Magic Mouse! Finally!
16 02, 10 Filed in: Mice | Unboxing
I’ve been trying to get my hands on one of these bad boys since Christmas, but it’s been out of stock every time I’ve gone to the Apple Store.
I should have just ordered it online. Anyway...
I love this thing! Gone are the days of the sticky Mighty Mouse scroll ball. I loved the Magic Mouse. I loved it so much that I got one when it first went wireless. I then bought a new one when that one got smashed. I then bought parts to repair that one when it broke too. I loved the Mighty Mouse, but that damn scroll ball sucked!
Other than Targus, I couldn’t find another mouse that matched Apples’s look and feel. People just don’t know how to make a nice looking mouse in white. So basically, I stuck with the Mighty Mouse.
I immediately took to the multitouch wonder that is the Magic Mouse. There’s no learning curve, and there’s no getting used to it. It just feels right, and just works naturally.
I also installed MagicPrefs so that I could have even more multitouch love from my Magic Mouse.
Now a 3-fingered click launches Expose and a 4-fingered click launches Dashboard. 2 fingered swipes left, right, up, or down changes my Space.
That’s just awesome.
Cue the obligatory unboxing ceremony:
It’s definitely a lot thinner than the Mighty Mouse.
And there you have it! The Magic Mouse is now Apple Mouse #5 for me. (Sorry, never had a puck!) So, if your Mighty Mouse is killing you, and you can’t see yourself with a cheap $20 black piece of junk PC mouse, the Magic Mouse is for you.
