    Sexy but unusable

    • Written by from Halifax

    If all you do is browse the web and read emails and all you want is a sexy looking mouse with a cool touch-scroll feature... go for it. 5 stars.

    If you're a professional that has to actually get work done either in code or pixels... don't waste your money. Buy a Logitech Revolution or MS Laser 7000. The 7000 is an amazing mouse. Super lightweight. Very ergonomic. Plenty of functionality. Simple to use.

    Pros:
    - Sexy looks
    - Scrolling is brilliant

    Cons:
    - Too thin. Only works as a finger mouse. Moving or 'kicking' with palm is impossible.
    - Having to lift the index finger to right click with the middle finger is very awkward.
    - Swipe gesture is very awkward. A simple thumb button is so much easier.
    - Should have a matte surface to make scrolling smoother (less friction).
    - Very heavy (but lithium cells might lighten it a bit).
    - Slow tracking.
    - Extremely limited functionality with just one button (or two if you insist) and only one usable gesture.

    Apple hasn't made a good mouse since the ADB II. End of story. But I guess it makes sense for them not to compete with MS and Logitech. For a casual user (my mom)... this mouse would be fine.

    Best mouse ever

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I've been using a mouse since they were first introduced and this is by far the most useful, fast and effective input device I've had the pleasure of using on a daily basis.

    I use all of the shortcuts with the touch surface for maximum productivity on my 27" iMac, like switching between desktops, scrolling etc.

    I wasn't sure if I'd like it at first (I was a dedicated user of the original Microsoft Intellipoint user) but once I saw how much time it saved me and how much more productive I could be, it was love everlasting. Been using it for over a year and anything less makes me frown.

    Awful. Glad to be rid of it.

    • Written by from Frederick

    After dealing with the awful thing I am finally rid of it and thrilled to have a Logitech mouse with real buttons. The Magic Mouse is wildly oversensitive - look at it funny and you're on a page you had no intention of going to. I really did try to live with it but it made trying to do anything online a nightmare. It's an elegant concept, but badly, badly executed. Worst Apple product I ever owned with the possible exception of the latest iPod Nano...

    Gimmicks over useability

    • Written by from southminster

    The touch element of this product is erratic to the point of being unusable. Even with a third party app used to decrease sensitivity and remove some of the unnecessary gestures, this mouse is still completely useless in a large number of programs. It is also difficult to use with with google maps and other programs that require the user to click and drag.

    This mouse is completely incompatible with Adobe creative Suite software.

    The worst piece of Apple hardware i've used to date.

    Shoddy battery casing

    • Written by from Three Forks

    The mouse work well except when the batteries become lose in the battery casing. Then the mouse pointer stalls or becomes erratic. Apple needs to fix this problem.

    Really nice...unless you are working on Word, Powerpoint or Excel

    • Written by from 秦野市

    I really loved my magic mouse first time I got it. It was an amazing piece of technology.... until I started to use it on microsoft Office. Its absolutely difficult to use it in powerpoint when you making slides, because it starts behaving erratically. It starts jumping from one slide to another erratically...also does the same in word and Excel. Extremely difficult to control. I turned off the inertia option in the mouse preferences, hoping it would solve the problem...but no! The same problem happens with Adobe photoshop too. I behaves well with web browser. I wanted to give this mouse 5 stars first....but now maybe just 2 or even 1. Sad...specially since its from apple. Disappointed.

    CAUTION PRO USERS

    • Written by from Albuquerque

    I love Apple products and ordered this beautiful mouse only to discover that it is completely unusable in the software I spend my whole day using. First off, the Bluetooth connectivity with my MacPro is a disaster. The cursor jitters and stops and starts all of the time. I cant get a precise click on any object I'm going for. But the worst of it is the ultra-sensitive touch surface. I find the screen sliding all over and zooming in and out constantly. Beware Adobe users, this will slow your productivity down to the point of pure frustration.

