My MacBook Pro arrives tomorrow and my good old trusty Logitech laptop mouse is on its last leg.

I really like the look and functionality of the wireless Mighty Mouse, but I'm wondering how well it's going to work on different surfaces, mainly a couch cushion.

80% of the time I am using my laptop I'm in the living room on this gigantic couch-like chair. My Logitech mouse has no problem because it's designed with separate buttons, but I'm concerned about how the Mighty Mouse will do on a less than solid surface since you have to press down the whole top of the mouse body to activate a click, as opposed to a traditional mouse design where you can just press down on the front or separate buttons.

Anyone have experience using their wireless Mighty Mouse on a couch, bed, chair type situation? Thanks!

I just got my wireless Mighty Mouse yesterday and I can say you wont have any problems. I've used it on a couch, on my dad's shirt, against a pillow. I just wanted to see what surfaces it could work on so far it has worked on all of them. Since were talking about the mouse, the reception I get is great. I accidentally left it on and I turned on my Macbook, which was about 30 feet away from the mouse and the mouse still worked. So everything is great about the mouse. The only downfall I have noticed so far is that the side click buttons seems to be harder to push than with the wired Mighty Mouse, but thats it.

I gave up using my Mighty Mouse and just used the trackpad on my MBP.

I found it didn't perform too - but then any mouse is nowhere near as slick as using the trackpad I've found.

Just moving the mouse through the dock, it would appear to stutter and not be a smooth flow compared to the trackpad.

But then, I've never used a mouse mat with it, so no idea what it is like on anything besides a wooden table.

I use mine on the arm of my couch all the time. I have a mini hooked up to my tv (42" LCD). The wireless mighty mouse works great.

One thing to mention too - the Wireless Mighty Mouse isn't optical like its wired brother - it is a laser mouse.

Better accuracy, more DPI etc.

I really need to get a mouse mat and start using it again. Costed me £40 aswell.
