    How bad is Magic Mouse for gaming?

    Practically unplayable with magic mouse or?

    Let's say for RTS and FPS?

    With FPS, it's unplayable. Get a cheap (20$) USB mouse and use it for gaming, that's what I do

    The main reason it's FPS is unplayable is due to the lack of what function or limitations?

    Lack of real buttons and comfortability. With normal mouse, you don't have to use force to shoot but with Magic Mouse, you have to thus it takes more time to shoot. Also, your hand can't lie on it so it's not very comfortable compared to a real gaming mouse.

    It works but it sucks. Seriously, my 20€ mouse is better at gaming that it is

    For magic mouse do you left "click" or "tap"?

    Click because the tap doesn't work always. I tried playing CoD4 online with tap and got killed all the time because the tap works poorly. Click is okay but as I said, it requires more force than a real mouse.

    For normal usage is it suppose to be tap or click? If you click will there be a clicking sound or just purely pressing it very hard?

    For normal use, I've set it to tap with BTT (works brilliantly in normal usage). If you want to click it, then there will be the clicking sound like with Mighty Mouse.

    Better Touch Tool. That's an app that makes the Magic Mouse magical, you can have various gestures.
