Review Summary

This ultra-efficient architecture was designed to use less power with up to 9 - 12 hours battery life (depending on the model and configuration) and still deliver high performance, which means you can do whatever you want for longer hours.

Review Summary

The brilliant 4-inch Retina display is tall but not wide, and features an advanced finger-friendly Multi-Touch technology built into the glass instead of beneath it which gives complete one hand control. A 5 megapixel iSight camera (available only in 32 GB & 64 GB versions) is made from sapphire crystal making the surface of the lens more resistant to scratches. Advanced optics, tap to focus, an LED flash, and face detection helps in getting a better shot every time.

The front camera can be used for taking self-portraits or recording 720p HD videos. Use the Panorama feature to create a perfect wide shot with the tap of a button.

Review Summary

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.
