Hi,
I wanted to know if anyone here recommends this mouse? I heard that it is quite slow and sometimes blocks due to bad bluetooth connection. Is this true? Should i get the wireless mouse or just go for the normal one.
Btw, im using a Powerbook g4

I've got the Apple Wireless Mouse and it's amazingly cool - it just looks it and feels it. I can get it to work from other rooms in my house (not sure why that's useful).

Connection is great, very responsive, works well with the OS. Best of all, unlike many mice, it has an off swtich that also covers up the eye.

I was thinking about the apple bloothooth mouse, but I have this thing against one button...? I also 'need' a scroll-wheel. So until Apple begins making mice with two buttons - I'll never buy one from them.

Well, officaly there is, but it's about 0.0000000001 of a second. If I stuck a wire on it and told you it was a wired mouse you would believe me.

I called my bluetooth mouse 'capsule', because it looks like one. And the computer's 'sleeka' because it's just so.. sleek (shiny new powerbook )
