Detailed review
I love my Magic Mouse. I've been using a MacBook Air for about 18 months and haven't used a mouse at all other than at work (which is quite a bit, but it's on a WinPC in the military - no blue tooth allowed). I recently purchased the new MacMini (2.53/4GB/320GB) and needed a mouse.

To me it is very intuitive. It works much like my MBA's touchpad. I wish this mouse could point around the screen like the touch pad, meaning you wouldn't have to move the mouse necessarily, but you could move it. However, you could make minor moves by moving your fingertip around. I know this could be accomplished with software.

The industrial design is stunning. It is hefty and substantive. It's like the BMW of mice. Seriously. After using it, it made me wonder why BMW doesn't use Apple to do it's idrive system.

I really do enjoy this mouse. It portends the future of mice.
