I'm just curious..who all buys a mouse with their laptop? and why?
I don't, but thanks to Quicksilver, I barely use the trackpad anyway
I use an Apple Pro mouse with my MBP.
Why? Because it's mainly a desktop replacement... I also use an external monitor and one of the new Apple keyboards as well.
I use a laptop for business travel and carry a mouse. I just prefer a mouse over a trackpad.
i use a logitech wireless mouse with mine.
i dont even really take it anywhere much, it's just a lot faster and easier to use a mouse than the touchpad.
plus it makes gaming a lot easier.
See, I find the touchpad easier. Love the two-finder scroll.
However, you are true about needing a mouse of gaming, obviously.
I have a Logitech v270 that I use when I feel like it. I always use it when I'm using Final Cut or PS.. using a trackpad in those apps is awful.
I use an Apple keyboard and a bluetooth mighty mouse when at my desk at home. I toss the mouse in my bag and use it occasionally on the go as well. I really like Apple's new aluminum keyboard.
I have a wireless mouse right next to my laptop, and at one point I would use it all the time. In the last year though I have notice I have been using the touch pad more and more. I rarely use the mouse these, but its still there, eating up batteries.
i have a bluetooth apple mighty mouse but i rarely find myself ever using it...
I have a bluetooth logitech that I use when I feel the need.
Which is pretty much when playing games or using certain windows software and need a proper right click.
I do have a bluetooth mouse and a wireless keyboard but rarely use them, mostly because i got them to use with 15" powerbooks, then found that for most situations I just preferred a 12" powerbook parked on my lap.
I use my mouse whenever I find myself having to draw in Illustrator, Photoshop, etc. Other than that, the trackpad works ok.
YesI have one
I use it sometimes, but I had it before I got the Macbook Pro. I use just because sometimes I can move it quicker.
Same. Mouse, keyboard and Apple Display. Sweet.
No, no mouse here. My wife has a BT mouse with her Powerbook, and I can't stand using it. It's much too heavy! A corded mouse would be a possibility, but with the iBook it would have to stretch all the way around the monitor, and that's actually too far for the standard apple mouse. So you need an extension cord. What a pain! Anyway, I do fine with the trackpad. I imagine if I was doing a lot of photoshop or something on the ibook I might consider a mouse. But for writing/surfing, it's not worth the bother.
Of course I use a mighty mouse with my iMac, though!
I generaly hate pads...so i have a mouse...just a matter of taste, habit and personal choice...
Yes, I do. I use a Logitech VX Revolution, just because it is so comfortable to use and it has a lot of programable buttons which I use a lot. It is a lot better for photoshop than using the trackpad.
mightymouse, cause my mbp usually sits to the side and i have my bluetooth keyboard and 22" LCD sitting on my desk that i use
My laptop is my only computer so I use a mouse when it is at my desk. All other times I use the trackpad.
Bluetooth MM at home and trackpad on the road. I am more use to the mouse than a trackpad but I don't like carrying extra gear with me on the road.
Most of the time I use the track pad, but for Photoshop definitely use a mouse. (BT MM)
I use a Microsoft Wireless InteliMouse Explorer 2.0, though it requires an external transmitter, it has very good battery life. Though I like the touchpad as well, because of its ambedexterous nature, because I sometimes either hand with it. I've not used the mighty mouse that much, though I personally think from initial impressions that the scroll is kind of odd...
Same. I use a VX Revolution as my mouse. Great mouse!
Yes ! I must have one. Can't live without a mice. It helps me alot to do a design graphics in Adobe CS3. The trackpad is good too, but not as flexible as I can do with mice.
