    I love this mouse. but it isnt the best for bigger hands. the amazing thinness is kind of hard to make something productive out of it. My hand is getting tired as i use it. But it is still the best mouse i have owned

    Works great!

    • Written by from bellflower

    The only reason why I don't give it a 5 out of 5 is because the battery door keeps popping out, its not that big of a deal but they should have made it a little more different to where it wouldn't pop out with any little touch to the opening button other than that, I would recommend this product to anyone.

    Great Product!

    • Written by from Fresno

    Overall the mouse is extremely stylish and reliable. Its performance is fantastic and well worth the money. The only downfall of the mouse, is its thin design. A regular wireless mouse is fatter and thicker which allows your fingers and palm to rest upon. It seems as if you need to find a new comfortable way to hold and operate this mouse. After an extense amount of usage over time, your hand begins to get tired and restless. But overall, it sets a new standard for mouses or should I say...mice. Haha.

    Great Mouse

    • Written by from New Windsor

    I love the new magic mouse. Very smooth operation and able to perform all mouse functions with ease. I gave it only four stars because for folks with big hands such as myself it is slightly uncomfortable to hold, but not too bad.

    Fantastic, but...

    • Written by from Canton

    I was use to my basic Logitech mouse, so when I first got the Magic Mouse that came with my iMac I hated it. It was just too heavy and felt awkward. So I stuck the thing into a drawer and there it set for almost a year. When my other mouse went toes-up, I pulled the Apple out of mothballs and started using it. Wow, what was I thinking when I stuck it in the drawer. This thing is great!

    It does take some getting use to. Be patient, it is worth it. The mouse combines the best of 2 technologies, mouse and touch pad. The added swipe and tap gestures give you so much more control at your finger tips. Safari is especially enhanced by these features.

    I would have given it 5 stars if it weren't for two things:
    -It's not a good mouse for portability. It is heavier than the typical mouse and the top surface is glass. One bad drop on a hard surface and there goes $69.
    -Battery life is awful. This mouse gets hungry a lot. I have to feed it new batteries every 4-6 weeks. Rechargeable batteries are a must.

    Pretty Good

    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.

    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.

    Hi Tech

    • Written by from White Castle

    Love the touch sensitive skin that eliminates need for a scroll wheel and buttons. It takes a little getting used to. I use it with a Mac Book Pro. No battery or communication issues.

    I find it a little tiny for my normal to small size hand.

    I just ordered a second one for my Mac mini.

    AWESOME

    • Written by from san jose

    this mouse is awesome!! I love the touch feature. Some cons would be that the battery drains pretty fast so I would get rechargeable ones. Also, after four months of having this mouse, the silver paint is scraping off, revealing the black background.

    Nice Design

    • Written by from Newcastle

    I like the design. Quality built. Thin and easy to carry.
    It matches up my white macbook nicely.

    The batt doesn't drain like what people mentioned on the review. You will need to turn off the mouse after use, just like other bluetooth mouse.

    Con: It does not have official driver for windows for scrolling.

    Very Convenient!!

    • Written by from Mount Pleasant

    When I bought Magic Mouse with my Macbook Pro, I was a little skeptical because when I last used a wireless mouse, it just didn't quite work properly. I was amazed when I turned on my mouse and it automatically synced with my computer and how fast it's response time was! And it does everything the commercial said it would do! I only gave the Magic Mouse a four star because it can't zoom like the Multi-track Pad that is built into the Macbook Pro or like what you can do on an iPod Touch or iPhone when you need to enlarge a picture. But all in all I am pleased in the performances of Magic Mouse! I primarily use a mouse for quick movements and ease of use when I am doing photo editing, Apple's Magic Mouse gives me the quick movements through it's light-weight body and it provides me with an ease of use through it's slim form. I highly recommend this mouse to all who love editing graphics (whether in motion pictures or still pictures).

