Works GREAT with Mac! (Yosemite)
on 25 January 2015
Had my eyes on this mouse for months since I first came across it in an electronic chain. I loved the quiet, subdued click (I'd describe the sound as "velvety" ... if this makes any sense to you), the comfortable shape, the hefty weight and the nice, glossy finish.
As I own a Mac and the matching Apple mice, I passed on it at the time, however, thinking that a mouse designed for the competing operating system could never provide more functionality to me.
Now my Apple mouse's trackball recently jumped the shark and I was on the peripheral market once again. I ordered the Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse and I love it. Apart from the blue Windows button on the left side, that doesn't do anything, all the other clicks have remained exactly the same (eg clicking the tracking wheel still brings me into Mission Control etc). The mouse is so much more user-friendly and comfortable than my Apple Mighty Mouse (USB only and "blessed" with the constantly dying trackball) or my Apple Magic Mouse (Bluetooth, but too flat to feel good). Under OS X Yosemite you can still customize left click, right click, scroll direction, etc in the Mouse menu in the settings. I have read somewhere that you could also download a third party app that allows you to give a function to the blue Windows button.
For the last couple years I had been using my USB Apple Mighty Mouse (because the Bluetooth Magic Mouse is so flat and uncomfortable on my wrists) and hence was worried if having a Bluetooth mouse would drain my Macbook's battery. Absolutely not! I do not notice ANY decrease in battery life while using the mouse.
I definitely recommend it and will probably purchase a second one, in case this one gets discontinued.
