    Have you scratched it yet and how easily would you say it scratches. I am speaking of the white and aluminum parts.

    People who bought the new iMacs do.
    I care (and I'm sure many others as well) when any product i paid a lot of money for is scratched up like a cereal box toy.

    If you are afraid of it getting scratched, don't buy/use it. They are made to be used not to be looked at.

    So far no scratches, but I have only had it for 15 minutes so I have no clue. I am hoping the top of it is fairly scratch resistant though.

    i don't understand this question.


    Are other people's palms as rough as sand paper?

    Or do you mean if you drop the mouse?

    Otherwise I don't understand how it can scratch.

    I think this is possibly OCD - if you have time (beyond the initial week long "oooh & ahhh" period) to sit gazing at your mouse, biting your nails with the worry that it may POSSIBLY get a tiny scratch on the WHITE (hence, hardly noticeable) surface, then you need to evaluate your OCD mannerisms.

    A mouse is there to perform a task - if you want it to look nice, buy two of them, polish the other one and stick it to the wall so you can admire it!.

    Failing that, surely there must be some kind of protective skin you can buy?.

    :D

    I made this thread hoping to see that other people had not had this issue. This is a gizmodo review.

    You should sell that; someone might pay a ton of money for it.

    How would you scratch it? I've never scratched a mouse in my life. I think it would be as durable as the surface on the Mighty Mouse and haven't scratched that one.

    Unless Freddy Krueger is using your Mac. Hmmmmm....Ha! Haaa! Haaaaaa! (I know lame joke. :() Hey, it's Halloween tomorrow. Getting in the spirit. :D

    Theres plenty of things that could scratch it easily...

    - Rings on fingers
    - Long or rough nails - especially when scrolling up fast
    - banging the mouse on the the side of the keyboard - that will make noticeable digs on the edge of the top shell.

    lets hope the tops not made of the same stuff the original iPod nano was from, that thing got scratched before you got it out of its box.

    lol what crap... people wouldn't be spending $69 on a mouse if the magic mouse looked like a beige bricky device. Looks are everything..

    Exactly. Also, a $69 mouse shouldn't scratch.

    The shiny plastic on my Might mouse wore as opposed to scratched. So I expect the same here.

    It doesn't matter how much you pay for it or what it's made of, the inputs remain the same. Accidents, gravity, time.

    I think you all mean OCPD (Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder), as opposed to (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).

    Meticulous and perfectionistic are not enough to warrant a diagnosis of OCD.
