Mighty Mouse

The name given to Apple's first multi-button mouse, launched in 2005. This was the first mouse manufactured and sold by Apple Computers since the Lisa era in 1983 that contained more than a single button. The Mighty Mouse offers four separate button areas including a touch-sensitive top for both the left and right click, a 360-degree clickable scroll bar, and side squeeze buttons to instantly access the Mac OS X Dashboard or other customizable features. Currently the Mighty Mouse is available in both wired and wireless versions.
