    It's as good as any mouse but I personally prefer using the magic trackpad. If you get the mouse I highly suggest also getting the recharging station for it. A fresh pair of batteries usually only last me a week.

    Really only a week!!! It says that the batteries last a month. Can you use photoshop and Gamesald with the magic trackpad?

    It's ok. WAY to expensive. The trackpad is worse because clicking and dragging with it is a nightmare.

    A friend is letting me try the mouse. It hasn't hurt my hand yet but it is very slim

    Do you have the Apple battery charger? If so do you like it?

    The mouse is the best I have used. Good quality Batteries usually last me a month of heavy use.

    Hurt your hand? Have you fed it? It was probably hungry.
    I have a mighty Mouse and I like it except for the scrollball which clogs up with dirt, but the magic doesn't have one, am I right?

    Best ever for me. The scrolling and forward/back navigation by touch is fantastic, batteries(!!) I just have two sets of pound shop rechargeables on rotation.

    I don't currently own the charger but I'll be buying it once I finish up this fresh pack of energizers.

    All of the people that say you love the mouse. Does it hurt your hand?

    First, I was very skeptical at the move to a touch based mouse. It actually is the best mouse for any mac, but in games, well it kinda sucks. Scrolling is unintuitive in games, as things are way over sensitive. For photoshop and stuff it's great though!

    And once you've found a comfy way to grip it, it won't hurt your hand. Maybe you guys can post images of how you hold it! ;-{)

    That would be cool if people would post images on how they hold it
  • MegapixelIdeasMegapixelIdeas Posts: 476Member, PRO
    Does anyone want to share pictures of how you hold your magic mouse?

    I like both the magic mouse and the trackpad.

    Love the swiping actions to navigate - so quick and easy.

    I use rechargeable batteries in the mouse and they last for ages (weeks not days).

    My hand has never ached afterwards.

    I don't like the magic mouse I don't like the feel of the multitouch. That is just me. It doesn't hurt my hand at all. I like the trackpad better.
