    Apple-Branded Mouse Mat
    Hi everyone, I'm new to these forums having bought my first mac (an imac) a couple of weeks ago. Its amazing! I was just wondering, do Apple make their own mousemat for optical mice, as I can't find any on the apple store online. Does anyone know?

    Thanks

    Have never seen an Apple mouse mat but every other shape and description lol!

    Have you ever tried a mouse mat with the gel wrist rest? They are superb at preventing RSI.

    Apple used to give free mousepads to people who turned in their warranty cards, but they haven't done this since they moved to optical mice. Optical mice generally don't need mousepads.

    EXCELLENT! There are some very nice Apple branded mouse pads there. Lots of other clever Apple branded stuff too - coffee mugs, shirts, hats... What a great site. Thanks for posting this.

    A case of two nations divided by a common language. In the UK they are mouse mats. No sign of any mouse pads over here - Apple branded or not.
    Experience teaches you to recognise a mistake when you make it again.
