    Prefer battery apple mouse

    I have the original magic mouse for my Mac desk top computer, but I wanted one for my laptop since it's so much easier than using the track pad. Since the Magic mouse 2 is available, I chose that option and thought how much nicer it would be not to have to change the batteries out every 2 months. However, this magic mouse 2 is dead every time I go to use my laptop, which I only used for 15 minutes on the last charge. You HAVE to remember to turn off the mouse otherwise even though it is not in use, it will die. I use the battery version (original magic mouse) on my desktop work computer everyday for at least 8 hours and NEVER turn off my mouse. Batteries only need replacing after 2 months. So you decide what is more convenient. For me, the batteries are more reliable!

    Movement fluidity very dependent on work surface

    This was our third purchase of an Apple Magic Mouse 2. My wife's older one glides smoothly across her desk surface, no problem. My first one was great for the first few weeks, but after that, the two rails began feeling a bit "sticky" against my hard laminate desk surface. Bought another one and used exclusively on a "gamers" mouse pad, but my experience was similar to the previous mouse. These units work OK, but sometimes not ideal if you need to move the screen pointer only a tiny distance and there's resistance to that small motion within the rail-to-work surface interface. The rail material appears to be too soft, and noticeable wear patterns are visible after using a few days.

    Great mouse except you can't charge it while using

    I've used this and the previous version of the Magic Mouse. I was blown away at what it could do; however, if you are a tireless Mac Book user you MAY find the location of its charging port less than optimal. It has great battery life but, looking ahead, I "what if'd" the probability of running out juice before finishing work. I'd have to stop using it since the charging port where the Thunderbolt cable connects to it is located beneath it. You may never run in to the scenario I described and it's worth the money if you're a desktop user or will never be in a position where you'll drain its lithium battery. I used to keep spare AAs with me when I used my old Magic Mouse so I never ran out if juice. Good mouse otherwise.

    I upgraded from the old magic mouse, only because I thought that ditching the AA batteries and being able to charge via lightning cable would be more convenient. IT IS....somewhat. Apple decided to place the charging port on the bottom panel of the mouse......(face-palm motion) WHY???? Now I have to put my mouse upside down to charge? A more logical location for the port would be at the front of the mouse so that, when plugged in, it would look and function as a typical corded usb mouse. RANTING ON FURTHER....hardware and firmware decisions at Apple post Steve Jobs have been very disheartening for long-time Apple users. I guess I'm the fool for throwing money at the Apple shrine.

    I hate changing batteries. And, I hate anything outside my Apple ecosystem. Don't judge. It's just a thing. Anyways, my old Magic Mouse has been serving me well, but it was time to move on to this. I like everything about it. The click is a little different, but I think it's because it is new. It started to wear in and now feels normal after a couple weeks of use. Love that it's rechargeable and uses a lightning connector. Do not like how the charge port is underneath the mouse and not somewhere like behind it. I have been having random disconnect issues with it, and it's very very annoying, but I'm not sure if it's a mouse thing or my computers bluetooth. I have a 12" MacBook. Overall, I like it and it works nice.

    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.

    Why would you put the charging port under the mouse rendering it useless. Seriously bad design. Put it on the front so you can keep using it while charging. Besides that I like the mouse and it last alot longer than the last gen model. The one that came with my macbook pro lasted a little over a year then wouldnt take a charge. The one I purchased at bestbuy to replace it wouldnt work right out of the box. It kept jumping the cursor around. I even tested it on a different Imac with the same results. Exchanged it at bestbuy and so far this one is working. We will see how long it last.

    I purchased this to replace an old Apple mouse on an old MacBook Pro. While it worked, it was not very ergonomic, the tracking/scrolling was too slow, and the touch-scroll in the middle was difficult to use (compared to a traditional scroll wheel). As with all Apple devices, it looked good and is well-built with quality materials, but functionality was degraded to meet the design aesthetic. I ended up returning this in favor of a cheap Logitech Bluetooth mouse, and I am much happier. Overall, it was more difficult to use than the trackpad on the MacBook which made this a poor choice for me.

