I talked to an apple employee who said that the reason that a wireless bluetooth mighty mouse is not out is because it is sensor based. Since the mighty mouse is all sensory based it eats up to much battery power to fast.. so they have no way of making it wireless at this point.. im sure they are working on it though. It will probably be a while though

Eh, I'm not a fan of the Mighty Mouse, perfectly fine with my one button, and my PowerPC processor...

I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.

Yeah, the side buttons on the MM suck...
I'm constantly accidently activating them during demos at work...

Well Apple should design a nice docking station for it and make the mighty mouse chargeable, like the Logitech MX Laser Series. The problem is only, how do you do it the apple way, meaning without cluttering the desk...

i found the MM to me more appealing in aesthetics than in fuction. in other words, it looked pretty but didn't work that well. (at least for me) :p

i took it back after a few days and went back to my standard five button.

From a G4 400MHz to an Intel Mac Mini to iMac Core Duo to a Macbook Pro 2.6GHz.............gotta love Apple!

The only con for me is the absolutely way too short cord. It's just not very pracitical for ibooks. Why can't it have just a few more inches?

The Mighty mouse's scroll ball is too tiny and mushy to me; I much prefer a regular wheel or the scrolling trackpad on my PowerBook. There are also several nice third-party Bluetooth mice with full-sized scroll wheels which I'd rather have than a Bluetooth Mighty.

I also like the current Bluetooth mouse quite a bit. Very simple and functional.

I love my logitech MX518. I may upgrade to MX1000 some time if wireless is that important to me. I have the bluetooth apple mouse but I like having all of the buttons to make things quicker

There's much better mice out there for much less money. The MM is so inferior to many other offerings.
