    i like it. the only con is that sometimes the wheels on the inside get dirty and affects the ball movement. other than that, i'll never go back to standard mice. i really want a bluetooth trackball

    I have a G5 at work and at home, really nice mice. They just fit my hand well, and with the weights I've got it just how I like it.

    BT Mighty Mouse

    Maybe not the most ergonomic mouse out there, but I like it.

    I've got this. it's too responsive, doesn't connect wirelessly, and squeaks a lot.

    At home, I have one of the first generation Logitech optical mice, and it still works. At work I have a Microsoft one, but the Logitech has a better tactile feel (and is worn in nicely).

    I take back my previous statement, unless someone can help me..

    The logitech setpoint software does not work on Mac, so basically all you get is left/right click, and scroll. None of the other buttons are customizable, and they all do abasolutely nothing on a Mac.. is this how it is? Or can I change it?

    Have both VX Nano and MX revolution, although I dont know if the MX works but my VX works "well" with macbook. (Not as good as in windows, a reason why im pretty pissed that i spent almost 80 dollars).

    If I have time I guess i install the MX software.
