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.

I expected an Apple product to be the best - and bought it blind. It turns out to be very uncomfortable, especially in extended use. the mouse sits very flat with no suopport for your palm , and your index finger ends up supporting your hand and wrist. After a while, it's literally painful. I would recommend the Logitech with the ball.

      I purchased my new MacBook Pro from BH Video and this Magic Mouse was part of my purchase. It is sleek, feels good in my hand and so easy to install.

              This magic mouse is for my wife. She and I have used Mac for 5 years. I use the magic mouse but she continued to use a "normal" mouse. After using the magic mouse, she really satisfies several functions and design of the magic mouse.

                  This is the most trouble free mouse I've ever owned. The feel is fantastic. You hold this thing, hardly registering that it's there. The bad thing is not remembering to turn off the power.

                    only gripe is this mouse is a battery muncher, rechargeable batteries are a must!

                      At first glance this seems like an average mouse at best. However, the slide and glide features (think iPad gestures) are the best thing going for it. It allows me to access mission control through a "light double tap." Very responsive and though you can't see it, you can add right mouse clicking features as well.

                      Comments about Apple Magic Mouse:

                      I got this to use with a MacBook Pro -- was tired of resting my wrist on the sharp edge of the computer when using the built-in trackpad. I like this mouse OK, but it does seem overpriced for what it is. (Some will say "typical Apple" but I find most of their products to be worth the price.)

                      I was able to adjust the speed well enough for my use, and tracking is good. The shape seems fine to me, in fact I prefer it to the more bulky "ergonomic" designs. But the bottom battery cover touches the desk surface and scrapes slightly, despite the two plastic runners; it's already getting marred. In general the bottom seems to collect more dust than other mice I've used, maybe because the metallic bottom surface creates more static electricity. Battery life seems good so far.

                      I bought this partly thinking that I'd take it when traveling for work, but I may reconsider given the price -- don't want to lose it!

                        Out of the box, scroll will be an issue for sure. It is too slow. I installed MagicPrefs which controls the speed and gave lot of other additional configuration. However, Right click is a nightmare. It is tool hard, but I guess I will get used to that. Also, position of right click is little awkward.

                        For the price I found it at B&H, it was a good purchase!
