Good while it works

Excerpt: Using with a MBP 13 Retina - The mouse randomly stops working and requires constant turning on an off to reconnect and work. Even with brand new batteries have the same issue, not reliable enough worth having in my bag anymore
Excerpt: I got this mouse as part of the Mac computer that I had purchased. The look of the mouse is great. It's clean, white and has a smooth nice surface. It looks very nice, and glides very nice across any surface. The bottom o the surface is mostly made of aluminum, a type of metal that Apple seems to favor lately. The "gimick," so to speak, is that the top of the mouse is a multi-touch surface. This means that you can scroll with two fingers, flick pages, and the like.
Excerpt: I was very excited to try this wireless Apple mouse, and while its sleek looking design and lightweight design is attractive, overall I do not like this mouse nearly as much as I thought I would. Apple's incorporation of trackpad features into a mouse was pretty well inevitable, and this aspect of the magic mouse is definitely very useful. But the overall feel of the mouse seems a little bit off.
Summary: it is nice to have a wireless mouse (my kids broke the wire in my previous 2 mouses(mice?)) But this is too sensitive. I barely grip the mouse to move it - and it zooms. I barely move my hand and it scrolls. Basically it constantly scrolls and zooms when I don't want it to. Also, I find it difficult to use in Illustrator. I am used to using the space bar and + and - keys for moving about the page and zooming.
Summary: At first I loved this mouse, it is very light and easy to move, You can scroll, pan, swipe great idea! Then I used it for work inside Adobe CS and Cad software. You have to be incredibly careful, any light accidental touch on the mouse sent my screen panning to the left or up and down. This mouse might be great for folks who naturally keep all of their fingers in the air above the mouse so as not to accidentally touch it, but I like to work with a relaxed hand.
Summary: Slow to resume... Need to click the left button. Right button click need to pressed too far on the right. The scrolling is not as precise as it is with a scroll wheel. The top shinny part is extremmely easy to scratch. Just left it in my bag for a day and tons of scratch already. I much prefered my old mouse.
Summary: I have never been a fan of Apple's mice or keyboards. They are overpriced, and the quality leaves much to be desired. This new mouse has a very sleek and contemporary look; but it scratches easily.Why should I have to spend $14 for a piece of film to protect it? It's already overpriced as it is. APPLE used to give you a choice of a mouse or trackpad with their iMacs. Now they only include the mouse. If you want the track pad, it's an extra $69. Hmmm..
Summary: When I bought my iMac and pulled the magic mouse out I thought it was the coolest thing ever. Until time passed, more and more problems arose. First off, it doesn't let you right-click, second, the bottom of the mouse is rough and it scrapes both the table and underneath the mouse. One day it just stopped working all-together. Just stopped.
