My mousepad is pretty worn out, but I'm sure there are some good options to replace it that would be good for the magic mouse.

Thanks!

Cheap one that came with my first HP computer. Works great surprisingly.
My current pad is just a bit too soft and the magic mouse doesnt slide very well and the cursor doesnt move well, either. :p

I'm just looking for the best option for the magic mouse so it just slides better since I would prefer to just keep my mouse on the table, but I don't really want a bunch marks all over my desk. haha


I'm looking at these 2 from OWC if anyone have used these?

Anyone know any reasoning to have the wide mousepad? I've always had square ones in my whole life, but maybe theres a reason for it?

I don't use one at all since its a laser mouse and works great on any surface.

That second one looks really nice, to me. The glass surface would definitely be helpful that I'd assume. Its always annoying while using photoshop and it jacks up. :p

Do you have one from them?

Wow, thats a huge mousepad and ~$50 with shipping in the US.

Going on 16 years now, its as durable as its timeless namesake...

The image didn't show, but from the link, I an imagine its a Duke3D? :p

True, I may have mentioned the same; but my mouse kept jacking up the desk, but I eventually wore out my pad. :)

I personally don't have one. My friend does and swears by it. I've used it a few times for a semi extended period of time and they are really comfortable to use. Any mouse slides across it pretty well but the Magic Mouse works really well.

I'll be picking one up when I buy my Mac Mini this summer for iOS programming

I have an Apple one that I bought in the company store in Cupertino. Works great. I'll try and post a pic later if I remember.

3M has a "mousing surface" available on Amazon and other places. It's not a pad, but rather a flat surface with a reusable adhesive. Supposedly, the surface is optimized for best battery life. I haven't done any quantitative measuring, but it certainly seems like there has been a longer time between recharges than there was with no pad.

My old MM worked beautifully on my old bed comforter...bought a new down one and they just don't work well together. A bit disappointing. :( Have tried several different mousepads and I guess the fluffy down comforter just doesn't suit them as they lose their shape.

Besides tossing my new comforter what else would you suggest? I guess I need some sort of surface to use instead of a mousepad.
