    I've owned two of the previous wireless mice made by Apple. They were great until they lost the ability to scroll. This new one is amazing! I have confidents that Apple has fixed those issues with the old and made this new one even better. I don't know how they do it, but they've it well.

    Works Great, but HEAVY.

    • Written by from Calgary

    The mouse works great for mousing duties. However, if you are a graphic designer, then you'll need a mouse that it more accurate and sensitive. The features are neato, and after using this mouse for only a couple of hours, I was completely used to it. It also works on ANY surface. The only really negative thing is that it is very heavy. Ironically, the weight of the mouse with no batteries is just about the perfect weight. I read somewhere that Li-ion batteries may be lighter, but I think that they would have to be a lot lighter for you to work with it for a long period of time (ie. 3 hours +) and not get a tired wrist/hand. Good price and functionality for a bluetooth mouse though.

    Have to change batteries every 3 weeks

    • Written by from New York

    The mouse itself has incredible design and best scrolling I've ever used on a mouse. Even compared to a Mighty Mouse, which scroll ball has to be cleaned weekly. The cleaning procedure of this one is done by my jeans. I give it 4 stars because of extensive battery usage (have to change batteries every 3 weeks, iMac is used 8-12 hours a day) and sharp edges, which brings some discomfort on a long day use, especially I feel it when doing repetitive tasks. Looking forward for Apple to fix battery issue. Meanwhile I've ordered a pack of Eneloop rechargeables.

    Insanely MAGIC

    • Written by from fishers

    Who ever knew that the normal scroll-wheel mouse would ever change. The way that you just push the wheel up or down, but now the Magic mouse just is awesome.

    The Good- This is the best mouse that can fit in the palm of your hand. It is still a point and click mouse, but the experience while scrolling and maneuvering images is just beautifully articulated on you Mac's screen.

    The Bad- Does not work with any of the windows family computers. Why? I do not know but i do know, That they say it's bluetooth but when i turned my laptops bluetooth on it didn't read or even find the mouse so...

    Finally it is the best feeling mouse ever. The only reason i put a 4 is that it doesn't work on a windows based machine.

    It's A Good Product

    • Written by from Brampton

    Been using the mouse for 2 weeks with my Mac Mini. Battery life is at 67%, (keyboard is still at 100%).

    Mind you, I've been using a free third-party app to enhance my "Magic" experience, which drained the battery by 23% within a week, (the trade-off being to do tap-clicks, middle-button clicking, multi-finger tapping/clicking/swiping, touchpad capabilities, and even finger pinching, plus additional tracking & scrolling speed, makes for a really quiet experience).

    Without the 3rd-party app, the battery life went down by only 10% after a week, but had to put up with noticeably loud clicking and limited controls, (vertical/horizontal touch-scrolling and two finger swipe navigation).

    The mouse is smooth to the touch and ergonomic, (basically, my whole forearm is on the desk surface and the mouse fits into the contour of my hand).

    I find that the keyboard handles the Bluetooth connection better, even though the mouse is closer to the Mac Mini, (I turned both devices off at the same and separate times, and there's always a delayed response to acknowledging the mouse).

    The mouse seems fragile to minor drops, (i.e. accidental drops while repositioning on the mousepad can sometimes make the mouse temporary lose its connection, but it reconnects within a second).

    It's an okay mouse on its own, but with MagicPrefs, it's great, (though the entire surface is touch-sensitive, so I've had a few accidental clicks/things happen, but that's only because I'm using the 3rd-party app).

    Overall, it's a beautiful device and goes really well with the rest of your Apple products. :D

    Very Cool

    • Written by from Gainesville

    The early reviews knocked the Magic Mouse, but I have to say I love it. It's not perfect, in fact you'll need to download the free application MagicPrefs to take full advantage of all the things it can do (early frustrations with lack a of a native middle click nearly made me send it back until I found MagicPrefs). Even with the additional support MagicPrefs adds, many commands (multitouch)are still are insanely difficult to implement. So with all the negatives why do I still give this 4 out of 5 stars? Its the coolest input device since the touch pad, and the first new idea to come to the mouse in over a decade. Lastly, but not least, its fun to use.

    This mouse works excellent and was simple to use with my MacBook Pro. The touch and drag your finger in any direction scrolling works exceptionally. I would suggest that this mouse is bought for basic computing and web browsing needs. The "multi-touch" functions work differently than that of the MacBook track pads, and there is no support of 3 or 4 finger gestures and there is no option for touching the surface to input a click instead of pressing the click button down.

    This is likely an unsuitable mouse for gaming, because you cannot input left and right clicks simultaneously, there is no middle click or other buttons, and the scrolling has no tactile feedback.

