Here’s a good case made by the GeekSugar.com blog (http://www.geeksugar.com/1550696), and is exactly what I have thought of regarding Apple’s mighty mouse. I’ve contemplated on getting one unit for 6 months already, but everytime I see a great deal from ebay.com, amazon.com, bestbuy.com or even apple.com I just can’t seem to click that “BUY NOW” button. I ended up (three times) getting an A4Tech mouse for both my brand new Macbooks.
Yeah, I did give the Mighty Mouse a good try, I liked how it fits my hand. I also liked the small scroll button (although I know I’d get tired of it soon), but over all, i’d give it a fair mark. I’m not surprised that this isn’t part of the best selling list on the Apple Online Store.
Quick price watch: The Mighty Mouse Wired version sells for $47-$56. The Might Mouse Wireless version sells for $66-$70.
Here’s a noteworthy review from the professionals at CNet.com:
The good: Bluetooth wireless connectivity (even works in Windows, with Boot Camp); batteries lend welcome heft; ease to install and set up.
The bad: Side buttons lack sufficient tactile feedback and require too much pressure; doesn’t work with standard Windows-based PCs (at least, not easily).
The bottom line: Apple’s new wireless Mighty Mouse cuts the cord, giving you the freedom of untethered mousing. The design isn’t perfect, and Apple isn’t shy about the price, but Mac desktops and laptops beg for as little clutter around them as possible, and for that, the Mighty Mouse delivers.
