I just bought a Magic Mouse and Acer monitor for my Mac mini.

I was using a 1080p television with my mini and the picture was so-so. This new Acer monitor, however, provides a much better picture. I guess a monitor really is much better than a television.

I was using a generic USB mouse with my mini, but the Apple Magic Mouse is so much better. I'm loving the gestures it provides and the scrolling is so much smoother. It's hard to believe they can do all of this with a mouse.

Next up is a magic keyboard, but that will have to wait until next month. I was under the impression that Apple made a magic keyboard with backlit keys, but the folks at Best Buy haven't heard of such a thing from Apple. Is Apple working on this?

The Magic Keyboard DOES NOT have backlit keys. That alone was my biggest issue moving from rMBP to a 27" iMac - especially when using it at night.

I think I may have confused the apple magic keyboard with the macbook keyboards.
