    For College Students

    • Written by from la quinta

    This mouse is quite nice. It is sleek and it is beautiful. However, if you are in college and are debating whether or not to get this mouse, i would suggest no. I bought this and i am rather unhappy with the dual finger swipe options. If you have a laptop, do not get the mouse. Buy lion and use the trackpad. It is better and more convenient. Don't be like me and have it sit near your computer all the time and never use it.

    Cheaply Made

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    This does not appear to be among Apples's finest moments. Battery compartment can fall open after a little use. Battery drains fast....It's hard to resist a wireless mouse but Track Pad is a better deal.

    Ergonomically awful

    • Written by from Moscow City

    The thing is so thin your fingers would heart after about half an hour of actively surfing the web. It doesn't seem so hi-technological when you realize that a product full of such a nice features was just not so well designed. I'd rather buy a Microsoft's ergonomic mouse.

    Great idea. Less than great execution.

    • Written by from Duns Creek

    Don't get me wrong, the IDEA of the wireless Magic Mouse is great. The ability to scroll with just the touch of a finger on its smooth surface is wonderful. Not getting hung up in a cord is terrific.

    Now, if only the little darling would stay connected without me having to use my track pad once or twice a day to "find Bluetooth mouse." And if only the actual mousing experience wasn't so sluggish.

    I'm a graphic designer. The mouse is a precision tool for me. Well, it used to be. With the Magic Mouse it's kinda "well the cursor is NEAR where you want it, isn't that good enough?"

    I think I'd put up with the cord just to have a mouse that stayed connected to my mac, and moved as well as my old mouse on my previous mac. Or maybe I'll just buy a trackball. Yeah, that's an idea. Buy a trackball. Right, over to the store for me...

    Magic mouse

    • Written by from Manchester

    It does everything a mouse has to do. It does it well for being wireless. The only downside which is a real killer for me is the scrolling. It ruins just about everything. It is often unresponsive or simply lags on movement. Without this defect it would be perfect.

    Works great when it pairs

    • Written by from Mayer

    I have had the Magic Mouse for over a year. After six months it started to un-pair. Had trouble with it reconnecting. Sometimes it pairs with another Mac in the next room. Liked all the features of the mouse. Really liked the no wheel. I have a Bluetooth Mouse from Logitech that I use that does not have all these connect problems.

    Hi-tech but tooooo heavy

    • Written by from Raleigh

    I like all its techs. But it's too heavy for me to remove. My hand gets tired after 5-minute using. And it seems the mouse lacks of human engineering. I feel uncomfortable resting my hand on it.

    Impossible in Adobe programs

    • Written by from Orlando

    This mouse is infuriating in Illustrator and InDesign. It will randomly scroll, especially when you're dragging something on your board. It's got some cool features and if you're not using those programs, it's a cool mouse but as soon as you try to do some real work in high caliber programs, it just completely fails. The options should at least have the option to shut off scroll in certain programs.

    Needs Work

    • Written by from Fargo

    This is an incredibly innovative product that still needs a whole lot of work. I bought this mouse because I wanted to take full advantage of the finger motions in Lion. As far as the finger motions go this mouse is great. The tracking is smooth and accurate. It is however, the most unergonomic device I have ever used. It feels plain awkward. Unless you're absolutely crazy about finger motions (sadly this is the only mouse on the market that supports them) save your money, and buy a Logitec for half the price.

    It could be perfect

    • Written by from London

    I have to say, I love this mouse. The only issue is that it randomly disconnects. It wasn't always this way. It worked flawlessly for the first couple of months, but over time it got worse. Now I every time I wake up my Mac and try to do something it disconnects and then takes a while before it reconnects. I think I'm going to try the Magic Trackpad next.

    It's okay i guess...

    • Written by from Maitland

    The mouse has a sleek modern design to it, and I like how secondary clicking is available. But, there is no way to click a mouse scrolling wheel, and that compromises quite a few things I would like to do.

    Inferior product

    • Written by from Vancouver

    The design and concept behind Magic Mouse are superb but unfortunately the execution is a clear miss. I am not sure how Apple's quality control segment did not mark this one as a failure. The mouse literally behaves how it wishes from day to day. The scrolling is choppy or hesitates and takes a minute to catch up, but the biggest irritation is when I go to use the mouse and before my hand touches it I have already been sent back to a previously viewed webpage. There is a clear flaw in the sensitivity feature. Sorely disappointed.

    Looks great but ends there

    • Written by from Rockingham

    Not for long fingers

    • Written by from Bell Gardens

    Whoever designed this mouse probably had very short fingers, because I find it very uncomfortable to use it. I can see how a person with small to average fingers can use it, but it's too flat for people with longer fingers.

    Don't buy one if you use key commands

    • Written by from Hyde Park

    Very sleek, very stylish, nice to feel, but also very skiddish. If you use the command key for anything, you better get your hand away from this thing because your screen will start to zoom frantically. Holding command and swiping the mouse zooms your screen and this happens involuntarily ALL THE TIME. I'm a graphic designer, so I encounter this problem constantly. This mouse ended up being a nice looking seventy dollar annoyance. When it comes down to it, the best apple mouse I've ever had was the one from 1991 that had a square button and a short twisty chord.

    Just don't lift your hand

    • Written by from Camano Island

    Many things about this mouse are cool - the looks, the streamlined feel - but unlike every other mouse I've owned I can't take my hand off it. I do take my hand off my mouse to pick up a cup of coffee, etc but 30% of the time when I put my hand back on, instead of being ready to scroll or click the mouse reads the touch as a back click and does exactly that. It's annoying when I'm reading but if I'm doing any online games and say paused to answer the phone or take that sip of coffee, all my work is gone and then the mouse is lucky I don't own a shotgun. I also don't like the number of batteries the thing eats up. We've had this mouse for over a year but its days are numbered.

    I am a new mac user, switched just recently from PC.

    The apple magic mouse looks great, but I can't say the same about its performance.

    The mouse is a little uncomfortable to use - mainly because the curvature doesn't match the arc of my hand. I have to constantly keep my fingers slightly straight to avoid accidental touching or clicking.

    I'm quite disappointed, feature-wise. I would expect a $70 mouse to at least have a button for expose for more fluent movements. It makes me think that apple has put form over function for this one.

    As the mouse is wireless, batteries must be changes frequently. I am a student who uses the computer from the moment I wake up, which means the batteries seemingly lasts shorter for me than for users who don't extensively use the computer. Rechargeable batteries have an even shorter charge - more charging for me. I wish apple had provided us with the same mouse, but with a wired option. I now feel more inclined to use the mouse that came with my wacom tablet - ugly and bulky, but it works wirelessly and includes no batteries (magnetic).

    I find the edges to be uncomfortable. Fingers don't seem to glide over it as well as a trackpad for some reason. I always go back to the Mighty Mouse which I love for form and functionality.
