You can always just plug your Logitech MX Revolution into your Mac and use it too. Just about every mouse and keyboard that works on PCs works on Macs too. Even Microsoft"s creme de la creme of mice, the Arc Touch works on Mac.

Ya. That's always an option. I just figure that then I lose out on all the "gesture" features in OSX. Mind you, maybe a person could use the touch pad AND their favorite mouse.

Being a Mac Pro user, ant back to the Mighty Mouse. The metal base of the Magic Mouse seems to have problems connecting at times through the metal case of the Mac Pro. As for the keyboard, they just look a little to start. If you are any sort of a touch typist no problems at all even for my sausage fingers to match my 100kg frame!

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

I found myself pressing the pad with my thumb and then doing a "light" drag with my finger. However, other than that, I really like it.
I tried to go all-Trackpad on my iMac and this is the reason I started using a mouse again. Could not safely control dragging files and folders. Now I use them both together.

Longtime Windows, then onto slippery slope with iPod/iTunes in 2006, then Apple TV, iPad, iMac, iPhone and finally rejuvenated a discarded MacBook. Happy camper.

I have to move my Magic Mouse about 4 inches across my mouse-mat to get from lower left of my screen to upper right. But then I admit that it's a 52" plasma screen. lol

The trouble with letting people like me loose on the interweb with a debit card is that I now have the latest Mac Mini Aluminium running at 2.4 GHz with 8 GB of DDR3 RAM, 320 HDD and OS X 10.6.5 all wired up to a 70" LED screen ...... And not the faintest idea of how to use it.
QUOTE Thanks
