Apple unleashed several hardware updates today in their iMac, MacBook and Mac mini lines, but the most interesting news comes with the release of their new Magic Mouse, a wireless multi-touch mouse.
Straight from Apple:
The same Multi-Touch technology first introduced on the revolutionary iPhone comes to the mouse. It's called Magic Mouse, and it's the world's first Multi-Touch mouse. Click anywhere, scroll in any direction, and swipe through images on its smooth, seamless top shell. It works wirelessly using Bluetooth, so you don't have to worry about cables or adapters cluttering your workspace. And built-in software lets you configure Magic Mouse any way you want.
Apple's Mighty Mouse may have been one of the most hated point-and-clickers on the planet (I've never used one that actually worked well), but Apple at the very least got an "A" for trying something kind of new. We'll see if they fare better this time around. Gizmodo's got a hands-on with the Magic Mouse, along with info on the updated $1,299 MacBook, the refreshed iMacs, and the beefier Mac minis.
The Magic Mouse will ship with the new iMacs starting today, or you can buy one separately from the Apple Store for $99.
