    Which 2 button mouse to use?
    I recently switched over -- purchased a nice G5 over Christmas and love it. However I sure miss the right-click mouse feature of PCs.

    Can someone suggest a good 2-button Mac mouse and where to get it? I don't need wireless. I do want another optical mouse, not a track ball.

    Thanks.

    I have the Logitech MX700 and love it. I would recommend any Logitech mice for your new G5.

    Also there is one called "The Mouse" which you could probably google that looks very very promising and it'll probably be my next mouse that I purchase.

    I like MacAlly mice in addition to LogiTech. I stay away from Kensington stuff after hearing about some of their business practices.

    MacMice.com has a nice 2-button mouse that looks similar to Apple's mouse, if that's important to you. Otherwise, Microsoft (yeah, i know) makes decent, cheap mice. And Logitech is good too

    They basically sue the "little guys" to death if they come out w/ a product similar the Kensington's. I don't know if they do this across all product lines, but they definitely do this w/ the various security cable products (which make up the majority of their profits). Smaller companies simply don't have the resources to be involved in litigation, whereas Kensington can usually get revenues from other products.

    I use Logitech. Highly recommended. I got one that was two buttons with a scrollwheel in the middle. I plugged it in, and it just worked on Panther. No updates, no drivers to install. I didn't even have to configure anything!

    I would love to hear some reviews from people here that have already purchased it.. how's the software that comes with it? I do currently use a 4 button mouse with a mousewheel.. it would be hard to give up the extra buttons though

    I have had my iMac for just over two weeks. I lasted a week with the one button mouse. I did a lot of reading and research. I found the best mouse for my needs was the LogitechMX500. It fits my hand nicely, has two buttons on the left side for going forward and back in the browser (I'm right handed). It is a wired mouse, which I trust more than a wireless. I don't want the occasional frustration of a pointer bouncing around. Also has a scroll wheel and buttons to scroll up and down automatically and a button to change applications. I'm a happy surfer with my Logitech!