    BTW, I've tried 2 Magic Mice with the same results. Back to the Mighty Mouse I go…

    Unreliable connection

    • Written by from Newton

    The mouse loses its Bluetooth connection roughly once an hour. Replacing the batteries doesn't help; it's just a fundamentally unreliable piece of hardware. I keep a trackpad handy and the mouse system preferences open at all times so I can reconnect it. I'm pretty much ready to buy a USB mouse and throw this in the trash. Apple should make a USB Magic Mouse in order to combine reliability and multitouch functionality.

    Bravo To Apple

    • Written by from Mississauga

    Finally a wireless mouse that works great. I have had previous apple mice that I had to force apart to clean the scroll wheel then glue back together. This one I have had for two months now and it has caused me no problems. I like its design and it's special features. It took you some time but it looks as if you got it right this time.

    Good Mouse

    • Written by from Noblesville

    This mouse is extremely sleek and low profile, but once again Apple has designed it for style and not comfort. The mouse did not slide well on my granite counter top, so I placed a mouse pad underneath and it worked like a breeze. Absolutely no connection problems whatsoever. Overall, good mouse and I would recommend the mouse to any friend.

    Complete piece of junk!

    • Written by from Edmonton

    Mine was getting disconnected fairly frequently, like 1-5 times a week for months. Now it just doesn't work and will not be discovered by Bluetooth even though it has fully-charged Apple AA batteries.
    Apple, why can't you just make a wired USB version?!?!?

    Mediocre at best

    • Written by from Eastern Passage

    Design-wise this mouse is as good as it gets, and the functionality is great (scrolling and gestures work well). There are however a few things wrong with this mouse, one key issue for me is battery life. I am lucky to get a week using regular batteries, so I purchased a Mobee charger (which is another story... lol). Another issue is if you play any games at all. I'm not a huge gamer but if I want to pop open Batman and play for a few minutes once a month, I'd like to have a mouse that can handle games in a decent manner which is definitely not this one - this mouse is super hard to control for gaming.

    Overall it's a great mouse for very light computer users, but not for users who rely on their computer for any advanced tasks at all.

    Simply amazing!

    • Written by from Matthews

    After using the mouse provided with my iMac 7+ years ago, I finally caved in and bought a new mouse. I'm glad I waited! The magic mouse is amazing! It's slim, and definitely made for smaller hands. I find it hard to use the wireless mouse I have for my MacBook since that one is so clunky.

    I was iffy at first from reading the reviews, but after going into the store, I instantly fell in love. Having no scroll wheel is wonderful and being able to flip through pages you looked at last with a swipe of your finger is an added bonus.

    And rechargeable batteries are included. I do not regret this purchase at all. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat. I even plan on buying another one for my MacBook.

    What's so "Multi-touch" about it?

    • Written by from Nepean

    Sure, it beautifully solves the roller ball problem that the mighty mouse had, but in doing so it completely sacrifices the "third button" the mighty mouse had. It was a useful button, and was introduced because it is useful, something the old mouse didn't have. Also, sacrifices the side buttons. Why? What's multi touch about it? All I'm doing with it is scrolling....The "swipe" is SUCH an awkward motion to do, why include it? The
    "control zoom" has always been available, this isn't anything new! So really, it's a wireless mighty mouse with functionality compromises and a fix for the roller ball. I'm going back to might mouse, unless this is redesigned. Very weak from Apple.

    Giving Up

    • Written by from Charlotte

    After a year of constantly replacing batteries (yes, many battery changes in a year) I have to throw in the towel. The mouse constantly loses connection. It is beyond frustrating to have to jimmy it around and hope that it finds its way again so I can finish whatever task I am working on.
    My Office Manager jokes that MM is either having a good day or a bad day. And unfortunately for us, it's a bad day 5 days out of 7.
    I thought I might have gotten a lemon but it seems other Apple MM users are experiencing the same problems.
    Also, I have started using it for a drawing program and it is impossible to control fine, fine detail being that the speed is jumpy.
    So sad for us that we will be going back to unattractive but functional (and most likely) old school mice.
    Please Apple, find a way to improve upon this good looking but non functioning mouse.
