Apple Mighty Mouse
Advantages: Perfect precision, multiple functions, slim sleek slick design, the list goes on
Having been a windows user all of my child and adult life you can imagine how hard it was for me to then start using a Mac with it's completely different layout and different sets of tricks to learn and find out about.
With every computer requiring a mouse in one form or the other, but even though you can get track pad's and some with a tracking ball built into some keyboards it's still easier to use an external mouse for absolute control.
The options of mouse's you can get this day and age is huge, but the good thing is any type of mouse, which is usb-powered works for both Windows and Mac.
Apple's basic mouse is a very simple but effective navigation tool, navigating around your Mac with the ease and comfort that any of the top mouse's would have.
This all white slim line sleekness fits very well in your hand, it's not quite molded to your hand but it isn't as cumbersome as most of the basic Window Mouse's.
The Apple "Mighty" Mouse slips into your Mac or windows with a usb cable, measuring at 4.5inches length, 2.5inches width, (just under) 1.5inches depth. When you first see it, it has a brilliant shine of white which never goes, even when you have had it for a few years it never loses it's shine.
Has 4 functions on this little mighty mouse, now because I was a windows user for such a long time I'm very use to there being a function for both the left and right click of the mouse.
There are two (white) buttons on either side of the mouse and the function of these two buttons when pushed together turns the screen darker and whatever windows you have open pulls them back so you can see them on a smaller scale so you can choose between the windows, once clicked on the preferred window the light comes back to normal resolution and the window comes back to normal size, on the top towards the front of the mouse is a tiny scroll wheel that looks like a tiny tracking ball instead and the function is as it sounds, it scrolls up and down the page, but if you push down on the wheel the screen goes dark again and gives you other accessory programs (mine are, calculator, weather forecast, clock, dictionary, calendar, Christmas day countdown) but you can change it to your preference of what you want.
Even though when you press on the top of the mouse the whole unit clicks down together, again you can customize it in the computers settings so when you press the front left click is just the same as the windows left click which is to move the cursor or highlight and the front right click brings up options as it would do on Windows (paste cut copy...etc), just don't be confused when you click down on either the left or the right you feel the whole thing moves down. So basically this little mouse that looks so insignificant has 5 functions, you would never think it would you.
Unlike most optical-tracking sensor it works on most work tops, I personally think you don't need a special mat like most of the Window mouse need for precision, this is strong enough on it's own, if you lift the mouse slightly of the table you will see the power of the red light shinning down on to the table.
You can buy this powerhouse of a mouse from Amazon for £38.18, it is a little pricey but at least you have a peace of mind that you know this is a worthwhile purchase.
