      Stupid AND great

The feel of the mouse, the functionality, the build quality are all class-leading... but who in the world thought that sticking the charging port on the base of the mouse was a good idea?! And not allowing the mouse to be used whilst being charged? Seriously?! WHY? What a stupid thing to do Apple. What does someone do when they're working and their mouse runs out? Am I expected to buy two of these things??? Aargh. Here's a solution, Apple... what if the mouse could become a wired mouse whilst charging? Stick the port in the front-end of the mouse and have it work whilst charging so I don't have to use my laptops trackpad for intricate design work.

      Worst design of an Apple product that I've encountered

      Let me begin by saying that the original Magic Mouse was and is my all-time favorite mouse, hands down. I love it, and would easily give it 5 stars. But the Let me begin by saying that the original Magic Mouse was and is my all-time favorite mouse, hands down. I love it, and would easily give it 5 stars. But then they "upgraded" it to the Magic Mouse 2. For all the ingenious designs that Apple has come up with, how did they ever manage to think up the idea of putting the recharging port on the bottom of the mouse, which makes it completely useless while recharging! All the designers would have needed to do is look at a corded mouse: put the recharging port on the front... and voila! A rechargeable cordless mouse that can temporarily function as a corded mouse while its being recharged! Seriously Apple, how did no one see this problem? I am very disappointed in you guys on this one. I'm sure Steve is too.

      Magic Mouse 2 vs Magic Mouse 1

      WeI have two iMac's and the newer one has MM2. I find it smoother and even more comfortable to use than the MM1, and the built in battery lasts longer than the WeI have two iMac's and the newer one has MM2. I find it smoother and even more comfortable to use than the MM1, and the built in battery lasts longer than the rechargeable batteries I use in MM1. The main thing for me though is that the MM2 retains a solid bluetooth connection to whichever machine I am using on, whereas the MM1 has always been prone to disconnecting or taking a while to connect. The fact that you cannot use the mouse while it is charging did worry me slightly at first, but, as I assume the the battery does not suffer from reduced capacity due to 'memory' problems, one can just keep an eye on it and recharge it well before it gets too low for a days use. Perhaps put a monthly reminder in the Calendar.

      Some poor design choices.

      It still feels fine and works the way I've come to expect from the Magic Mouse, and if that's all you need from a mouse (as I do), then that part is great. T It still feels fine and works the way I've come to expect from the Magic Mouse, and if that's all you need from a mouse (as I do), then that part is great. The battery holds a long charge, which is nice, but today I found I needed to charge it and now parrot all the other people wondering why the charging port needed to be located on the underside, rendering it useless while charging. Maybe it's harmful to the battery to be plugged in all the time and they assumed some people would just leave it plugged in? I don't know; I'm not an engineer. But I am a user, and I'm bummed that it's now a paper weight until it's ready to go again. To that point, I know that I can view the charge percentage by going to system preferences, but to not have any kind of indication at all on the mouse itself whether or not it is charging or it's finished is also a strange absence. I know Apple recognizes the value of a charge indicator because it used to be on their products, and is still on their AA Battery Charger. Hopefully Apple's trend of crippling user experience for the sake of aesthetics will end soon.

      Worst Design by the placement of lightening port

      I don't think this is an apple design, they have done this with out even thinking for a moment. seriously port at the bottom of a mouse ? Cheaply executed, I don't think this is an apple design, they have done this with out even thinking for a moment. seriously port at the bottom of a mouse ? Cheaply executed, I am ashamed to say I am an apple fan.

      Sorry I cannot give it zero. I bought this mouse on 21/11/16 and try to use it for the first time on 11/02/17. I tried for hours to charge the lithium-ion batte Sorry I cannot give it zero. I bought this mouse on 21/11/16 and try to use it for the first time on 11/02/17. I tried for hours to charge the lithium-ion battery in vain. From my experience the Li-Ion batteries technology is not reliable, in many cases it has a sharp cutoff and very short life. Furthermore the charging cable supplied to charge the mouse does not fit the MacBook Pro that I bought with the mouse, - different connectors. The laptop has thunderbolt 3 (USB C) connectors only and the cable provided has USB A connector.
