    17" iMac G4 800MHz 1GB RAM
    Apple Pro Mouse
    Alright, I figured I would give my Apple Pro Mouse a spin. It works quite nicely, and I like the feel of it.

    Man when I opened the box when I first got my iMac, I was like "What is this?!?!?". With this I went out and bought a Logitech Optical ( I buy ONLY Logitech mice ). So I've been spoiled with right clicking and scoll wheels. I started learning all the keyboard shortcuts, because I have been using my iBook a lot, so I figured, I could hack it.

    I think I like it better The only thing that will take me a while to get used to, is not having a scroll wheel. Anybody have any tips/tricks for scrolling with this mouse? Are there any apps out there that have some sorta catch so that I can scroll with it somehow?

    I have a Logitech mouse also, it's the one with the big red ball.

    Anyways, I didn't really like the Apple Pro Mouse either, but now I'm using it, I'm learning the shortcuts plus if I want to right-click holding down the Ctrl button isn't that hard.

    The scrolling thing is different and one way of doing it is to move the mouse over the the side of the window and manually scrolling down :-p

    The only real "benefit" can be summed-up by the text printed on the bottom: Designed by Apple in California

    yah, the Apple Pro mouse looks sweet, the clear mouse/button with the white inside and the gray apple logo, looks so sweet and so nice next to the clear keyboard :-)
