    Hello

    I've not bought my first Mac yet :eek:, but I already have a question.

    I have a Logitech Trackman Marble FX, Trackball wich I really like. However the penny dropped the other day, that it was of an era of PS2 - serial connections not USB - PS2. So when I do get my shiny new mini, will I be able to get it to work :confused:

    I Have seen adapters like these and more expensive ones, but will they do the job, Although they imply they will?

    Not fussed about the keyboard. I think I have a couple USB ones in the loft. And If the mouse doesnt work I'll use my graphics tablet for the short term... But I do like my little tracker ball! And I would rather spend the cash on memory than a new mouse/trackerball etc.

    Thanks
