Apple Mighty Mouse
1 December 2007
Excerpt: Usually ahead of the curve, Apple has belatedly released a multibutton mouse. The optical Apple Mighty Mouse can be customized for different users and has two invisible touch-sensitive buttons on top, force-sensing buttons on the sides, and a teensy ball for omnidirectional scrolling.
Conclusion: At 69, Apple's Wireless Mighty Mouse is not for everyone. It is made with mobility in mind and is ideal for MacBook/MacBook Pro users on the run. There's no need for the monotonous plugging in of USB cords as with other mice.
Summary: In the future, I expect Apple to address most, if not all, of the Mighty Mouse’s imperfections—probably in the Bluetooth version that is sure to follow. Until that time, I have found that these flaws simply required adjusting to the new critter.
Conclusion: When all is said and done, all of the the Apple PR on the Mighty Mouse product page is a bit much. As a poster in the Mac Ach succinctly observed, "this thing isn't as revolutionary as one may think. It's just nice to have an Apple mouse with a frickin' scroll button and right click.
Conclusion: So has losing the wires helped? Most definitely, its always nice to declutter your desktop. It's also helps when it comes to using it with a laptop if you travel a lot as no wires means no getting tangled at the bottom of the bag.
Pros: No wires, easy setup
Cons: Expensive, you'll have to buy batteries every now and then
Conclusion: At £35 this is an expensive mouse no matter whether it’s “mighty” or not. We found no difficult using the new buttons even though we’ve read a series of reports and reviews online to suggest otherwise, in fact we are left baffled by one we saw which suggested that Apple should release new guidelines...
Conclusion: Apple covers the Mighty Mouse with an industry-standard one-year warranty. Free phone support is available for the first 90 days after purchase, and Apple's support Web site offers troubleshooting advice, FAQs, and a searchable users' forum.
Pros: Side buttons are hard to squeeze, Comfort could be improved
Cons: Attractive design, Scroll ball is comfortable and easy to use, Works with Windows and Mac systems, Integration with Tiger is flawless
