Apple Mighty Mouse
Advantages: Great tracking, Stylish, Fully customisable, Useful buttons
Disadvantages: Scroll button can become dirty and temporarily not function properly
The Apple Mighty Mouse is currently the latest mouse for Mac computers and is highly advanced to give you the most efficient way of using your computer. It is very stylish yet simple and blends in with the majority of Mac designs. It is simply white with a glossy effect. The mouse has the Apple logo engraved on the upper face towards the back where your palm rests.
The mouse is oval-shaped and totally symmetrical so looks pretty neat. It uses laser technology to efficiently detect movement, and can work on any surface - not necessarily a mouse mat. The good thing about this new mouse is that it can be adjusted in the Macs System Preferences to your liking. You can activate a second right-click button as well as choose what other parts of the mouse do. It's a lot more complex than it looks, which is great as it keeps a simple look but is full of great technology.
The mouse has a small grey scroll on the top towards the front. It can scroll in any direction including to either side, which is useful for wide webpages or scrolling across windows. This button can also be pushed in to access the dashboard for example where you can view the weather, use the dictionary or translator and much more. Sometimes this scroll becomes dirty and stops functioning properly. The easiest way to fix this is to get a bit rough and scroll with it in every direction reasonably hard before cleaning it with a damp cloth and this seems to do the trick after a while. Being white, dirt does tend to show up on the mouse but it is easy to clean and has no large gaps between buttons where spray can get into.
On either side of the mouse are two sensitive pads. They can literally be squeezed to access another aspect, chosen from the System Preferences. I have mine set to expose all windows when I squeeze the mouse. This makes it extremely easy to surf between windows when you have multiple applications open. You simply scroll over the chosen window and let go of squeezing the mouse and you will then be able to use that window.
The mouse I have is wired but you can get a wireless one too. From what I've heard, it is considerably heavier and requires 2 AA batteries. It is worth it to get rid of those wires but the fact it needs batteries and the way it seems excessively heavy forced me into buying the wired one. You can get the wired one for around £34 and the wireless one for £48. The laser tracking device is very sensitive and the mouse is fully customisable using the Macs System Preferences to make use of all 4 potential buttons.
The two main buttons lie to the front of the mouse like any other. They are not visibly separated but there are two different buttons on either side of the mouse. You can customise the right button to act as a right-click or something else. This mouse has great potential, looks great and works excellently with the Mac - highly recommended!
Thanks for reading
Summary: An excellent mouse which will provide ultimate efficiency when using the Mac
