    I wonder what the battery life will be like on that one. Apple's current BT mouse, from what I heard, has a horrible battery life.

    The mightymouse looks good and has a great scroll mechanism. Other then that, I can't stand the one I have and it has been comissioned to back up duty.

    My Logitech MX 610 is way better then the MM.



    Too bad no one has ever invented rechargable AAs. :eek4:

    Everything about apple computers has always been exception and ahead of the curve....other than the mice, which seem to be about 20 years behind...

    One-button mouse still works for me. Using quick keys is a tiny bit faster than right-clicking and being able to click with other fingers or your whole hand puts less strain on just one hand/wrist.

    Gday.

    A while ago someone mentioned a version of XP available to download which basically comprises of the bare essentials to run windows.
    Does anyone remember which version this was and where could I download it from?

    Cheers

    I love my wired might mouse and i ordered the BT one immediately. I'm supposed to get it Friday. I'll keep you guys updated.

    Its an incredible mouse, it just takes time to get used to the small 360 degree scrollwheel. the side buttons are awesome too. i have them set to do my dashboard and the center click to do my expose.

    Yeah, not much of a fan of it myself. Then again I haven't liked an apple interface device since the days of their old beige keyboards and mice (which were still sluggish to me).
