    Black, buttery goodness

    This mouse is certainly not worth the price. But if you do fork over $$$, and you can afford it, this is an amazing little machine. I love the sleek design, and the click mechanism is always satisfying. The laser is very accurate, and boots up very fast. I'm also not shot in the eyeball when I start it, because the laser is "invisible." I'm sure it might cause damage if you stare for too long, but a passing glance as you turn on the device won't do harm. The scroll is nice, and the preferences allow you to make the experience your own. If you want to complain about the port on the bottom, just charge it for 10 minutes and then overnight. You'll get used to it. It's art. It doesn't care about your hole preference. Get over it.

    Great Mouse

    I too do not understand why some reviewers have trashed the mouse because it cannot be used during charging. The charge takes no time whatsoever. I have tried other wireless mice and none of them integrate as well as this one with my MacBook Pro.

    Almost Perfect At a Price

    The mouse works like my past mouse, which was great. Only two gripes

    1) For a company obsessed with human UX. Why in the world would you put the charge port on the bottom instead of the front so I can use it like a traditional mouse while it charges? Yes, I understand that's where the hardware fits without significant custom design but come on this is an Apple branded product not some no name third party product.

    2) Why am I paying a $20 premium for Space Grey? Does it really cost $20 more to manufacture Space Gray? Really?

    Great Mouse - Charging Explained

    Hi everyone, I just purchased the Magic Mouse 2 and I love it. I wanted to explain the charging issue. There is none. The battery charge gives you 7.5 minutes of use for every one second that you charge. So, if you charge it for 5 seconds, you’ll get a little over 30 minutes of use.

    Gorgeous mouse!

    I recently purchased the space gray magic mouse 2. My old mouse was the AA battery powered white magic mouse. I LOVE the new mouse. It's really beautiful. The click weight is better. The weight of the mouse is better (lighter). The battery lasts for a long time. No more constant battery charging.

    I would have preferred if Apple kept the power light that was next to the on-switch, but that's nit-picking. Also -- WHY is it $20 more than the white one? I actually didn't realize this until after I had bought it. Having said all that, I'd highly recommend this mouse, and specifically the space gray. Oh, and one more thing... from a practical standpoint it matters very little that the lightning port is beneath the mouse. The battery lasts for very long time, and the charging is very fast.

    LOVE the Black, but still Dislike the Charging Location

    Just love the black! But still wish the charging port was like at the top like the Apple Keyboard...so a person could keeping using it while it's charging.

    So like other reviews I've left...while I absolutely LOVE Apple...I will have to admit to being a lil' disappointed that the Space Gray costs more. I mean we have 3 Space Gray MBP 15" and they didn't "cost" more...does seem a lil' money grubby...maybe? Yet, still love it!

    And Apple needs to add the Space Gray options when a person orders a brand new Mac / iMac, Mac Mini, as well. Even if they do cost more still than the silver.

    Yes, the charging port IS a fatal flaw.

    Unlike Don L from Tucson's nail buffer, if you work on a Mac (like I do) you need to use it every day, for 8+ hours. What am I supposed to do when the battery dies at 3pm? The answer is "have a spare USB mouse lying around", which is a ridiculous solution for a ridiculous design flaw in a ridiculous $99 ($129 CAD) mouse.

    In the previous iteration with batteries, this took roughly a minute to swap out with some fresh rechargeable AAs. Apple created a problem where one didn't exist, for reasons that are completely unfathomable to me.

    The only reason I think people actually use these things is that they get one included with their Mac. Who would willingly drop this much money on a horribly designed piece of junk?

    Returning - Straw that Broke the Camel's Back

    Listen, it was already difficult to swallow the price hike JUST for a color other than silver. Also have read several reviews on the poor charge port location (though it charges fast enough that might not be an issue). Despite that, I went through with this because I wanted a mouse that matched my new MacBook Pro. While it is entirely my fault I didn't pay enough attention, it boggles my mind that this does not come with a USB C cable, or at LEAST an adapter. Add that on top of everything else, I no longer want this product.

    why apple why?

    Style over function taken to a laughable extreme. Putting the charging port on the bottom is absolute madness! Yes, I can see that putting it on the side might make it less beautiful and possibly uncomfortable if if was placed in the middle or at the back, but if it was placed at the very front of either side it wouldn't ever be touched whether you are left or right handed. having to stop your workflow when the battery dies is incredibly frustrating. yes it's rare but if you use your computer every day for hours then it happens regularly enough to drive you mad. I've been reduced to buying a competitors mouse (which is inferior in every other way) for the sake of my sanity. The magic mouse is a beautiful device in every other way, but considering that Apple brought the mouse to the world (sorry Xerox), this simply can't be left as hindered as it is. Please fix this one guys.

