If it's USB, then yes absolutely. If it's PS/2, then no. Lemme check the googlescape....

Yeah, it's USB. I used a USB logitech wireless mouse/keyboard for quite while (as did my wife) with my Mac Mini before we got Macbooks. Now I have wireless bluetooth Apple mouse/keyboard, but the old logitech keyboard/mouse would work just fine. Come to think of it, I have one currently hooked up to the Mac Mini Media server in the living room.

Logitech indeed had drivers for the Mac. When I went into Mouse preferences it showed up as a proper Logitech mouse after installing them.

Either way, it'll work just fine.

Good, I'm looking at the MX 620 and just assumed it would work... didn't even think about it.

Does that mouse have the USB fob receiver or the receiver base station that has a wire that goes to the usb port?

I would avoid Logitech drivers, they are apallingly bad. Get hold of SteerMouse instead.

I totally agree...the new Logitech Control Center software caused multiple random kernel panics on my MB. I also suggest you use Steermouse this software is just the bomb.
