yes it is considering you asked a question you should be able to tell by looking at the box of the mouse. You might want to be a little more specific. IE. What kind of powerbook?(G3 G4,etc...) and maybe a logitech product name because i doubt anyone here knows that what product matches that model number. I mean hell we can't read your bloody mind

Asked a silly question and you'll get a silly answer

they all have the same name, it just goes by the model number, this is the $100 model, it doesn't say it is compatible on there website, but I am wondering if someone tryed it before. I have a g4 powerbook and g3 ibook.

9 chances out of 10 you should be fine. if you already bought it just hook it up i mean **** it can't hurt. Why not just take your laptop to the store and ask them if you can test it out. After all it is a moble computer.

its a good idea, but I don't have any local store which has it, I was going to order it off the net, but I don't want to order it and then have to return it b/c its incompatible. Logitechs website doesn't say mac compatible but I know of many things that worked with my powerbook that were not supposed to.

digging is good for the soul

And your soul is MINE... muahahahahahaha

I did a minor amount of searching on Logitech's web site and found the following...

The Logitech Control Center (LCC) supports Mac OS X and allows you to take full advantage of your Logitech keyboard, mouse or trackball. With the LCC and your Logitech keyboard, you can:

* Browse the Internet using dedicated keys that provide one-touch access to your favorite sites.
* Launch your email application by pressing a button.
* Play music and control the system speaker using built-in buttons.
* Open frequently used items, such as documents, folders and applications, with a single keystroke.
You can also use the LCC with your Logitech mouse or trackball to:

* Scroll in windows of applications built for MacOS X. You can scroll up and down with a single keystroke or wheel movement.
* Switch between open applications.
* Show contextual menus with a single mouse click.
* Simulate keystrokes to provide shortcuts to commands you use regularly.

A final, full release is expected by September, 2002
Judging by what it says there, I believe that the beta drivers will give you functionality under OS X for both the keyboard and mouse... Get all the goodies here. Hope that is more of what you were looking for.

If you still are uncertain, call/contact Logitech BEFORE you make the purchase.

wow, your amazing, thanks again I think this is the 5th time you helped me out. How did you find that? I spend a half hour at the site and came up with nothing.

I'm not a demi-god for nothing you know... :D I just started searching, in my typical, logical way and dug down into the site a little and found that. When you go to that link, there is another on the left hand side about OS 9 compatibility. If you plan to use it under OS X, then give the beta software a twirl, and get the full release when it comes out in a couple of months.
