Early last year when I created my first Hack, I got the Apple wired keyboard and USB mouse. I was not about to try to get the wireless versions working with a Hack. Later last year the wife and I both got rMBPs and dumped the Win7 desktops. Yea!!!

Well today Santa's sleigh (the Brown truck) delivered a pair magic mice and a recharger with 6 sets of rechargeable batteries. The USB mice are now nicely stored away in the closet.

Egad, what a difference!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :eek:

I know, some of us are slow on the uptake. But better late than never. ;)

Besides having to replace the batteries every now and then, I'm very happy with my Magic TrackPad and Magic Mouse! Glad you like yours as well.

I have both Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad paired to my Mac Pro. I mostly use the mouse but trackpad is handy for some applications or when the mouse battery has died. They are both great.

I also use an app called MagicPrefs to add extra functionality to both devices.

I don't like the shape of the Magic Mouse. The ergonomics are terrible. But the scrolling and swiping capabilities are awesome.

I love using the trackpad with iPhoto!

But most of the time I use my trusty Razer I wish they would change the name though, it's hard to be taken seriously when I recommend it to non-gamers!

I loved using my magic mouse - but agree with the post above. It wasn't very good when gaming. I think it was the right click that got to me.
