Apple sells a two button/scroll wheel Mighty Mouse. It has gotten mixed reviews; some people love it, some people hate it. I would suggest going to the apple store and checking it out if you get the chance.

I own one, and I love it. I would, however, prefer if it was bluetooth.

Microsoft make a nice small USB mouse, scroll wheel, and two buttons. Optical, seen it in White, Black and Silver of which the latter I own. Good mouse and solid, had mine for about three years now.

I use a small wireless bluetooth mouse from Norwood Micro. Biggest benefit? The batteries are rechargable in the mouse, and they give you a cable to plug into a USB port to charge! Will sync right up natively with the mini after pressing the Discover button.

For the wireless keyboard, I went with the Apple. I like the feel of the keys, and it's heavy even though it doesn't look like it should be.

I am a gamer, and the Microsoft Optical IntelliMouse is the finest mouse I have ever used.

I just got a mighty mouse, and I am really liking it. I'm worried the scroll ball will get dirty/stuck, anyone have this problem?

I've got the apple bluetooth & mouse and like them both. The other day I was in the applestore playing with the mighty mouse and was really tempted to buy one. Love the scrollball but don't know about the right-clicking.

I use a Logitech mx laser bluetooth mouse. It works great, although they don't support it with software, so there are no button programs.

For the keyboard, I would just go with the apple one.
