We’ve built a better mouse.
It began with iPhone. Then
came iPod touch. Then MacBook Pro. Intuitive, smart, dynamic.
Multi-Touch technology introduced a remarkably better way to interact
with your portable devices — all using gestures. Now we’ve reached
another milestone by bringing gestures to the desktop with a mouse
that’s unlike anything ever before. It's called Magic Mouse. It's the
world's first Multi-Touch mouse. And while it comes standard with every
new iMac, you can also add it to any Bluetooth-enabled Mac for a Multi-Touch makeover.
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.
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.
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.
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

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