    Hi there,

    I've been looking at getting this mouse (http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/products/details/GB/EN,CRID=2135,CONTENTID=10917) because I've read really good reviews and it's highly customisable. But the small print says it's not mac compatible.
    I know the mouse's basic functions will work because it's USB, but I was unsure if it meant that I wouldn't be able to customise the button functions. I assumed it meant that I wouldn't be able to.

    But then I was just reading this thread (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=3192383#post3192383) and someone said that OSX can customise upto 96 different buttons on a mouse. So I'm just wondering if OSX will let me use the mouse and configure it, depite logitech saying it's not mac-compatible.

    I hope that is the case because it's a nice looking mouse.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Si

    I don't know if it's compatible, but my room mate has that mouse and it's very nice.

    Nice one. Thanks for the replies.

    I will probably end up getting it as it's very swish.

    You might want to consider getting the Logitech V270, I have it and its a great little mouse. It's got a simple interface and doesn't have all those buttons you want to customize tho.

    Second that if you don't need all the buttons. The 270 is a very adequate rodent... One thing to consider is the adapter that plugs into usb. if it is straight, it gets in the way. the 270 has a straight one.

    I've look at that one, but I do really need the buttons.

    Well, I say need, it's more want. I've used muti-button mice before and like not having to touch the keyboard when I dont have to. I have a pretty standard 3-button mouse at the moment so am using hotcorners (I never knew how good these were- I thought they would be really annoying and I would keep tripping them my mistake, but not so far!)

    The buttons for forward/back in Safari and a spotlight button would be cool.
