    Pretty Good

    • Written by

    It takes some time getting used to, that's for sure. And 70 bucks? Expensive. But considering this is apple we're talking about....

    I would recommend this.

    Works OK

    • Written by from HOPKINTON

    I got this mouse with a Mac Pro about 1.5 years ago. Also got the Apple battery charger and Apple batteries. Everything works fine, although it's sometimes a bit sensitive (scrolls or zooms when I don't want it to if I accidentally use an unintended gesture). Somewhat surprised at some of the negative comments. Top surface is smooth (not sticky), rechargeable batteries work fine, nothing has broken during the time I've had it, I have been able to edit images in Photoshop, speed seems fine and easily adjustable (I have a 27 inch monitor, so I would certainly notice if it was too slow). Batteries seem to need recharging every few weeks or so (not every day). I've used a variety of other mice with Macs, PCs, Unix workstations, and this seems as good as any I've used (but of course there are many others I haven't tried). Basically satisfied with it.

    It's ok. Works for me.

    • Written by from Hercules

    Yeah it doesn't right click, so if you are putting microsoft or some other big right click using program in your MAC computer, you need a different mouse. And the battery cover comes off once each couple weeks and I put it back on in 20 seconds.
    But with my mac mini no problem. I don't even use a track pad-just the tabletop. And there's a bump on my table where a finishing nail rises up on the surface and I hit it about once every 2 weeks with the mouse and knock off my battery cover, put the cover back on then I go pound the nail down again.
    I also rest the heel of my hand on the table while I finger scroll. I can rest my thumb on one side and little finger on the other side on the table for rest also. If your hands are small you could only rest on one side.
    This is not a horrible mouse like the old hockey puck mouse. Go to a mac store, best buy, etc if you can and try one.
    My only complaint: it eats batteries every 3 months so to be ecological you need rechargeable batteries. I've had this mouse 1 & 1/2 years.

    A great accessory for your Mac Book Pro

    • Written by from GOLDEN

    When it comes to wanting to do some true graphic design, development, general use, or gaming on your Mac Book Pro, this is a must have tool. It allows you to sit back and work from afar without the need of wires, while having the amazing combination of a trackpad and a mouse, this truly is a "magic" mouse. It is definitely a must have for any mac user.

    Best mouse but it has its fallbacks

    • Written by from Kirkland

    I've tried many other mice and this is the best one i have found. i love the design and after a long day using it my hand doesn't hurt. The one problem is that I have had the right click go out on me a couple of times. But i took it to the apple store and they replaced it free of charge.

    I love this ... but

    • Written by from Harrogate

    I love the design, the feel, and the speed of using it.
    But, I am having big problems with it, after using the mouse for about 6 weeks, the mouse's connection to the computer became unreliable. It seems to happen for no apparent reason, and the issue has progressively got worse. Now it doesn't work at all.
    I find this so frustrating because the magic mouse is great, in fact I love my magic mouse ... when it works.
    I have read that other people are having this problem too. Apple please sort this issue out because you have what is otherwise a fantastic product.

    The moue is great, but...

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    The mouse is great! I use it at work and home. But sometime when I touch my Apple mouse I feel like I am touching a razor, particularly when I am working in a cold room and aluminium body and sharp sides makes that feeling even worse.

    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.
