    I like this mouse. I had the 1st gen as well. Both work the same. The worst part of this one is where the charging port is. It's on ge bottom so you can't charge and use at the same time. However the battery lasts a long time so you shouldn't run into this issue often. Still kinda dumb though.

    Good upgrade from the previous version...

    IMO, the mouse is the same as the previous generation. The main difference is that it is now rechargeable through a lightning cable. Yay...no more having to change out double AA batteries. The only downside to the mouse is that the lightning port to recharge the battery is at the bottom of the mouse. Therefore, you cant use the mouse while it is charging. Other than that, the mouse more is great. No other issues to report.

    Apple Mouse, Rechargeable

    I was happy to hear Apple was going to finally release a rechargeable mouse, however, to my disappointment, they put the charging port on the bottom. Why on earth would you do that? it renders it useless while recharging. Every other brand put the port on the front so you can continue to use it. Poor design decision. Otherwise, works just like the battery powered one. I would suggest looking at other options from Logitech or other.

    I purchased the Magic Mouse 2 as an upgrade over the Magic Mouse 1. I've been using the Magic Mouse since Apple came out with it and have previously used the first version and second version of the Magic Mouse 1 (the original version had an issue with battery connection that was later fixed). The Magic Mouse 2 is a great improvement over Magic Mouse 1. The charges do last more than I'd expect. My only gripe (and drop of a star) is that the charging port on the mouse is on the underside of the mouse. It makes the mouse practically unusable when charging. I usually have to charge my mouse when I'm using my computer. I've love to see Magic Mouse 3 to somehow incorporate a charging port that doesn't interrupt functionality, similar to the chargeable keyboard.

    Mouse needs an update

    I have always used a mouse in the past and felt it essential to purchase one for my new laptop. Since I have a new apple laptop I went with the AppleMouse 2. I was wrong...I didn't really need a mouse and this apple mouse is somewhat awkward in my hand. Definitely think its time for a redesign. I didn't even mention the plug in needed for recharging. Seems like this could be done better...docking port, etc. Don't misunderstand, it works fine, but is not as integrated/sleek as apple products have been in the past. This mouse days have passed.

    Too pricy for its capabilities

    MACBOOK's TRACKPAD IS WAY BETTER. It's a nice and "chic" addition to my Mac. But I don't really think it's with the $70 I paid on it. As it has become by now very notorious, the charger port is located on a very awkward place (on the BOTTOM of the mouse). So you will not be able to charge and use it. @@@@@@@@ even though it'll probably need charging once every 4-5 months). I have also experience some paring issues with my Mac. BUY IT ONLY IF YOU'LL BE USING IT WITH A DESKTOP.

    Magical mouse

    I just knew I needed to replace the dead Magic Mouse I that I had. So I went out & got this Magic Mouse II. Kind of shocking to realize that it needed to be charged before I could use it. That was minority annoying, so is the fact that Apple put the charging port smack cabin the middle of the bottom of the mouse, so that it can't be used while charging! I would expect the port to be at the front tip, so that the mouse charges, but looks like a wired remote, and can still be used. Don't get me wrong, I love my Apple products, but sometimes their design choices make me scratch my head. Seriously... still, I'm really happy with this mouse otherwise. it doesn't need charging all that often, so it's not as big of a deal as I was afraid of.

    Nice but overpriced

    When I bought my first Mac a few weeks ago, I had originally decided to give the trackpad a fair try so I only bought an eternal CD Drive. But after 3 days I couldn't take it anymore. As nice as the new Trackpad is, I guess I am a mouse person because I just couldn't get it to do what I wanted. Since MacBooks only come with 2 USB ports and I have a history or wearing out USB ports because I remove and insert mice and other peripherals so often I decided that a bluetooth mouse was needed. Ive had a bad experience with the battery life on Microsoft Bluetooth mice in the past so I decided to get the Apple one. The mouse itself works well once you get used to the fact that the whole top is one large button and there is no wheel (the top has trackpad sensitivity). The only negatives are the size, which make it portable but awkward to hold onto (it's too thin), and the fact that they put the Lightening port for charging on the bottom so you can't charge it and use it at the same time. Fortunately it seems to have great battery life.

    There some that complain about the lightening charging port being not he bottom of the mouse and thus making it so that you can't charge and use the mouse at the same time. I don't see this as an issue at all. I mean, the battery last so long anyway, is this really an inconvenience? I'd say no. As far the construction, I think it's considerably better than the first magic mouse. The click is much solid and precise. The first version seem a but "mushy" even when new. Is it a little pricey for a mouse, yes but it's Apple and what do you expect.

    Perfect Mac Mouse

    I was hesitant to purchase this mouse due to the price. After trying various non apple bands and being very frustrated I bought this mouse. It is very simple to connect. No extra wires or peripherals. The battery lasts very long. I use my computer and mouse daily for work and I charge it occasionally, maybe every two weeks. I don't think that it has ever run below 70% power. I just plug it in at night. I read complaints about the port being on the bottom, just rest the mouse on its side, not a problem. I would highly recommend it

    Only get it if you really like Apple design

    From an aesthetic design standpoint, it looks great. It works well with Apple computers due to the fact you can use the multitouch gestures. That alone makes the mouse worth using if you have a Mac. Otherwise, this mouse loses points on the ergonomic design because it's so flat and doesn't really cradle your palm very well. In addition, the lightning charging port is on the bottom of the device which is a poor design decision if you ask me. What if you need to charge it while in the middle of doing some work? You have to stop you workflow. I bought this mouse as a gift for someone. There's no way I'd use this mouse for myself. It's not comfortable and there are design flaws that make this mouse from being usable on a daily basis.

