    i dont like the magic mouse, and i dont like wireless mice period. I did put na mx518 on it and for some reason the movement felt weird on it. I was wondering if i got a native wired apple mouse would it run better or is it something in my mouse option that things are acting funny?

    Also use a Logitech (but MX400, laser) with my MBP.
    Runs smooth - but did never test it without LCC - did you install your LCC? Maybe that's the reason.

    To be honest I had major dramas finding a mouse for my iMac 27".

    Wasn't happy at all with the Magic mouse and after a couple of months of searching and trying different mice I settled with the Razor Mamba.. Not a big gamer personally, but the mouse is really good.

    It's prolly the mouse acceleration, you can try installing USB Overdrive or Steermouse and disable the acceleration.

    Yea it may be that im always working on a pc and turn on the imac from time to time to do a couple of things. i may need to mess with it and find a way to turn it off. To answer your question o i didnt install LCC. i mean the magic mouse is ok for some minor browsing, but when im cutting audio or editing a photo its pisses me off. I read a lot of bad reviews on the wired apple mouse as well thats another reason im steering away. Plus i want a right click :p

    Go to settings and change the mouse sensitivity. Hopefully that helps.

    Did you install Logitech's software for OS X? The software has a default profile which accelerates the mouse better than the default settings.

    Has Logitech indeed done a proper mouse driver rather than just putting something on top of Apples? Because that's how it used to be with their drivers.

    In my experience Steermouse is the best for fixing the mouse acceleration. USB Overdrive seems to be no longer developed.

    You could also wait for 10.7 because it has a noticeably improved mouse movement. Different from Windows but doesn't feel bad at all. Nothing like the "tractor in mud" movement of earlier OSX versions.

    ??? what exactly does that mean?

    stock apple mice have "right clicked" since 2000 starting with the Apple Pro Mouse.

    omg, the magic mouse is awsome :) there is a right click, u have to go to the settings. Maybe you should have got the trackpad instead if u dont like this beast of a mouse :)

    The Magic Mouse is not very ergonomic for male hands IMO. But if you don't use it too long, this flat thing is okay - hehe.
    A good old Logitech suits the hand much better - ask your doc!

    And yes - Logitech has a "SetPoint" alternative for Mac OS X, called Logitech Control Centre (LCC). See link in my prior post.

    Once I finally figured out how to turn off acceleration, I was happy with a 3rd party mouse. I still have the problem where the mouse tracking speed resets on reboot. Driving me batty.
