Apple's Best Mouse Is Your Deal of the Day

Illustration for article titled Apples Best Mouse Is Your Deal of the Day

You may have heard that the humble computer mouse is an endangered species, threatened by the rise of modern touch gestures. This may be true, but gesture based-computing isn't a zero-sum game. Millions of people still use a mouse every day, and some of those mice have slick gesture capabilities.


If you've got a Mac, the Magic Mouse is the mouse you want. Apple's Magic Mouse came out in 2009 and it's currently the best mouse Apple makes, not including the Magic Trackpad — which I'm not. Basically, it's a perfect companion to a MacBook or Mac Mini. The Magic Mouse is undeniably stylish, but it's also got a whole lot of functionality for Macs: you can program it to perform basically any Mission Controlling-gesture you can do with the Apple trackpad. Right now Best Buy — who have been extremely competitive on Apple prices recently — is selling refurbs for $35. That's 50% less than everywhere else, and a genuinely stellar deal. [Best Buy]

If you're not a Mac user, you should take a look at Microsoft's Arc Touch mouse, a gadget some considered to be the Redmond response to the Magic Mouse. Like Apple's mouse, it features a stylish design and gesture capabilities, but it's a little less expensive and should play better with Windows. Best Buy has the best price on this mouse too—they're selling the White version for $23 and it's usually $45. [Best Buy]

Jim Spanfeller Is a Herb BY EMMA CARMICHAEL

Magic Mouse has a terrible reputation, but after being a huge trackpad devotee, I had to use the mouse when an office iMac showed up with the wrong peripheral. It's actually pretty great, especially if you use a program to set custom gestures.
