Going to be dual booting and/or running a windows 7 virtual machine.

What moust should I get? I'm not familiar with Apple mice for laptops. Can I get a run-of-the-mill 2 button bluetooth mouse from logitech and use it with both WIndows 7 and OS X Lion?

If not -- what kind of mouse do you guys/gals suggest? I'd prefer to have one mouse for both operating systems.

All help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Use whatever you like. OS X will use any mouse just fine.


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). Also advise us if you have any antivirus or "cleaning" software installed on your Mac. If you are using MacKeeper, you are hereby advised to uninstall it.
