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.

          Comments about Apple Magic Mouse:

          Fantastic! I had never used one before but I bought it expecting it to exceed my expectations like all my Apple products have so far. And it has done just that! It connects very quickly to my MacBook, and so far has worked extremely well on a variety of surfaces. It can also be customized which is very nice because it has more features than I really care to use. I have yet to find something I don't like about it.

                      Easy to set up, very good looking, powerful function when used together with a Mac.
                      Unfortunately it lacks precision and the cursor always takes a while to respond to your gestures.

                              I literally love this mouse.

                              The smoothness of the way it scrolls, swipes and all the other multitouch features always has me blown away as to why can't any PC manufacturer make anything that comes close?

                                  First of all kuddos to B&H. I bought a 27 inch iMac and when it arrived it had no mouse. I contacted B&H and thought it would be a big deal but they ship a new mouse within hours and had it home the following day. Thank you B&H. Now, the only problem is that the mouse was the magic Mouse. lol. This is my first Mac and like my previous PCs I'm setting it up to use the mouse for everything except writing. Screw keywords. I'm a mouse man. So I was surprised that the iMac really wants you to use the keyboard for keywords, etc, but I was really surprised by how bad the Magic Mouse is. Tracking is too slow even in the highest setting and the way is designed is giving me carpal tunnel. It's just an unnatural shape unless you have small hands. It is a beautiful mouse but I'm replacing it with something else as it is pretty much useless to me for everyday use. It works on any surface as claimed, but results depend on the type of material. My desk is polished solid wood and I don't think the mouse likes that too much. The bottom just rough it up against the surface making the tracking even worst. Kinda like pushing a car with no gas. All the gestures and functions are quite awesome but I turn them off as they are easy to turn on by mistake. For example, to zoom you click twice on the mouse, I didn't do it but the mouse would zoom 6 or 7 times a day by itself. I guess it's too sensitive. So my only plusses are: it's nice looking, it is usable. By the way, the only reason I got this mouse is because B&H doesn't ship imacs with the trackpad. And before I forget, the battery life is really short. This is my first battery but I bought the mouse a month ago and it is down to 29%. In a nutshell, way better mouses out there by Logitech and other brands.

                                    While a super mouse it is not detailed so as to work with CAD work or pinpoint detail in photographs.
