    well unfortunately there aint no aluminum mouses out there right now. The Kensington slimblades seem to be popular with the uMBs.

    MM's are cool but the right clicking kinda sucks if you wanna use it with Windows apps.

    This brings up a good question as to what minimalist means to the user. Hopefully the OP will chime in with their opinion.

    IMHO, I think size has something to do with it. I was curious as to the size difference between the mouse that you mentioned and the Elecom M-D13ur mouse.

    For comparison, Rocketfish to Elecom:

    Height: 1.4" --> 1.14"

    Width: 2.4" --> 2.17"

    Depth: 4.4" --> 3.34"

    Cubic inches: 14.78 --> 8.26

    Weight: 2.4oz --> 2.0oz

    Surprised at how much different they are in size.

    Just some food for thought. :)

    If you still want something that looks Apple-like, I suggest MacMice. It's available in silver, too.

    Targus also has some very nice selections

    By minimalist i didn't mean small, i meant something like a "sculpture" (wrong word) like maeby the microsoft arc shape but nicer. Thanks!

    older apple pro mouse...

    The older Apple Pro Mouse, the one before the Mighty Mouse. "Where's the button?"

    It's still my favorite mouse.
