    i would think so. maybe a bluetooth mighty mouse will be a small upgrade at macworld. i cant see why apple would make such nice yet wired mouse. apple is always trying to phase out the old and get in with the new, and wireless is the new thing, and wireless bluetooth is the best

    does anyone not like their mighty mouse? I find myself always right clicking instead of left clicking. They should have made it two seperate buttons instead of the way they did it.

    I used one in the apple store and was unimpressed. Even though I'm a PC user I still don't feel that two buttons are necessary for a mac. When I had an ibook I didn't even miss the other button. I would personally wait until it goes bluetooth because the multibutton option to me isn't worth losing the wirelessness.

    Even if Apple released a bluetooth Mighty Mouse I'd probably stick with my Logitech MX900.

    I bought one, used it for a couple days and returned it. I found I was always miss clicking and that my hand got sore quickly while using it. I use a cordless Microsoft mouse that cost less and is much more ergonomic but stands out like a sore thumb on my desk.

    i have heard alot of people complaining about getting sore hands when using the mighty mouse, if they do release a bluetooth version i hope they will fix it so that you dont have to take one finger off the mouse to right click. :x:

    the problem with the mighty mouse is you have to take your fingers off the mouse to click the buttons. (Only one finger can be on the mouse when you click the right mouse button.) I always have left my fingers sitting on the button spots so it's a pain to deal with.

    I have one and prefer my Logitech MX700 more. If they make one with side scrolling and BT, I would get that in a heartbeat instead of waiting for a mighty mouse. The MX series is much more comfortable.

    the mighty mouse is not a very good mouse. i bought one because i wanted a scroll wheel and everything else on it. ibook + short mouse cord + right handed = stupid move by apple. i took it back and got a logitech mx1000 bluetooth. couldn't be happier with it.

    At my last trip to the apple store, the MM I was using was broken. Wouldnt right click at all, and left click was clunky.

    word, so annoying, and it doesnt look as nice as if they were on the back.
    But my mouse cord is HUGE, like 5-6 feet minimum. It goes down the back and under my desk.
    Simple Microsoft optical mouse for like 15 bucks FTW. Very comfortable, scroll wheel works nicely, and its got page back page forwards buttons on the side.
