Review: Apple Magic Mouse

 

Apple mashes together a multitouch trackpad and a regular mouse, and the result is surprisingly useful.

Smooth, comfortable form factor. Multitouch gestures streamline goofing off on the web. Buttonless design bids farewell to the Mighty Mouse’s dirt-loving trackball

Lack of Exposé and Spaces support will force your hand to the keyboard more often

Apple Magic Mouse

 

Apple's innovative Magic Mouse is undeniably attractive, but its compact, buttonless design isn't for everyone.

First-ever Multi-Touch–capable mouse. Stunning, minimalist design. Configurable. Ambidextrous.

Multi-Touch features work with Macs only. Mouse isn't large enough to fill the natural curve of your hand. ; Watch our Apple Magic Mouse video review!

Apple Magic Mouse review

 

Apple's latest pointer, the Magic Mouse, is included with its new iMac desktops , but you can purchase it separately for $69. Just don't confuse it with the Mighty Mouse , because although they're the same price, the differences end there. The Magic...

Sexy design; vertical scrolling works like a physical scroll wheel; pairs easily with Mac computers; ambidextrous.

Awkwardly narrow profile; doesn't work with Windows PCs; laser sensor not as advanced as Darkfield and BlueTrack competition; horizontal swipes don't feel as natural as thumb buttons; can't customize swiping functions; no pinching.

Apple's new wireless Magic Mouse gets a sleek makeover and even has multitouch controls, but it's better as a portable laptop companion rather than a full-size desktop accessory. The swiping gestures add interactivity to Web browsing and media, but the...

Apple Mighty Mouse

 

Usually ahead of the curve, Apple has belatedly released a multibutton mouse.

Usually ahead of the curve, Apple has belatedly released a multibutton mouse. The optical Apple Mighty Mouse can be customized for different users and has two invisible touch-sensitive buttons on top, force-sensing buttons on the sides, and a teensy...

Apple Magic Mouse Review

 

The trackball is replaced by a gesture sensing surface which is whats magical about this mouse.

Priced at AED 379 (US$100), the Magic Mouse is a tad bit on the expensive side but there really isn’t anything like it in the market. You’ll very easily get used to its swipes.

Apple Magic Mouse Review and Ratings

 

Apple addicts who appreciate design and minimalism, as well as multi-touch functionality, will find the Magic Mouse a must-have. Those used to a chunkier, more traditional pointer, however, will have a hard time adjusting.

Innovative multi-touch technology ; Dynamic design ; Easy to connect to Mac computers

Learning curve necessary ; Doesn't work with Windows PCs ; No pinching and pulling to adjust zoom
