    Mouse button clunky?
    I' bought a G5 iMac a month back and decided to buy a newiBook today - 14" G4 model - I'm finding the one button mouse to be very clunky and makes an irritatingly loud noise when depressed - is this normal on these?

    Also - where the heck is the delete button....?!!

    Thanks

    Yep, that is pretty normal that the clicker makes a clunk noise. And the delete button is your backspace button, which is called the delete button; it's located underneath the eject button.

    thanks ...annoying that clunking....only had it hooked up for 30 mins and it's getting on my nerves....! On the plus side it detected my airport express station immediately and has my broadband up & running...

    Don't worry, you'll get use to the clunkiness. It will be second nature in no time.

    if you hit the Funtion(FN) and the delete key it wil work as the DELETE key on a pc and delete to the right of the cursor.

    you can always get the apple "pro mouse" the white/clear one... i use that because i have the same hatred towards the trackpad-mouse that you do.

    Or if you have the bluetooth module - get the sweet apple wireless mouse!

    Btw: You can use any USB mouse with your mac, 2-button pc mice will work as well...
