    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.

    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?

    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).

    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.

    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

    Not worth the price

    • Written by Lee M from Toronto

    This is just an average mouse. I ended up returning it as I found it not comfortable to use as it's so flat that you end up having to put your hand in a claw like shape to use it. My hand was cramping up and it wasn't fun to use. I also found the tracking a bit choppy for the price, as it definitely isn't as smooth as a wired mouse. I bought a $24 Microsoft bluetooth mouse and I find it works much better and is much more comfortable. If this mouse was half the price it would be totally worth it, but for the price you pay you could get a very high quality mouse.

    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.

    Very interesting.

    • Written by Mike B from Butler

    I've used a trackball for years. Despising the dragging and moving of a mouse on a pad seemed so subservient. Im going to give this Magic Mouse a try for awhile. What is so cool is; quickly moving the Magic Mouse, moves the pointer relatively further across the display. Hahahaha, thats slick. Like I said, this is a trial for 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.

    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?
