Advantages: Sleek & stylish design, multiple functions.
Disadvantages: Batteries run out quickly, higher price tag.
As with all Apple products before even using it you straight away can see the sleek and stylish design of the mouse.
It's a wireless mouse and takes 2 AA batteries I definitely recommend purchasing rechargeable batteries because especially with cheaper disposable batteries you could see yourself going through them every 1-2 months.
As far as the range of the wireless I haven't tried to take it a great distance away from the computer but I have used it from one end of the room to another with an iMac (about 3 metres) and I found that there was absolutely no loss in the signal strength and it still worked without any issues.
The standout feature of the mouse which sets it apart from other wireless mouses on the market is the touch sensitivity across the entire mouse this means that you can slide your finger up and down the mouse to scroll through web pages or you can do a 2 finger swipe left or right and that would bring you forwards and backwards through web pages.
The mouse also has one click function like on the older Apple mouse this again differs from the normal left and right click functions on a mouse for me I much prefer this as it gives the freedom of being able to click anywhere across the mouse and right clicking is as simple as holding down the click or holding ctrl on your keyboard. If you still prefer to have left and right click you can go into the computers settings and change this to regular settings.
The mouse is expensive and there are more affordable ones on the market but it definitely has the edge in regards to style and functionality.
