I don't know what you would do in Windows, but there IS a right click in OS X. You can hold ctrl + click or change the track pad preferences to allow you to use two finger clicking. If you use a two button mouse, no problem...but if you use a mighty mouse its settings default to one button but you can change them to two button.

Two fingers on the trackpad while clicking = Secondary click. Works in windows via bootcamp.

I use a 23" Apple Cinema Display. I really like it. I first bought a 20" ACD, but after a month or so I decided to kick it up to the 23" HD monitor. As far as the keyboard and mouse goes, I went with the Logitech S530(Mac). I like it better than the Apple bluetooth keyboard & mighty mouse. I think it looks nicer, offers more functionality, and is less quirky. I have the Apple bluetooth setup on my iMac, and it's alright, but the mighty mouse's scroll ball likes to act up and stop scrolling, and stuff like that. You are right about it connecting automatically. What I do with the Logitech setup is, I plug the USB receiver into the back of my ACD(it has a USB & Firewire hub built in). So when I get home and plug in my monitor, and the keyboard & mouse work.

Thanks again .. Ok.. I Really like the S530 now... Guess Ill go along with it.. Last question.. How's the battery life of the setup..? Im a very extreme user and live on my comp about 5 hrs a day. How often will I have to change the batteries..? and what batteries does it use anyway..?
