    Sweet relief!

    • Written by from West Chester

    I love this little gadget. It makes navigating the web so much easier. Also, the track pad on my macbook irritates my wrists, its so easy and comfortable to use. The touch sensors are (of course) flawless. The only thing is that it was a little expensive...

    Great Mouse, But Room For Improvement

    • Written by from Livonia

    I bought this mouse after the dog had bumped my targus mouse out of my hands and it had stopped functioning well after hitting the ground. I had wanted one of these for awhile and I'm impressed with most of it, but I miss the customization and functionality of my targus mouse (two customizable side buttons, left/right buttons plus center button that is touch scroll and blue tooth, all that for 30 bucks).

    On the good side...
    -Sleek and cool looking
    -Blue Tooth is a must in my opinion
    -Touch scroll works very well, smooth and easy in all directions
    -Works well for most uses

    On the bad side...
    -No middle button or other customizable buttons. This I could get over if the touch gestures were more customizable. Such as being able to change the two finger swipe to do something other than just navigate, I was thinking it would be great to be able to swipe to change spaces, but this is not an option. You can set spaces to the secondary click, but then you lose your secondary click unless you hold control. On that note, the right button would be great for spaces if I could set secondary click to something like two finger tap such as the touch pad.

    This is my major dislike about the mouse, I don't mind not having other buttons, but please make the touch gestures more complicated and customizable!

    -The smooth aluminum sides and small compact design make a bad combination for comfort and control, can get uncomfortable after a while.

    do you believe in magic?

    • Written by from Saint Charles

    i am an advocate for apple and when i first saw the mouse i honestly thought it was ridiculous idea and a difficult product to use. i ended up getting the mouse as a present and after getting used to it, i instantly fell in love with it. i don't go anywhere with out my mouse and i some times look like a fool using other mouses because i forget that they are not all multi-touch censored. overall, apple once again blew me away and i cannot live without my magic mouse.

    ** Good Buy **

    • Written by from Coral Springs

    Another great Apple product!!! Functions great!!! The only downside to it in my opinion is the size. Needs to be just a little bit larger in size for hand comfort.

    I love the product, it looks great, very functional...it does exactly as it claims. The only thing is that when apple got rid of the track ball it was a win/lose situation, the down side to the track ball is that is gets dirty and all gunked up inside and eventually stops working. With the magic mouse you have no track ball and I always find my self scrolling up/down on accident when ever I try and click on something... Maybe I just havent mastered the art of it yet.

    Just works

    This mouse came with my iMac. It's enjoyable to use and hasn't failed me yet. I have changed the batteries (which are monitored) one in three months. I would and have recommended it.

    problem with batt

    • Written by from Martinez

    This gadget is very good, actually it is awesome, very smooth, but not with a pad. However, the batt dies in less than a month, so i bought a rechargeable batt and in less than 3 weeks i had to recharge the batt again. It's a good thing i did not throw my good old white mouse. That old white mouse is still the go-to mouse for me.

    Excellant feel and response

    • Written by from Calgary

    This mouse performs beautifully and the multi touch and gesture control perform flawlessly. Performs well on a variety of surfaces except glass.A great addition to any Macbook or iMac. My only wish is to have all the same multi touch gestures as my Macbook Pro. Glass functionality would be a nice addition as well.

    Best mouse I have used

    • Written by from Columbia

    I will qualify what I say with the fact that I used one mouse (Kensington Ci75m) with my Macbook pro before getting the magic mouse and I hated it. After using the old one, I have been really satisfied with most of the features of the magic mouse. It can be too sensitive but it gets better as you use the mouse and know what causes the sensitivity, your clumsy hand motions.

    Works Great, but...

    • Written by from Albuquerque

    I highly recommend this mouse over the glitchy and annoying Mighty Mouse.
    I like how it's made out of aluminum, so that it's more durable and consistent.

    The only cons are these:
    1. Unlike with the apple Macbook Pro Touchpad, this mouse is still a prototype, the one finger scroll feature works great, but the two finger navigation feature doesn't work with some applications, like Mail and Preview.
    2. I can't really use this mouse without a mouse pad, otherwise, it has too much friction with my desk.
    3. I have to manually connect it every time I turn it on, I really wish it automatically connected to my computer.
    4. this mouse requires bluetooth, which can get sort of annoying because it takes all the battery out of my laptop, and I hate it when i have to get my charger out of it perfectly coiled storage position :(

    Awesome mouse, but not recomended for gaming.

