    Will the Mac mouses (mice) whatever....work with Windows XP.

    I'm gonna go buy a computer game, but I need a mouse. And I'd prefer to buy a mac mouse but only if it works with XP as well (cause i'll need it to play the game).

    Yeah an Apple mouse will work with a PC. You'll only have left-click though. :hsugh:

    its a pain in the ass to right click, even with the mighty mouse. Its very specific.

    I'd reccomend just buying a microsoft mouse. I love the one I have, MS intelipoint mouse, its usb and optical, cost like 10 bucks and the software is totally configureable.

    same. :hs: i use the logitech mx1000 (i think) my only complaint is that it uses a docking station so it's not truly wireless imo! But now logitech has a bunch of mice with the little usb adapter so i'd look into one of those!

    I purchased the apple bt keyboard and even that is a joke. I feel like i have to put effort just to type. :hs: Probably going to put it on ebay...

    I will second the mighty mouses lack of ease when trying to "right click" something. It will keep on thinking you are left clicking until you take your pointer finger completely off the mouse. It's pressure sensitive.
