    What kind of mouse are you guys using with your macs, espcially those with ibooks, PBs, MBPs.

    I'm looking for something that's compact yet tracks accurately. The one that interests me the most is the Microsoft Intellimouse Optical Mouse because I prefer a mouse that has right click funtionality. I would get the mighty mouse, but i've been reading reviews about it that aren't so great. BTW, I will be using this with a 17" powerbook.

    Here's a pic of the mouse i might buy:

    It's 23.49, but amazon ships orders that are over 25 bucks for free :hsd: . This is another that's holding me. :o

    I have that mx610 mouse from the second post, it's great. I use the mx1000 @ work. Can't go wrong with either.

    I posted about this one: Logitech LX7 and it works great.

    Very responsive, light and comfortable.

    Logitech MX900 FTW. Bluetooth that works perfectly with the PB's internal bluetooth, no dongle needed. Unfortunately its discontinued and is very hard to find.

    Even though it's from the dark side, this one's working out great for me. Had it two weeks now.