    I loved the first version of the Magic Mouse (the non rechargeable version) and love this rechargeable one even more. Unlike a traditional mouse with a scroll wheel or ball, the top three-fourths of the Magic Mouse 2 is almost like a trackpad for you to scroll horizontally, diagonally and vertically. It responds to taps as well as clicks. You can program the Magic Mouse 2 to do right and left clicking (secondary click) and also two finger swipe to switch between full-screen apps. Double tap with one finger (not click) to zoom in on a specific area of a webpage or double tap with two finger to open Mission Control. Go forward or back to webpages with a swipe of a finger. All these setting are configurable through the Mouse settings in System Preferences. A convenient power switch is located underneath. To pair the Magic Mouse 2 to your Mac, simply plug in the lightning cable to the mouse and the other end to the USB port on your Mac. Once paired, unplug the lightning cable. Due to its low slim design it may not be comfortable for some as it doesn't have that arch/palm support like some bigger shaped mouse. The only gripe about the Magic Mouse 2 is the placement of the lighting port for charging. You cannot simultaneously charge and use the Magic Mouse 2 as you have to plug in the lightning cable 90o under the mouse. This means you need to have it on its side while it's charging. One should utilize the battery % indicator in the bluetooth menu on the top bar so you know when to recharge it beforehand. This will ensure you're not stuck with a dead mouse.

    Much Better than the Reviews

    I recently had a need for a new mouse -- b/c my existing bluetooth mouse was starting to "skip" and not hold selected copy in Word or cells in Excel. It was a Logitech specifically for a Mac. I wanted another, but Logitech just didn't have the same one... close, but not the same. I wanted to stay with a bluetooth mouse for my Mac -- so started to read reviews. The Magic Mouse reviews were spotty. So I purchased a low-end Bluetooth mouse for Win and Mac i.e. under $20 -- and it wasn't very good. It worked out of the box -- but it just wouldn't consistently connect. So I returned it and bit the bullet and got the Mac Mouse to try. Yes -- it's slim as many complaints state... and the charging port is on the bottom. But so far -- after a full charge -- and after 12 hour days of use -- it's only down to 89% (at least a week after charging it). No question it takes some getting used to -- but it works as advertised with Macs. And as with Apple products, it's well made. It can be a little sensitive with left and right swipes -- but you adjust to it. So I'm glad I got it ... and if you like using a mouse with a Mac -- I'd say it's worth the extra $'s to get it.

    Huge disappointment

    I bought this mouse to go with my brand new high spec MacBook Pro. I'm not a touchpad guy, even though the MBP has the best touchpad in the laptop world. I thought this would be a great complimentary Apple product for my new mac. However, I was wrong! The mouse doesn't fit very well in my hands, and as a result is a pain to use on a daily basis. I thought I'd get used to it but that was not the case. To make matters worse, the battery needs to be charge often, and the charging port is awkwardly placed on the bottom. You cannot use the mouse while it's charging! The touch scrolling feature doesn't work too great either. The only pros about this mouse are the looks (looks amazing, but is not very functional), uses a lighting cable that most people who use Apple products already have for charging (except the poor placement of the charging port negates this pro), and it pairs seemlessly and easily with my MacBook Pro via Bluetooth, keeping my USB ports free. I don't recommend this mouse. It is way too expensive for it to not have any practicality nor any reasonable usability. Honestly I don't know why Apple even made this mouse or how they're still managing to keep it in stores. I've used Logitech and Microsoft mice in the past and they can do a MUCH better job than this mouse can. I've been using a wireless USB Logitech mouse with my previous MacBook Pro and it worked wonderfully. I now use a Microsoft Bluetooth mouse (gasp! @@@@@@@ that does an even better job.

    I read reviews from this board, apple's, all over. Everyone complaining about where you plug in the wire to charge this mouse. YES, it's a bit awkward at first. You literally plug in, perpendicular to the bottom of the unit. This causes the unit to not lay flat while charging. "I can't use my mouse while charging!" Ummm, you're not supposed to use anything while it's charging, period... get over it. "There are other mice that allow you to use it while charging... and they're $40 cheaper!" OMG go buy one, quick. I'll stick with my magic mouse. My mouse kinda props up like a picture frame on a desk displaying it's beautiful elegance while it charges it's super long lasting battery. Do I care I can't use the mouse for the couple hours while it charges? No. The mouse is not supposed to be the best mouse on the market... while it's charging. How does it perform while it's on, being used? It's perfect. Smooth, perfect tracking,. Clicks are "ergonomically correct". Have been using it for a couple of months and have never lost connection once. I use it for 10-12 hours daily. What do I do while it's charging? Sleep, eat, play with my son, read a good book, take a walk, exercise.... not in that order. I can survive with Apple's odd decision to put the port on the bottom of the unit.
