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.
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.
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.
