    I plan to pick up a 2.4 20'' iMac this week. Was wondering what would be a nice two-button mouse to get to replace the mighty mouse. I have a macbook already, so this would be my first mac desktop.. but need two buttons for photo post processing. No gaming.. oh and optical/corded would work fine.

    Any suggestions?

    the mighty mouse sucks...

    The right click does not work if your left finger is on the mouse. There is in fact not two buttons, but an intellegence that knows if you were pressing the mouse with your index finger or your middle finger, and it hardly works.

    Not to mention the tiny ball they call a scroll wheel. after 6 months of use, it stopped working properly and would cause great frustration.

    I have been using a cheap dell mouse ever since, and I have not had a single problem.

    I have a mighty mouse and I like it. :dunno:

    it's not that hard to just pick up your left finger to right click.
    true, you shouldn't have to, but oh whales.

    did you try cleaning the scroll ball with rubbing alcohol?

    mighty mouse is 4 button, but the 2 side buttons are rather useless IMO. Hard to use them.

    Logitech MX310! I think it was like 30 bucks, and that was a couple years ago. 5 buttons and a scroll wheel, and it's been working great since i bought it

    If it was bluetooth, I would've bought it instead of a mighty mouse. :hs:
