I have worked with the Apple Magic Mouse both at work and at home and I am very satisfied.The Magic Mouse is versatile, innovative, and efficient in every way. At $69.00 a pop, it is a bit costly, but I still believe it is worth your money.
Left/Right Click: This was the area of the Magic Mouse that took me the longest to get used to. Normally with a mouse you are able to rest your fingers on the left and right click button without any problems. You can left click and right click with ease. With the magic mouse, the only way you can really right click is to lift your left finger so that the only finger on top of the mouse is your right one. This took me FOREVER to get used to and when I use other mouses it throws me off yet again. With that being said, when you finally get it down, this is a great way to use a mouse. It requires less clicking and your fingers actually don't get tired as easily.
Scrolling: Scrolling is quick and easy with the magic mouse. To scroll you simply slide your fingers instead of using the bar on the right of your window or a little trackball in the middle of the mouse. This makes scrolling quick and easy. I find it very efficient compared to any other mouse I have ever used.
Accuracy of Motion: I have found that the Magic Mouse is extremely precise and accurate in portraying my movements. In fact, it does this moreso than any other mouse I have used. Once I grew accustomed to the movements of the mouse I was able to move very quickly which sped up my work tremendously. One thing I would suggest is that you make sure you are consistent with the surface on which you place your mouse. As you move from surface to surface the movement tends to change a bit which means you have to acclamate to it.
Battery: This is the area that Magic Mouse really gets frustrating.Two AA batteries are required which isn't so bad considering they are the most common form of battery. However, It is extremely easy to forget to turn off your Magic Mouse and when this happens your battery drains quickly. Apple offers a product that you can purchase which allows you to easily charge your mouse when you aren't using it. I highly suggest it unless you don't mind getting new batteries periodically.
Durability: I was pleasently surprised with the durability of the Magic Mouse. One of the ones we use at work has been dropped numerous times and it has held up quite nicely. I take better care of mine at home so it shows absolutely no signs of wear and tear.
This mouse is great for ANY computer use whether it be home, business, or gaming. Gamers have no fear, the precision of the Magic Mouse allows you to be as accurate and efficient as possible. I highly suggest this to anyone who uses their computer often and needs to get work done quickly and efficiently
