    Being a bit skeptical about this at first but I am not sold on it. It CAN be installed on a MAC and Windows Machine! I travel a lot and carry a MacBook Air. The disc that comes with the mouse does not have the a Mac Driver so you have to visit the brookstone website (http://www.brookstone.com/scanner-mouse?bkiid=body_zone|hmpg|a|cat3|giftsunder100|817873p) then click on product specs, once there you will see the link to download the Mac and the windows drivers. I had to download the windows driver from the site because the driver on the disc would not install, it would hang up and fail. However once I downloaded the driver from Brookstone it installed without a hitch. I have been happy with this product because it duels as a mouse and a scanner so it helps to alleviate carrying extra peripherals, plus it is very light weight and fits nicely into a business proffessional who tries to carry computer equipment to a messenger bag or a laptop bag carry on. As opposed the neat recipe, which is bigger and heavier and it just a scanner, and it is cheaper too.

    The mouse is about a mediam sized body, so about average size for a mouse. Larger then the microsoft traveling mice. The mouse tracks well and smoothly.

    However, I did discover to my disappointment that it only saves to a JPEG format, but if you can print to PDF then you are set and instead of saving your scan just print it and then print it as a PDF. The program itself will not allow one to save to PDF directly. It is very quick and the stitching of the scanned area is very fast. I would say a must for any constant traveler who needs to keep receipts and send them off on the road or someone who just want a quick easy portable scanner.

    Granted there are other ones out there that scan at a higher DPi then 320, but they also cost more.

    I had hoped this would be a good tool for scanning books and historical documents (often 11 x14)but it is just not the right tool for this need. The scan window is about 1" x 2" so it is incredibly hard to scan the whole document without missing something and the stiching of any rescans leaves a lot to be desired so you end up with a nasty skewed image and have to start over again. A couple of the most frustrating hours of my life. If you are thinking about scanning anything over 3 x 5 and unless you have nerves of steel and the patience of Job, keep waiting for ver 3 of this technology. Good news. Brookstone has a great return policy and this little experiment will only cost me about $16.00 shipping.

    Comments about Scanner Mouse:

    I will mostly use the scan mouse at school, but it is nice to quickly scan small items at home. It did have some errors in the text where I wasn't careful during the scan and overlapped too much. The fix was fairly easy and relatively quick. Pictures scanned well the first time.

        Although I could see an entire business card in the preview, the mouse would not capture the entire thing.It's impossible to move in a straight line so text is a disaster. I get better scans from a free app for my phone!

        I keep the scanner in a pouch so as to protect the glass scanning pane. And put my tablet PC , stylus, USB expansion and other paraphernalia in a bag - office on the go !
        The scanning is remarkably accurate for my purpose.

            Comments about Scanner Mouse:

            The Brookstone Scanner Mouse is extremely helpful for research. It's perfect for scanning photos or magazine/newspaper articles. Works okay with books: paperbacks need to be as flat as possible and may need to scan right hand pages upside down - easily corrected with the included software. OCR works very well with MS Word. Very easy to set up and to use.

            This mouse is a great tool to scan small receipts or photos. You can do it at your desk very quickly. The larger the document you want to scan, the harder it is to do it perfectly. I bought one several months ago and found it so useful to scan small items without having to get up and go down the hall to the copy machine. I bought one for all of the department members to use. As you use it, you get better at scanning so don't get frustrated at first.

              I've been wanting one since I saw it in an airport Brookstone. After ordering it arrived very quickly. The software was a breeze to set up and easy to use.It packs close and travels well, too. My only trouble is with my large hands activating the Scan mode inadvertently.I would also like to change the default save extension. Other than that I like the unit.Everyone who sees it loves it...
