    hows the mightymouse working for you?

    I've heard it's not very comfortable and you really have to reach for the right click.
    :dunno:

    I'm thinking about getting one now just because of how many batteries my mouse has been eating lately.

    Noice purchase. Just some advice about asking for opinions of ram in the mach shack, don't do it, because a 5 page debate about ram will ensue.

    i'm really liking mighty mouse. makes moving from pc much easier with the secondary click. plus the expose side buttons is nice too when moving around the OS. I give it 4/5. only thing that i don't like about it, is i'm right handed and my usb ports are on the left side of the ibook.

    The 12" ibook is a great little computer. I've actually been thinking about picking one up for couch / kitchen surfing.

    No worries, the 12" ibook is still a great computer! You'll be very happy with it! :bigthumb:

    To resize your terminal window, grab the bottom right hand corner of the window and drag it to the size you need.