    Form at the expense of function

    Touch sensitivity for left/right clicks seems to work well enough, which is nice. However, the mouse is shallow and uncomfortable to use for long periods—your hand has to arch over it rather than resting on it. Much worse, though, the optical sensor is located at the tip of the mouse rather than near its base or centre. What that means is only hand movements that extend to your fingertips are picked up when tracking motion. That leaves tiny movements of your hand around your wrist invisible to the mouse. The result is a bizarrely inaccurate and jittery mouse when it comes to tracking. So this isn't just discomfort--it's actually a usability issue. I returned it and bought a $15 Dell mouse. Saved almost $100, much more comfortable, and much more accurate. The Mighty Mouse is a great example of form at the expense of function. In its present design (which has been around for a long time) it shouldn't have been allowed out of the gate. (Also: Who cares about wireless? Seriously. If you're genuinely frustrated by the presence of a mouse cord you have issues.)

    Awful mouse stay away from it if you can.

    1. Lightning port on the bottom of the mouse, why?
    2. The extremely shallow mouse is incredibly uncomfortable in your hand, and leaves an unnatural fealing.
    3. Zero buttons makes the mouse very inconvenient, (similiar to how the iPhone X is inconvenient due to a lack of a home button.)
    4. $100

    Overall I would just purchase a $10 mouse off of amazon that has buttons, a much more comfortable grip, and doesn't require you to flip your mouse over so that you can use it later.

    This mouse does NOT have a fatal flaw

    This mouse does NOT have any fatal flaws. Virtually every rechargeable device that I have will NOT operate while charging. That includes electric razors, grooming trimmers, nail buffers, drills, cameras, phones, etc, etc. But if a mouse charging port is not on the side so that it can be used while charging it is given a one star ratings and a hate speach. Guess what, peeps! Even if the charging port were on the side, you would still NOT be able to use it while charging.... Doh! The good news is... a quick two minute charge will give you enough juice for another eight hours of use, and a full charge will last more than a month. The real reason that the charging port is on the bottom is for a visual indication that the mouse cannot be used while charging (for people dumber than a bag of hair). Good work Apple. The magic mouse 2 is AWESOME!

    My favorite work mouse

    I've been using a Magic Mouse for over five years for my job as a software engineer. It makes me dramatically more efficient while writing code.

    NOT THE SAME COLOR AS MACBOOKS!!!

    3 shades of “Space Gray?” Unfortunately, it’s true.

    We all know by now that the Space Gray color of the iPhone X (and perhaps the other latest generation model iPhones) is drastically different from the Space Gray of the MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops.

    As annoying and confusing as that may be, I am a person who likes things to match… so with all of the hype (not to mention the $20 upcharge for this “premium” product) surrounding the new “Space Gray” accessories, I was excited to finally be able to buy a wireless mouse that is the same color as my MacBook Pro.

    Therefore, I was shocked and very disappointed to get home, place them side by side and find that THEY ARE DIFFERENT COLORS!!!

    Apparently the iMac Pro introduced a THIRD shade of “Space Gray” that is darker than the MacBooks, yet lighter than the iPhone X.

    So, the new Space Gray wireless mouse is the same color as the iMac Pro… NOT the MacBook or MacBook Pro laptops (and not the iPhone X).

    I just don’t get it!

    Great Mouse

    I don't know why people keep complaining about the charging port being on the bottom. The battery lasts well over a month if not two of everyday all day use. This means that 1 day out of 60. You have to remember to plug it in at night or before leaving work and your set for another 60 days..
    Not only that, but in about 2 min of charging the mouse gains about 8 hours of battery life. yes, I said 2 min people!
    My only complaint would be that scrolling is sometimes too sensitive. Other than that its a great mouse!

    Why haven't you changed the charging port location?!?

    This has been a fatal flaw issue for too long!
    How hard is it to change the charging port location to be on the side so the mouse is still useable while charging?

    For those, who like silver/black Apple Magic Mouse 2

    Same design as white color. I have silver/black macbook pro and decided it whould be nice to have similar color the magic mouse too. You can consider to upgrade in case you like the new color or if your magic mouse old version and has AA batteries insted of rechargable battery. Enjoy what makes you happy. :)

    Love the mouse, but still bundled with old USB cable

    A great looking device with one grumble.

    With Apple moving all their computers to USB-C only ports it baffles me that the unique black lightning cables manufactured just for these devices are regular USB and not USB-C. Definitely something to be aware of before you buy as the cost of another adapter or cable may be enough to make you think twice, especially as you are already paying a $20 premium for this version of the mouse.

    Great design... until you have to charge it

    Apple has always been good about design of products. Here they have dropped the ball. It is fantastic to be able to charge the mouse and not have to buy new batteries for countless reasons... but to not be able to use the mouse because the lightning port was designed to be on the bottom of the device is just a complete misstep. When you loose power you have to completely stop productivity to charge the device.
