    Okay, folks. For housekeeping purposes, let's keep all Magic Mouse discussions here.

    [​IMG]

    Seamless Multi-Touch Surface
    Magic Mouse — with its low-profile design and seamless top shell — is so sleek and dramatically different, it brings a whole new feel to the way you get around on your Mac. You can’t help but marvel at its smooth, buttonless appearance. Then you touch it and instantly appreciate how good it feels in your hand. But it’s when you start using Magic Mouse that everything comes together.

    The Multi-Touch area covers the top surface of Magic Mouse, and the mouse itself is the button. Scroll in any direction with one finger, swipe through web pages and photos with two, and click and double-click anywhere. Inside Magic Mouse is a chip that tells it exactly what you want to do. Which means Magic Mouse won’t confuse a scroll with a swipe. It even knows when you’re just resting your hand on it.

    Laser-Tracking Engine
    Magic Mouse uses powerful laser tracking that’s far more sensitive and responsive on more surfaces than traditional optical tracking. That means it tracks with precision on nearly every surface — whether it’s a table at your favorite cafe or the desk in your home office — without the need for a mousepad.

    Wireless
    Magic Mouse connects wirelessly to your Mac via Bluetooth, so there’s no wire or separate adapter to worry about. Pair Magic Mouse with your Bluetooth-enabled Mac and enjoy a reliable and secure connection up to 33 feet away. When you combine Magic Mouse with the Apple Wireless Keyboard, you create a workspace free of annoying cables.

    And because Magic Mouse is wireless, it can venture beyond the confines of your desk. A quick flick of the on/off switch helps conserve battery power while Magic Mouse is tucked in your bag. Even when it’s on, Magic Mouse manages power efficiently, by detecting periods of inactivity automatically.

    Make one great gesture after another.
    Multi-Touch technology on the iPhone and iPod touch introduced a breakthrough way to interact with your content. Magic Mouse, with its Multi-Touch surface, does the same thing for your Mac. When you use gestures, it’s as if you’re touching what’s on your screen. For instance, swiping through web pages in Safari gives you the feeling of flicking through pages in a magazine. And scrolling with Magic Mouse isn’t your everyday scrolling. It supports momentum scrolling (similar to iPhone and iPod touch), where the scrolling speed is dictated by how fast or slowly you perform the gesture.

    Click
    Magic Mouse is an advanced point-and-click mouse that lets you click and double-click anywhere on its Multi-Touch surface.

    Two-button click
    Magic Mouse functions as a two-button mouse when you enable Secondary Click in System Preferences. Left-handed users can reassign left and right click, as well.

    360° scroll
    Brush one finger along the Multi-Touch surface to scroll in any direction and to pan a full 360 degrees.

    Screen zoom
    Hold down the Control key on your keyboard and scroll with one finger on Magic Mouse to enlarge items on your screen.

    Two-finger swipe
    Using two fingers, swipe left and right along the Multi-Touch surface to advance through pages in Safari or browse photos in iPhoto.

    System Requirements
    Bluetooth-enabled Mac computer
    Mac OS X v10.5.8 or later with Wireless Mouse Software Update 1.0
    Existing keyboard and mouse for setup

    Honestly, anything's an improvement over the dreaded scroll ball. Still, it does look slick.

    Yeah, the scroll ball, which you have to clean every now and then (or wet with your saliva if you're in a mad rush).

    It's been approximately 4 years since the Mighty Mouse came out. A lot of new technology has arisen. It's about time Apple upgraded its mouse line. And I must say it's a fine upgrade.

    Yeah, it's on the pricey side. That what I said 4 years ago but I still bought one anyway, hahaha... :D This year's no different.

    Oh wait... I'm receiving a new iMac as a wedding gift. Looks like this time's gonna be different after all. :p

    OT:

    @chairman: my brother-in-law, hahaha... :D

    He wanted to give an iMac as a wedding present. However, he was advised by the store to hold back until the newer models come out. Good thing he listened! Now, I'll get to try the new Magic Mouse and the new iMac! ;)
