    Well, since tommorow Apple is updating it's "Pro" offerings, do you think, maybe just maybe that they will update there Pro Wireless Mouse to a Mighty Mouse since that is their "highest end" pro mouse? I'd love that to go with my iBook, I'm getting sick of the regular 1 button Bluetooth mouse with worst of all, no scrolling :(

    I don't like my bluetooth mouse. I ALWAYS use my $15 Microsoft scroll wheel mouse. Dual click + scroll wheel plus no lag = speedy video edits

    Oh man, I hope so. I have a logitech Bluetooth. MX900 I think. But the range is so bad, it's annoying. If the mouse is more than 3 or 4 feet from my powerbook, it doesn't work. My Apple Pro wireless keyboard works anywhere in the room! I like all the buttons on my Logitech tho. I have all the expose features mapped. It's nice.

    I sure hope so. Since they are packaging them with iMacs it only makes sense.

    I'd probably get one right away, as I plan on getting a dual-core Power Mac within the month. :D I think it's very possible it could happen tomorrow.

    A laser Mighty Mouse would be of interest to gamers and pros-as both MS and Logitech offer them.

    What would the laser option do to the battery life? I know Logitech has a charger setup for their laser offering.

    Still, I'd probably buy one either way.

    Big kiss for Steve if he does the "friggin lazer" in the BT MM. That would really rock.

    You would probably be right about the appeal to gamers if the MM did not have a fatal draw-back (for gaming purposes). I'm not sure if it is intentionally crippled, or if it is an architectural drawback, but the MM cannot be used to simultaneously click more than one button*. Believe me, I was stunned when I realized this during a game of Halo (where I struggled at tossing grenades with the second button because my index-finger was resting on the first).

    *You can click-hold the side buttons and subsequently use one of the top buttons. Coincidentally, you cannot click the side buttons if the mouse is not resting on a surface (while in mid-air for example). Try assigning Expose to it to see what I mean.

    I really hope that they do come out with a bluetooth mighty mouse because I will order one with my new power mac that will hopefully be out today.

    I kinda knew there wasnt one comming. Cos the new imac's they are pushing the wired version. I think Stevey boy jobbsy will milk us a little with the crappy wired version before he brings the BT out. Apple is rich as it is, come on man bring it out NOW!

    I'll never purchase another Mighty Mouse for the life of me. Bluetooth or not, if my mouse quits working properly after a few weeks of use, I've completely lost faith in whatever company's made them.
