Summary: This mouse was not one of Apple's best designs. Is it functional? Yes. But only for a while before the track-nipple on top becomes stuck and unusable. Even using the suggested "rub it as fast as you can on a mousepad" solution stopped working after a while. I ended up taking it apart, and cleaning it, but that's obnoxious, because it never really completely goes back together. Really, just about any other mouse would be better than this one.
Summary: I had to replace my original Apple Mighty Mouse because I accidentally dropped it and it hit on a hard metal surface and came apart. I figured I'd never find another one. I was very happy to find this one (even though the price surprised me, kinda steep). It arrived on time and in good condition. When I placed the batteries in, my MacMini immediately begun its recognition process and then was done.
Unable to use this mouse without an extension USB cord

Summary: The cord on this mouse is so short that I am unable to use it with my Apple lap top. I am right handed and all of the USB ports are on the left side. The cord isn't long enough to go around my computer to the other side.
Summary: I discovered that this particular model of mouse is not easy to find anymore. It is no longer available at Apple. It is the original Apple wireless mouse that does not require any USB receiver. It takes 2 AA batteries is all. The scrolling works a smidge different than the original, but nothing that requires a lot of getting use too.
Excerpt: Just as Mighty Mouse saved the day back in the golden years of cartoons, Apple's Mighty Mouse will save your day with its ease of use with your Apple computer. Bluetooth enabled, no longer is your mouse tied to a wire and with its mini-track ball, you can navigate pages and content with a slide of the tip of your finger.
Excerpt: This is a great step forward for Macs. Simple, easy to use software makes this mouse virtually endlessly versatile. The addition of not only a right button on the mouse, but a scroll wheel and side buttons allow you to manipulate various Finder based features, as well as many other software specific features. Though arguably long over due, these features are done in true Apple form - simple and elegant.
Excerpt: This is kind of like third in a series of three reviews. I had a laptop mishap, damaging the display on my MacBook.
