    Take a look at the thread below. Later in the thread there is some good discussion on the MS mouse. Everyone seems to be very pleased with the mouse. I believe you setup the extra buttons in the expose portion of the system preferences panel. People have mentioned that expose supports the extra buttons. If you are happy with the mouse's performance I would keep it.

    Yeah, I've got it and use it with my 15" PB. Other than with Expose I'm not sure you can change the functions of the buttons. Right-click maps automatically to control-click - it seems like that's what you'd want anyway. Scroll wheel works. I haven't tried mapping buttons in any games.

    i have it for the 12" PB... it's great, but like the Belkin and Logitech BT mice, the other buttons can only be used for expose... for now. I'm hopefully that mac drivers for this mouse (and the other two as well) will eventually be released, allowing the additionally buttons to be programed for other things. But I like having expose at my fingertips anyway, so i'm not complaining.