    Takes a bit of getting used to

    • Written by from Belleville

    Yes, it's definitely the coolest mouse ever; but if you set it up in 2-button mode, it's very easy to click the left button when you're trying to click the right, or vice versa. In other words, the boundary between the 2 "buttons" is ill-defined -- a minor but significant annoyance -- which is why it gets 4 stars instead of 5 -- but not significant enough to keep me from using it daily, or recommending it. I have two, actually -- one for office, one for home, since I schlep my Macbook back and forth.

    A huge step forward and a minor step back from the Mighty Mouse.

    • Written by from independence

    The good - Extremely comfortable in the hand, tracks on almost any surface with ease, very stylish, and has the perfect weight with it's batteries installed.

    The bad - the touch surface is extremely sensitive - almost too sensitive at times. The built-in software for OS X doesn't exploit all of the capability of this mouse, and there's no way to edit the default gestures.

    The review -

    I had a Wireless Mighty Mouse (you know, the one with the scroll ball). After getting a jammed-up scroll ball for the 150th time, Genius Bar swapped me to the Magic Mouse. Brought it home, set it up, and found it much more comfortable to use. Scrolling is much more responsive than on the previous mouse, and the added inertia scroll is a nice feature.

    Where the mouse falls short of the 5th star is software. While it does go through batteries a little faster than the Mighty Mouse did, it's not horrendously bad about it like other high performance wireless and bluetooth mice are (I'm looking at you, Logitech). However, this mouse is so much more capable of gesture recognition than Apple gives it credit for. With the Mouse Software Update 1.0, you get 2 finger swiping for forward and back. 3rd party tools give you much more functionality than this, including the ability use the top of the mouse as a trackpad or a remote for your favorite media programs (VLC, Boxee, XBMC, Front Row, iTunes...)

    Add the built-in ability for this mouse to have more functionality and I'll give it 5 stars. Until then, I'm staying with 4.

    Good but not all features compatible

    • Written by from Bellingham

    I have OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and have been purposefully avoiding updating to Snow Leopard as I like Leopard so much. I got a Magic Mouse for my birthday and was very disappointed that I have to update to a new OS less than a year after I got the computer for one function of the mouse that is so important.

    However, I like this mouse a lot. I use a Mighty Mouse in the labs at school and hate them. So I highly recommend this mouse - the bluetooth wireless is invaluable and I have had no problems with connectivity.

    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!

    AMAZING!!!

    • Written by from SEATTLE

    I've owned two of the previous wireless mice made by Apple. They were great until they lost the ability to scroll. This new one is amazing! I have confidents that Apple has fixed those issues with the old and made this new one even better. I don't know how they do it, but they've it well.

    Very Cool

    • Written by from Gainesville

    The early reviews knocked the Magic Mouse, but I have to say I love it. It's not perfect, in fact you'll need to download the free application MagicPrefs to take full advantage of all the things it can do (early frustrations with lack a of a native middle click nearly made me send it back until I found MagicPrefs). Even with the additional support MagicPrefs adds, many commands (multitouch)are still are insanely difficult to implement. So with all the negatives why do I still give this 4 out of 5 stars? Its the coolest input device since the touch pad, and the first new idea to come to the mouse in over a decade. Lastly, but not least, its fun to use.

    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.

    Almost Perfect

    • Written by from Mesa

    I use the Adobe Suite all day at work and love the magic mouse.
    Great Features:
    + It is great when maneuvering around an Illustrator document or while editing an image in Photoshop. Just a flick of the finger and I can navigate the entire page... also great for web browsing.
    + Scrolling up and down and all around is great
    + 20x better than Mighty Mouse and better than any other mouse I have tried


    Improvements Needed:
    - Needs incremental zoom... after 2 months of use I still cannot get a handle on zooming to the correct size window (trying to hit exactly 100% takes 3 or 4 tries)
    - While I am zoomed up close on a graphic it is difficult to click on an object without also causing my finger to wiggle making the page move.
    - The shape of the mouse is great styling but difficult ergonomically. After a few hours of use my hand cramps up, but then again I have not found a mouse that alleviates this, so maybe that is unfair to say.
