    I'm at the Apple store and I am thinking about getting the Apple Wireless Mouse. Should I? Has anyone had a bad experience with it. Please post.

    P.S. I am typing from a Mini. :D :D :D

    No problems at all but Fredstar on one of the other threads has problems. Buy it they're great :) What's the mini like?

    Hopefully you are talking about the Apple bluetooth wireless mouse. I've got one and I love it. I bought one for my brother and he thoroughly enjoys it as well.

    The weight and feel of it is awesome. However, it does run through batteries faster than my Apple bluetooth keyboard. Just turn it off when you aren't using it and you will be fine.

    It is very quick (and everything is stock if you can believe it). :D

    P.S. Typing on a Dual G5 2.5 GHz PM and two 30" screens! :D

    Do Apple bluetooth mice have any sort of lag compared to a wired mouse? Otherwise, no thanks.

    I hope not. Does anyone know?

    P.S. Typing from a 17" PB connected to a 23" cinema display.

    No there's no lag. None at all. Are you dancing round the store trying all the machines? :D

    The Apple BT mouse has no lag and, as mentioned, is a bit of a battery hog but not too bad. It's sole downside is that, as an Apple mouse, it has but one button, which some consider to be a plus. I'm getting one for my daughter to use while playing games as I am tired of unplugging the regular mouse and plugging in another one.

    PS If you're bored, post a pic of the Store!

    How about a smash and grab? Or would that be too risky?

    I was at the apple store in Glenndale Ca saturday afternoon, stood in line to play on the Mini, first thing I did was put my hand on top of the Mini, it was cool as a cucumber, after I played with iPhoto 5 it was still cool, nice.

    I was wondering if anybody could tell me about how many hours of use you get with the BT mouse before you need to change battery's. (assuming your not always leaving it on)

    You're in the opposite situation to me - I got my Shuffle yesterday from Regent St but they had no minis for me to play with - at least I didn't see them :(. What are you playing with now? Bought the mouse yet? The shuffle is fab but it was a gift for my g/f :)

    I'm just about to change the batteries for the third time in 9 months on my mouse. The KB is still on its original set. My computers on about 7-8 hours a day, on average.
