    I was wondering if anyone knew weather this mouse would work on a Mac. Everything I've seen about just talks about the PC.

    Yes, I'm saving for one. Apparently the G7 (wireless) is better but the G5 is cheaper. All you need is USB overdrive

    it works VERY well. I bought mine after my mighty mouse crapped out. Wait for newegg to put it on sale, because randomly they will knock off 20 bucks.

    they are exactly the same in terms of refresh rate and dpi resolution. The only call you have to make is if you want wireless or wired.

    Good point, by better I did mean wireless though. The G5 just has a weight cartridge in place of a battery. So the G5 is more configurable. Some people say the weights are stupid though.

    Honestly at first glance I didn't know if the weights would be worth even my time to put them in. But, after a couple months of use, I really like it, I like my mouse a little heavier than the mighty mouse because it gives me a little more feel. But, at the same time, I can understand the idea of having a wireless version of the mouse, however, in my case, the wireless was not necessary and the weights were an added bonus...
