    It barely works at all. I wouldn't suggest it for gaming.

    Its pretty much useless for games where it requires quick presses of the right button (e.g. to throw a grenade) because you need to lift your left finger.

    As much as i love apple, I would suggest buying a third party mouse, mice have never really been apples strong suit

    You know what... I use my Mighty Mouse every single day, for about 2-3 hours at a time, and i've never experienced a single problem.

    The scroll ball is like it was on day one, and i have absolutely no problems lifting my index finger to right click. It really isn't difficult!

    Try the Mighty Mouse at a store, or maybe a friends mouse! See for yourself!

    Don't take everyone else's word for it!

    i'm not so sure if bluetooth mouse works under bootcamp at this point... i could be wrong, but just try to see if you can left-click and right-click at the same time, then you'll know what to choose

    I couldn't even get the mouse to work in the apple store...and that was wired :confused:

    But, if you're after a gaming mouse I suggest the logitech range. I personally have the mx1000, very comfortable mouse and responsive. Oh and awesome battery life.

    Though, most "pro" gamers would probably go "OMG you n00b wireless mouse's suck"...or something along those lines. But how nice it may be, I'd keep away from the mighty mouse

    We have a thousand threads on Apples different mice and how they are rather poor. We need to have a serious discussion as why Apple just keeps getting it mice wrong.

    It's the "form before function" attitude.

    I've mostly used Logitech products since the early 1990s. They care about functionality first and looks second. Kensington also has some so-so products but they don't seem to care about form or function.
