...

    Don't blame the tracking issues on the hardware

    • Written by from Hillsboro

    As many others have complained the Magic Mouse is having slow tracking issues. This should have been fixed in a OS X update rather than having to install a 3rd party app such as "MouseZoom". The problem lies with the tracking speed granularity which can also be manually modified with the following command: "defaults write -g com.apple.mouse.scaling VALUE", where VALUE is a non negative number - just experiment a little bit and try small increments until it's been fixed.
    However, the hardware itself is authentic Apple, stylish, simplistic and sexy. The mouse does have a button but the scroll is touch based. Sometimes it can hinder web navigation when both button and touch are pressed simultaneously.
    Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase.

    Vast improvement over mighty mouse, but they could have done much more.

    • Written by from Raleigh

    The removal of the ball alleviates many problems of a fouled scroll ball from its predecessors. The annoying problem of the misinterpreted right button click from the mighty mouse was also corrected. So this mouse is a pleasure to use on the basis of the elimination of these problems alone. The scroll gesturing and the zoom is a much more natural motion than with the old undersized ball of the mighty mouse. I think Apple missed the boat with what they could have done with the gesturing, like adopting the pinch motions from the Iphone/Ipad for zoom control, saving the user from reaching for the key. They also eliminated the side buttons and the center click with no replacement. So you will need to assign corner zones for expose and the dash board. They could have easily added extra gestures for these functions and many more.
    Over all, the Magic mouse is a vast improvement over the Mighty Mouse, but it remains an unfinished work of art.

    Good mouse, but would like to give 3.5 stars!

    • Written by from Lynnwood

    I just bought the Mighty Mouse and I'm having some trouble with moving it on an "Oriental Rug" looking mouse pad with complicated patterns, which I dearly love. I needed to slow down on my movement with the mouse on this particular mouse pad. On the other hand, I tried the Mighty Mouse again on an ordinary bright red circular mouse pad from IKEA with my normal "mouse-moving speed", it worked fine. It also worked great on my light wood color dining table (no pad).

    So, I guess it's made to work on multi-surface, EXCEPT complicated pattern mouse pads. Overall, it's a great mouse, but it comes across as very flimsy. I'm afraid if I drop it, it will shatter or chip one of the corners. I really wish Apple would come up with some kind of mouse carry case or glove.
