    Anyone else have this issue?

    I noticed that the magic mouse when in use sometimes lags a lil when the cursor moves.

    Is this a known issue? I've updated and everything already.

    Mine lagged as well and also the Tracking on it was slow. I got MouseZoom and it solved my problems as for tracking and even the lag behind it.

    Yea for some reason the tracking would kind of jump once in a while or slow down/skip.

    I just went with my wired logitech mouse and all is good again.

    I hope you've learnt your lesson. Never trust wireless to a dependent degree.

    Whats weird is that the magic mouse worked just fine with my 17" uMBP. It was smooth as butter, its a shame that it wont work so well with the 13".. I wonder why though.

    Maybe the batteries are running out?

    The battery life is still showing 77%.

    That is a common "feature" of BT mice. I've had other BT (logitech) in the past and yes they exhibited the similar symptoms. I received a magic mouse for a present, from my wife so I use it but when I need precision, such as when I'm in PS or Aperture I switch back to my wired mouse.

    As for battery life, I changed batteries back in January and I've only used 33% and I typically keep the mouse on all of the time.
