    Magic Mouse

    Has anybody given Apple's new Magic Mouse a shot?

    If so, what are your reviews? I'm thinking about making the purchase.

    Re: Magic Mouse

    Steve Jobs only wants you to have one button.

    Why not come to the dark side and use a mouse with a nearly infinite number (well, 18) of buttons.

    The magic mouse is terrible you have to lift a finger to effectively click the mouse

    Yes they do. They exist on the mouse that she got with the purchase.

    you just have to go into preferences and enable the right click function. Works on Macbooks too.

    Re: Magic Mouse

    Since Macs are so over priced anyway, they should just include a multi-touch screen and do away with a mouse all together. I mean how much more can you improve an input device as simple as a mouse?

    It's good. I'd go for it. The scrolling alone is worth it. If it had good PC drivers I'd get another one, but the hacked up VM ones they have aren't good enough.

    Magic Mouse does it.

    Re: Magic Mouse

    I don't have a Mac, but I don't think I'd like the Magic Mouse. Too small for one, and I can't imagine the touch sensitive button thing wouldn't get annoying after a while and some unintended clicks.

    I haven't used one yet. If you get one, let me know what you think. I may get one as well.

    Re: Magic Mouse

    I'd take the word of people that have been using one for the last month over people guessing.

    Re: Magic Mouse

    Two things:
    1) ANY USB mouse will work with an Apple computer, so if you go and buy that terrible 18 button monstrosity it will work.

    2) Been using the Magic Mouse for awhile. It is nice and I like it. BUT the multi-touch stuff isn't terribly exciting yet, you can only swipe left and right. When the pinch comes and some of the other multi-touch stuff comes it will be better.

    SO, it is cool and comfortable to use but a little over priced for what it does.

    I have heard this same review a couple of times now. I'm just trying to decide if it is worth the extra green. I use a MACbook Pro.

    Re: Magic Mouse

    I like my Logitech bluetooth mouse just fine.

    Amazon.com: Logitech V470 Bluetooth Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks (White): Electronics

    It has far better reviews than the Apple bluetooth mouse. I have not had any experience with their newest magic mouse, but I'd wait for the newness to wear off and see if people actually like the thing.
