Apple Magic Mouse
Advantages: WELL BUILT, RELIABLE, GREAT FUNCTIONALITY
I love Apple, however this doesn't automatically make me believe that the sun shines out of the rear end of ALL of there products. I have a Macbook and I wanted to plug it into my TV so I invested in a bluetooth wireless mouse and keyboard. I chose the Magic Mouse because of it's looks and its multitouch functionality. I paid £59 for it form the Apple store, but i'm sure it's available cheaper in other places.
The Magic Mouse feels great in your hand, and with it's laser sensor it is very precise and accurate as long as you have an opaque surface, it gets a bit confused with glass topped desks etc, however it is quite happy on your lap, wall or whatever other strange place you decide. The top is the same as a simple trackpad in that it understands two fingered gestures such as scrolling, zooming (pinch) and spinning of pics. All of these gestures are easy to learn. It does take a while to get used to but once you do it is a very pleasing mouse to use. As soon as i got it out of the box and turnded it on the mac recognised it and connected, in less than 10 seconds!
It feels very well built, there is no creaking due to loose panels like I have experienced in almost all of my other, non-Apple mice. It is made of a combination of aluminium plastic and glass (the top)...but don't worry, it is solid stuff, due to the nature of how I use it it has spent a lot of time on the floor and there is not even a scratch. The battery life is great and it runs on only one battery. I have had it for over 3 months now and there have been no structural or technical problems
This is a great mouse, as you would expect from a great company. It is well built, looks great and it's brilliant to use. This is expensive but for me, well worth the money.
**R.I.P. STEVE JOBS!***
