    Form over function

    Well, this mouse looks fantastic, but I find it really slows me down whilst working. Ergonomically I find it comfortable, but unresponsive and not really suited to the human hand. There's also the problem of the charging port being placed under the mouse rendering it unusable when charging. I've been using it for 4 months and thought I'd be used to it by now, but alas.

    Would be five stars...

    ...except that you cannot plug in while using.

    As other elements of this mouse are truly wonderful. It has long battery life (weeks of heavy use), very functional, good looking. I just wish I could continue to use it when plugged into USB to charge. The magic keyboard does.

    Lack of advice

    Bought this at the Apple store in Los Gatos, CA. Wasn't advised that I had to be running Mac OS 10.11; which I am not (so I can continue to run all of my Adobe CS 6 sotfware which stops at OS 10.5). So now I am still stuck w/o a Mouse, and I have to waste an hour taking this back.

    Annoying that the sales people aren't alerted to advise people of this point.

    Also annoyed that the charging slot is underneath, presumably to emphasize that it is wireless?

    Moronic.

    Apple seriously needs a department to make sure that advances do not mess with fundamental Apple features, and that they they are better solutions, not just change for change sake. And also not moving towards Microsoft mentality, because of hiring Microsoft employees.

    An example: I also have an 30" Apple Cinema Screen Matte-finish monitor in my design, photography studio, which I sometimes use to review Netflix films. But suddenly I cant watch Netflix videos online in Mac Safari on that Monitor because of some coding switch, even though I can still watch Netflix online videos with no problem in Firefox, or Chrome. Pathetic. Apple is turning its back on its core creative base. Matte finish screens are better for design and photo work.... Apple is only selling to intertainment users, and even then gloss finish can be an issue with reflections.

    I'd give up on Apple, but there's no place else to go.

    An Office Managers Nightmare

    No point in echoing the same thing everyone else has said, of course they dropped the ball on this one. As an Office Manager who oversees IT for 30 people, I now encounter an almost daily struggle of someone whose mouse has ran out of battery and need to find something for them to use while it sits there, upside down, charging and rendered utterly useless.

    $80 + tax for innovation like this is just silliness on a whole new level.

    One Star Reviews Ridiculous

    The one star reviews on here are ridiculous. It is the same as the Apple Mouse 1 but lighter and with a chargeable battery. So what if the charging port is on the bottom. It's not like you are using the mouse 24/7. When you are done using it plug it in and it is ready next time you use it. Also, people are complaining it is too small for their hands. That is a personal issue. Do you really expect Apple to make a extra large mouse for those that have abnormally large hands. Trust me this is a top notch mouse that is highly customizable. If you have giant hands and need something to complain about go buy a trash Logitech that will last 3 months and break.

    Most annoying mouse I have ever owned.

    I swear this mouse has Tourette's. I enter a number in Illustrator (5.2, let's say) and it randomly increases it (to 18452 or more). I waste an INSANE amount of time hitting Command-Z every day, undoing this mouse's freaky behaviors. I even slowed down the tracking speed and that didn't help. I think it's just too sensitive. It's as though an errant cat hair or a gentle breeze causes it to flip out.

    And how a company that is synonymous with brilliant design could come up with a mouse that requires you to flip it over to charge it is beyond me. This thing should be able to charge while I'm using it! I do like not having an extra cord, but the psychotic performance negates that positive feature. After 3 months of fighting it, I'm going back to my Mighty Mouse.

    Replacement should be offered

    I like the sleek design, but it ends there. When I want to left click, I almost always have to attempt at least twice because it only responds if my finger is almost on the bottom of it. Extremely poor design to have the charging port on the bottom. This renders the not-so-magic mouse useless while charging. I have to constantly check the charge level because there are no warnings until it is about to die. I have had this iMac and Magic Mouse 2 since 1/28/17 and am very disappointed in the mouse. Last evening I decided to proactively check the battery level and it was at 48%. So I plugged it in all night and this morning it is only at 82%. For the prices we pay for Apple quality, we should all get a free replacement, in my opinion.

    Right-click catastrophic

    Some important features on Apple products are extremely unfriendly. I don't want to mention iTunes, but the mouse - right-click is not right click in 80% of the cases. I mean, congrats for a nice design but it doesn't work when I need it.

