Pricy but a Nice Mouse

Andrew B., Newegg
10 March 2013
  • 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.

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. %s
  • 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.

Good deal

Xianzhao W., Newegg
8 February 2013
  • 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

It Works Just Like Advertised

Kasim I., Newegg
16 January 2013
  • 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.

Great mouse, but only on OS X.

milea, CNET
22 October 2012
  • Summary: Great mouse on OS X, but is like 5$ mouse on Windows. If we are lucky and receive nice drivers from Apple this will be great mouse on upcoming Windows 8 with new metro interface.
  • Pros: Great design, Works well on OS X, Very customizable with MagicPrefs on OS X
  • Cons: Bad for design work (lack a middle mutton on Windows), Very short battery life (2 weeks with original batteries), On Windows is like 5$ mouse, Bad ergonomics, Price

Like Magic!

  • 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
  • Cons: Uncomfortable Design
