"Simple functionality. Also works with Windows."
2 March 2013
Pros: Easy to setup via Bluetooth with a Mac desktop or laptop. To use it for Windows 7 and 8 you need to download drivers and utility tool via internet. http://www.trackpadmagic.com/magic-mouse/download
Cons: At even the 'fast' Pointer Tracking Setting the speed is slower in Macs. Vertical and Horizontal Scrolling moved swiftly. On the contrary for Windows 7 and 8 the Pointer Tracking speed moved faster but the vertical and horizontal scrolling lags.
Excerpt: I've had Apple's new Magic mouse for around a week or two. While I am impressed with the multi touch gestures and the rather interesting new design. It does tend to force your hand in an odd position if you have large hands like I do. What happens is your middle finger ends up getting shifted off of the mouse on the right side and after a bit of use you will start to feel the effects in your wrist. However, I have found this to be the only conn to the mouse.
Excerpt: All the different gestures you can do with this touch sensitive shell thing is awesome and very efficient sometimes.The bluetooth actually works nicely, it looks great and feels really smooth in your hand. The small size is easy to pack along with your laptop and you can adjust the sensitivity of the touch on the mouse and the arrow movement speed on the screen.

Excerpt: I didn't have a choice when I got a new mouse. I purchases a iMac 27" computer refurbished and did not get a choice of keyboard or mouse. I frankly thought I would not use this mouse and attach my old microsoft mouse that i have been using for years. Its features are what sold me. It has the ability to set it up to right click just as my windows mouse does with out hitting the control button. I relay like the feature that lets you scroll using only one finger.
Excerpt: I literally drove all around Dallas just trying to find a store that had one of these in stock when they first came out. I finally found at a Best Buy and quickly booked it home to try out my brand new magic mouse. On first impression, this mouse was pretty awesome. Just imagine all the cool touch features you can do on a Macbook Pro trackpad transported to the mouse.
Easy to use, loves batteries! Feels like a Magic Mouse... it is

Excerpt: This mouse is good if you use it just as a mouse. For graphics or anything where you need precision, get something else (I have a graphics tablet as well). It tracks well, and is comfortable with what you see on the screen. Scrolling is usually zero issue unless you have something making contact with another part of the mouse. Even then, it usually works, but sometimes it can be tough to scroll when you want. A second try, though, will usually do it.
Excerpt: This mouse works great, especially when seated (when standing up and using it on a counter, I found that it can be a bit awkward). I've got really great battery life so far, at least for a bluetooth mouse. Combine it with a few sets of rechargeable batteries and it is the perfect mouse. It's the perfect portable mouse. It's slim and takes up little room.
Excerpt: The mouse undoubtedly the best mouse Apple's made in years. They've taken their knowledge in trackpad finger gestures and one-piece manufacturing and made this delicate, yet sturdy, bridge-shaped mouse. The question is how it compares to other mice. As we said in the mouse has one piece of clear white plastic on the top, curved, like a Dove bar.
Excerpt: For a college student such as myself, the latest technology is not only cool, but it makes one look like a badass to his or her friends. When I pulled out my Magic Mouse to use for my laptop, my roommates were all going bananas! They loved and they all wanted to try it. Alas, I wasn't in the sharing mood at that point, but enough about that. Back to the important matter, which is ranting and raving about this mouse. It's fantastic!
