    Bad design. Embarrassment of an Apple product.

    Charging port is on the bottom of the mouse. Makes it impossible to use while charging. That alone is enough to give a 1 star review. Apple botched this one.

    Great Mouse Upgrade

    The ONLY disappointment is that I can't use it with OS 10.10 - which is an issue because my IT department has not upgraded us to 10.11 yet.
    Otherwise, this mouse is still a great design that moves naturally across my desk.
    I'm surprised by the number of reviews that complain about the charging port being on the bottom, thus preventing them from using the mouse while charging. Can anyone post a link to a rechargeable mouse that CAN be used while charging? I can't recall ever having seen such a device. The complainers should just shut the heck up and return the mouse if they hate it so much, but I'm keeping mine!

    Apple's worst designed item!

    Cant charge the item when being used - thoughtless. And the charging point is on the underside of the mouse - huh. Would given the item zero stars, but it's not possible to select a whopping 0.

    Decent mouse but overpriced

    The mouse itself is decent, although not as sensitive as I'd like on full setting. The charging bit at the bottom is pretty silly but I'm just glad the mouse doesn't need to be charged as much and that it also doesn't take too long for it to charge. No idea how Apple let that one slip through but...

    If they bumped up the sensitivity it would be a fantastic mouse.

    Piece of garbage

    Works well once one upgrades to El Capitan - but then you have an excellent mouse trying to work an OS that is seriously flawed to the point of unusable. Now going to toss the mouse in the garbage from where it was birthed and downgrade to Yosemite and go back to the old Logitech mouse I was using.

    Great upgrade from previous MM

    Excellent product, don't bother reading bad reviews about de charging plug in the bottom. Charges fast, lasts forever, very nice upgrade from previous model. LO RECOMIENDO

    Apple failed design on a rushed product

    How in the blue heaven would the bright engineers at Apple decided to put the charger under the mouse? so if you forget to charge your mouse regardless you are at work or home... you have to stop your productivity and wait for the darn thing to charge.

    Apple as usual is failing to impress its users by going backwards in the design department. If good old Steve would be there , He will NEVER accept this kind of childish games Apple is pulling lately.

    Do not buy this stupid little mouse, save your money and buy the previous version of this mouse or get a logitech mouse.

    Not User-Friendly; Ergonomic Nightmare

    I've used this mouse for two months now. At first, I thought I disliked it, but wanted to give it a chance. Now I can confidently say that I really, REALLY dislike it. I only gave it two stars because it works, or it would have gotten one star.

    It is a nightmare ergonomically. There are two issues. Because of the square design, the base of the thumb pushes the bottom of the mouse to the right, thus aligning the index finger with the right click area, instead of the left. This leads to the second issue. Because there is no button in the top middle, no ridge, no anything, the finger does not know instinctively when it had gone over that center line to the right click.

    I'm off to buy a non-Apple mouse!

    I love it!

    I think I have tried all of the wireless mice Apple has produced over the years. We are still using the original battery-powered Magic Mouse. It's a significant improvement over its predecessors. The Magic Mouse 2 is an improvement over that. Detractors love to malign the placement of the charging port because you can't use the mouse while it's charging. Those people apparently haven't used the mouse long enough to know it's really not a factor. I use this mouse nearly every day for at least an hour or more, and in the three months I have had it, I have charged it once. It was nearly fully charged out of the box, and it was just a few weeks ago that I needed to charge it again. You get plenty of notice before it dies. If you're worried about running it down while you're working, plug it in and take a 10-minute break. It will charge enough during that time to give you several more hours. When you're finished, plug it in for a few hours and it will be ready to go again for a couple more months.

    Design flaw!

    I really don't like the fact that I can't use the mouse while it's recharging. And it's too sensitive. Unless it's the problems with my computer that are causing that problem, too!

    Cannot click left and right simultaneously; sad for gamers.

    I'm not going to repeat any of the content of reviews here... I simply need to add that this mouse is not suitable for any games (or applications) that require you to be able to click the left and right buttons simultaneously (e.g. hold down the right button and then click the left). This rules out most First-Person games, of which there are now plenty for the Mac.

    How can you not like this mouse?!

    I absolutely love this mouse. It runs smooth without a mouse pad under in, and the touch features on this are really cool! I would recommend this to anyone and I'm really not sure why this is getting such bad reviews!

    Epic product design fail

    I have no idea how this product got approved by the Apple team. The charging port is on the bottom of the mouse which disables it's use when charging. Do NOT buy this item, buy a older used apple mouse or a third party one. £65 for an item with a major design flaw is insulting.

    Don't bother!

    Utterly disappointed with my overpriced MM2. Used it for an hour, and now it's going on craigslist... except I'll feel guilty selling it! (as you should apple)
    No middle click.
    Terribly unergonomic.
    Plug input in ridiculous place.

    DO NOT BUY! Just go get a $10 Logitech

    Fantastic

    I really don't get some of the reviews here. This mouse is fantastic, it works very well, very precise and I really love the design. The only downsize is the charging port location that doesn't let you charge and use at the same time, but this is really not that relevant as the battery life is really amazing!
    Great work!

    Mouse Trap

    As a Mac user for 30+ years, this essential little object is a complete disappointment. Charging design aside, it simply does not work with Yosemite. A waste of money.

    Better than the first edition but why is the charging point on the bottom??

    Why oh why apple, when you do so much right do you do this so wrong. I am currently unable to use photoshop whilst I wait for my mouse to charge as the port is on the bottom making it currently useless. Why not put it at the back?

    The Magic Mouse 2 is just dandy. Haters, go get that Logitech then. Geez.

    Seriously people, I have no idea what these people are going on about in here.
    Especially those that had or still have and use the MM1. As The MM2 is LITERALLY the SAME mouse, minus the weight (the MM2 is Lighter, no batteries) Or The Charging port. As far as design or ergonomics are concerned, there is no difference. The touch interface is still exactly the same as well.

    For crying out loud people, Get A GRIP! Seriously. I would like all the haters going on and on about the location of the charging port to take a good look at this mouse and tell us all where on IT, yes this actual mouse, you think Apple should have put the port~ and let us all know. After looking at the mouse myself, I see no where else for it to logically go.

    It actually charges enough for a whole work day in a couple minutes, Apple knew full well that you would not be able to charge and use the mouse at the same time so it was made to charge fast enough that it would be a non issue.
    If you forgot to charge it, and it got low enough that it turned off you can charge it back up to nearly 100% during your lunch break,
    10 minutes will get you well over half charged, or even if you have something crazy important you are working on and can only spare the time it takes for you to get to bathroom and back? That will certainly be enough time to charge the mouse for the rest of the work day, and likely enough to get you all the way til Friday. at which time you can plug it in, and come back to a freshly charged mouse on Monday that you can use for 2 more months without remembering to charge it again until it dies.

    As for those posting negative reviews based solely on the location of the charging port? sell your MM2 and get a MM1. It's the same mouse, but uses batteries.
    Your welcome.

    Looks great but!

    What are Apple thinking with the new design where you can't charge the mouse and use it at the same time?!

    My original Magic Mouse has 2x regular batteries and is still running on the same set after some 2+ years!

    Can I get my money back? Of course not!
