I have a iMac G4 Superdrive can I use a standard PC USB connected mouse with scroll wheel? I hate using page down and the arrow keys to navigate.

A non-Apple mouse is fine. I use a Logitech BT mouse and it works great.

I want a mouse that look as close to the real Apple mouse as possible, I'm leaning towards this one.

Any mouse but if wireless etc make sure you can get drivers for it.

Logitech, Microsoft, Laser etc all work well.
