    Any good suggestions people use for development/design instead of the Apple mighty mouse?

    Thanks,

    I'm not in dev/des, but I did recently pick up a Logitech Bluetooth mouse... model #M-RCQ142 and I loves it.

    I don't use a mouse anymore (Wacom), but when I did I really liked the Kensington mouse-in-a-box. It was cheap, felt good in my hand, moved pretty well, and was cheap.

    It was also inexpensive.

    The wacom combo tablet w/mouse is nice if that's the type of design need you have.

    For just a mouse, I like the logitec nano - the 4-way scroll wheel doesn't plug up with cheeto residue like the MM. :eek::D

    I've been very pleased with the MX Revolution for 3+ years now.

    +1. Make sure you go with the Revolution And not the newer model, "MX Performance Mouse"

    +1. I'm tired of cleaning the scrollball on my Mighty Mouse, and will be almost certainly buying whatever Apple comes up with as a replacement. :)

    I'm addicted to the Mighty Mouse, and when the new one comes out I'll buy one of those!
    It has it's down falls, but I love it anyway.

    My dad uses a razor, he's had no problems with it that I know of, I've used it and it seems quite good.

    Kind Regards

    This is what I've found to be true :)

    Left Apple's mice in 2004 to Logitech and considered them to be the best, but tried Razer last summer and fell in love with it. So, that's my story ;)

    I'm not into development and design, but after reading the awful reviews of the mighty mouse, I bought this one:

    http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Blu...1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1254834794&sr=8-1

    Its sturdy but lightweight, and not too expensive, and it does what needs to be done. It also has a 4th button for expose or a back button or whatever you choose.

    Logitech has some pretty nice mouses but theyre also expensive, and I'm not sure what one needs for development and design.

    Good luck