    I love it but it's stupid

    I do love using this mouse, it's comfortable, responsive and aesthetically complements the rest of my set-up. HOWEVER, who on earth thought it was a good idea to put the charging port on the bottom of the mouse???! While it's charging, it can't be used. Luckily it charges fairly quickly (rumour is just a 2 minute charge would be enough for 8 hours) but still. It's annoying to have to have a back-up mouse should it need a charge at an inopportune time. Hopefully the next version rectifies this major design flaw.

    Abomination of industrial design

    This mouse is pathetic. It's an abomination. The charging port is on the bottom of the mouse. Run out of power while you're using your shiny £80 Magic Mouse 2? TOUGH. You'll need another mouse, as you can't charge this one while you use it. This is an absolute disgrace. An appalling example of industrial design.

    Stay away. Do not buy.

    Sidestepping innovation!

    Other than weight, there are no changes here, oh, except for the fact that this mouse is now rechargeable thanks to a port that is in the most inconvenient place imaginable - on the bottom of the mouse. So, you have to use another mouse while it's charging. How can Apple miss this problem? I own three other mice that have charging ports on the front so you can either leave them plugged in as a wired mouse, or conveniently charge while working.

    Other than that, the things we still liked about the mouse are still there, the things we didn't like are still there too. I bought and returned mine same day.

    Epic Failure

    The charging port is on the bottom, which renders it useless when it expires halfway through a document, what highly paid genius decided the bottom would be a great place for a charging port?
    Sorry Apple, epic failure..........

    Back to the shop it went for a refund

    "Upgraded" my ancient 1st gen Magic Mouse to this one thinking the charging port at the bottom wasn't going to be a big issue. Big error of judgement, the mouse run out twice while I was using it and the last time it happened I switched to the original Magic Mouse and returned this stupid thing. Thankfully, Apple customer support is still top notch and getting a refund was not a problem.

    Whoever signed this off needs a refresher in user experience. The previous gen Magic Mouse is still the best Magic Mouse.

    Great mouse, much better then the original with roller ball

    Just received this mouse, and so far it works great. I like the feel of the device, not too heavy, and it's responsive. I use a mouse all day, and it's much easier on my finger for scrolling. As for the comments regarding charging, just plug in the unit at night, and shut it off to save power. It's a wireless mouse people, stop whining about not being able to use while it's plugged in.
    Overall, I would recommend this product!

    No battery mouse is great

    I do not understand why all the negative reviews. It WORKS! It has NO batteries to change all the time. I can charge it when I am asleep. It is lighter than the earlier version of the Magic Mouse. The two mice operate much the same as far as I can tell. What is not to love?

    Read this review if you are mad about charging port

    I'm not one to write a review but I was casually reading through and noticed a TON of hate going towards the Magic Mouse because of the stupid charging port. It's unbelievable how people can't read between the lines. Apple put the charging port on the bottom for a genius reason. Most people don't really care about a mouse being wireless or not, so if they were to plug it into the front, they would forget to unplug it after because it comes second-nature to them and just use it as a wired mouse! So some genius designer realized that if they were going to go to all the trouble of developing and selling a wireless mouse, people better actually use it wirelessly and thus slapped the charger on the bottom. I hope this straightens things out because I'm absolutely tired of seeing all these one-star reviews floating around. As for the actual usage, it's amazing, I love multi-touch on the mouse and got so used to it that I absent-mindedly tried it on an old Dell mouse and started getting mad because it wasn't working. Battery life is exceptional, it would be disastrous if it had the battery life as a phone. And it's an overall added feeling of just using an Apple product.
    I hope people read this review and it brings some light into the whole situation. Everyone have a nice day!

    I hate this mouse

    This mouse is infuriating. It's a massive pain to recharge. You essentially need to have a spare mouse handy for when this one dies. I come into work this morning and immediately get the first message that my mouse was low on battery. Thirty minutes later it's dead, and now I'm on a vintage dell mouse until the Magic Mouse 2 recharges. I desperately miss being able to swap out batteries. Enough that I'm now shopping for a new / different mouse. I'm ready to throw this horrible piece of junk in the trash. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS.

    Best mouse ever produced

    Previous model was great, but that batteries... Now its almost perfect!
    As 3d designer I using apple mouse since first Mighty Mouse, and its form was so biological, I never have ANY problems with wrists, considering I working on my Mac almost 13 hours per every day. Magic Mouse was even better, with more weight and multitouch usability. You know, I have pretty "average hands", and completely don't understand what all that haters here are whining about.

    I hope Apple will remove the main "button" soon too, to make it "full digital", without moving parts. Sure I never heard of expired clicking mechanism on any mouse, but just imagine you don't hear that clicking sound anymore. Complete silence and focus. )
