    I think I'd have to pass. You'd probably get just up/down scrolling and the top is plastic and not glass like the Magic Mouse. Then you have to worry about a dongle.

    I know I'm dissing on it, but the premium for a true MM is worth it! Only thing I can't stand using a MM for is Photoshop, besides that they rock!

    I dont see what this has to do with PowerPC, it should be posted in the Mac peripherals. I don't think its worth it, and the Magic Mouse is bluetooth.

    The real Magic Mouse is plastic.
    I wouldn't imagine that the fake one will work anywhere like the Apple mouse and the absence of bluetooth is a deal breaker on any mouse I use with a Mac.

    I value the opinion of the regulars (Gavinstubbs, Eric, Altemose etc.) here on the powerpc forum more than the rest of the community because I find them to be a bit more reasonable. That's all.

    Fair enough. Perhaps next time I'll post in peripherals.

    But you seem to enjoy debates, eh?

    Why do you hate me, what have i done to you? I have never even said that I'm a master debater.
    Someone posts in the wrong forum section, and i tell that person nicely and you just start to insult me. You should delete your account.

    de master bater.


    all jokes aside. I might give the mouse a shot cause im an "eh, why not" kinda guy. I don't expect miracles and don't need 80 billion gestures I just think it matches the modern apple aesthetic better than a mighty mouse.

    I did the same when I bought my PBG4 battery. I just figured I'd give it a shot cuz "Eh, why not" :)

    It will probably be fine. I too use a knock off mouse. Though mine uses a scroll wheel instead of touch, and bluetooth instead of rf. I am pleased with how well it works... less so with the knock off keyboard.
