Why is it £52? How does it differ from say, a £20 Logitech wireless mouse?



Quite a few differences to your average £30 Logitech Mouse. Bluetooth built in, no nasty dongles. Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery, not AA's. Supports multi gesture, hence the lack of buttons. Higher quality laser, 1300 DPI vs the usual 800-1000 DPI.

It looks nicer, hey it is an Apple Product after all.

Would I buy one though.....no, I own a Logitech Performance MX. Despite being a huge Apple fan I use my mouse for up to 9 hours a day and I needed a mouse that was comfortable to use for that amout of time.

For the average person, especailly Mac Users, it's a great mouse.

Brilliant!! .

I guess that's why it's called Magic mouse, now you see your money, now you don't. £52, and that's after discount, have to be a die hard Apple fan to but one of these.

Do you need special drivers to get this to work on windows.

I have an old apple mouse (with batteries) and upgraded to this this rechargeable magic mouse.

I tried to get the old one to work with windows but cant seem to get it to work

Any advice on this would be gratefully received .

Thankyou
You can use Apple's Boot Camp drivers. Download from here:

Unzip the file and run AppleWirelessMouse64.exe
This was recently 42, as was listed at 49.99 during the 20% off code. Still too expensive for what it is - i.e. a not very good mouse

Whether it is a good or bad mouse is very subjective. For my personal set of circumstances it would be a poor choice. The fly wheel on my Logitech Mouse is exactly what I need as I go through databases and spreadsheets that can sometimes be multi million rows long.

Of course if I was someone who had to use Photoshop on a daily basis the multi touch gestures on the Magic Mouse would really enable me to accomplish my task more efficiently.

You may well have used this mouse and decided it's not for you and that's fine. But I suspect that the average user, especially one who will use it on a Mac which is it's intended counterpart, will be more than happy with it.

I doubt the average user would use a mouse at £52.99 anyway.

Be honest, if you could have this or a logitech mx master for 50p less which would you choose?
Actually it's very convenient for work, i have been skeptical my self but the touch pad is amazing feature

Most people who use this mouse will get it included with their Mac.

As to whether I'd spend the money on it myself as opposed to my Logitech MX then the answer is no. As prevously stated, for my usage scenario the Logitech MX makes a lot more sense.

For my friend, who is a professional web designer, you'd have to pry the Apple Mouse from his cold dead fingers as he really benefits from the multi gesture feature.

His fingers will be dead often. It is an ergonomic nightmare.

I tried it when I owned an iMac, wasn't for me. But he uses it extensively and would not change.

Does't break the design flow, it forces people to use it as intended (wirelessly) and it takes the same amount of time to swap over AAs as it does to charge the mouse for a full day's use.
