Summary: As with the Apple Wireless Keyboard, if you bought this along with a new Mac or Mac Mini, make sure you turn it on BEFORE you turn on the Mac for the initial setup. When you follow that sequence, Setup Assistant takes you to a different branch and pairs the mouse right away so you can provide the inputs needed to finish the initial setup. Doing otherwise will put you into a do-loop where Setup Assistant is asking for inputs you can't give.
Pros: No wires. Bluetooth so no USB transmitter taking up a USB port. I'm using it with a Mac based system so I can't speak to its operation with Windows. No issues with pairing. My Mac recognized it right away. Smooth scrolling with adequate customization features for personalizing use.
Cons: Small, low profile footprint makes it ergonomically uncomfortable for extended or heavy usage times. You need a mousepad with a wrist rest but you should be using one of those anyway. A bit pricy but we are talking about Apple here.
Summary: Got this mice on sale for $39.99, a fair price point for Apple's overpriced accessories. Shipping was fast and well packed, the beautiful plastic case was well protected in 2 cardboard boxes wrapped with bubble wrap and foam. This is my first purchase on Newegg and I'm very satisfied. BTW, this mice works just fine with my MBP, also my Nexus 7!
Pros: Good example of industrial design, bluetooth wireless, laser engine, slim and lightweight
Cons: not ergonomically designed to fit your hand snugly. no carrying solution, overpriced for its list price
Summary: I am a very avid PC gamer and I have also built my own rig. I bought all of my PC parts (not on this account) on newegg too and will continue buying! But back to the mouse, it is nothing special compared to my Razer Naga Molten Edition or the Razer Ourobros I intend on buying but for a mac user like my brother, it works great. I recommend this mouse for a Apple connoisseur or a Mac Cult member. They will like it a lot!
Pros: It works just as advertised. If you know how to go through a very easy set up (on a macbook for me) it is really easy to understand and use.
Cons: This mouse is an apple product. Because of the apple logo obviously there is a necessity to OVERPRICE IT! minus one egg! Other than that, due to the gridlock apple inspires with almost all of its hardware and software, it is a little more of a hassle to set up on a PC; However, I am a gamer and this mouse is for my brother not me. So at the end of the day, everyone is happy.
Summary: I've been a PC/Linux user for many many years and recently switched my Business over to Apple/OSX. Going from various Logitech mice to the Apple Magic Mouse is more than easy. All in all a very happy customer.
Pros: Slick design, easy to use, easy to setup, nice addition to Macbook Pro
Excerpt: As a regular mouse, the Magic Mouse works well for clicking, vertical scrolling. It is not very comfortable when swiping left or right with the fingers. You have to hold the mouse steady to keep it from sliding while swiping. I use it in conjunction with Apple's trackpad.
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly, Great Features, Works On Any Surface
Summary: First off, the first day you buy this mouse you need to download "Better Touch tool". This FREE software really unlocks a lot more potential from the mouse (i.e. more gestures). This makes the mouse much more tolerable. The mouse performs very well in cs5, while surfing the web and general tasks around the computer. I have yet to use this mouse for gaming but I feel like it would work for most games.
Pros: Overall I have to give this mouse a 4/5 for the technology that went into it. The touch sensing technology is great and the feel of the mouse screams high quality along with it's good looks. The scrolling is awesome and the tracking is very accurate. Look at my "other thoughts" to learn how to unlock the mouse’s real potential.
Cons: This mouse is unlike any I've ever seen. It takes all the best aspects about comfort from the best mice and throws them out the window. At first the mouse was surprisingly awkward to use; it took a couple days to find the best way to hold the mouse in such a way that using the swiping gestures didn't feel awkward. After that period the mouse is most certainly more comfortable but you will never get total comfort with this mouse. The only issue I have with the touch se...
Summary: I brought an apple magic mouse last month. The apple magic mouse is very useful for me, because I change my computer form PC to MAC. I use the PC for so many year. sudden I use the MACBook Pro. this new computer I could not complete to got all the function. Lucky the apple magic mouse let me practice the new method and the old method. So I am very fast to catch how to use my new MACBook Pro.
