    All USB Apple mice I know will work just fine on a PC. Note that the model you fell in love with is an one-button mouse!

    It's just a crush, you don't really want it, it's pants.

    I don't want to be accused of pushing the kool-aid on you, but if you love one design element of an older apple accessory so much, you may end up enjoying the same things in a mac.

    And to prove I'm not a fanboy, buy a wired mighty mouse if you want to fall out of love in a few months. There, I said it.

    I agree. You should switch to a Mac soon. The interface, the design, is all amazing.

    I'm also loving the mouse (Aluminum mouses are cool. ... Well, metal ones) and I"m hoping that Apple will make a revision to the Mighty Mouse line and fix the tracker ball problems soon. :)

    I agree with all of the above, make the switch. But if you ever intend on buying a Mighty Mouse, make sure your purchase at a retailer that will provide you with Apple's 1 Year Limited Warranty, because once that scroll ball stops working, you've pretty much thrown £35/£50 in the bin!

    I think I still have one or two of those mice at home. The problem is: They're only nice to look at, but completely suck for everyday use or real work. And I would say the same thing about Apple's Mighty Mouse. While the Mighty Mouse is tolerable for most office work, it completely sucks for gaming or precision work.

    And that is the problem with most Apple products: They're designer pieces, and form is more important for Apple than functionality.

    youre going to be in for a world of hurt, Apple has never made a good mouse

    also be aware that the mouse has an extremely short cord, its meant to be plugged into the keyboard, its not nearly long enough to be plugged into the back of a computer like normal mice
