    Apple Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Middle West Pubnico

    The old Apple bluetooth mouse was terrible. Couldn't pick it up and hold it in any way that was comfortable. Just really crapy design. I called Apple with discuss just to ask the tech people what they were thinking.
    The new bluetooth magic mouse is easier to grasp but still a waste of time to even consider. Still doesn't fit the common hand and the screen wobbles and jumps around as soon as I put my fingers anywhere near the mouse. Also I can't do Cad work with it because it has no wheel to use as a centre button to pan the drawing. Thank God I still have my Logitec. Apple needs another selection in the pricing of new Macs where you can check of that you don't want to buy an Apple mouse. Should be able to deduct at least $2.00 from the invoice.

    Would love it but ...

    • Written by from SAINT LOUIS

    ... it will not stay connected to my computer. I have the newest Macbook and all the new software with this new mouse so it should all work great, right? Well I've replaced the batteries 3 times in the last 2 weeks and it still loses connectivity for no reason. If I bump it against the desk at all it loses it. If I'm moving too quickly from page to page it loses it. Every time that "Connection Lost" pops up on my screen it infuriates me. I love the functionality of it and find it very useful for my daily work, but I'm not putting up with it anymore. I just ordered a Logitech trackball.

    NOT! a good choice...

    • Written by from Glasgow

    This seemed to be a magnificent choice when I was looking for a smooth mouse for my new Macbook pro, but it turns out to be a really annoying piece of equipment.

    Ok, the design is really beautiful, and it feels great in your hand BUT it's super heavy, hard to move around and above all SLOOOOOOOW. It's is super slow, I had to change the settings in terminal to be able to make ir quicker.

    So, I ended up using my sister's Acer Mouse from her Acer netbook :S It's small and quick...

    Magic mouse

    • Written by from LAS VEGAS

    First off if you use cheap batteries you will burn through them every week and that is why I use more expensive batteries and they last for about 4 months or longer and I use my computer a lot and the mouse never fails and it is and your good to go because this is a excellent mouse and I love it completely and i had the Mighty Mouse before this one and it was great too . Apple never ceases to amaze me me with their innovative products.

    Magic Mouse Battery Life Disappeared overnight like MAGIC

    • Written by from Goodna

    I'm pretty happy with the Apple Magic Mouse (all the function) swiping which is cool to have. But for something that cost $75AUD retail would it be good to have longer battery life? Don't you think? Battery Life Disappeared just like the name MAGIC.

    Wow, really bad!

    • Written by from Aurora

    The mouse loses it's connection constantly and sometimes it seems to just freeze up and you can't get it to move and you have to switch it off then on. If you are in the middle of a game or other program you just lose everything. Nice idea but very flawed!

    Mine died very young :-(

    • Written by from Napanee

    This mouse was wonderful while it worked. It came with the iMac 27" when I converted to that from my PC, in August 2011, but by mid September it was *very* frequently losing connection with the iMac. I changed batteries several times to see if that might solve the problem, to no avail. Finally I plugged in an old USB MS IntelliMouse and have been working fine ever since.

    This mouse is great, the software will catch up, patience...

    • Written by from Saint Petersburg

    This mouse is a revelation. The mouse tracks smoothly, is very precise, the multi-touch features that it currently supports work intuitively. For those complaining about ergonomics, get an ergonomic mousepad, it works great with them. For those grousing about what it doesn't do, remember it's software controlled, and states it requires 10.6.2... Perhaps Apple released some core functionality with an update on the new iMacs while the real OS support is being fine tuned..? Perhaps..? (Middle-Click, Rotate == Patch)

    Battery Life

    • Written by from Winthrop

    Love this mouse, but am replacing batteries constantly. Would be the perfect mouse if they would fix the battery life problem.

    Magic Mouse - OUCH!

    • Written by from Morgan Hill

    I love Apple products and I love what this mouse can do. Unfortunately it has some major problems. The sensitivity is such that it can scroll or zoom without provocation, but more importantly, it seriously lacks in the ergonomics department. I also find the mouse to have tracking problems, often dropping whatever you are trying to move. I've learned to get somewhat better at this with a lighter touch, but since when does one need to "learn" how to move a mouse? I've worked on computers for well over 20 years, Macs only, and in all that time I have never encountered discomfort. I'm now seeing an orthopedic doctor, and the pain in my wrist is awful. Each morning and each day is an exercise in pain. I hope the track pad works better. Two stars for what it does Apple, but please address how it does it.

