Magic Mouse 2 — Silver

  • Overview

    Magic Mouse 2 is completely rechargeable, so you won’t need to use traditional batteries. It’s lighter; has fewer moving parts thanks to its built-in battery and continuous bottom shell; and has an optimised foot design. All of this helps Magic Mouse 2 track more easily and move with less resistance across your desk. And the Multi-Touch surface allows you to perform simple gestures such as swiping between web pages and scrolling through documents. Magic Mouse 2 is ready to go straight out of the box, and pairs automatically with your Mac.

      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.

      Who are these people?

      Is someone paying irrational, cantankerous antagonists to write one-star reviews? Anything they don't love is automatically "the worst thing ever!" All of these Is someone paying irrational, cantankerous antagonists to write one-star reviews? Anything they don't love is automatically "the worst thing ever!" All of these extremely low reviews are incredible... as in "not even remotely credible." This mouse looks and feels like the last one - only a little lighter. Ergonomics, weight, appearance, functionality... all great things, and all much better than your average third-party product. The mouse plugs in to charge... and this is somehow horrible? Upside-down is a bit weird and you don't use it while it is charging. How does that make this a one-star product? Don't you ever sleep? Can't you remember to plug your mouse in overnight once a month? This is way better than having to change the batteries every two weeks. Do you gripe about your phone because you have to put it down once in a while to charge it? So it doesn't work with some of the older system software? Well in most cases, neither should you. How does that make this product abysmal? Your wrist hurts? That is not the mouse's fault. Operator error does not make a product atrocious any more than a drunk driver makes a a particular brand of car a hazard to drive. This mouse is a great product. An improvement over the already-good last version. Would I prefer a third party mouse over this one? No thanks. I'll give my five stars right here without apology.

      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.

      Caution. Apple, I suggest you bring out a new mouse.

      The Magic Mouse - Apple's supposed game-changing mouse. Only, its not. First off, the ergonomics of the mouse are awful, the human hand is not one perfect curve The Magic Mouse - Apple's supposed game-changing mouse. Only, its not. First off, the ergonomics of the mouse are awful, the human hand is not one perfect curve, using this thing with no support under your palm is super tiring after a short period of time, and you cant 'lay' your palm on this thing, because then none of the gestures work, and you cant click. The second awful thing, are the gestures. Apple, your trackpads are amazing, I adore the new magic trackpad 2, and macOS is absolutely phenomenal with all the trackpad gestures, but your mouse doesn't seem to support any of them. Sure we have things like double tap with two fingers for Mission Control or Exposé, but thats not nearly as intuitive as swiping up. On the trackpads we've got the scrunching gestures that can launch Launchpad, or show our desktops. On the mouse? none of those 'shortcuts' are present. If theres no space for gestures on this thing, give us buttons on the side! or give us sliding gestures we could do on the body of the mouse on either side (Kind of like the 'squeeze' buttons on the old, and much better, Mighty Mouse) The last thing i want to talk about is the 20$ price increase when you want the mouse in a different colour. I think its absolutely ridiculous that you have to pay an extra 20$ to get another colour just because you guys think "more people will want the black one, so lets jack up the price by 20$" Apple doesn't do this. Dell and HP do this. You don't charge extra for a space grey finish on a MacBook or on an iPhone so why the price increase on the mouse and keyboard? Please fix your mouse, I cant stand having to connect an adapter to my MacBook pro just so i can use your previous gen. USB Mighty Mouse.

      Unusable while charging?!?

      What kind of idiotic design is it to put the charging port on the bottom of the mouse?? It's unusable while charging. That's so terrible.
