    Cable?

    • Written by Gregory M from Trevor

    Works like a mouse should work. Purchased for use with a 2018 MacBook Pro; since Apple decided to limit ports on the new MacBook to Thunderbolt 3, it would be nice if they would include the same cable with the mouse (T3 to T3) rather than a Thunderbolt 3 to USB (thereby requiring an adapter cable to charge the mouse).

    Why have a cavity for the laser?

    • Written by Steven C from Milford

    The cavity for the laser made sense when it took AA batteries and the plate could be removed so you could easily clean off the area. Clearly the designers don't have cats. In case you didn't know, they shed fine hairs and love to lay on your desk right next to your arm when you're working. So cat hair inevitably ends up on the mousepad, even when the cats are well-groomed, and once in a while the tiniest hair ever will end up stuck in the laser cavity and break the $100 mouse. You have to flip the thing over on an operating table with a bright surgical light and use tweezers wearing a sterile operating suit to remove it. At this point, with no removable plate for that area, why not just cover the entire laser cavity flush against the bottom of the mouse with a clear plastic so nothing can get in? It's ridiculous that I have to go through this so often. Aside from that flaw that was bad before but far worse now that the plate isn't removable, I have always liked these mice.

    I prefer the first Magic Mouse over this one...

    • Written by Kyle D from Huntersville

    I bought this mouse to go with my new Space Grey MacBook Pro. I love the excellent battery life and the gestures that the mouse facilitates. However, I find that is quite awkward to use from an ergonomics standpoint. It seems that the position I find myself holding the mouse in gets quite uncomfortable during prolonged periods of use. Additionally, this thing show fingerprints horribly! Admittedly, I am quite OCD when it comes to things like this, but it really destroys an otherwise beautifully designed product. I don't mind having to plug it in on the bottom, but I would rather just swap the batteries out like I did with my old Magic Mouse.

    Poor Design

    • Written by Laura W from Waynesboro

    While the mouse works fine, the charge port being on the bottom of the mouse is a very poor design. Thus, when charging, rendering the mouse useless until charge is complete.

    Mixed Bag

    • Written by Brandon W from Delta

    The gestures are nice, it visually looks pleasing but it really is not the most ergonomically friendly device. My main complaint... how am i supposed to charge my mouse when the usb-c cant even accept the included cable? a ridiculous oversight

    This is amazing

    • Written by Trevor S from Stanwood

    I dont know why others are complaining about the port, because it charges in two minutes to give nine hours of battery life. The mouse works very well, connecting it to a mac is easy and when fully charged, it lasts for a month

    Almost Perfect At a Price

    • Written by Stephen L from Harleysville

    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?

    why apple why?

    • Written by Justin M from Cork

    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.

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

    • Written by Audra K from New York

    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?

    Love the mouse, but still bundled with old USB cable

    • Written by Gordon B from Sydney

    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

    • Written by Steven P from Norwalk

    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.
