    "Using your digits to dance," may not currently be the norm, but it may turn out to be much more ergonomic than traditional buttons. Setting a trackpad to respond to touch and not using it as a button at all is, in my experience, much more ergonomic. The only problem there is that on MacBooks it's in a somewhat awkward position. Having a standalone touch device off to the side, in a more natural position, seems the best arrangement.



    And, you don't, "[Prop] up your fingertips," on it, "like a ballerina." You hold it just like the hand in Apple's pictures does and just make small movements of your fingertips. In 3 months, everyone will be rushing copies of this design to the market. Some of them may work better than Apple's, which is fine, but I think the non-ergonomic charges will fade away like breath on a cold morning.



    I could not agree more!

    Your cable bill has nothing to do with preordering a mouse. It does have to do with exactly what you wrote - "Must be nice to have $70+ to burn."

    My point is that you spend MORE than $70/month to burn on something yet your post hints that spending $70 one time on something that will be used for a year or more would not be possible by Joe Blue Collar.

    Maybe you should invest instead in a grammar class for your $70. It's "it's", not "its".

    Unless you don't like it for whatever reason and it winds up in the trash. JEESH. Think please before you post.

    I spend $70+/mo on my cable bill because I get satisfaction from it; otherwise I would have cancelled it. I'm neither a TimeWarner Cable fanboy nor stockholder.

    Or you can return it for your money back. $70 seems to be enough to make it worth returning if you don't like it. If you wait longer than the store allows for a return, throw it for sale online, I'm pretty sure you could get two thirds of your money back.



    Don't you think you're carrying on a bit much on this? I don't plan to buy it, but I'm not making a big fuss about it. The Logitech mouse I like is $10, fits me, is low maintenance and lasts many years. I'm sure there are options for you out there.

    The great thing about odds is that every once in awhile they get "defied". I'll still wait until I use the magic mouse before I post my opinion about it. That way it may be more credible.

    I'm not carrying on at all about it. I could care less how people spend their money- as I said different strokes.... I'm just responding to someone comparing speding habits that make no sense. But many of us on here would rather wait and actually see it and read about it before throwing money at it.

    Notice the use of the word "may" ... hence my willingness to agree. imho I find it best to read all the words.

    That's fine, but it's usually not a big deal to return it if it doesn't work out. There are several reviews out there already. Except for Apple products, it's getting harder to try things out before buying anyway. But that's probably not so true for you in NYC, but Best Buy is about the only place close to me that has several mice on display, and it's maybe 10 different kinds, none of them connected to a computer.

    Yes, but It won't be for a week or so ...... kinda busy for next 2 weeks .... Also I'm almost afraid to check out new iMacs ... mine is only 3 years old and with new capacity I'm putting in, it's kinda hard for me to justify new machine , no matter how much I may like it.

    don't make the mistake of thinking your opinion will be taken as credible.

    Leave it to CNET, Microsoft shill extraordinaire, to take shots at an Apple product.



    Actually, ALL mice have "ergonomic issues", so pointing the cursor at Apple is pretty disingenuous.

    Trackballs and stylus-based tablets are much better, ergonomically speaking.



    Still, I'd like to see the thing. Does it run on unicorn tears?

    We all hope you're using rechargeable batteries.

    It's real. Not Techstud spin. There's another laser mouse out. They track much better, even on a glass table surface. I don't know about Apple's, but the other, I think it's Microsoft model, reads the dust on the surface.



    I'm going to get one to play with, though I don't like mice. Yesterday when I went to the Apple store in the meatpacking district here, the only new product they had was the Macbook, which I'm not interested in looking at.
