Magic Mouse work? - 10-20-2009, 06:08 PM
Anyone know if this mouse works with the Mini 10v's? I'm running Snow Leopard.

I can only assume it would work fine if you have BlueTooth on your 10v
How would any of us know yet? I guarantee nobody has one yet, since it was just announced in the last 4 hrs. But there should be no reason for it to not work...

So I've been wondering this also, the new mouse looks pretty slick and it'd be a neat addition to the bag, especially since it's bluetooth and you wouldn't have to worry about dongles or wires.
I figured that a mini running OSX would definitely work with the mouse, I mean, that's really what it's made for. What would be more interesting is whether or not it will work with any Windows versions...
As far as I've found, the basic mousey features work as per norm, but the gestures don't work yet.
However Apple have committed to supporting Win7 in bootcamp: Apple will officially support Windows 7 in Boot Camp before end of year
My understanding from this is that when apple makes it's drivers for bootcamp, one of them will likely be for the Magic Mouse. It only makes sense, since the MacOS PCs that they will be running bootcamp on will now be shipping with the magic mouse standard.
Then again, they could just leave Win7 with standard mouse click/rightclick type support... I guess it's hard to tell.
Fingers crossed! If Win7 gets drivers, I think it'll make a great dual-boot mouse for the mini's running OSX/Win7
Anyone else heard anything?

Just got my 'Magic Mouse' & yep it works as advertised.
One thing I noticed was after installing their software & rebooting the 'bluetooth mod' whereby you can switch off bluetooth stopped working. Just re-installed the kext (which I had saved when I intially made the changes) using 'kext helper' & after a reboot all was well.
Going to use it for a week or so before I decide on which one I will stay with (VX Nano - Magic Mouse) though straight away I'm going to miss the extra buttons the nano provides..

You really need to be Army Strong to upgrade the memory on a 10v. I looked at some instructions on the web and I'm not sure I would want to do it. You have my best wishes for a successful upgrade and a great R&R. Come home safe and sound.

You could use a usb/bluetooth thing, which they now make quite tiny. But since you're going to do the RAM thing anyway, you probably might as well install BT.
A discussion of which BT modules work with OS X:
which bluetooth module to install on mini 10v and OS X
And a discussion on installing (the hardware):
