Today Apple introduced the new wireless Magic Mouse, the first mouse to use Apple's Multi-Touch technology.
Pioneered on iPhone, iPod touch and Mac notebook trackpads, Multi-Touch allows you to navigate using intuitive finger gestures.
Instead of mechanical buttons, scroll wheels or scroll balls, the entire top of the Magic Mouse is a seamless Multi-Touch surface.

Magic Mouse comes standard with the new iMac and will be available as a Mac accessory at just $69.

Magic Mouse features a seamless touch-sensitive enclosure that allows it to be a single or multi-button mouse with advanced gesture support.

Using intuitive gestures, users can easily scroll through long documents, pan across large images or swipe to move forward or backward through a collection of web pages or photos. Magic Mouse works for left or right handed users and multi-button or gesture commands can be easily configured from within System Preferences.

The Magic Mouse laser tracking engine provides a smooth, consistent experience across more surfaces than a traditional optical tracking system. Magic Mouse uses Bluetooth wireless capabilities to create a clean, cable-free desk top and its secure wireless connection works from up to 10 meters away.
To extend battery performance, Magic Mouse includes an advanced power management system that works with Mac OS X to automatically switch to low power modes during periods of inactivity. The wireless Magic Mouse is powered by two AA batteries which are included.

The Magic Mouse has the potential to set Apple even more apart from Windows based computers. The open question is now if the Magic Mouse really is intuitive and users will want to adjust and leave their standard mouse behind.

Magic Mouse comes standard with the new iMac and is available at the end of October through the Apple Store.
