    Excellent product!

    • Written by from Columbia

    I am not sure what the negative reviews are about but this is an excellent product and works great with my MBA. I use it on a hard desk surface and have not any issues with friction and I also adjusted tracking in the preferences to my liking.

    functions but immense wrist pain

    • Written by from Washington

    I've had this mouse for over a year now. It still functions as it should, but I have developed wrist problems from using it. Specifically, after several hours of use, my wrist becomes sore and starts making horrible cracking sounds. If you have wrist problems, this probably is not the mouse for you.

    Very good mouse for Macbook pro!

    • Written by from Monterey Park

    I LOVE this mouse! I feel like it works great with my new Macbook pro with Retina Display. I read some of the other reviews on how the mouse would disconnect with the bluetooth on the computer, but I haven't had that problem occur it. I'm not sure if it will happen later on or not, but I have had the mouse for like 3 weeks and I feel its great. Its so easy and multipurpose. One thing i like is that you don't need a mouse pad! I don't know about you guys, but when i use a mouse pad it takes up like half the space on my desk. But this magic mouse doesn't need one! So convenient. Just a great mouse to use and play with.

    This mouse is Sexy!

    • Written by from Louisville

    Don't know any other way to put it. It is curved in all the right places... I looked at it and thought uh oh.. no scroll wheel... but then I tried playing with it. Scroll wheel NOT needed... you can simply swipe the top of it like an iPhone and iPad.

    Personally this is the best mouse I have ever experienced... and I suspect apple will eventually top it... they are good at that. But until then no one makes a better mouse!

    Useless - Way Too Slow

    • Written by from New York

    Even at the most sensitive and highest power settings the Magic Mouse is far too slow to be used. I had to revert to my Logitech because the Magic Mouse's tracking speeds were so slow. No matter what adjustment I made, It never was a usable mouse. IF there was just an adjustment that could make the tracking speed reasonable but there isn't

    Mine Now sits in a box, ( nice box, the packaging is good ) I used it for about a week, and could not stand it anymore, Horrible Product.

    Mouse won't behave

    • Written by from Scotts Valley

    This mouse came with my new iMac that I bought 2 weeks ago. I'd tried wireless mice years ago and hated them because everything kept zipping around, so I went back to a wired mouse. Thinking I should get with the 21st Century and maybe technology has improved, I let my beloved wired mouse go with my old computer. Big mistake. I'm a writer/editor and I do lots of highlight-cut-paste. I'd try to highlight something and the mouse jerked to another part of the page. Or a different page. Or went whizzing up and down pages. I'd try to read an article on-line and the page kept jiggling up and down or it would open another page. I called AppleCare twice. First time the tech had me uncheck all the Mouse items in Systems Preferences and set the mouse to Slow. Still misbehaved.

    On the 2nd call the tech said my Magic Mouse seems to be a "scroll mouse" that's going to scroll no matter what I want to do. Since I want to use it like a wired mouse, why not get one? "Does Apple still sell wired mice?" I almost wept with relief. "Yes," he assured me, "In any Apple store."

    So bye-bye wireless mouse.

    Good but dissapointing

    • Written by from Troy

    I have used another brand of wireless mouse forever, and I miss the comfort and style and ease of use.
    I have been using the new Magic Mouse for about six weeks now, which means I have gotten use to the difference. That was big at first but once I got use to the tracking difference and everything, I don't notice the difference that much, except for one big problem.
    I may be the only one in the world that has this problem, but when I left click something and drag it to drop it in a folder, the dang thing unclicks and I drop it in the wrong folder way too often. In other words, you have to hold the left mouse button down very firmly and make a conscientious effort not to let go until you are ready, then let go. With the other brand it did not require "thinking" to click and make extra effort to hold the button down.

    This is just the worst wireless mouse ever. It disconnects just constantly and takes a while to reconnect. I do not recommend this mouse to anyone. Buy a different one

    Batteries last between 4 - 2 months. Best to get rechargeable ones if you don't want to get frustrated.

    Worst Product Apple Makes

    • Written by from Walnut Cove

    This mouse works nicely...when it works. The bluetooth connection drops constantly, I literally have to reconnect it 5 times or more with less than 10 minutes of use. I tried looking to online forums for help, with suggestions ranging from "adding foil between batteries" to "don't move it too much". This is simply a terrible design flaw. I bought a $12 USB mouse and have had no issues with it at all. I would never recommend this product.

    Absolutely the worst APPLE product

    • Written by from Geneva

    It is a beautiful peace of industrial design but ultimately this is the worst mouse i ever used. I got it with my iMac and using MM is a frustration feast. For gaming it is useless due to the lack of simultaneous left/right mouse button detection but even worst, a single right mouse click detection is beyond awful. I was hoping that at least it will serve as goon MacBook mouse (i love the bluetooth idea and no usb dongle implementation). But even there this mouse fails miserably due to the same right click detection issues. Since i wanted BT mouse i eventually just threw away MM and settled with Razer Orochi. It's also far from perfect but there is not many BT mouse alternatives. This could have been a beautiful product if only APPLE worked as much on the functionality of MM as it worked on it's gorgeous looks.
    Do not buy.

