    Apple Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Gainesville

    I was a bit skeptical about getting this mouse because of all of the reviews I have read here and on other sites. Sometimes I am brave enough to take the plunge especially because someone's experience or opinion might not reflect my own. After receiving this mouse it was a breeze to set up. The mouse took a bit to get used to but after some days of using it it became easier and easier. The gestures can be used and it makes this whole experience awesome. I have average size hands and I have no problems unlike some reviews I have read. The only thing I don't like about the mouse if I turn it off I have to reconnect it to the MacBook Pro every single time. Small prize to pay for such an amazing mouse. Apple does it again!

    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.

    It's MAGIC

    • Written by from mt.pearl

    all the different gestures you can do with this touch sensitive shell thing is awesom and
    very efficient sometimes.The bluetooth actually works nicely, it looks great and feels really
    smooth in your hand. The small sizeis easy to pack along with your lappy and you can adjust the
    sensitivity of the touch on the mouse and the arrow movement speed on the screen.
    Awesom invention Apple, keep at it!

    not for gaming, heavy battery consumption

    • Written by from Madison

    i really like the feel of this mouse, and love the multitouch when it's implemented well in the app i'm using. but there are a few things that drive me nuts about this mouse:

    1. this mouse eats AA batteries like a hyper kid eats candy from a Halloween pumpkin. i go through a pair a month. makes me wish for a wired version.

    2. right-click is unreliable. after enabling it in system preferences, sometimes i get a right click and sometimes i don't. not a fan of the alternative (having to hold down control key).

    3. can't tweak scroll speed sensitivity. try playing a game with this mouse that uses the scroll wheel as an input and you'll see what i mean.

    i'm just about ready to dump this mouse for one with distinct buttons and a regular scroll wheel.

    Great Overall Mouse

    • Written by from Alhambra

    Apple's first true mouse, I used the Apple hockey puck mouse in high school and never really liked the mighty mouse. Since then I've only bought high-end Logitech mice like the VX Nano, Revolution, MX 1000 and MX 1100 etc. I've stuck to Logitech for a few reasons, battery life, quality, Nano USB recievers, ergonomic feel and design, all of which are superior to the competition. However, with that being said, the Apple magic mouse will be the first mouse i will buy not with the Logitech brand. It has great feel and everything feels so very natural. It has some weight to it which is actually beneficial to the finger gestures on the mouse. Although you may consider this mouse pricey, I will not comment and will not rate it based on price only overall quality, the reason being is that I believe I people's price preference changes the overall rating of the product too drastically.
    Now the quirks...the back and forward gestures are very hard to do depending on the surface of your table or where your at. Instead i wish they added some sort of side buttons (yea right!).
    On a further note; we have the mighty mouse hooked up to the new 27" iMac in-store demo (not apple store) and the mouse was working over 50 feet away through 5 bookshelves and wifi signal and several metal stands.

    NEW MOUSE!!!!! WOW....WOW

    • Written by from Columbus

    Just finished playing with this bad boy and the Mall of Georgia and let me tell you. It's the mighty mouse on the same juice that made Captain America a super soldier! The new touch interface is near as sensitive as the glass touch panel on the macbook line up. Works like a charm and the scrolling is spot on. This is one of the craftiest updates I have ever seen. Now if I had $69.00 to buy one!
    A+ Product!

    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.

    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.

    Wait justa Magic Minute!

    • Written by from Englewood

    Great look! The Multi-Touch functions are nice but it's not very comfortable to rest your hand upon. The biggest deal breaker for me is the lack of Dashborad and Expose! Two functions I use alot, so as cool as it may be its not truly an upgrade. I think I will be returning mine.

    A fine product, this mouse

    • Written by from Heiligenhaus

    I like this mouse from the very first moment, I used it.

    It gives a good feeling and is a fine extension to the built in track-panel of my MacBook Pro.

    Recommendation for this wonderful mouse.

    Great for what it is

    • Written by from Calgary

    Don't buy this mouse expecting it to be good for gaming, or work particularly well outside of OS X. It won't. The touch-based scrolling just doesn't work with applications that weren't designed to use it.

    That said, used within OS X for most any application you might use, it's awesome. The gestures are simple and intuitive. It pairs really easily with your computer, while being very responsive. The batteries last for quite a while. And, ergonomically, it fits me very nicely. Within Lion, support for some new gestures has also popped up. Definitely the ideal mouse for general OS X use.

    Hard to get used to

    • Written by from Debrecen

    I don't own this mouse, but use it constantly in college, and I must say, although it looks ergonomic, I find it too small and heavy. The pads on the bottom get dirt constantly, which makes the movement stutter. The other problem I had, is that the surface is very sensitive, you need a whole new approach for moving, and clicking. The swipes are great, but the surface is sticky, so you need to clean it constantly. I wanted to buy this mouse, before I started using it, because I really wanted to free up a USB port (The only 2 USBs on the MBP are a joke), but this is just too expensive, and not worth it for me, I would rather go to a wireless, but not multitouch mouse!

    The Best Mouse Ever!

    • Written by from Hickory

    This is the best two-button, scrolling mouse ever made - period. I'm buying one for all the staff in my office. No more track peas to clean. Disregard all negative reviews of this product. They are all from reviewers who seem to want something this mouse was not designed for - middle click, more than two buttons, etc. If you find the cursor moves when you try to swipe you've got coordination issues that can't be fixed this product. No one that I've shown the product to has had any problems whatsoever. It's very intuitive.

    Design over Usability

    • Written by from Burbank

    The only thing good on this mouse is the touch scroll. Everything else that is on the Apple Mouse is missing. For one, this is a two button mouse. The Apple Mouse is a 4 button mouse. So no more mouse shortcuts via a mouse click to dashboard/spaces/expose.

    Next is the ergonomics. I tested the Magic Mouse with iMovie, scrolling in the timeline via touch. I then surfed the web, testing the touch scroll. My wrist hurt after 15-20 minutes of using this mouse.

    Apple used to be a company about great design esthetics and ease of use. They are unfortunately becoming just a design company. Nothing more.

    They need to add a third button and raise the mouse at least a half of centimeter.

    excellent product, however not worth anywhere near $70.

    • Written by from Lake Zurich

    the design and function of this mouse is perfect. everything works as advertised. very sleek and elegant. however, $70? way too much for this mouse. even tho it's a fantastic mouse, it's not worth $70. just because things are overpriced, doesn't mean it's a bad product. would still highly recommend, but either cringe and spend the $70 or get one new or used on other sites for less.

    One of the best mouse ever, but...

    • Written by from Lakewood

    Well I would like to say that I love this mouse. There are some great things and some things that I do wish it did. I like how there is no longer a scroll ball that after time doesn't work. Here's the but, I do miss that scroll ball button feature that allows me to jump to the dashboard. I do wish that they do add an option in the settings to allow a way to add a click somehow to allow quick access to the dashboard with out having to click on the icon on the dock or keyboard. Other than that I love it.
