    The wireless one. Was going to use it on my MBP cause the touchpad drives me insane. I just set it up about 5 minutes ago and I really like it a lot to the point of wishing I had got one sooner :bigthumb:

    I only have the wireless keyboard, thinking about getting the mx1000 instead of the mighty mouse

    Ask it if it has any emotional scars that haven't healed?

    If you just got it and it's doing it, I'd try replacing the batteries and cleaning the lense, if that doesn't work I'd just take it back.

    I just gave mine back to the guys down the hall after using it for 5 months. It slows me down having to get the right click just right instead of just clicking the damn right button like I can do on every other multi-button mouse out there. I tried to like it. I really did, but it just slows me down too much to use at work. Good for surfing the web, not so good for getting work done fast.

    I'm with you maczter, not a very good mouse. I honestly couldn't get used to it for anything, but I guess that doesn't surprise me much. I don't find apples input devices (keyboards, mice) to be very good.

    I love the mighty mouse until i try to scope, but shoot someone in the back of the head. That's the only real time the right-click becomes an issue for me, otherwise i can just do it again.

    i had that problem, blow some pressured air into the wheel hole, its all clumped it. Mine wouldn't scroll back up and that was the problem. Blew into it real hard a few times and it worked again.

    So Cliff's Notes thus far:

    If you're just playing on your Mac and your playing doesn't including sniping people, you might be happy with a Mighty Mouse.

    If you use it for work and don't care about efficiency as long as your shit looks tyte even if it means you might occasionally have to perform the same gesture twice to perform one action because you didn't do it quite right the first time and you don't mind giving your mouse a blow job on occasion to keep the scroll ball happy, then you might be happy with a Mighty Mouse.

    Logitech... probably some Microsoft mice... in fact a lot of the other brands make a mouse that I think feels better and has the buttons you'd want.

    I use a Logitech MX1000 myself.

    yeah, this is another good example of form over function taken so far that function fails to exist.

    Although the new dinovo keyboard... that's sexy and probably a nice keyboard, but I aint gonna pay whatever the hell they want for it :eek4:

    I'll stick to my natural keyboards... cuz I'm a weirdo.

    I have an apple keyboard under my desk collecting dust for the very same reason.
