Logitech Wireless Mouse - MacBook Pro

Im looking at getting the Logitech VX Revolution for my MacBook Pro. Some questions:
Will it even work?
Will the right click work?
Will all other features on the mouse work?
Would i just configure it using the mac system prefrences?

Thanks

Yeah, it should all work. The drivers for the revolution are Universal for the Mac platform so that means they're up to date. Right-click will work on any mouse so the revolution will handle that no problem.

All the other features should also work seeing as the software drivers are brand new.

You may have to configure it using a Logitech Control panel addition to the System Preferences, I'm not too sure though but it'll be easy.

Yes, it will work fine...once you get pasts Logitechs crappy directions on how to make the computer 'see' the mouse.
Dispite what the directions say...

hold down left mouse button.
with left mouse button depressed, turn power switch on bottom off.
with left mouse button still depressed, turn power switch on bottom on.
with left mouse button still depressed, click right mouse button 5 times.
release left mouse button.
