Mac didn't have a right click button since day one. Apple advances all kinds of technology, but when someone else comes up with something better, like the right click functionality, Apple refuses to incorporate it into its basic design. One mouse button is old technology. The right click button is a must.

I think it's safe to say that if it were to be added to the Mac line-up, a gushing flow of PCers would finally switch to Mac. It stopped me for ages, until I had enough with Window Vista.
I bought my first Mac, a Powerbook, 6 years ago, and initially I was a little annoyed at the lack of a right-click button. But I adapted quickly and eventually it stopped bothering me. In fact, the whole idea that it cold be a deal killer seemed rather silly in retrospect.

Flash forward 3 years, and I'm using my wife's Dell laptop. I was constantly hitting the right-click button by mistake and man it was pissing me off. It was at that time that I fully realized and accepted the simplicity of the design of Apple's laptops.

Flash forward another 3 years and I have the new Macbook Pro with the multi-touch trackpad. It's nothing short of sheer genius and the usability of this trackpad far exceeds anything else out there. You can left-click, right-click, and scroll all with one button, which is the pad itself.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
