    Apple only makes crappy mice. Not gaming mice. Stick with other makers.

    I'm not going to say this mouse "matches" with Apple stuff, but I absolutely love my Logitech G602. It is SO COMFORTABLE. My friend games a lot on PC and uses the same mouse, if that tells you anything.

    On the topic of getting accessories to "match" Apple devices, I personally believe your desk setup matters more than just the mouse or keyboard alone. I have my Logitech mouse on a black mouse pad next to a black and white keyboard, on a white desk. A pleasant aesthetic appearance matters more about getting your entire setup to look congruent. Just my two cents. :)

    Do you want an ergonomic gaming mouse ? Or do you want an apple mouse? I suggest you buy an apple mouse , try it for 2 weeks gaming, you will return it and go back to your razer. My point is that good looks does not mean functional . Especially when gaming

    Completely understand .

    I have 4 apple mouses, between work and the ones I got with my apple products.

    My PC and Mac Pro uses razer mamba, due to ease of use and ergonomics. Tried gaming on an apple mouse, wanted to throw it against the wall :p

    I consider the mamba one of the better looking ones.

    I know you want to find a mouse that matches your MacBook looks wise and be good for gaming ... mamba ?

    Logitech make a few nice ones .

    Just google gaming mouse and click on images in the results

    The apple mouse has a touch sensitive top, so it can tell whether you're doing a left click or right click by which side of the button you press. So effectively it's like two buttons.

    The snag with this -and it's a big snag if you play games like WoW - is it can't tell if you're holding down both 'buttons' at the same time. So you can't do the 'press both buttons to run' thing if that's what you're used to

    I've never had any luck with razers. Dead buttons, not very good response. Got a steelseries xai and never looked back. Good cord, clean design, speed control with an accelerator, and not pricey. Look them up OP

    For gaming I could care less about what the mouse looks like. It is all about functionality that boosts my score!

    I second the comment about the Logitech G602. Have that one and love it. Logitech can be a bit annoying with their updates, but the mouse is generally solid and good for gaming.

    For MMOs: Razer Naga.
    For everything else: Razer Death Adder.

    Rule number one for mice: FUNCTION OVER FORM

    That's VERY important, let me type it again

    FUNCTION OVER FORM

    Even if it's not a Razer product, you find the one that fits your scrolling profile, your gripping profile, and maximizes comfort. I don't care if it's painted pink with orange polka dots and has Barney and Hello Kitty stamped all over it.... The right mouse makes a WORLD of difference..

    Do all non-Apple mice require using their own receiver? I got the Logitech 602 but was surprised to find that the Macbook's native Bluetooth receiver did not detect it. Logitech told me I needed to install the dongle that came with the mouse. My BT headsets all get recognized by the Mac's own BT receiver, so I don't get why this other accessory requires its own receiver.

    That's because the Logitech G602 is NOT a bluetooth device. It uses Logitech's own wireless technology (at 2.4 GHz, similar to Wifi).
    So yeah, your Bluetooth headsets get recognized because they really are Bluetooth headsets. Many other mice use Bluetooth, too, and they would work just fine with the MacBook. Just not this particular one.

    Personally I don't give a damn about how my mouse looks but a quick search turned out the EVGA TORQ.... it looks a bit spacey and I'm sure there are others :)