    Experiencing the Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Aurora

    I enjoy this mouse for it's ease of operation.It is a programable device for sensitive to not so sensitive touch.You have choices when programing this device.Perhaps it not the best tool for drafting,especially if you have very large fingers that are attached to a huge hand.Balancing your fingers all day on this unquietly designed tool may prove a bit challenging for some.There are other mice available to help correct your situation.Gamers really can't substantiate its use ,hardly any body complains about that.They get a proper gaming tool for their needs.This little tool is an all around device to help work your top of the line computer to its fullest.I use the Magic charging device as well,great little invention and yes it really saves from those ,weekly battery changes!.The unit assembled easily and works ever so great.I have many friends who use both of these devices and never experienced the problems and all the drama that has been associated with these functioning tools.These devices were not meant to last a life time.I purchased a second for back up.Please rethink the use before you make that purchase then do what you feel one must do in that circumstance.Good luck

    love this mouse

    • Written by from Victoria

    very comfortable in the hand; clicking and scrolling functions are responsive and have a positive controlled feel. a real pleasure to use!

    been using it for about two months and battery life is fine so far. i would like to be able to customize the pointer i.e. make it larger - maybe add some colour. overall I am very satisfied with this mouse.

    Love/Hate this mouse

    • Written by from HOUSTON

    It is like one year to the day and it dies. I am now on my third mouse and it is showing signs of dying. It is eating batteries and it is constantly loosing connection. The signs of dying, I recognize them from the two times before. At $70 a pop it is getting ridiculous. I have a logitech mouse that is 5 years old and still works great. I keep pulling it back out as a back up while I wait for the new one to be delivered. Come on Apple if my Mac is so awesome could you not make a mouse that is awesome too? I am not going to order again, no matter how well it works between deaths, no matter how loyal I am, I would rather put my money elsewhere. :(

    3 Stars - an average of extremes

    • Written by from Larchmont


    1. The touch surface on top is far superior to the rollers on other mice, because it's (i) two dimensional and (ii) continuous (not subject to the "clicks" of most rollers). Side swipes are "back" and "forward" in Safari and I use them constantly.

    2. Well, #1 is it. But it's a big one…


    1. Right click is almost non-existent. In fact many reviewers assume there is NO right click. It's there, but (at least on my device) I must click at the very right edge in a certain spot, and even then it works only half the time.

    2. Ergonomic mess: sharp edges and low profile, as noted by many reviewers.

    3. Battery life - An ecological disaster if you don't use rechargeables

    Conclusion: Right-click fail will cause me to shop for a new mouse for gaming. A shame; I will miss the touch surface.

    Note on other reviews: mouse sensitivity is an O/S setting, my friends. Not an attribute of the mouse. If you have too much or too little "travel", change your settings!

    Apple magic mouse awesomeness!!

    • Written by from Grand Haven

    I was looking for a new mouse and i had already owned a Logitech mouse, it was a good mouse but i wanted to be able to use all the features that mac os offers. So i bought the apple magic mouse, best decision ever it is such a great mouse i use it for photo and video editing and other uses, the mouse is easy to use and really easy to set up just turn it on, turn on the bluetooth and you are done. I have had the mouse for 4 months and i use it everyday for at least 2 hours and it is still at 47 percent battery, and i haven't changed out the battery since i got it. I would recommend this mouse to anybody, thanks apple for making another awesome product.

    Poor compared to Apple's trackpads and even most other mouses

    • Written by from Wheat Ridge

    The Magic Mouse is anything but. The trackpads on the MacBooks and sold separately are far superior to the Magic Mouse. Apple, please put the optical sensor in the middle of the mouse, not at the front. Every other mouse since the dawn of time has done so. Placing it at the front effectively makes it a pointer, not a mouse, where only the movement at the front of the device is registered. The makes it a radical departure from most every other mouse I've ever used. Having the entire top of the mouse "pinch" down pinches your finger's flesh making it very uncomfortable. Using the gestures on the mouse is hit and miss; much like using gestures on a Wintel laptop trackpad, very inconsistent. The mouse is too thin to be held correctly, and has sharp edges; a serious design flaw where form has defeated function. Yep, it's real pretty. Unfortunately it is an ergonomic disaster. I did not find the motion across a mouse pad to be smooth. In fact I like almost nothing about this mouse. My retina MacBookPro is awesome in almost every way. And still no right-click? This mouse is awful. Apple, when will you create a good mouse again?

    Simply perfect for simple functions

    • Written by from Chicago

    I've used this mouse for almost 4 months after years of using wired Apple mouse(es)/mice.

    It works perfectly for me. Battery life is great, bluetooth connectivity is great and I particularly love the scrolling function.

    Granted, I am only using this for relatively basic functions - web-browsing, emails, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, minor iMovie editing and random gaming.

    After reading the multitude of negative reviews, and having 20+ years of experience using many different mouse types, I can only suggest that perhaps this is a mouse that requires a gentle touch.
    It does not appear to be designed to be heavily grasped. Your hand/fingers should hover above for best functionality. This is contrary to other mouse devices that encourage the user to closely "hold" or "cover" the device in the palm of the hand. The Magic Mouse functions best with VERY light touch, almost a slight hovering.

    If you don't feel that making these physical adjustments are comfortable for you, don't buy this product. There's a multitude of other products available that will serve your needs.

    If you can adjust, go ahead and buy it. The design, interface and functionality are superb - as long as you are prepared to tweak your previously learned "heavy handed" approach.

    I love it! Good luck with your choices.

    To sensitive for the zooming feature. Cannot adjust or disconnect the zoom. (Yes I have tried everything). Happens on maps and other graphical screens. Going out and buying a new mouse.
