nothing but hot

would'nt dream of paying £50 for a mouse

I would pay £50 for a mouse, just not this one, it really isn't particularly ergonomic. Everyone is different though, and it's the cheapest you will get one, so hot from me.

Have one of these and it is so useful to scroll through documents (esp if you're used to using a macbook). Plus is bluetooth and the signal is a lot stronger than the Dell BT mouse I used to use.

Would be cheaper to get this from apple store if you are eligible for higher education discount - you get 3% quidco on here too.

definitely form over function if you ask me. its far to flat to be used every day, but its about as cheap as they come so wont vote either way

It does take getting used to but after half hour its fine.

I move it with my thumb and ring finger. THink it's flat to give index and middle finger space to scroll, zoom, go back and forth in web browsers etc. Any higher and it would be difficult to scroll using whole of mouse body making it the same as using a scroll wheel mouse.

I'm sticking with my trusty trackball+Graphics tablet, I borrowed one for a couple of days and just couldn't get used to it. Set in my ways I guess:oops:

Is the magic bit that it makes breakfast in bed for you?

£50 for a basic mouse in a fancy shell... While you keep paying it, Apple will keep getting away with it!

Dude, dude, DUDE....mac fanboys will not stand for such talk, the fragile creatures. I, on the other hand, think you speak much sense.

I don't care if this mouse gives you erotic messages, with suction features, but in this day and age, a frickin mouse costing £50+ is not just ridiculous, it is the height of human idiocy. Personal opinion. Hoping macboys do not take this as an insult to their "intelligence" as afterall, this is JUST a mouse, and disliking it is in no way denying their lives meaning.

Are those who spend more than £10 on a watch fools?

Are those who pay more than £20 for some jeans crazy?

Designer labels and brand names always attract premium prices and in some respects that is what Apple is, a premium designer label.

Please don't knock those that wish to pay for these 'designer' brands as it just belittles yourself and others, as well as lowering the tone of this site.

If a deal is a deal, whether you would personally buy the item or not, it is worth letting others have the opportunity of seeing the deal. Vote cold if you can find it cheaper elsewhere but don't vote on the grounds you don't like Apple or Rolex or Levis!

Happy New Year to all Hotukdeals users.
:santa:

There are several mice for £50+, mostly targetted at gamers. Personally I find that skimping on input devices is a bad thing, as they are the the thing that you use the most on the computer, and bad ones are infuriating. I'm also not aware of any mice that offer the features of this one, however gimmicky they may be.

This is a good mouse, Apple or not it's a nice bit of kit to use.

I agree with Chinny_racoon, you cannot skimp on input devices you'll just end up buying twice. Ok so £50 is a lot of money but I've spent that on a Logitech one before so it's not an exclusive club that Apple belong too.

It is a hot deal because, again as said above, unless you get HE discount you'll probably not find it cheaper.

Great mouse for Mac users, cheapest iv seen so hot from me... HNY!

No, a good deal is something that's good value for money - possibly with a minimum level of features or quality. Anything that's twice the price of similar items because of the name attached is not a hot deal.

Personally I've voted this cold. £50 for a mouse is fine if it offers the features to back it up, this one doesn't. All the current gestures just replicate normal mouse functionality and most of the reviews aren't great.

But i do not know of any other mouse that has these features. It knows whether you are using one finger (so scrolling in any direction in a document or picture) or using two fingers to go back and forth. I am studying law so have to go through documents of over 1000 pages sometimes and it's so much better and more comfortable moving my finger over the whole pad than using a small fixed wheel. Can move my hand into any position I want with wrist on the table

To be honest, this mouse can only be used with mac's and those who have never used a mac or a macbook touch pad may not know what they are missing out on. Thus believe this is the same as other mice but people are so gullible, they'll happily pay more for the brand name.

I upgraded to this after using a dell bluetooth mouse for 6 months and it is much better (even though all mice do essentially the same thing)

I think in the context of this website a good deal is someone finding a product that is cheaper than anyone else can find it. It matters not if you don't think the product is value for money or not, that's not what you should be voting on. You should vote hot if you think it cannot be found more cheaply anywhere else or cold if you can find it cheaper. If it doesn't matter to you or you have no interest then don't vote as all it does is fcuk up the system and give inaccurate results.

So find it cheaper or shut up is the bottom line I'm afraid.

