    Want a corded one.

    • Written by from Hyde Park

    We have had our iMac for 2 years now and the magic mouse seems to go through more batteries than ever, plus it seems that something isn't quite doing its job of always being powered even when the batteries are new. Now I wish that apple would make the magic mouse with a cord, because honestly I get sick of buying batteries. I have already tried one of those rechargeable things as my son bought me one and it did not work that well either. I just wish that they had this mouse with a cord so that it could be powered with the same electricity as the computer.

    Almost Perfect

    • Written by from Franklin

    This mouse is almost the perfect mouse. It is responsive and innovative making the user experience easier and more enjoyable so it is well worth the money to the average person however to a gamer its not. Traditional button based mouses still win out because of side buttons and the ability to click on both sides of the mouse (the top two buttons) and engage a third unique command compared to if you clicked on either side independently.

    Amazing, but...

    • Written by from Randolph

    It came with my new iMac. I love the way it scrolls. I have smallish hands, so it's a nice fit. Some don't like the way it drags a bit on a mouse pad, I find it to be more precise (for graphics) because of it. However! It looses connection way too frequently, and not due to battery life. And it is so sensitive to touch that it tries to change pages (laterally) when I am not trying to. I suppose that I will get used to the movement issue. But the disconnect is irritating. Each time I have to power off from the bcd of the computer to reconnect. Oddly, the keyboard (which is also wireless) doesn't have that problem.

    Complementary to Magic Trackpad

    • Written by from Bloomington

    This mouse is perfect for browsing with Safari. Easy to click on links within the same tab then swipe to shuffle through multiple pages. It does not swipe between tabs, you have to use keyboard command or click on tab. The scrolling works much better than a traditional wheel, and is easier on your hand. For me the mouse could be larger, but the size is OK. The double click twice to access Mission Control doesn't always work; it is easier to use keyboard or trackpad 3 fingers swipe up. The ability to swipe between full screen apps is great. Overall I use this most of the time with a combo wrist rest/mouse pad; and it has replaced my other small bluetooth mouse. I still use a larger mouse for photo editing and have a trackpad nearby for certain gestures and to put my hand in a different position.

    Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Red Rock

    Bought this mouse for christmas so far so good. I also bought the wireless keyboard. The mouse has some real nice features with Lion. Swiping between screens for one example. Kinda of like using my iPhone. Battery life is still at 100% installed on the 25-Dec with moderate use.

    A lovely but slow-moving mouse

    • Written by from Hamilton

    I just purchased my magic mouse and after using it for a few minutes I'm generally impressed by it. My only real qualm is that it is not a fast mouse. Unlike my Mighty Mouse, when I use the Magic Mouse (on the fastest 'tracking' setting), I'm forced to move the mouse much further than usual to get it across the screen. The other functions are great and it's visually pleasing. I guess I'll just have to get used to lifting it off my mouse pad and using inertia to get it across the screen. If only the tracking were as sensitive as the Mighty Mouse. If you need to move your cursor across the screen quickly, avoid this mouse like the plague. If you don't mind dragging the mouse around more it's an impressive tool.

    A Great Device with a Couple Drawbacks

    • Written by from Mill Hall

    I love this mouse and how easy it is to navigate on my computer. I would never want to go back to a regular mouse. However, this thing eats batteries, and sometimes, it loses the connection to my computer. On a few occasions, it hasn't wanted to reconnect to the computer, so I have to revert back to the touch screen on my laptop. I would still recommend this product, and I'm going to try the Apple battery charger.

    Great for creating, not for gaming

    • Written by from West Hartford

    I would highly recommend this for anyone who uses their Mac for creative projects and especially with OSX Lion, which augments its performance. This is a great multifunctional mouse, but the one function it lacks in performance is gaming. The sensitivity is too low (even with it turned up all the way) for gaming and the left/right click functions are hard to handle (eg. quick firing of guns in an FPS). Otherwise, great product!

    Nice mouse but has battery issues

    • Written by from Keller

    I've been using my Magic Mouse for several months now after an unfortunate tumble killed off my wireless Mighty Mouse. It fits well in my hand and the Multi-Touch functionality makes it hard to beat. The Multi-Touch interface is a bit too sensitive to use for serious gaming so I keep a wired USB mouse handy.

    The only real issues I have with the Magic Mouse have to do with the batteries. First, this thing uses batteries faster than anything I've ever seen. I usually only get about three weeks out of a pair of alkaline batteries, if I'm lucky. The last time around I switched to Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries and they lasted about two months. Second, likely owing to Steve Jobs' insistence that Apple products look good, even on the inside, the engineers created a nice-looking battery compartment. The negative terminals are spring-loaded buttons rather than just springs and the positive terminals are recessed. The problem is that they are so recessed that not every battery has positive terminals long enough to reach the contacts in the recessed space. I bought some Rayovac alkalines since I didn't have any spare lithiums and the grocery store didn't stock lithiums. The Rayovacs couldn't reach the positive terminals! I had to resort to balling up some small pieces of aluminum foil to fit in the recesses in order for contact to be made.

    Lesson learned? Always keep a spare set of lithium batteries handy that I know will fit.

    Great mouse... especially on Mac

    • Written by from New Haven

    I've had this Magic Mouse for about 8 months and I love it. It works seamlessly on my MacBook Pro 2011 but not so smooth when I use it on WIndows 7 Professional bootcamp. You'll have to set it up to be able to use on Windows. I have no major complaints. Prior to buying it, I read a lot of comments on the battery life. I don't think those comments were worth it. I've been using the same batteries since I bought this mouse. Granted, I don't use it every second of every day. But if you are just a regular laptop user who only uses your laptop mainly at home when you're away from your office computer, then you shouldn't have an issue with battery. I switch the mouse off when not in use. I also got the rechargeable batteries but I'm yet to use those. At this time, my mouse is running on about 50% battery power and it's working fine. I'll give 4-stars because it doesn't work as smooth on Windows!

    Great mouse, but

    • Written by from Deerfield Beach

    I own a magic mouse since the first day it became available. I love this mouse, but now after using it 10+ hours a day the body of the mouse (made out of plastic) started to deteriorate. What I would like to see improved is an option to disable the scrolling in certain application (like Adobe Suite) and the side edges of the mouse a bit rounded, because after a while I fell the edges cutting my fingers.

    Great mouse, but....

    • Written by from Candor

    Excellent mouse, so smooth, no moving scroll parts that get clogged with dirt, but prepare to invest in MANY AA batteries. This thing eats through batteries like there is no tomorrow. If they made one with a cord, it would be the best mouse ever.

    Functionally great, but...

    • Written by from Baltimore

    ...not so comfortable. I use it when I work from home all day and my hand starts aching after just a couple of hours. It's so nice and streamlined, but I sure wish it was more ergonomic.

    The only other negative is that the swipe can be a little too sensitive and does not allow adjustment. One wrong touch and your document goes scrolling waaaaaaay fast the wrong way. Nothing's perfect, I guess.

    Otherwise, the mouse is brilliant - it is fast and responsive, and I only have to change the battery every couple of months.