    • Written by

    I received this mouse with the purchase of my new iMac, and it is the coolest mouse I've ever seen. I used it at first with the default settings (as a 1 button mouse), then changed its settings to enable a right button on it. It works great as a 1 or 2 button mouse, but don't think that because it has scrolling that it would also function as a 3 button mouse with a middle button to click.

    Not many apps require a middle button, but if you play any games, you might be disappointed. The scrolling is much to sensitive for some games as well (eg: Quake Live).

    In a earlier review someone mentioned that the cursor is slow at moving across the screen, a quick adjustment of the Tracking in the Mouse settings fixes that.

    Terrific mouse

    • Written by from Arlington

    In my ideal world, it would support three and four horizontal/vertical finger swipes. Otherwise, great product.

    When they add the side buttons back - it will be awesome

    • Written by from Madisonville

    That is my main complaint and actually went back to my old mouse for that only reason. Scrolling is a 100% better and motion but not having the side buttons is a problem

    Excellent functionality

    • Written by from Austin

    BUT I'm on my fifth or sixth set of batteries since October. The battery life drops by 10 to 15% per day of moderate use. Besides the unforgivably poor batter life, it's the best mouse I've ever owned.

    Awesome / Burns Batteries

    • Written by from Denver

    I am a huge fan of the Magic Mouse and would recommend it but with a heads up that it goes through batteries fairly quickly. I have replaced the AA's once since Jan. 1st and it is telling me that my new batteries are already low. No other complaints.

    Amazing mouse, but eats your cheese.

    • Written by from Colorado Springs

    I absolutely love this mouse but it eats batteries like there's no tomorrow. After 2 1/2 weeks it chewed thru the Energizer batteries it came with. I've replace them already, hopefully it will go on a diet. Otherwise it will be an expensive mouse to keep up. Design and usability gets a 10+.

    Wireless is great Looking Forward to The Wireless Track Pad

    • Written by from COLORADO SPRINGS

    Breifly as possible:
    The Magic Mouse ( and key board) work very well !
    Battery on mouse 81% after >1 wk use many hours a day ( KB still at 100 % )
    Wish it had all the touch of a track pad but really like not having a wire.
    My main computer now is a new Mini connected to a Samsung TV so is great to sit on the couch with no wire from mouse to the computer.
    Most of the time it tracks with no lag. Rarely there is a slight lag but may be because I have the mouse beside my leg in line with wireless Key Board. May be my leg and KB block signal to some small degree.
    MM has a quality feel; a bit of weight, aluminum underside, thick clear plastic top with white layer under clear. No red beam like old mouse.

    As far as I can make out I can not sleep the computer and then turn off the mouse and key board. This wakes up the Mini and it scans constantly for the blue tooth MM and KB. So to save battery on MM and KB I first shut down Mini then turn off mouse and KB

    PS: I have the App for the touch/iPhone to control cursor on computer like a touch pad. On my iMac it works perfectly ( no lag ) on the TV screen connected to the mini it is not as good as the Magic Mouse. Tweaking the settings helps.

    I am a touch pad person ( see Mac Book Air and iPhone ) and will buy a wireless Bluetooth touch pad when it comes out from Apple. For now thank you Apple for the Magic Mouse !

    To the work shop Apple Lads and Lasses ! ! !

    Apple's Best Mouse Yet

    • Written by from Oviedo

    While it's not perfect, the magic mouse is a huge step in the right direction for what many consider the worst Apple products. Many of the issues I see with the magic mouse can, and likely will be, addressed with software updates. Many professionals have already noted how the super sensitive touch surface poses challenges in software like Adobe's creative suite & Apple's final cut, logic & aperture. Most of these issues deal with touching the mouse to click in a precise location and the multi-touch surface activating, either scrolling or zooming which either way leaves the cursor in a different location than you wanted to click. Apple could begin capturing data on clicks and build a method for the magic mouse to ignore these inadvertent multi-touch events. Other people have issues with the ergonomics of the design, but I have no problems with it. They also are lacking other gesture support like pinch to zoom, three finger swipes, and rotation. Again these can be added via software later. Like I said, it's not perfect but it is Apple's best mouse yet. For the everyday casual home use mac I really feel this mouse is the best choice. For the users of pro applications you may want to have a backup mouse.
