Mobee Wireless Mouse

The Mobee wireless mouse is an Apple-approved alternative to the Magic Mouse. Cheaper in price and lacking in only a couple scroll functions, the Mobee product is the economical choice for someone who just shelled out the money for a new Mac computer.

Along with the drop-on style charger that doesn’t require extra cords into the mouse itself, this mouse is an interesting alternative to the traditional Mac mouse. It is light-weight and ergonomic enough; it could be a bit wider for people with a bigger grip.

Some features are fidgety, like a 360 zoom works better when two-finger screen scroll is enabled. But a two-finger screen scroll disables a two-finger full-screen app scroll, a useful feature for OS X Lion. And the option to use one-finger to swipe between screens is sure to illicit groans every five minutes. Though these mediocre features are fairly disappointing, it would still make a great stocking-stuffer. Despite those inconveniences, the inductive charger is just plain cool, and the mouse functions like a mouse should: It clicks, goes where I tell it to and features like zoom and scroll are good—even from 10 feet away!

But if you are willing to spend the 20 or so more dollars for a Magic Mouse, do it.
