    :confused: I'm shopping around for the right mouse, and could sure use some advice/recommendations. I need a mouse for my G4 iBook, and would like to have at least three buttons, with a high quality/accurate scroll wheel.

    I'd prefer a USB optical mouse, not wireless. I already have a wireless mouse that uses lots of batteries, and also drains the battery in my iBook.

    I just bought a Logitech mouse from BestBuy. Installed the software and my iBook froze. Couldn't do anything at all, until I plugged in my old mouse, so I could uninstall the software. Now I have to go back to BestBuy and return the mouse that claims to be OS X compatible!

    Please share your experiences and recommendations. Thanks!

    I have a cheap Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical, which works fine. Beware of the Basic Optical Mouse though.

    I know a lot of people who use Logitech mice with no problems.

    I know you're looking for a wired mouse, but the Logitech MX 1000 laser mouse has a built-in rechargable battery. And it's super accurate.

    There's also the Logitech V500.

    As for wired mice, I prefer the Logitech MX 510 or the Logitech Click! optical mouse for something basic.