    In conclusion, I got this mouse for real basic use when my MacBook is connected to my TV as a primary display and it excels for that purpose. The way this mouse scrolls is worth the price of admission, so to speak. I still prefer to use the track pad on my MacBook when its not connected to my TV because it has a lot more functionality available.

    Magic Mouse is Magical, but at times a nuisance.

    • Written by from Louisville

    Nearly three months now I have been using this mouse. I am very pleased with the overall function and feel of the mouse. The accuracy as expected is precise. The function of the multi-touch surface is stunning and not easily explained. I recommend actually experiencing it yourself. I am very pleased with the mouse and would highly recommend it to others.

    While the mouse is truly a great addition and useful tool, there are a few issues. Shortly after using the mouse I found my 24 inch iMac began to act oddly. My usual routine is to place the mac in sleep mode and turn the mouse off. This actually caused minor headaches, where the mac would not wake from sleep. This was resolved by keeping a wired mouse connected at all times. The other nuisance I have with this mouse is the "hit and miss" bluetooth connection. About 20% of the time I have to take extra steps to have the mouse connect to the iMac when waking from sleep. Even with these minor issues I still am very pleased with the mouse and it's features.

    TAP on the mouse instead of clicking would be AMAZING!!

    • Written by from Tucson

    Apple, why can't you just make the CLICK functionality touch capable same as the macbook laptops touchpad, there is an option to use a TAP or click to actually use the click. I would give the mouse 100% if the clicking would be TAP and not clicking and using force on the mouse.

    Amazing Bluetooth Mouse

    • Written by from Hillsboro

    The Apple Magic Mouse is a great Bluetooth Mouse, better than any other peripheral I have ever owned for any computer. It makes navigation easy on webpages, the iTunes Store, iCal and even in Finder, and the scroll feature makes it just that much cooler. However, it is only four-stars in my review due to the fact that the side buttons that are on the Mighty Mouse were very useful and are missing on this mouse. But aside from that, all it needs is updated software with more touch gestures available. This is a great buy and I recommend it to any user with a Bluetooth-enabled Macintosh.

    Battery Drainer

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I like the mouse and the swipe feature. Only negative thing I really have about it is that it drains batteries really fast. So if you are not used to having to off your mouse, you'll have to invest in rechargeable batteries.

    Buy if needed now otherwise wait for second generation

    • Written by from Beverly Hills

    I am a new mac user and received this mouse with my recent 27" iMac purchase on 1/2010. At 1st I was apprehensive to it's functionality, but that soon dissipated after I installed Magic Prefs (must have for this mouse). The way it scrolls and can switch windows is incredibly intuitive and natural. However, there are 3 issues Apple needs to resolve before its next generation offering.

    First, left-click is hard to find. Half of the times I have to force my index finger to the top left of the mouse. For multi-tab internet users, like myself, this is a problem because the index finger is naturally positioned in the center of the mouse for screen scrolling or moving between tabs. When it fails, the result is either the closing or opening of a browser tab.

    The second issue with the mouse is the three or four tap/click gestures are nearly impossible to execute. I'm uncertain if this is native to the mouse or to Magic Prefs but since scrolling without the auxiliary app is at a snail's pace, I'll chalk it up to the mouse. The good news is that I haven't found any practical use for the 3-4 tap/click/swipe mechanism.

    The final problem with the mouse is that it is, without a doubt, the most energy consuming mouse I've ever owned. I literally change batteries every 7-10 days! As others' have suggested, I would hope...no, I expect, that Apple will come up with a built in rechargeable battery that can be plugged into the computer or an outlet.

    In summation, this is a very good mouse and I recommend you buy it if you need a mouse right now. But, if you're not in need of a mouse NOW, I suggest waiting for the second generation product when all these issues are resolved.

    Great for web surfing

    • Written by from hong kong

    Super cool for web surfing. The scroll, forward & backward action is fantastic. Feel bad for changing back to traditional mouse when using Windows.

    But the click button is harder to use than a traditional 2-button mouse.

    Great for graphic design once you learn how to properly use it.

    • Written by from Pearland

    There are some reviews that say that this mouse is bad for graphic designers, but I would have to disagree. I was first put out by it because of all the graphic designer reviews putting it down, but I got the new Magic Mouse as a present so I decided to test it out.

    Like any new device, it's all about learning how to control it. The touch sensitive scroll wheel is super sensitive, and I definitely have sent artwork flying around my computer screen because I didn't understand how it worked at first. Now I am completely in love with it. The scrolling with momentum (like flicking on an iphone or ipod touch) is actually really useful when scrolling through thousands of lines of code or looking around in a huge document.

    The only thing preventing me from giving it 5 stars is the battery life. I use it all day every day, and I am finding that the battery usually lasts about a month. But one should just get rechargeable batteries, and the problem is solved!

    I was a naysayer at first, but I've grown to really like using the this product. This graphic designer approves of this product.
