Apple have reached another milestone by bringing Multi-Touch technology gestures to the desktop with a mouse that's unlike anything ever before. It's called Magic Mouse and it is the world's first Multi-Touch mouse. 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. 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. Supplied as standard with every new iMac, you can also add the Apple Wireless Magic Mouse 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.
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 favourite cafe or the desk in your home office - without the need for a mousepad.
Give it your personal touch.

Maybe you want scrolling but don’t want swiping. Or two-button clicking instead of one. Whatever the case, Magic Mouse works the way you want it to work. All you do is go to the Magic Mouse preference pane in System Preferences to enable or disable features.
The ambidextrous design of Magic Mouse means it fits comfortably in your right hand if you’re a righty or in your left hand if you’re a lefty. And left-handers can easily swap left and right button functionality using System Preferences.
