At the top of the design heap rests Apple's Magic Mouse, a sculptural beauty with Bluetooth and laser technology as well as miniature sensors to help detect even the slightest movement. An added bonus: Left-handers can easily swap left and right button functionality using System Preferences, and the ambidextrous design of the Magic Mouse means it fits comfortably in your hand whether you're a righty or a lefty.

It's backed by a 5-year warranty.
