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.
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.
Powered by a precision optical sensor, the Apple Mouse provides responsive and accurate cursor movement on almost any type of surface — no mouse pad required.

After researching why it did this i found that the bar collects f after about 2 months on my mighty mouse the scroll bar stop working, then it would only go up. After researching why it did this i found that the bar collects finger grease. Causing the sensor to not recognize the ball rotating. HERE'S THE FIX: get a piece of printer paper, and place the mouse upside down, with the ball touching the paper. Then rub the mouse ball against the paper in all directions. You should see your black finger grease on the paper. Repeat about every 2 months

There is a fix for the broken scroll ball, don't lose hope!
For those of you complaining about the scroll ball and getting dirt trapped beneath it, don't worry. You can fairly easily open (just be careful not to yank ope For those of you complaining about the scroll ball and getting dirt trapped beneath it, don't worry. You can fairly easily open (just be careful not to yank open the mouse, there are two cables connecting the top to the bottom) up the mouse and once it is opened its a piece of cake to get every little bit of dirt off. When you are inside you will see a small plastic square around the ball. Take this off and clean EVERYTHING, this includes removing the small black wheels that surround the ball (make sure not to lose them!). Carefully put everything back together and there you go, a resurrected mighty mouse. This works MUCH better than just cleaning the mouse off because you are getting rid of the grime that is trapped around the ball and below it. Hope this helps

Press I've worked with the mighty mouse for sometime, and one of my cohorts taught me a neat trick. Place an ordinary piece of paper on a hard, flat surface. Press the ball against the paper and roll it around. It seems abusive at first, but all of the gross little chunks of dirt and such spew out on the paper. Thus making your mouse mighty once again.

Ok, wireless would be better

The only This mouse is really cool- it's got lots of buttons which you can set up to do a lot of different things. The scroll wheel lets you scroll 360 degrees. The only thing that gets really annoying is the cord. It might not be as "in the way" if I were using a desktop computer, but when you're using it with a Macbook, it gets in the way. The other thing is that it's hard to carry the mouse around with the cord sticking out. (Yes, you can wrap it around, but that becomes tedious after a couple times.) Overall, it's a great mouse, but it would be better if it was wireless. If I had a choice, I would spend the extra money and buy the wireless and multi-touch Magic Mouse 2.

Sure, you pay a little more than you want to, but in return you get an Apple product with great design and quality, right? ...mweh... not so sure anymore these Sure, you pay a little more than you want to, but in return you get an Apple product with great design and quality, right? ...mweh... not so sure anymore these days. This mouse is another example. The most basic things a mouse should do is move a cursor around, respond to clicks, and scroll properly. Amazingly, in ALL these respects it fails to deliver. 1. Tracking is slow and imprecise - I had to ramp it up beyond what system prefernces would allow me, through a terminal command. Sometimes it tracks faster, sometimes slower... I have to admit that I don't use a mousepad, but with my desk surface tracking has never been a problem for any other mouse except for this one. 2. Right clicks... work 85% of the time. Just about any other mouse works fine with my comp, but the moment I plug this one in the right clicks start failing. 3. Scrolling feels jerky and imprecise. Also this works much smoother with my much cheaper Logitech mouse attached. How they manage to mess up in all these distinct but crucial aspects that make a mouse a MOUSE is beyond me. I have never paid more for a mouse. I have never received less from a mouse. These are two separate facts of which the combination kind of blows my mind. Big thumbs down, apple...

Very nice to use; a hassle to clean
Overall this mouse is quite useful. The 360 degree scroll wheel works like a charm. The only hassle is cleaning the scroll ball. This is what worked for me : Overall this mouse is quite useful.

Rubbing the ball on a wet cloth 3. Cleaning the ball with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol Repeat every month.

With the options to choose how to use the different sides of the mouse, I made the right side of the mouse the secondary button. After that setting, to right click you click on the top right hand side of the mouse and it becomes the right click.