Have seen some reviews of other cheaper mice, eg. Logitech V470, saying this puts the Apple Mighty Mouse to shame (by those who had used it). Alright paying for a designer brand, but if function over form is what matters look elsewhere IMO.

That's very similar to the Dell mouse I used to have (both must be made by logitech with Dell rebranding).

Was ok but not as smooth over the table surface. Plus used to get glitchy whenever Time Machine was wirelessly backing up (perhaps the signal wasn't strong enough?). Don't get such problems with Magic mouse but then it could my macbook that was being glitchy and not the mouse. I agree that it worked perfectly well as a mouse.

imo, the logitech is the same as any other cheap wireless mouse (but it has BT). The magic mouse is something that is different. If you want a mouse with loads of buttons for games etc then there are better mice available, but for those who want the same functionality as their macbook trackpad, then nothing else is available to buy.

Have you looked at the deals being posted recently? That may have been the original intention but right now the vast majority of people are voting on whether a product is good value for money (with an unfortunate but probably unavoidable bias towards well recognised brands and products).

Actually there are several other options such as a ]standalone trackpad which does the ]full range of multitouch gestures including rotation and zooming instead of the very limited set of the magic mouse.

That looks like a gimmick product. The main benefit of multitouch is the whole pad is a button - plus it's about the same price as this mouse.

This is multitouch (halfway down the page)
apple.com/uk/…tml

Wonder what the pad is made of? My sister's dell has a pad made of some sort of plastic that is not as responsive when being used. The link looks like a poor way of bringing apple functions to the PC users.

I'll stick with a magic mouse thanks

Maybe they are but joining them and voting improperly isn't going to improve the website is it.

Since Comet have now sold out of them it shows that many found this to be a 'good deal' which is the whole point of this site!

It's a shame some members feel they have to vote down a product just because they think the item is too expensive whatever the deal presented, rather than on its particular merit.

If you can find it cheaper elsewhere then vote cold (and let us know where the cheaper offer is) but if you don't want or like the item don't vote at all. `If all followed this simple advice the deals would be easier to spot making the site more useful. :thumbsup:

Very well said and exactly my point. Rep Added.

It happens all to often where a quality product (or even an off the wall uncommon one) is found at a good price and gets berated because people don't like it or simply don't understand it.

I posted 20% off British Gas Homecare the other day, it went cold straight away - You show me where you can beat 20% off BG Homecare and I'll agree it should be cold.

I wish the mods could/would clamp down a bit on this practice as it's ruining a great resource.

Well said. I put the deal up in the first place as it was the cheapest deal I could find (in the UK anyway). I know that many people might not think the item in question is worth £50, but was hoping that someone might be able to find the same item for cheaper.
Just hope mine turns up on Monday....

Prefer the new Logitech Performance Mouse MX with nano receiver. The sculpted design guides your hand to a naturally poised position so it's much more comfortable after extend use. Only problem is Apple themselves only putting 2 measly USB ports.

That's irrelevant. Funny that the MacBook Pro 13" underwent a design revision adding a firewire port & SD-card reader. Shame they didn't add another USB for good measure.

Problem is when using a notebook out and about, it's not at all convenient carrying a powered USB hub especially when the devices need 500 mA. The 1 plug e.g. in the library or train powers the laptops power brick.

Oh and by the way I have both Mac & Windows OS only notebooks before being accused of bias. And I use my Logitech VX Nano on both.

True - they could've installed about 7 USB's if they wanted too.

I'm glad they chose to install BT and make keyboards and mice that also work on BT. Saves me using up a USB port when there are alternatives

available.

I only ever use USB to sync my iPod and use FW for my camcorder. I'm sure others out there may need multiple USB ports - they do offer more on their wired keyboard. Personally, they should produce a dock for their macbooks (but the rate they're changing them over the last couple of years, it may not be in their best interests)

7 USB's? 3 would have been fine to be honest, there's enough space internally and on the chasis.

They had to install BT, would have been suicide! Apple didn't have firewire in the 2008 MacBook 13" Aluminum Unibody until it was relaunched with it. Stupid move since it was largely driven by contributions from Apple.

I just ordered one on very.co.uk for £34.95 delivered with use of voucher code (ZZ575) which takes £30 off a £60 spend, had to add a filler item (found a battery for £2) to go over £60 and after delivery it comes in at £34.95
