Well, let you know when they ship, Apple has yet to start Shipping the Mouse out, I have it on order and it say's i should receive it by the 28th of October.Obviously Apple has released the new magic mouse with scroll and such, but I have heard some complaints about it being uncomfortable to use some of these features. Basically my question is, "Is it worth the purchase."
they are obsessed with no button clean cool looking above performance. this mouse is almost a trackpad. it could be move comfortable and still not have buttons. most good mice are not so flat wonder why apple? you can only go away from a proven design so far. but there were be people that think it is the greatest thing ever even while their hand cramps.Echoing previous comments. I went down there to exchange a different mouse I'd bought and decided to try out the Magic Mouse while I was there. The low profile really kills it, it's absolutely impossible to hold onto comfortably. The plastic is also very slippery and the edges are very sharp.
The kinetic scrolling is very cool, though. However, I think you sacrifice some accuracy for it. Apple is really just too obsessed with the no-button philosophy, it's a bit embarrassing.
I ended up grabbing a Logitech V470 instead.
From the few minutes I played with it in the Apple Store, I quite liked it, and it worked quite well.
My main beef with it right now is the lack of customization - I would rather the two-finger swipes invoke expose or spaces, instead of going back/forward. Hopefully 10.6.2 will come with more customization.
+1 to bothFrom the 10 minutes I used it in the store I actually really liked the mouse. It took a few minutes getting used to and since the desks are low and you are standing I had to really crouch down so I was at the same level like I would be at a desk. After awhile I really like the feel of it and think I will have to pick one up when they are out next week.
I'm currently an MXR user and I may defect (see my previous post). Of course, the MXR has more buttons than might be possible to create gestures on the Magic Mouse so YMMV; aside from the right and left clicks, I only use the scroll, Expose and Dashboard buttons (the latter two are on the sidescroll wheel for me).If Logitech could put a multi-touch into a MX Revolution....
Now that would rock my wrist.
I am interested in MX Defectors - if the Magic is good enough to draw away MXR folk - I may take a dip myself.
Awesome!!! You can return it?!?! I bought it from the HK store and a few days later I found this thread. ... It's still cool though.I ordered two to try out and if i really don't like them I shall return them and go back to the MM, unlike many I quite like the MM as the two I have work well with no scoll ball issues.
In Hong Kong the online store is stating shipping within 5-7 days
Meh. My Kensington mouse made my arm hurt a bit. Hate it and love it at the same time.the low profile just kills it.
if you want arthritis, buy this mouse!
