Mac on SBS - The Wireless Mighty Mouse

We just received a Bluetooth wireless Mighty Mouse to replace the rather tired wired Mighty Mouse that came with this iMac.

Our current Mighty Mouse required a good amount of alcohol to get its little scroll ball rolling and reading properly again. But, like anything else, alcohol can only get you so far ... or not! ;)

Wow, what a nice feel to the new wireless Mighty Mouse.

The Mighty Mouse in general has a really nice shape. It fits very well in the hands.

The batteries are sitting about 40/60 within the wireless mouse with the bias towards the rear of the mouse. This gives the mouse a very firm and precise feel to it. It is seemingly well balanced in its action and feel.

The really neat thing about it was its install.

The iMac has a Bluetooth radio built into it.

The install was a number of clicks to start the device detection in the Bluetooth manager, pair the mouse with the iMac, and voila! The install is done. Simple. No drivers to muck around with.

Very smooth.

The new mouse definitely improves the MacLand experience. :D

It is definitely a recommended upgrade for anyone looking to replace their current wired Mighty Mouse.
