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: 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: 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.

Pros: Pretty to look at. Easy to connect and disconnect.
Cons: Ergonomically uncomfortable design. Documents in CS4 InDesign jump all over screen when using the Magic Mouse. Were it not so flawed in both design and functionality, the price ($64.99) might be easier to stomach.
