    I'm intrigued by the logitech vx revolution. Hearing mixed reports both loving and hating it. What are you guys using? I am looking for a wireless mouse that works :x:

    Logitech TrackMan Wheel (trackball mouse)

    I have one on every computer. My mouse sits on the edge of my couch so I don't have anywhere to use an optical mouse.

    Best mouse I have ever owned. (so I bought 3 more). Simple, easy, efficient, can be used anywhere. Sometimes I lay sideways watching tv and sit it against my chest. Convenient as hell........

    During the every now and then you could be using a trackball. Worth the effort....... I can't stand a regular mouse anymore. Like when you quit using Windows PC's and went to MAC OSX..... it was ok then, but now everything is so much better.....

    I can't live without those.

    I use the trackpad on my MBP... It's usually in my lap when i use it, so there's no room for a mouse.

    Going to pick up a VX whenever I get the chance, let you know then. :big grin: Right now Using the MX Rev and best mouse I ever used.

    I tried the mighty mouse and it just isnt ergonomic for me.

    Microsft Intelimouse Explorer 3.0

    Most comfortable mouse ever, and it works well too. I'll get a wireless mouse when they make bluetooth mice. I've got the Apple BT keyboard and love it, but hate the design of the mighty mouse. If logitech would make the m610 or w/e mouse bluetooth then I'd grab that in an instant.

    Logitech MX900 bluetooth

    I love it. You don't have to plug in an USB receiver and it also came with rechargeable battery.
