Terrible design. It's flat, uncomfortable and the glossy surface makes swiping feel weird, but the absolute worst thing about it, and advertisement for design over substance is the stupid placement of the charging port on the belly of the mouse which means it cannot be used if charging. Whoever gave the green light for this design is an idiot.
Probably the worst mouse I've ever used.
I love it actually. So easy to use, the gestures feel natural and very user-friendly, scrolling pages is a pleasure, and it fits nicely in my hand. Best mouse I used.
I can live with the charging port being on the bottom, as I regularly check the charge status and if it drops low I simply plug it in overnight and it's ready to use in the morning. No issues there! But yes, must admit it was a peculiar choice in design.
Great Find, I love this product

Poor product and so so reviews.

Very difficult to replace battery.
Scored 2/10 on ease of repair.Not worth it -I should know -I own one.

Magic Mouse? Will it read my Taurus cards?

So what do you use now on your iMac?
They provided us with these in work, it doesn't even have a middle-click option unless you install third-party software, and even then it only works half the time, absolutely useless mouse.
As you can tell from the comments this is a very love-hate product, I'm personally in the former camp and the Magic Mouse is my mouse of choice whenever I go through a Mac phase. But then again I'm a masochist who will happily use the similarly flat Surface Mobile Mouse seven days a week for work which most people on this site seem to hate, so your mileage my vary.

With that said, the placement of the Lightning Port is idiotic.

It’s rechargeable


Battery life reduces over time.

Would probably not be an issue for quite a while though.

Same here, my workplace purchased one for me and I absolutely hated it. I asked them to replace it with the Magic Trackpad which unfortunately was delivered to the office the Friday before lockdown so I haven't had a chance to use it. In the meantime I'm using my personal MX Master 2S, now that's a good mouse that deserves all the praise it gets.
I've got the original non rechargeable one, though used rechargeables in it, and thought it was an excellent mouse, favourite was the Mighty Mouse though, you just have to love a more that has a speaker to make scrolling ratchet sounds.

Moved over to a Logitech MX Master now though and no desire to go back.

The master is what I use for work mostly. It's the most comfortable mouse I've ever used.
Super comfy and solid build quality.
I’ve got a first gen version.
I got it for free - with my 27” iMac, in 2010.....and it’s still going strong.
(albeit with replaceable rechargeable AA batteries)
But 9.5 years without missing a beat is very good in my book!
Great mice - had Gen 1 back in the day, but replacing the batteries was a chore.

This version is considerable improvement. But the charging port (Lightning) is underneath in the dumbest place, and so the mouse can’t be used while charging. Not that that is a problem if practice, because it needs charging so infrequently that I just set it to do it overnight.

I also had the Gen 1 trackpad, and have the new version of that as well. The new trackpad is a much bigger leap forward than the mouse is. The new trackpad is a much more sophisticated bit of kit than the mouse, but is priced comparatively higher.

I didn’t like the trackpad at first, but adapted to it quite quickly for general tasks. If I were to pick between the two I’d probably go for the trackpad, but the mouse is better if you carry out very specific tasks needing greater precision and control over movement

The touch gestures are good on this mouse.

The space grey versions come with black lightning to USB-A cables, which can’t be bought separately. They are pretty cool looking! One thing that annoyed me is they still supply USB-A rather than USB-C in the box!

I imagine we will see a new version at some point with USB-C charging.
The charging point is dumb but the mouse itself is pretty clever. I wouldn’t be without it in the Affinity apps, for instance, especially Publisher. The ability to swipe around the document with just a light touch on the top of the mouse is brilliant, far better than a wheel.
Personally (as a long time apple user) I hate these but heat for the price.

Here’s a good mouse roundup I saw the other day: arstechnica.com/gad…ng/

I use a Logitech G305 myself, good for desktop mousing and has a useful DPI switch on the top for design or playing 2011s finest games on my mac

Also a long time Apple user.

the mice are a rip off. Including this price.
I have a mac, yet wouldn't touch their mouse or KB. Cheap taky junk, only for the fanboyz.
Love these mouses, and the space grey looks slick but that charging port is sooooo frustrating.
How is a £65 mouse a good deal??! Have people gone crazy...

I have the original wireless one which takes 2 x AA batteries. Works great. Non-replaceable rechargeable batteries make my blood boil.

With regards to the charging port I think it was a very deliberate design by Apple, they put it there not only for aesthetic reasons (to keep the mouse looking very clean and minimal) but also because they specifically didn't want you to be able to use it with a wire trailing out of it. It's not really a problem though to be honest, the battery life on the mouse is fantastic and if it starts to run very low you just flip your mouse over, plug it in, go get yourself a cup of tea, and when you come back five minutes later it will have built up enough charge to give you several hours more use.

Try that when you are in the middle of a demo on team viewer
Best mouse on the market, Apple is king
Ergonomically speaking this mouse is horrific.
£65 for a mouse is very much not a hot ‘deal’
Not a good deal really

Depends on the mouse. I've only paid less for one mouse I think.
I’m a huge Apple fanboy and this is the worst mouse I’ve ever used. Avoid!
Get a proper mouse this one is crap just look sleek
