    Call me crazy, but I have a hankering for one. I wondered if anyone had a hockey puck mouse they would like to sell, in the colour sceme as this one (graphite):

    Sorry if this is a spammy post, guys. eBay is a bit thin on them. My reasons for wanting one are sketchy, by the way.

    Thanks, but I think the graphite will work better with Apple's whiteness. :p

    Hi Steve. I used to use them in college and I miss a wheel mouse. I see their problems, but even so. I could never move them in a straight line!

    Get 1000 paperclips and slowly straighten them out then!

    How about spending 5 minutes on an Apple "Puck" mouse then? Ouch! :p ;)

    On the topic though, there must be hundreds of people out there with a puck mouse that don't use it anymore!? Either don't use the iMac it came with or have since replaced it with a better (*gasp*) one?
    C'mon peeps, help this guy out!

    Thanks, James! Is it only the ones which came with G4 towers that are graphite, though?

    Ooh, you could be right there - that may make it a lot harder, if they're somewhat limited!

    True. Had they moved onto Pro mice by the time the snow coloured crt imac came out? I wonder what they shipped with those later crt ones.

    I have one somewhere, not sure where. It came with my 400 mhz G4 tower. I don't know how much it would cost to ship it to you from the U.S. Let me know if you want it, and I can give you my e-mail.

    That would be good. I just wonder about postage. Would it be over £5 for postage? Any pics would be great.

    I'd say a tenner for the mouse and a tenner for postage (air-mail?) should cover it.
    Make it twenty nikker govner!
    (£20 = $37.47) - Does this seem fair to you Wowser?

    Yeah, I don't know how much postage would be. Well I will still have it if no one that lives closer can come up with one.

    It seem fair, but I'll snoop around for lower offers ;) The actual mice seem to go for around 5 quid. I'll bare your offer in mind, Kmacripple. Good point about seeing what people have on offer. I realise it's a bit of a chore though - like on eBay - to send parcels like this.

    I was almost going to say 'swap you for Office 2004', then realised the Beth Din wouldn't be too happy with my copy.

    I have a blueberry hockey puck from my iMac DV 400, but I still am using it on that computer over at the school. I got used to that mouse even though many could not. It was just weird because you had to get used to not being able to rest your hand on the mouse.

    I have maybe... 100 of them? Alas, they are owned by the school, and though replaced long ago with Opticals, giving them away is a no-no. Ah, but you are in luck. E-mail me with an address. Just happen to have a few here at home from my personal stock.
    Free, dude.
