    I really, REALLY need the Magic mouse - is it available in the physical, bricks and mortar Apple stores yet?. My local Apple store (Leicester, UK) said call back tomorrow as they're expecting new Mac stock... but does that include the Magic mouse?.

    If anyone has bought one, I'd be pleased to hear from you/them.

    Thanks

    According to Apple's press release, they will be available at the end of the month.

    :confused: So... the iMac (which includes the Magic mouse) ships between 1-3 days... but the mouse is not available?. It says ships between 5-7 days for the mouse alone, also...

    Makes sense. Not.

    It makes perfect sense. The first batch of new mice went into the iMacs. Would you have sold them as stand alones before including them on your kick ass new computers?

    You're talking complete nonsense - "first batch" my _rse - Apple are KNOWN for making sure stock is available - your "first batch" theory makes no sense. So, if they were still un-made, why does the site say 5-7 days, hmm?. They're making electronics, not perishable fruit pies!!.

    They ARE in stock, just being held back - why on EARTH would there be a shortage, when Apple control the manufacturing process?. I don't think you have thought this through properly. Do you SERIOUSLY think that they've UNDER-produced something as revolutionary and desirable as this?. Give me a break.

    Errrr... I'm hoping you forgot the /s tag....

    Probably were manufacturing issues and they had to make sure they got the new iMac boxes filled first. Happens all the time with new Apple products. This isn't exactly a unsurprising.

    I've just been to the Kingston Apple Store in London and they don't have any. They said they might have them in later today but can't be sure. I reckon it'll be available next week at the earliest.

    Oh joy for you, having to venture out to that chav-invested dump - haha!. I used to go to the Bentall centre weekly... UGH!!!.

    Back on-topic - Apple store Leicester have confirmed they *should* be in stock by NEXT week.

    Whatever you do don't order it online. Everytime a new product has come out and I've ordered it online it's shown up in the store before my order ships. With my 24" ACD it was on the same day.

    First, don't take too much stock in the "5-7 days" date for the mouse: if they have them available, they very well may ship them sooner. I've had that happen to me before when ordering from the online Apple Store.

    Second, the poster you just freaked out at actually as a valid point; while they make their best guesses and try to have enough, they can only produce a finite amount of mice--I'm sure they want to get them in to the iMacs first (since they come with them). If all goes well, like I said, I wouldn't be surprised if your mouse shipped "early" when you order standalone.

    Talked to 5 Apple stores in Texas today. This morning 4 said "I don't know when we'll get em," and one said (very confidently at that), "We should be getting them later today, call back at 2 PM and find out for sure." I called all of them back 8 hours later, and all of them said no luck, and the store that told me to call back at 2 (albeit a different employee this time) said "Try early next week at best."

    I really wish they would have had these available.

    I tried calling the Lynnwood, WA one tonight and they said they didn't have any in stock. I asked if he knew when and he just said that they don't know until they open the box. I figure most stores get shipments on tuesdays and thursday, at least their main shipments, so I'll be calling back tomorrow. I tired searching twitter and it doesn't sound like anyone has one yet.

    I went to the Apple store and they said the magic mouse will be out by the end of the week. It's because of a firmware update for older macs to recognize and edit options on the mouse like what certain buttons do. The new iMacs come with the firmware already loaded.

    Also fed up with waiting on the phone. I was calling again as when I did get through yesterday the chap on the phone told me two weeks at the earliest. And this after I had been into a reseller in Derby(!?) on Sunday who told me he was getting them in two days. He even had one in stock to play with...

    They can be so annoying. Why not just give us a date so we can shut up about it?
