Innovation doesn't always trump usability

Sep 22, 2012
Review by  
Rated a Helpful Review

Pros:Beautiful, Slim Profile, Innovative, Motions are great on Macs

Cons:Bad Right/Left click distinction, no 'middle button', takes getting used to

The Bottom Line: If you are already invested in the OSX ecosystem and value design, go for it. However, gaming is out of the question, and this is not great on usability.


The Apple Magic Mouse was gifted to me, and it was a thing to behold. Sleek, modern and elegant - truly, it was pretty magical.

 There was one slight problem. You see, I own a Windows PC that serves as my main computer (though I do have a Macbook, with which it works perfectly). There is currently no official way to get the Magic Mouse to work flawlessly with Windows - be prepared to look for specific drivers to install. I suggest googling, 'Magic Mouse with Windows drivers' since it should have all the keywords you need to get it to work.

The mouse itself, is as I've said, beautiful. The low, wide frame of the mouse may take some getting used to, but it's fine otherwise. However, the distinction between left and right clicks can be a little blurred, which is slightly annoying to deal with. The magic motions one can use are immensely useful, however, though restricted (obviously) to using a Mac. It can show Expose, swipe back and forth through pages, etc.

This definitely isn't a mouse to use for gaming. There is no 'middle button', being a flat surface, and left/right issues it has prevent any sort of accuracy to be had.

While innovative and stunning, it just really doen't go well with day-to-day practices. It takes some getting used to, and people with no patience to relearn will quicky revert to a more familiar-styled mouse.
