    Hey again- I went to Tekserve here in Manhattan, and I was very let down that the geeks there couldn't tell me which mouse would work. Here's the question:

    I will be running Maya, and my teacher told me to get a 3-button mouse. When I went to the place, they could not clarify for me if the 2-button ones with the scroll wheel would work as a 3. My guess was "no," so I didn't buy one.

    Can someone lemme know which mouse I need to get?

    The more compact, the better! Also- the cheaper the better!!

    Thanks, guys!

    2 with a scroll wheel will work. I use a Microsoft Optical Trackball and only use the 2 main buttons and the scroll when using Maya 5

    i use maya professionally and yeah... i have at home a wacom intuos2 that came with a three button mouse, that is, a two button mouse with a scrollwheel that also acts as a button...

    u *should* make sure the scrollwheel can act as a button, as maya is SO MUCH MORE efficient with three effective buttons :)

    and welcome, maya is an incredible piece of engineering :D