    The Magic Mouse 2 features finger movements similar to what you use on the Apple MacBook's Multi-Touch trackpad. It is a very innovative mouse but the reason I didn't rate it as high is because the overall feel in my hand. It feels very flat and non conforming to the palm of my hand when compared to the higher body of a conventional mouse. This makes using it feel awkward and I notice I am consonantly re-positioning my hand to get a better grip to move it around. I actually like using the built in Multi-Touch trackpad on the MacBook way better plus I think I am a lot faster using that versus the mouse.

    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.

    Tricky to get pointer in the right place

    This is my first Apple product (other than iPhone or iPad) so it's my first try with an Apple mouse to use with a MacBook Pr. I got the suggested mouse pad too. I am having issues calibrating the mouse for the speed and area covered. Seems like I have to lift the mouse and the put it back on the pad and roll it around on the pad to get the cursor on the right place. Hopefully I will be able to find the right setting and I will be able to give it 5 stars.

    Hard to control

    While I like the functions, it sometimes has a mind of its own. It will begin to slide left or right when I don't want it to, which prevents me from clicking on certain items. The standard mouse movement is very slow. I had to internally adjust up the speed to be adequate. Although you don't have to re-charge the mouse very often, the charge port is on the bottom of the mouse, so it makes it impossible to use while its being charged. As with the keyboard, its very flat, and much harder to control than a standard mouse.

    This mouse has quite a few features that I wasnt expecting. You can swipe or scroll like you would on a touchscreen and depending the application it would respond accordingly. I guess that's what makes it a "Magic" mouse. I'd only recommend this to the wealthy or a productive professional (i.e. producer, photo/video editor) as Apple applications make good use of its features, but if you just want something that clicks and points, look elsewhere

    I like the theory of this mouse, so I figured I'd give it a try. It works great, but there are two big problems. The mouse is really flat, so you can't rest your hand on it. That's a big deal when you are talking about using a computer all day long. The other flaw, is that you can't really adjust the mouse speed to fast. I bumped it to as fast as it could go, and it was like watching a snail cross my monitor screen. I'd invest in another mouse if I were you (I went back to my $10 cheap one)!

    Coming from my old roller mouse I used with my Toshiba laptop this has been a serious adjustment. It's very "touchy." I did slow and me down some which helped a lot and as I learn how to adjust it some more, and get used to using it I will be okay. But I understand why my sister who has had a Mac for some time said she got so frustrated with this mouse she pitched it and bought an inexpensive small roller mouse. She now uses and loves the track pad which is more expensive. I'm not there yet, only had this mouse three weeks.

    And I’m not talking about the ill-placed charging port. It’s the whole darn surface of This entire thing. This isn’t a mouse, it’s a curved glass trackpad mounted on the same boring aluminium Apple loves to use and a sensor. Thank God it clicks but that’s not enough tactile feedback. It’s just easier to get the Magic Trackpad and forget about this thing. A more traditional mouse is the way to go.

    The Magic Mouse 2 does the job but honestly is not very comfortable to use. Also it won't work on my glass desk without a mousepad, but most mice don't so thats no big deal. Also some of the cool gestures are very hard to do because when you do them (such as sliding left/right with two fingers to go forward/back on safari) the mouse just slides around. I don't really dislike the Magic Mouse 2, but I have basically replaced it with the magic trackpad. (Which is awesome, 5 stars for that)

    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.

    I have multiple Apple products; would rank them highly, recommend them to others and enjoy using them. However the Magic Mouse is very low/slim in design and does not feel as comfortable in the hand as other mouses. Con: have a brand new MacPro and had to buy a separate cable to charge and use the Magic Mouse. Returned it and found a Logitech wireless mouse that paired quickly with my Mac, feels & manuevers better and works great for less.

    First one did not work so had to exchange for another. Drawback is charging port is in the middle of the bottom side, so you cannot charge and use at the same time because the mouse will not lay flat. There is no green light indicator as there is for the battery operated mouse, so you cannot tell if it s connected by looking at the mouse. Purchased for when long papers have to be written and it is OK. It is bulky to carry around so just leave it at home for when having to work.
