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:

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.
