The device features a seamless touch-sensitive enclosure that allows it to be a single or multi-button mouse with gesture support. Using gestures, users can scroll through long documents, pan across large images or swipe to move forward or backward through web pages or photos.
Magic Mouse works for left or right handed users and multi-button or gesture commands can be configured from within System Preferences.
The mouse's laser tracking engine keeps things running, and the mouse itself uses Bluetooth wireless to make it happen. Apple says the mouse has "an advanced power management system" to help with battery life -- it's powered by two included AA batteries.
