    It's Awesome, But.....

    • Written by from Grass Valley

    I do agree with most of the reviewers that the magic mouse is indeed awesome. It can handle any job out there, but if you use it on surfaces that are not granite or some other hard surfaces it tends to wear a nice little area free of any surface treatments that have been applied. I think it is when they made the magic mouse with the two little runners that run the length of the mouse, they just wear the surface out. I would recommend a mouse pad if you are using it on wood.

    Works Great, but HEAVY.

    • Written by from Calgary

    The mouse works great for mousing duties. However, if you are a graphic designer, then you'll need a mouse that it more accurate and sensitive. The features are neato, and after using this mouse for only a couple of hours, I was completely used to it. It also works on ANY surface. The only really negative thing is that it is very heavy. Ironically, the weight of the mouse with no batteries is just about the perfect weight. I read somewhere that Li-ion batteries may be lighter, but I think that they would have to be a lot lighter for you to work with it for a long period of time (ie. 3 hours +) and not get a tired wrist/hand. Good price and functionality for a bluetooth mouse though.

    Have to change batteries every 3 weeks

    • Written by from New York

    The mouse itself has incredible design and best scrolling I've ever used on a mouse. Even compared to a Mighty Mouse, which scroll ball has to be cleaned weekly. The cleaning procedure of this one is done by my jeans. I give it 4 stars because of extensive battery usage (have to change batteries every 3 weeks, iMac is used 8-12 hours a day) and sharp edges, which brings some discomfort on a long day use, especially I feel it when doing repetitive tasks. Looking forward for Apple to fix battery issue. Meanwhile I've ordered a pack of Eneloop rechargeables.

    Insanely MAGIC

    • Written by from fishers

    Who ever knew that the normal scroll-wheel mouse would ever change. The way that you just push the wheel up or down, but now the Magic mouse just is awesome.

    The Good- This is the best mouse that can fit in the palm of your hand. It is still a point and click mouse, but the experience while scrolling and maneuvering images is just beautifully articulated on you Mac's screen.

    The Bad- Does not work with any of the windows family computers. Why? I do not know but i do know, That they say it's bluetooth but when i turned my laptops bluetooth on it didn't read or even find the mouse so...

    Finally it is the best feeling mouse ever. The only reason i put a 4 is that it doesn't work on a windows based machine.

    I LUV THIS MOUSE!

    • Written by from Portland

    My ONLY complaint with this mouse is the lack of Expose support. As soon as Apple releases a software update for this then all will be right in the world.

    Poor battery life

    • Written by from BROOKLYN

    Multitouch is fantastic! Battery life is very frustrating. Energizer alkaline batteries which were supplied with the mouse lasted for 36 days only, which is a far cry from Logitech mouse I had before.
    On the side note it is working with Windows Vista (Bootcamp). The functionality is very limited though, just left and right click. I didn't expect multitouch would work on Windows, but I think at least Apple should allow to use scroll up and down.

    Slick design

    • Written by from London

    Very well design and stylish. It has limited option as per Apple software included, but third party application makes it fun and joy. There are unlimited gestures and options to choose and it works better then multi-touch on macbooks.

    Works OK but needs to bring up Dashboard

    • Written by from FORT MORGAN

    This mouse won't work on my clear desk pad but works fine on a mouse pad. Wish is would bring up the dashboard with one click like the regular mouse. A good mouse but overall a wash.

    Finger happy mouse.

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Got my Magic Mouse a week ago and it is pretty darn great. Scrolling is truly magical with the stressless way it gives such ease and relaxation to ones fingers. Only regret is that it doesn't allow you to set multiple click buttons the same as I have set up on my Mighty Mouse. I keep them side both side by side but the Mighty Mouse feels like a hand weight compared to sleek lightness of the Magic Mouse. Smooth and rather sexy come to think of it. Love it and would give it a 5 1/2 stars.

