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.

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

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...
