    I am sorry because this post is going to literally take two seconds to answer, and i hate wasting forum space, and i have searched, but out of the results i found, i couldn't find an answer whilst skim reading.

    I am about to buy an iMac (my first mac), once leopard comes out, and i want to know, whether the mouse and keyboard will be wireless (dumb question i know), but on the apple store it simply says " mighty mouse" and "keyboard", so i didnt know whether it would be wired, or wireless.

    Plus, (even dumber question now), i realist the mighty mouse is single button???, how do you access right click functions?

    Plus, are there any other things i should be aware of before i buy my first mac?

    They will both be wired unless you opt for the wireless option (for an additional fee).

    To right-click the Mighty Mouse, you simply lift up your left finger, and click on the right side of the mouse with your right finger (just like you would with a normal mouse). To left (normal) click, you can click with both fingers, just like you would with a normal one button mouse.

    It's also very customizable to fit anyone's needs.

    when you buy your iMac you get the choice if you want it weired or wireless. there is a drop down menu when you buy.. The mighty mouse has got two buttons. just need to set the right mouse button in system prefs.

    Mighty mouse has left and right click, 360-degree scroll ball that acts as a third button, plus squeeze buttons on the side - all of which can be customized to an impressive degree - best mouse i've ever used (i have the wired version).

    the cords are very short for keyboard/mouse:
    get wireless is you are more than a foot away from the screen.
    Personally I have a love hate with the mighty mouse:
    I don't know how I lived without the center scroll when I use the old mouse on a G4 iMac, but the new center scroll gets clogged so easily it is just as fustrating because I can't clean it.

    I find the keyboard kind of small and cramped. I guess I just got used to big fat wide PC keyboards. I couldnt find any love for the Mighty mouse so bought a wireless mouse.

    Never asked before but are their other keyboards for the iMac?

    Had my wireless keyboard since 2003, used it nearly everyday, changed the batteries twice.
