    Innovative Scroll Ball and button

    Perfectly positioned to roll smoothly under just one finger, the Apple Mouse's Scroll Ball offers full 360-degree scrolling capability — up/down, left/right and diagonally. You can scroll long web pages, pan full-size images, maneuver around large spreadsheets, control a video timeline and more. And you can even click the Scroll Ball to access your favorite Mac OS X features such as Dashboard, Spotlight or Exposé.

    Touch-sensitive top shell

    It looks and feels like a sleek one-button mouse, but the Apple Mouse's smooth top shell hides a powerful secret: touch-sensitive technology under the shell detects which part of the mouse you're clicking, so you can both left-click and right-click. And if you prefer the simplicity of a classic one-button mouse, the Apple Mouse is up to the task. Just use the Mac OS X system preference pane to configure it how you want.

    Force-sensing side buttons

    When you give the Apple Mouse a squeeze, force-sensing side buttons can be configured to activate Mac OS X features such as Dashboard, Exposé or a whole host of other customizable features.

    Customizable

    If you have Mac OS X, the Apple Mouse can give you fingertip access to the special features you love. Simply use the system preference panel to configure the Apple Mouse in the way that makes you most powerful. Control the Scroll Ball's tracking and click functions, as well as the right, left and side click functions. And you even can set up different mouse profiles for every user account on your Mac.

      READ THIS if scrollwheel not working

      OK, granted, there is a flaw in the design of this mouse, but I bet 90% of mice problems can be solved like this: 1. unplug the mouse from the keyboard 2. t OK, granted, there is a flaw in the design of this mouse, but I bet 90% of mice problems can be solved like this: 1. unplug the mouse from the keyboard 2. turn it upside down 3. roll the scrollwheel in all directions on a blank (clean) piece of paper, in all directions, for 60 seconds 4. re-attach bingo! works every time. this is a good mouse in both OS X and Windows, I have used it for gaming and is excellent for browsing large webpages or large documents, with its 360 degree scrollwheel. although at times i want to get away from the mouse/keyboard combo (it is 2008 now, after all), at least this Mighty Mouse lessens the pain somewhat.

It is a shame that after just over one year the scroll has stopped working as mentioned by others in this area. I pay up for Apple products because they work. This time I am not sure if I will buy an apple mouse again until this is revised and fixed. Real shame as the product worked well for one year.

      OK not mighty

It also loses position every few minutes, the pointer shooting off to a random extreme position, wasting time. All 3 of these mouses I have owned have these faults, so it is hardware/software not a faulty unit. I -do- like it whilst it is working though....

      Does not work as advertised

      This mouse is more than two times as expensive as a simple Logitech or no-name mouse. Well, it better do what it says on the box: "works on nearly every surfac This mouse is more than two times as expensive as a simple Logitech or no-name mouse. Well, it better do what it says on the box: "works on nearly every surface"... Apple, have you never tried to use it on a wodden, white Ikea table ? Come on! I just bought this mouse because it's white and suits my Apple keyboard, but as it is not on par at tracking compared to any cheap PC mouse I've ever used on the same table before, I will return it tomorrow. By the way, I only have it because I replaced a Magic Mouse 2 that I returned today. That one tracked, at least.... Guys, just get out of the mouse business and focus on your core competences....

Works about 70% of the time. * Cord is too short. * Scroll ball is sometimes way too sensitive and/or doesn't even work at all. It's a neat concept, but be warned - not all features work as they should. Buy at your own risk.

      £50 for a mouse that wont move properly
