Excerpt: I am a big Apple fan. I normally use laptops and their track-pads, but when my husband convinced me to try an mmo I decided to get a real mouse, and of course immediately thought of Apple's Mighty Mouse. A friend of mine has the wired version and I always rather liked it, I never found any problems with it when I helped her with her iMac. But, me with my laptops I of course decided to go with the wireless version, which I think is part of the problem. Also, to play...
Excerpt: I liked that this mouse runs on Bluetooth and easily connects to any laptop with bluetooth. I liked the bluetooth feature because you don't have to remember the usb stick, but that means you have to go through the bluetooth pairing process with each new computer you use it with. It is pretty lightweight, has two AA battery slots but only requires one to work, and tracks smoothly on just about any surface. The ball for scrolling also works well, but it gets dirty easily...
Pros: It's pretty and it works well in the Mac OS.
Cons: Nowhere near ergonomic, side buttons require too much pressure to use, battery case lock flimsy and scratches surfaces, scroll ball must be cleaned monthly. Nearly useless when running Windows in Bootcamp or Parallels.
Summary: It is a nice wireless mouth by Apple with cook features and slick look; however, the batteries that came with the mouse had a very short life-span. They died within a few hours!!!!!!!!!!!!! and could no longer be connected to my Mac via blue-tooth.
