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.

          Despite its appearance, its name, and its Apple hype, this mouse is no better than any other more reasonably priced plastic mouse from China. It works poorly and soon wears out.

          B&HPhotoVideo is simply the best. They always deliver on time and the shipped goods show up as expected. Highly recommended. Also they have the best prices anywhere. I bought an apple magic mouse. Ofcourse its agreat product. I'm very happy with it. And would buy it again (from B&HPhotoVideo) if required. Highly recommended.

            Comments about Apple Magic Mouse:

            It looks really nice. You don't forget it.The glass surface is really nice.It has a little more weight to it than most plastic mice I've used. It makes moving it around feel good.If you're using it on Mac you get a lot of really nice features that I used to only get when using the trackpad.Can't really think about too many cons. Since it is bluetooth I have to change batteries about once every other month or so instead of every six months with my old logitech mouse that used a USB receiver. But now I have an extra USB input so it's worth it.

              I've used track balls, wired and wireless mouses. The Apple Magic Mouse is bluetooth, which is quite nice! It's like a mouse and trackpad combined, which has been quite pleasant to use. My only issue is sometimes I end up flying across an Excel spreadsheet with a slight finger twitch. Still severe muscle memory using older devices. Other than that, I really like this magic mouse!

                      I was using an old Dell mouse for years, which was reliable. But once I played with the magic mouse I knew I had to have it. It was so much more versatile for the work I do (video editing). It's great to be able to scroll not just up or down but left or right. Also great for paginating on the web. Acts more like a laptop pad than a mouse. Doesn't feel as good as some older mouses (mice?) since its sleeker design is less ergonomic, but for functionality I don't know of another mouse that's better. Not that I'm an expert.

                        It's fully ergonomic and intuitive to use, push-pull, swipe and left-right easy clicking. Pushing and pulling scroll coasts when flicked quickly.
                        Apple has another cutting edge product here and the quality is the highest.

                          Majic mouse is unique in function and look. B&H was the cheapest. It was delivered free in 4days right on time. I highly recommend the combination.
