Apple Wired MouseIt’s the wired mouse that reinventsthe wheel — the scroll wheel. The Apple Mouse features the amazing Scroll Ball that lets you move anywhere inside a document, literally without lifting a finger. And with touch-sensitive technology concealed under the seamless top shell, you can choose either the versatility of a four-button mouse or the simplicity of a single-button beauty. Features:* Innovative Scroll Ball and button: Perfectly positioned to roll smoothly under just one finger, the Apple Mouse's Scroll Ball offers full 360-degree scrolling capability — up/down, left/right and diagonally. You can scroll long web pages, pan full-size images, maneuver around large spreadsheets, control a video timeline and more. Andyou can even click the Scroll Ball to access yourfavorite Mac OS X features such as Dashboard, Spotlight or Exposé.* Touch-sensitive top shell: It looks and feels like a sleek one-button mouse, but the Apple Mouse's smooth top shell hides a powerful secret: touch-sensitive technology under the shell detects which part of the mouse you're clicking, so you can both left-click and right-click. And if you prefer the simplicity of a classic one-button mouse, the Apple Mouse is up to the task. Just use the Mac OS X system preference pane to configure it how you want.* Force-sensing side buttons: When you give the Apple Mouse a squeeze, force-sensing side buttons can be configured to activate Mac OS X features such as Dashboard, Exposé or a whole host of other customizable features.* Customizable: If you have Mac OS X, the Apple Mousecan give you fingertip access to the special features you love. Simply use the system preference panel to configure the Apple Mouse in the way that makes you most powerful. Control the Scroll Ball's tracking and click functions, as well as the right, left and side click functions. And you even can set up different mouse profiles for every user account on your Mac.* O

If you're considering this mouse, I'd recommend looking at other options. Logitech in particular has some great mice that will last much longer than this one, are cheaper, and even some wireless ones that are a significantly better value.
I don't like the feel of the scroll ball, and it's not as responsive as it should be. The mouse overall feels a little wobbly, as if it isn't making consistent, even contact with the pad. You can program the buttons for different functionality (I set the scroll ball to work as the right-click button, for example).
This is being used on an older Mac that is no longer the main computer in the house, so the mouse is OK. I definitely would NOT want to use this product as my main go-to mouse for work or extended personal use.
I still have the wireless here on my desk right now for comparative purposes, along with the Apple Wired Mouse, just to make sure the wireless doesn't suddenly start working, but that's not happening. Occasionally I'll try the wireless and sometimes I pick it up by mistake, not realizing it until I get frustrated because it isn't moving when I want it to move! Originally I wanted the wireless because I felt like I had wires everywhere. Now it doesn't seem to be as much of a problem as I remember it to have been. Dealing with the wire may not be ideal, but it's a small thing compared to trying, and failing, to make my wireless mouse respond.
I've tried all kinds of mice over the years -- since I was first introduced to the Apple Mac platform in 1987 -- and, as far as computer mice go, the AWM (Apple Wired Mouse) with multi-scroll roller-ball is the best.
I've also tried various Bluetooth wireless mice, but they all have drawbacks: Skipping cursor syndrome, heavy batteries, rechargeable batteries that are a hassle to replace, buttons that are hard to clean and therefore break down making the mouse unusable, and then there's the cost. Apple Magic Mouse is expensive in price and battery usage. Cheaper mice wear out faster.
AWM needs no batteries since it uses power from USB, has at least a 5-year life span when cleaned regularly (mine has lasted 7 years so far) and is very comfortable and lightweight. I can even program the buttons however I need them to work -- for Mac OS or Windows OS.
The bad part is that the little ball works with brushes or something, and those wear out, or the contact wears out, over time. Not sure, but something happens. You can feel the ball spinning and the finger on the screen not moving. All parts wear out.
This is the best mouse for my Apple computers, including my laptop. I don't use all the features, and disabled some, either because I don't need them, I don't want them, or they are of no use to me. I love that ball. The movement of a fingertip moves the finger wherever.
If this mouse didn't wear out, I'd rate it 5 stars!
