I don't feel ripped off at all, it's new technology. It's fun I think it's worth it.

i got it, and it's a pretty good mouse. The weight is nice. They accounted for the weight of the batteries. I imagine if you'd like it lighter, than you could put in some lithium batteries in, and it'd reduce the weight significantly.

It works almost the same on VMware except the swipe for back and forward. I'd really love it if it had a 3rd button option to use for panning on programs such as CAD and 3d rendering software that i use on the windows side.

I'm wondering right now since it's a multi touch, if it could get better in time, with updates. The pinch would be wonderful. And a 3 finger swipe to activate expose' or show desktop.

The mouse would be 5/5 if it had a "button 3" like the mighty mouse did.

right now. It's just like a super model. She's good to look at, but worthless in the kitchen. So, 4/5 stars from me.

I would love it to minic a trackpad in the way of taping to select things, double clicking etc..

This way the 'right click' could be used as expose..

I think I'll be going back to my mighty mouse because I miss expose..

It looks good to me and i've read reviews on the apple website and they are mostly positive. I really want to get this mouse because I have a mighty mouse that is constantly having trackball problems. Plus I hate going third party because it just does not feel right I want something that was meant for my computer.

What about setting up expose as a hot corner. I have a third party mouse ATM and use my hotcorner for expose. Unless you have them set as something else already.....

FedEx just dropped off my magic mouse. Like some others have said in different threads, there seem to be a slight lag when scrolling up/down - but I assume I'll get used to it.

All in all, seems fine for now. I don't believe it's a "must" but I wanted a mouse to use with my Air.