    :D Nice

    I love this mouse, it feels natural in my hand. Install was easy, and I LOVE the scrolling feature. I do wish it had controls for expose.

    Great Mouse

    • Written by from Florence

    I absolutely love this mouse. It does everything I ask and more! Comes with batteries and the sink process was easy as cake. I would recommend this mouse to anyone who is wanting a high end well produced product. If you are looking for a mouse to compliment your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air, then look no further. I would buy this mouse again and again.

    PAINFUL contemplating class action suit for carpal tunnel it's that bad

    • Written by from Peoria

    Mouse seems great but then you use it.... if you are a casual user then great. If you are using this mouse for any kind of work for extended periods of time, i.e. greater then 5 min literally, you will be in for a shock. HAND AND WRIST PAIN TO DIE FOR! My hand and wrist will hurt for hours after use due to the extremely poor ergonomics. sleek design, cools gestures and function do NOT make up for the terrible terrible design. If your hands aren't super small DONT GET THIS MOUSE!

    Coolest mouse ever

    • Written by from Knoxville

    Magic mouse is really a magic!
    Design is fantastic and features are versatile. In most times, I do not need keyboard because I can control my mac book with many kinds of gestures. If you install magic prefs, which is for free, you can add more gestures such as tip the apple logo or swipe four fingers. You can also assign short cuts in Magicprefs. So I play and stop itunes tipping apple logo on my magic mouse. Isn't it cool?

    Also it is robust. A couple of logitech mice I have used could not last more than eight months; however, magic mouse has no problem so far for more than one year.

    Did not Last!

    • Written by from Newfane

    I loved the new Magic Mouse, and it seemed much better than the Mighty Mouse. problem is, just recently when changing the batteries the left click does not work anymore. The scroll and the right click work, but now left click, unless I keep clicking it. Now I am back using my Mighty Mouse and use the Magic Mouse to scroll. The thing is, it is after the one year warranty, which stinks since I would not have it that long. I would have given 5 stars if it still worked properly, but it would seem these mouses do not last that long. :(

    A good companion for the usual user

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    It took me a couple days to get the gestures consistent (mostly the two finger swipe between spaces). Since then it has served me very well. It functions with good responsiveness on my desk even without a mousepad.

    It does eat batteries like crazy. I had to use my little travel USB mouse when I ran out of batteries unexpectedly. But going without the magic mouse made me appreciate how much I relied on its functions. So I solved the battery problem by getting some rechargeable batteries from Target.

    It doesn't fit your hand perfectly but I suspect that's only an issue for heavy users (e.g., programmers, gamers). I've experienced no pain.

    Worst mouse ever

    • Written by from FREEPORT

    I hate this mouse almost as much as the stupid trackpad. One of the worst interfaces in computer history.
    Terrible battery life. Loses connection constantly even with new batteries.
    After twenty years of computer mac useage, i feel the new direction apple is going is just plain terrible.

    Profile is too low

    • Written by from WYNDMOOR

    Nice mouse but I found the profile too low, too flat. As a graphic artist I use my mouse 99% of the day, after 2 hours it was so uncomfortable I had to switch back to my Logitech.

    Great mouse but tracking is slow

    • Written by from Stevenson Ranch

    I have been using the Magic Mouse for a little while now and it is a great mouse. I love the scroll ability and it has a great feel. My only criticism is the tracking speed is slow. The tracking speed is how far/fast it moves on the screen when you move the mouse. I have tracking set as high as possible, and I still have to frequently pick up the mouse and move it over to complete a move to the far side of the screen.

    I also am running Windows 7 in VMWare Fusion, and the mouse works great. There is no side to side scrolling, but I am used to that even with my Logitech mouse. Up and down scrolling works great.

    If is working is good, but....

    • Written by from Winnipeg

    whatever I'm trying to do just get disconnected randomly.
    Works for hours, and suddenly is like dead (Disconnected - message on the screen) again is connected, again disconnected... you got it...
    It is frustrating and should be a recall from Apple - looks like thousands are dealing with same issues.
    Not recommended to buy!
