    Hi,

    got a MBP yesterday and all is going well but when i am at home i like to use a mouse, but im not sure what one to go for.

    I've always had logitechs and I saw the new logitech MX Revolution today and was tempted to buy it, but people rave about the MX1000, which i think is discontinued. Any make would do, looking for quality.

    Money is not an issue and I am not a graphics person so I dont need a tablet, but I would like a powerful mouse, was thinking about bluetooth but there seems to be too many problems with waking them up.

    Any help would be great.

    I tried out a Logitech MX revolution at bestbuy a while back. Felt awesome. $99 is steep. i would love to see in real action, attached to a computer. I want a bluetooth, so i might wait. But I agree looks like a great mouse.

    I'm a fan of the Bluetooth Mighty Mouse, myself.

    I use a Logitech MX510 gamer mouse on my desktop PC, I just picked up a simple microsoft optical mouse ($30 wired) feels good in the hand and it feels sturdy.

    The Logitech MX 1000 and the MX Revolution are BY FAR the best mice out there. I use both.

    I have the MX Revolution's little brother, the VX revolution, and I absolutely love it. It isn't as big (or expensive) but the features are great. I have set up application specific settings for several apps for the various buttons. Overall I have been very happy with the mouse.

    While that is true in some cases their mice really suck. Get the VX Revolution, you will be happy with it since you will not experience any lag.

    Update

    Hi ive decided to go with the MX Revolution,

    but you and your american prices, lol, her in the uk, in the shops the same mouse is $150!

    I was lucky to get it for $110.

    I know someone will reply saying they can prob get it cheaper somewhere else, but I'm just happy I made a decision.

    Stu

    i bought and returned this... it's NOT fully mac compatible, and it feels cheap... the (subtle via picture, obvious when u hold it) design on top of it completely violated apple's simplicity style
