Hi everyone, I have had my dual G5 2.5 for just over a month and everything seems to be running fine but, I find that the apple mouse isnīt as accurate as my logitech mouse was on my PC.
Can anyone tell me if this is normal? I work alot with Photoshop and REALLY need accuracy. I've installed the Logitech drivers for Macintosh but I donīt seem to have gained alot of precision.

Any suggestions please??

Thanx
Briss

if youre using the apple pro mouse, make sure youre using a mouse pad or not using it on a surface with any shine or reflective abilities, thatll throw the mouse off. also, in system preferences>kb and mose, try slowing down the mouse speed or tracking.

Are you still using the Mac mouse? or the Logitech?

I have a Logitech usb wireless track ball that i use with my PowerMac G5 2.0 and it works just great without any particular drivers installed. Just plugged it in and there it was. Also use a Microsoft usb wireless keyboard that plugged in and worked, but you did have to use a Ms driver in order to get the Apple keys working...
