    Logitech mx 1000 or Apple Bluetooth Mighty Mouse ?

    Would like to save some money, but also want an excellent wireless mouse. Really don't care if bluetooth or RF

    Any reason to pass up $39.00 Logitech MX 1000 for a $69.00 Mighty Mouse?

    Logitech all the way, i have MX900 which i picked up when it was like $90. Definitely the best mouse I have used, it has lots of buttons that i like to use for expose.

    im in a similar situation. Im very tempted to get the BT MM, but people keep on recommending the logitech mice. If i got the logitech, would it work with my MacBook's built-in infra-red reciever? If it doesn't im getting a MM.

    I have the MX1000 and love it. The only reason why I would want to switch to the mighty mouse is because it matches so nicely. Other than that I think the logitech is more comfortable and easier to use in every way.

    Mighty Mouse FTW! It's so nicer to have in your hand, and is more precie IMO. I also think the buttons are placed nicelier, and though the MX1000 has more buttons, I still say MM.:D

    Geeze, we're in a totally different price structure it seems.

    The wirless Mighty Mouse here is $109, the MX1000 is about $149.

    The cheapest wireless laser mouse I've found is MS's mobile wireless laser mouse for $99 - the BTMM doesn't seem like such a bad deal in comparison.

    I am getting very fed up with my Logitech S530 keyboard, so I might be moving back to my Apple keyboard and getting a new BT Mightymouse

    MX1000, much better build quality and no need for scroll wheel maintenance unlike the Mighty Mouse. There's also a learning curve with the Mighty Mouse as you have to lift your left-finger to right-click which is a killer in games.

    I'd say the mx1000, its a great mouse, feels really nice in your hand and many buttons which you can customise for what you want them to do,

    for example i use the application switch on the side as a middle button to open new tabs and such purley because it feels more natural using this way

    Customer service is also great my scroll wheel stopped working as a button, phoned up and i had a replacement at my house withing 3 days.

    I have a wired mighty mouse and a logitech mx700 and the logitech blows the mighty mouse out of the water.

    Mighty Mouse/Keyboard, the ONLY thing I can't stand from Apple...I picked up the Intel Core Duo's 20" iMac & MacBook on June and upgraded to Wireless BenQ and Logitech LV400 Dual Laser Mouse...!!!

    if you're left handed, which many mac users i know are, you're probably going to find yourself angry for buying pretty much any logitech mouse.

    BTMM all the way. it's by far the best mouse i've ever used, sod all this 10 button carp. :rolleyes:

    Logitech MX1000 - no comparison to me. I can't stand the flat feel of the Apple mouse (any of them) and the scroll ball is so far back on the MM that it is painful to use. I had a Logitech MX700 and loved it. I now have a Logitec MX518 and it is the best mouse I have ever used bar none.

    Good point about left and right handers!
    But I have to disagree about the buttons, the more the merrier.

    Quick point about the mighty mouse, if (like me) you rest your fingers on the mouse while using it you may have problems training yourself to use the mighty mouse as having your left/right button finger resting while clicking the other messes up the touch sensitive buttons (in my experience, i can't be the only one that does this?).

    I am left handed, but never used mice with my left hand. But then I think all mice I ever had were symmetric (including the logitech ones). So I don't use the mouse right handed because of the shape of the mouse.

    Anyways, there are symmetric logitech mice.

    Logitech hands down. Very comftable, firm, good grip, no strain on the hand, lots of customizable buttons in OS X as well, looks very good with a pro apple machine (not so great with a white consumer product).

    Another vote for the Logitech. It truly is the better mouse. Hands down.

    You should have made a poll :)

    and logitech MX-1000 without a doubt. It is a brilliant mouse, accurate and comfortable. I just wish they had a blue tooth version.
