I will be purchasing a Pro17" these days, I have never used a Mac before, I hope it is easy to use. Basically the reason im purchasing a Mac is b/c i can still use Microsoft with bootcamp, but, I want to just use the Tiger OS becasue of what i heard, there are 0 viruses, more stable, faster OS.. etc etc..

What would be a good Apple mouse for this? also, if i use Windows, do all mac mouses just have 1 click on them? :rolleyes:

Can i use non mac mouses on the Tiger sistem?

Thanks!

I like the Mighty Mouse a lot, I really have no problems with it.

But if you're looking into going for a non-Apple mouse, then most of Logitech's mice are Mac compatible: http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/pr...categoryid=428

Hope this helped.

Edit: Mighty Mouse does have a right click/scroll wheel.

I have a wireless bluetooth Logitech mouse. It was 5 bucks more than the wireless mighty mouse. It's silver and matches the MBP PERFECTLY. Like I said, it's a Bluetooth mouse so it doesn't take up a USB port. This is an awesome feature. I highly recommend this to you. It has Right Click, Left Click, and a Scroll Wheel. It's really the perfect mouse for the MBP in my opinion.

I think he wants a right click button and a scroll wheel though.

Yes, it does. If you mean Left and Right click, then yes it does. More info at http://www.apple.com/mightymouse

When I was playing with my friend's, I couldn't get it to right click on anything. I asked him and he said it didn't have it. ??

the mighty mouse is a really good mouse, if a bit pricey. it also has a cord, which you might not like. but for a new switcher, it's nice because it has the familiar right click..

Another vote for the Logitech Bluetooth - I've got a V270. Works straight off the internal bluetooth so no plugs to steal precious ports. It's a good weight, comfortable to use and no annoyances with the sensor unlike some MS and IBM optical mice I've used. Still running on the bundled batteries after 3 months of daily use too.
