This Mouse came with my iMac and is like a cross between a mouse and a trackpad. Like a traditional mouse you move the cursor by moving the mouse, and since it is optical it will work on any surface short of gravel. The really cool features involve the top. The ENTIRE top surface is like a trackpad in that it responds to your fingertips. You can use it to scroll up/down, left right, Zoom in/out and page forward/back with the two finger swipe. Read the guide and the pamphlet titled Finger Tips that comes with it to fully utilize all this mouse has to offer. I think it it the this last feature, the two finger swipe, that most people seem to have a problem with. If you press down on the mouse too hard you will activate the one button click and/or move the cursor. If you move too slow it will scroll the page. The trick is to hold your index and middle fingers together and LIGHTLY swipe your fingers across the surface using a quick smooth and swift motion. It takes a little time, but with practice this light quick and smooth motion will become easier to the point of being second nature. The best way to practice is open your web browser and go to several different pages on the same window and practice swiping back & forth to page forward & back. Bottom line is once you get past this mouses' sleek futuristic aesthetics you will find a well thought out and powerful tool that speeds up your work. If it had not come with my iMac I would still buy it, though it has taken me time to fully appreciate all this mouse has to offer.

Great design like all apple products. I expected a bit more of the mouse, like exposé function through the trackpad you get with the new macbook pro and zooming without having to use the keyboard. Hope apple will fix that for the future, it's a matter of upgrading the driver.

              This is a great mouse, a lot like a laptop touchpad, my only complaint is that it is very sensitive, if you accidentally touch it, it will scroll away to another page accidentally.

                Comments about Apple Magic Mouse:

                I replaced my old Apple wired mouse with this unit, quite reluctantly. After all, the old mouse worked, but with my desk arrangement and Wacom tablet use, the wire was troublesome.

                As expected, out of the box, this Magic Mouse was a breeze to set up. It's optical engine is precise, the buttons are easily configured according to your desire, more so with MagicPrefs, and it's all the more comfortable to use.

                I use this primarily in my digital workflow for those moments with the Wacom isn't what I want. Between Photoshop and Painter, it is a perfect companion to the Wacom tablet.

                With less than thirty days use, I haven't found anything that I don't like. Of course B&H shipping is spot-on timely with a reputation that instills confidence.

                        Exactly what you would expect from Apple. A great product. Use one at work and once I got a new MacBook Pro for personal use this was a no brainer, I had to buy. It is an awesome product to use with your Mac.
