I have the same mouse. I've always been a logitech fan, as I've had had a few bad experiences with Microsoft mice. I love the MX700, its comfortable, tho slightly heavy, it has a recharging base thing, which is awesome. The main setback is that its chunky with the recharge/reciever, so it isn't the best mouse to carry around. If you want to buy a mouse now, get the bluetooth mx900, but if you carry your computer around a lot, u should reconsider.

Sonicj, are the silver markings on the buttons wearing off on yours :eek: ?

Logitech MouseMan Optical Wireless. Pretty good. Both on the desk and on the road.

When I get an Apple(still undecided on which) I am going to get a mouse from macmice.com, probably just the corded model since I probably won't get internal bluetooth and don't want the external bluetooth thing.

I use the Targus damn small mouse. Thats not the real name, but it really is damn small. I think its called the Targus Optical Mini Mouse. I want a Logitech MX900, but my pockets are empty.
