Apple's Magic Mouse is the latest and greatest in their line of impressive mice to go along their computers. I don't own the Magic Mouse (I've still got a Mighty Mouse), but I've been using it a bunch at a producer's home studio where I work. The Magic Mouse is available for purchase individually but it also comes with new iMacs as a stock item. The Magic Mouse is cool for a number of reasons, probably the first reason being that it is multi-touch and response to more than just a single click. It's also really smooth and of course wireless. It runs on batteries but they also advertise rechargeable batteries to go along with it, which is probably a good idea for those who are going to be using their mouse on an everyday basis. The Magic Mouse is definitely the smoothest feeling of the Apple mice that I've come across as it's super easy to navigate with it, which is more than necessary if you're using it with your DAW like Pro Tools where everything needs to be as precise as possible. The only problem I have with the Magic Mouse is the high price if you're going to buy it on it's own, as I really don't think it's worth it over the now much cheaper Mighty Mouse. Of course since this is pretty new I expect the price the drop a good amount so if you can wait I'd recommend it. For me the mighty mouse does just fine, but if you're looking for something with a bit more control and an overall better feel, there's nothing out there quite like the Magic Mouse. If you're on the fence, head over to your local Apple shop and try it for yourself to see if it's worth it for you.
The apple magic mouse is a wireless mouse with a nice sleek design that is very tempting and makes you want to buy it straight away. I must say though that having got one with my imac it is pretty lame.
The mouse is very slow moving which aggravates me a lot, yes I know that you can turn up the speed on the mouse but it makes it even worse. Also, since it is all packed full of mini 'cool' short cuts that you can do with your fingers by putting them in all kinds of weird positions it is really easy to click a short cut by accident, which in my eyes is very inconvenient and annoying.
The mouse is pretty heavy also which adds to the effort you have to put in moving it, yes it feels sturdy but a light weight mouse is just so much nicer to handle in my opinion.
Also the mouse is bright white, so do not have messy hands when using it or it will be ruined.
As for the price I would say it is a rip off for what it is, but like all apple products they like to charge high so people think they are better than other models which I dislike quite a lot.
Knowing what I do now I would choose to avoid this product, it has too many flaws that definitely out weigh the positives in relation to a mouse, I like mice that are light weight and quite quick across the screen. The magic mouse is the total opposite of what I like so I would not choose this again.
One last thing is, I feel as though having a mouse look nice and performing badly is worse than having a mouse that looks rubbish and performs well.
