    Pretty looks, but not that practical, February 17, 2005
    ARC (United States) –

    This review is from: Apple Optical Mouse – White (Personal Computers)

    Apple’s new optical mouse is gorgeous to look at, but for day-to-day use there are better options.

    First of all, this mouse has a short cord. Unless you have a USB hub sitting right on your desktop, you MUST plug this mouse into a USB port on your keyboard because the cord isn’t really long enough to be plugged in anywhere else. If you have an unusual desktop arrangement–for example, if you are using a lousy dorm room desk whose keyboard tray has no room for a mouse–it is extremely awkward to use this mouse.

    The one button wasn’t really a problem, even though I am a former Windows user who is used to clicking the right mouse button. OS X and well-designed applications can be used comfortably without that second button; if you need a context menu, you can either click-and-hold or hold down the Control key while clicking.

    The way in which the one button is implemented, however, is more problematic. While the “no button” design is visually appealing, I find that I sometimes click the mouse button if I rest my hand on the mouse the wrong way. Unlike the Apple Optical Pro Mouse, however, this one does not have a sensitivity dial on the underside that can be used to make mouse clicks stiffer.

    The shape of this mouse also bothered me after several weeks of regular use. In comparison to most desktop mice, the Apple Mouse is fairly flat in the back. When I use this mouse, I find that my palm is usually cupping empty air. Using it this way for a short while isn’t much of a problem, but after continuous use it begins to make my palm ache. It is also more difficult to pick up and move because of its flat shape.

    I didn’t have any problems with the mouse’s optical tracking. I do not play computer games or do anything else that requires lightning-fast mouse movements, so I can’t really comment on its responsiveness in that respect.

    I might consider buying another Apple mouse if they made a more ergonomically shaped model and lengthened the cord, but for now I’m sticking with my Logitech optical scroll mouse.

    If you do like the appearance of this mouse, I recommend getting a used Apple Pro Mouse instead. It looks similar to this mouse, but the bottom also has a dial for adjusting the button sensitivity; it also comes in a semi-translucent smoky-colored plastic for those who don’t have white Macs or peripherals.

    Just note this is not the Pro mouse., November 30, 2005

    I purchased this mouse for a used iMac I purchased. It’s a nice mouse with a quality feel to it. Please note that if you are replacing the Apple Pro Mouse that used to be bundled with Macs, this mouse looks very similar, but does not allow you to adjust the click sensitivity. This was a problem for me initially, as I had my Pro mouse on a “soft” setting and found it uncomfortable to click on the relatively “hard” setting this mouse is fixed on. After not using a computer for a week, I returned and found that the “hard” click did not bother me anymore.

    I am an Apple fan who recommends most of their products to friends and family, but I think they put way too much emphasis on the ascetics for this gorgeous piece of crap.

    Totally mod, Innovative, Vogue, Trendsetting, Flashy, Elegant, Sophisticated, Suave.
    If it were a car, it would be incredibly aerodynamic!

    The no-button-pivot-point is easy to accidentally click, especially if you have something on your desk that you might bump it into, e.g. eMac, because bumping even the side of the mouse will click it. It’s basically one big clumpy button .

    No right click button is a step backwards. Having to click while holding control should not be necessary, and I get a little sad every time I have to do it. Is this 80’s?!

    Everyone has been dragging something, when their mouse is nearing an object (emac, keyboard, ect) on their desk, well, in the less cool, non-innovative days you could simply hold down your left click button, pick up your mouse, and continue dragging, not losing your spot. This problem is probably pops up the most while using Photoshop and you’re lassoing something and are running out of actual desk space with your mouse and you have to re lasso, which is why you decide to write a review on Amazon. With the new super shiny Apple mouse, there is no button to hold down, you have to squeeze the sides and try to make it THINK that it is still on your desk. And I’m pretty sure it CAN think, seeing as it’s so cutting edge.

    This sure was therapeutic!

    You would be better off buying a USB optical mouse with a left and right click, even though you won’t be able to hang with the in-crowd.
