    Just bought a new pro mouse and its white like the imacs!
    Any body else have a white pro mouse?

    My IT guys bought it for my Ti. The graphite would have matched a little better. makes you wonder about the new Power Macs case design!!!

    the white pro mouse has been available since the introduction of the g4imac in january. the graphite one is still sold as well, and is still distributed with new powermacs.

    I like the black mouse and the white keyboard. White keys are easier to see in the dark.

    Yes, but if you live in cold drap old Melbourne you probably have blackouts and power failures from all the storms you have and you are all backward down there so you probably have solar power tourches for lights :D:D:D:D


    IF you are up late and the light is really bright and it hurts your eyes you are proabably gonna turn it off :D

    i personally like the white mouse/keyboard, the mouse looks niiiiiiice, but m$'s keyboard is kinda really light beigish/almost whitish, but i dont like the keys on m$'s keyboard (but the palm rest is nice), and m$'s optical mice (the simple ones) look pretty white too me, but big (but light)
    cant wait to get my mac still :D

    i haven't used an Apple mouse in 3 years - I'm currently using wacom tablets on both my machines - a 12x9 Intous and a Graphire - with nice 4 button and scroll wheel cordless mice.

    And who needs to look at the keyboard to type? Still doing the hunt and peck?

    D :D

    There are also lights (on very flexible necks ;)) that plug into your USB port for when you need less room light, but still need to type. I have one from Kensington, with a blue bulb (I believe) and it works nice with my TiBook. It also worked really well with my Pro keyboard (when I still had my G4 tower :().

    >And who needs to look at the keyboard to type? Still doing the hunt and peck?

    I know I need to. I can't even type faster than 40wpm. And my accuracy is sso basd tgat yuou can;t evden... :D :D

    For the iMac and Cube I have, the black key-mouse-ware will do fine for me. For the iBook, I would like to use a white mouse.

    When I first got my Cube and used it over a year ago my father basically was astounded by a mouse that could glow in the dark.

    I still find it an excellent alternative to those smash-lit Light Cubes. :D

    ...and for those hot summer days (or to keep your lap cool while running your PowerBook G4)

    Chill out with FlyFan!

    Re: new pro mouse is white!

    I use the pro mouse at school and, while it's really kewl to watch, it lacks the extra buttons that get me through my applications much more quickly.

    Give me a Logitech Trackman Marble for just about any serious application or game. Right-handed, left-handed...it just works.

    What the hell

    I look at the keyboard sometimes but not to find all the keys

    Just becase I am used to looking at it and i can type with out it but y cant i look, it is my keyboard and i allready passsd typing.

    Anyways the pr mouse would turn into a All-star if it was exactly the same but had a scroll wheel
