    Say I just purchased an Apple Wireless Mouse via eBay (hey now $31 ain't bad) and the right "squeeze" place (or whatever it is named) is depressed a little more than the left. Is this sorta thing normal?

    It feels kinda odd to me. Other than that the mouse is perfect.

    i dont have this problem on mine, at least not severly (i dont have it in front of me right now) but i do think that one side is indented a bit more, as long as the moust works fine i wouldnt worry about it, and hey you paid half of what i did for mine ;)

    Cool beans, yeah it is only slightly affected. Just a minor irritation that I'll probably get used to in due time.

    just out of curiosity, do you actually use the those side 'holders'? i hardley do, which is why it is probably a non-issue for me

    they are there to pick up the mouse right? i never really saw any point to them myself :eek:

    When you click you're suppose to squeeze together the sides. That way if you're doing something like scrolling down and run out of deskspace then you can still have a click depressed while the mouse is in the air. Takes some practice though. I have a fairly small mousepad so I use it often

    Mine

    Mine are about the same depression (the left maybe is pressed in a bit more - but that may be because my thumb is stronger than my finger), and i use them a reasonable ammount for dragging files and the like across my 17" iMac screen. The the ebay seller was a bit heavy-handed!
    Apple's built quality is usuall 9-10.
    P.S. - A mousepad? What's that? Don't think I've used one since i got an optical mouse 'bout 5 years ago!