    Pricey but good product

    • Written by from cold lake

    I reluctantly bought the magic mouse for 2 reason. First all the bad reviews and second the price. I've been using the mouse for the last two weeks and so far I'm well pleased with it. I use it on my macbook air and it works great. The only down fall is the price.
    I had to try a couple times for my mac to connect to it properly but once it recognized the mouse I haven't had a problem since.


    In short if you're an Apple junky such as myself and don't mind shelling out the $$$ for a mouse do it!!!

    Great

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    I just got my first MacBook Pro and as much as I love the track pad on my laptop, I'm lost without a mouse. So I purchased a Magic Mouse. This thing is great, all the different gestures you can do, it works 10 ft away if I want it to, I really enjoy this product. The only issue I have with it is the battery cover on the bottom seems cheap. It's loose all the time, and I can tell it might need replacing fairly soon just because it doesn't seem to fit tight enough. But that's the only issue I have. Another great product from Apple. But it's time to give us a price break on your products though, you've made enough, we will always buy your products, just hook us up with some private discount codes or something. I think it's the least you can do.

    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.

    Amazing Mouse with One Shortfall

    • Written by from Erie

    I have been using this mouse with my 27" iMac for almost 6 months. I love most everything about it so I'll just skip to what bugs me:

    My work requires fast and precise mouse movement in combination with several keyboard shortcuts and button combinations. If I can't do these things quickly and effortlessly, my efficiency and productivity drops. I find that with this mouse, the wonderful touch-sensitivity that makes it such a joy to use for surfing the web and "normal" use, also makes it do things involuntarily when trying to work quickly in the various Adobe CS applications. For example, the slightest brush against the trackpad while holding down spacebar+command to zoom-click in and out of an image in photoshop will cause photoshop to zoom in or out uncontrollably. At first I thought this was minor drawback that I'd get used to. However when you are trying to work quickly at a professional level, this lack of control gets VERY frustrating, and forces me to constantly think about keeping my fingers from moving across the surface of the trackpad, stealing focus from the task at hand.At this point I haven't yet decided if this is better or worse than having to deal with the constant track-ball clogging of the previous Apple mouse incarnation.

    I should also mention that the mouse sometimes drops its bluetooth connection and won't reconnect, requiring me to restart – but I suspect this is an issue with the iMac's bluetooth system, rather than the mouse.

    Mouse makes my fingers hurt

    • Written by from New Ulm

    I loved the look and feel of this mouse and it's new design. However, I use my computer so much that after a few hours, my fingers start to fall asleep. It seems to be the fingers that rest along the right side of the mouse. I was disappointed when this starting happening, both because I loved the mouse and wanted it to work, but also because it is so expensive and would have hoped for more. I need to find a differnt mouse, I am just not sure what I should get for my iMac 27. Just hope the next one works out better for me.

    Final Cut Pro users.

    • Written by from Nottingham

    I love the sensitivity of the mouse and have mine set up for a two button system for editing. Takes a couple of goes to get used to the multi directional swiping. I've found that I've ended up jogging through footage unwillingly or through the timeline thanks to an accidental swipe. This is my own fault for sure, but it does happen and when you're in the editing zone it can get on your nerves.

    Sleek looking, works really well and the batteries lasts for a good couple of months before they need a change.

    Great Mouse

    • Written by from SHILOH

    Probably the best wireless mouse I have ever used. Feels proper in your hands, great features such as the ability to move back and forth on web pages with the swipe of the fingers. I also like the ability to scroll without a wheel. Connects easily and able to use the right click. The only downside I can see is it is rather expensive but I hope to keep it a long time and the quality feels like that will be a strong possibility.

    Love it.

    • Written by from Malden

    I've never been a fan of wireless mice - replacing batteries is far worse than dealing with a wire on my desk - but this is the best mouse I've ever used (and I hated all previous Apple mice). It's smooth, comfortable and the finger gestures work perfectly. $69 is a lot to spend on a mouse (hence the 4 stars, not 5).
