I am on my fourth MacBook Air since 2008 and have never found the need for a mouse.

You'll be better off with an average USB/bluetooth mouse.
Hey, speak for yourself.

I use a magic mouse 8+ hours every day and I love it - especially with an add-on app like MagicPrefs, which lets you define custom gestures.

BT mouse.

Any of them really. Logitech M310 works really well and not expensive.

Trackpad is good enough by itself for most tasks. I also use a magic mouse for my IMac - I'll agree with others that the magic mouse takes some getting used to, but now I like it a lot.

Thanks for the comments, I will most likely use trackpad but may get mouse later on depending and to make the trackpad last longer.

I've never liked or got to grips with the trackpads on PC laptops, but the MBA trackpad works well with it's numerous gestures.

However, I still invested in a mouse because for gaming.

Was going to get the Apple mouse but read about the flaws with it's trackball.

Ended up getting this cheap and cheerful one:

Works well imo.

I quite like my Magic Mouse as well, but I'm a claw guy so ergonomic mice do nothing for me anyways.

I've mostly transitioned my desktop use to a Magic Trackpad these days though..

Another thing is that I believe you lose the ability to smooth scroll if you plug in an external mouse. That's a deal killer for me

Smooth scroll works great with magic mouse.
