    hi all I have been using a apple magic mouse but it sucks.
    I need something better.
    I have looked around and seems my best options maybe either a Logitech performance/revolution mx or a razer mamba.

    but heard the mx revolution is better then the performance, and the only way I can get the resolution is buying the mx5500 combo.

    any suggestions are appreciated.

    I have a Logitech V470 BT mouse that I keep switched off but near my MB. It comes in handy when I find myself wanting to do things "the mouse way" which is less and less often these days.

    Logitech revolution MX.
    I program brush size increase and decrease on the side buttons, for example. You can customize anything, besides being a ckmfortable, ergonomic mouse with great tracking.

    When it comes to Photoshop a Wacom digitizer will run circles around one of those soap bars.

    Any mouse but if you want to do serious work use a wacom tablet. The only thing I don't use the tablet for these days is when I use the Pen Tool. All my hotkeys are set to my keyboard which I can navigate around in with my left hand only so I don't need any extra mouse buttons.

    I would personally shoot for comfort > features when it comes to a mouse.

    Hope I helped.

    I agree - if you're serious about Photoshop, you need a graphics tablet. You'll never get the same accuracy or ease of use from a mouse. I haven't used a mouse for over 5 years now. The Wacom isn't just useful for Photoshop, it speeds up everything you do, and it's much more comfortable to use. My particular set up is a Wacom tablet and a magic trackpad. The trackpad is mainly for rapid scrolling and zooming.
