Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Apple Magic Mouse. The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 3.80 stars, and the price range is $59.99-$69.99.

Apple Magic Mouse -- with its low-profile design and seamless top shell -- is so sleek and dramatically different; it brings a whole new feel to the way you get around on your Mac. You can’t help but marvel at its smooth, button-less appearance. The Multi-Touch area covers the top surface of Magic Mouse, and the mouse itself is the button. Scroll in any direction with one finger, swipe through web pages and photos with two, and click and double-click anywhere. Inside Magic Mouse is a chip that tells it exactly what you want to do. 

Magic Mouse uses powerful laser tracking that’s far more sensitive and responsive on more surfaces than traditional optical tracking. Magic Mouse connects to your Mac via Bluetooth wireless technology, so there’s no wire or separate adapter to worry about. Pair Magic Mouse with your Mac and enjoy a reliable and secure connection up to 33 feet away. When you combine Magic Mouse with the Apple Wireless Keyboard, you create a work space free of annoying cables.

Many reviewers are not convinced with the "Magic" of this Magic Mouse from Apple. They complain about poor ergonomics and narrow design of the mouse. The battery life is not that good and the mouse needs to be turned off every time to save on the battery. 

Overall, Apple Magic Mouse is an average product from Apple. It is undeniably attractive and sleek looking but its profile and lack of buttons is not for everybody.

Frequently doesn't respond to clicks at all or mistakes a right click for a left click Accidentally right clicked instead of left clicked Strange right clicking and lack of a decent scroll wheel is disappointing
