Product Highlights
  • Touch-Sensitive Buttons
  • Force-Sensitive Side Buttons
  • 360° Scrolling Ball

The Wired Mouse from Apple is an elegant, ergonomic companion for your computer. The sleek design features touch-sensitive buttons that respond to touch, without mechanical clicking necessary. In place of a scroll-wheel, a scroll-ball allows you to scroll 360° around documents and webpages, giving you complete browsing freedom. Force-sensitive side buttons can be set to quickly activate frequently-used accessibility features like Expose and Dashboard. This aesthetic device is Apple's answer to the traditional mouse.

Innovative Scroll Ball and Button
Perfectly positioned to roll smoothly under just one finger, the Apple Mouse's Scroll Ball offers full 360° scrolling capability — up/down, left/right and diagonally. You can scroll long web pages, pan full-size images, maneuver around large spreadsheets, control a video timeline and more. And you can even click the Scroll Ball to access your favorite Mac OS X features such as Dashboard, Spotlight or Expose.
Touch-Sensitive Top Shell
It looks and feels like a sleek one-button mouse, but the Apple Mouse's smooth top shell hides a powerful secret: touch-sensitive technology under the shell detects which part of the mouse you're clicking, so you can both left-click and right-click. And if you prefer the simplicity of a classic one-button mouse, the Apple Mouse is up to the task. Just use the Mac OS X system preference pane to configure it how you want.
Force-Sensing Side Buttons
When you give the Apple Mouse a squeeze, force-sensing side buttons can be configured to activate Mac OS X features such as Dashboard, Expose or a whole host of other customizable features.
Customizable
If you have Mac OS X, the Apple Mouse can give you fingertip access to the special features you love. Simply use the system preference panel to configure the Apple Mouse in the way that makes you most powerful. Control the Scroll Ball's tracking and click functions, as well as the right, left and side click functions. You even can set up different mouse profiles for every user account on your Mac.
Optical Tracking
Powered by a precision optical sensor, the Apple Mouse provides responsive and accurate cursor movement on almost any type of surface — no mouse pad required.

      Very good grip. The precise, sharp. Very easy to use ball control. The only negative - the ball quickly enough fouls (3-6 months). Refine you can go upside down mouse on a blank sheet of paper.
      For quality and convenience of 5 stars, with the rapid contamination of 4 stars.

      This would be the best mouse I've ever used, but Apple flubbed it and made it with a mechanical trackball that gets paralyzed by gunk, and is impossible to clean without surgery. Don't believe the cleaning advice, including Apple's, that says you can restore it with external cleaning. This wil keep it going just a little longer. It's a ridiculously, insultingly flawed design, mostly because it is so bad, yet so close to perfection otherwise. This mouse infuriates me. I've gone through three, and am now trying to figure out what to switch to.

        Track balls get clogged. Mine was pushing 5 years of use. That's why they've been replaced with wireless designs in most equipment. But my G-5 OS won't accept wireless mouses. B&H had the original track ball mouse I could not find anywhere else. Works great. Should have ordered two.

        I use this product everyday for graphic design projects. I did have a wireless that constantly needed batteries! I reused my rechargable batteries for the last time and went back to the old method. Love it! It is less touchy and works smoother for graphic control.

          Comments about Apple Wired Mouse:

          Previously had a wireless mouse for my iMac. But, I was getting tired of feeding the darn thing batteries, and it frequently lost connection with the computer. So, I started looking for a new mouse. Saw an Apple mouse at the University of Washington bookstore, in Seattle - but it was $[$] before taxes. I went on line and B&H had the exact item for $[$] - with no shipping or tax. No brainer. I went with B&H. Besides, I purchased my son's Mac Book from B&H in 2010. B&H is great.

              The mouse is used with a ca 2010 MacPro for which a wireless mouse was supplied. It ate batteries so the wired mouse was the logical replacement. Scrolling in any direction is the best feature.

                            It's a mouse, works just like it should.

                              Hooked up to USB port on Mac keyboard, worked right away. As easy as that.

                                This would be the best mouse I've ever used, but Apple flubbed it and made it with a mechanical trackball that gets paralyzed by gunk, and is impossible to clean without surgery. Don't believe the cleaning advice, including Apple's, that says you can restore it with external cleaning. This wil keep it going just a little longer. It's a ridiculously, insultingly flawed design, mostly because it is so bad, yet so close to perfection otherwise. This mouse infuriates me. I've gone through three, and am now trying to figure out what to switch to.
