Just thought I'd share with you all the fact that my new mouse arrived this morning. Its a Logitech MX700 Cordless Optical...

The only problem I'm having is trying to remember to use it for anything other than a left click - I'm upgrading from a single button Apple Pro mouse!! My left hand still keeps making for the keyboad to hold the ctrl key down for a right click.

Apart from that it seems like a very nice mouse. Its certainly very comfortable to hold, no good for left handers though. Its a little bit heavier than I'm used to, seeing as it contains batteries, but I kind of like that, it adds a bit more control. At least the batteries are NiMH Very Happy

Anyone else using one of these?

Ah, you decided to follow my advice: dump Mac mice! Why on earth Apple haven't realised that you need two buttons on a mouse beets me Laughing.

yeah I agree...though the mice that come with iMacs are quite cool - to click you just push the entire body down

My first experience with that kind of mouse was bad. I was trying to move the mouse, while reaching over in front of someone - I ended up clicking which totally baffled me Laughing. Why is it an advantage to be able to click by using the whole body?

That's one nice mouse. Just a little more money and I'm planning on getting this which is a mouse similar to yours, plus the cordless keyboard Smile

It'll be a nice addition to my computer with its Pre-Win95 keyboard Razz

How does it suck? I find lack of cable much better.

I don't think benn said it sucks because it has no cable Wink

My grudge against most wireless mice/keyboards is power: I don't want to have to replace batteries so rechargeable is what I would want (and I wouldn't want to recharge them everyday either). But this is all wishes since I don't have any wireless input devices... Smile

TBH, I don't mind using batteries. I've got 4 rechargable ones, so while I'm using two, I can have the other 2 ready to charge up. Smile

Can't say I've ever noticed any lag, on either my mouse or keyboard.
