The Mighty Mouse combines the capability of a multibutton mouse with Apple's signature top-shell design for both form and function. Mighty Mouse's Scroll Ball features miniature sensors that allow you to manipulate what appears on your screen merely by moving your finger. The 360-degrees scrolling perfectly positions to roll smoothly under just one finger. Touch-sensitive technology under Mighty Mouse's seamless top shell detect where you're clicking, transforming your sleek, one-button mouse into a two-button wonder. Pan images in iPhoto, view timelines in iMovie HD and Final Cut Pro, traverse bars in GarageBand and Logic Pro while sipping your morning cup of coffee or typing. Pre-programmed to launch Dashboard, Mighty Mouse's side buttons show you all your open windows in Expose with a squeeze. Mac OS X gives you the capability to choose any application from the intuitive System Preference pane.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: To be honest, I did not like the Mighty Mouse when I first tried it out. It felt like there was some sort of learning curve one had to get through before getting comfortable with it. I actually remember switching back to a "normal" Logitech mouse a few times simply because I had such a hard time getting used to the Mighty Mouse scroll ball and everything else.
PROS: As it turns out, after using the Mighty Mouse for a month or two, I actually like the scroll ball and I haven't had any problems with it getting unresponsive. Will definitely try the paper trick mentioned elsewhere if that does happen.
The side buttons are great for the Expose feature, even though I don't use it that much.
I also like the size of the mouse--smaller than a normal mouse and larger than a "wimp mouse" (those little micro mice you see for laptops).
The small cable (~2 feet) is also nice. Call me old-fashioned, but I like my electronics with the cable still attached. You can't have a mouse without a tail, right?
CONS: Not many, but I do think it is a bit tedious having to make sure that you press on the outside-most part of the mouse to guarantee a left- or right-click. If you touch anywhere near the scroll ball there is no telling what might happen. For this same reason I would not use this mouse for gaming.
DOES THE MIGHTY MOUSE GET OUT OF THE MAZE?: Yes, but not without getting a little lost.
Frankly, I've never understood the frustration some Windows users of two-button mice have with the Mac's one-button mice. I've always found the two-button mice frustrating and more difficult to use, always having to stop and think about which button to push if I wanted to simply click on a link. With a one-button mouse, there is only one button to push and nothing to think about. In addition, two-button mice tend to have small buttons that are jammed next to each other. This made it easy to accidently push the wrong button. The Windows' two-button mice, like the Windows operating system, are just not intuitive and not easy to use. To say that a one-button mouse is less user friendly defies logic and common sense. But it does give one some insight into the minds of Windows users: that they use Windows and its products not by choice but by habit. Seasoned Windows users who are used to doing back-flips in order to complete tasks in Windows (and who pat themselves on the back for such achievements) are not used to the simplicity of Apple products and tend to think too much.
Anyway, with the arrival of the Mighty Mouse, there is something for everyone. The mouse's ability to be programmed allows it to function as a one-button or a multi-button mouse. And after using its scroll button, you'll never be able to live without it.
