    I personally hate the thing. It just seems to be functionally lacking. Right and middle clicking are a chore, and the scroll wheel just doesn't feel right.

    I also don't like the design decision to make the entire mouse one giant button. That works great if it were only a single button mouse, but like I said, it makes right-clicking a pain.

    When compared to my Logitech mice or even some Microsoft models, the Mighty Mouse is just an inferior product.

    ok thanks. i would ideally like a wireless mouse that doesnt have to take up a usb port. so it recognises the mbp's bluetooth.
    any suggestions ?

    thanks

    I'd say the best mouse is the Logitech MX Revolution (RRP 70, but you can find it cheaper); or the VX Revolution (more portable; RRP 60, but again you can find it cheaper).

    They both take up a USB port unfortunately; but they're leagues ahead of any Bluetooth mouse I've seen.

    If the cost is a little steep, you might want to look at the rest of the Logitech range... I must sound like I'm on commission because I've recommended them to so many people, but I do believe they're the best.

    Actually, Logitech Bluetooth mice don't have to take up a USB port if you don't want them to. From my experience, they work great with the Bluetooth built into the Macbooks and the USB thing merely acts as a charging base.

    Christm, you should know that you don't need to carry around a USB dongle to use a Logitech mouse

    i just bought the MX Revolution today and the thing is amazing. i returned my mighty mouse for the reasons pointed out above. i plan on getting a VX Revolution for my macbook in the future

    i always recommend logitech...though my days as a sole-mac user are only about 2 months worth, and they dont have very many products, i'm finding.

    I Love my Mighty Mouse. Even though it's BT, it's very fast and responsive with none of the "lag" I've heard many people mention with their wrieless mice. The bluetooth connectivity and low-profile design makes it very nice for taking with your laptop. without taking up too much space in a bag or getting connected. I always take mine to use while in class.

    Some people don't like the scroll ball, but I love it. Right now my MBP is getting a problem fixed and I have to use my old desktop. I absolutely hate using my old mouse with the scroll wheel after using the scroll balll. The scroll wheels just feel big and clunky by comparison.

    One last thing you can consider since you're buying a new MBP is that if you get Apple Care, any peripherals you buy from Apple at the same time, like a mouse, keyboard or monitor, will also be covered for 3 years under Apple Care. So if you're concerned with it breaking or the scrolling going bad, you can get it replaced easily.

    The logitech VX revolution is equally as portable as the BT MM. The usb dongle is actually stored inside the mouse when you're not using it.

    Edit: I realize you're in the UK, but the link above provides many many reviews and the complete specs of the mouse.

    Only 1 or 2 of the Logitech mice ARE Bluetooth.
