    Is the Mighty Mouse a good mouse? I've read good and bad reviews. When did Apple release the Mighty Mouse? I don't want to spend $70.00 to found out that Apple will be releasing a better one in the coming months.

    I personally despise the mighty mouse, there are many better mice out there. I believe Apple released the Mighty Mouse in 2005, but I doubt they will be replacing it any time soon.

    People usually either love them or hate them

    I use one, and I have no issues with it

    I agree with Duck. I dispise it. Have had two, and withing weeks the very functional scroll wheel fails. I use the logictech, with expose, ect assigned to it's third, forth buttons. Seems using OSX and a multi-button mouse go hand in hand. Unless of course you have the MBP trackpad which I'm stunned how functional it is.

    Wireless version works very well for me. But I've never been much of a "mouse snob". ;)

    I use the MM with no problems. It works very well with OS X.

    I doubt a new one will be released any time soon.

    I personally love mine. I've had it for almost 2 years, no problems whatsoever. But you do need to clean the scroll ball once in a while.

    People either love it or hate it. I think its a good mouse; I've used better more featured ones however. It works seamlessly with OSX. I never had any problems with the scroll wheel as others have. The wireless one is amazing in the amount of surfaces you can use it on; I used it on my roommates cat and it worked flawlessly. It eats through the 2 batteries in about 4 months though.

    Some people like it, some people don't. I personally despise it (wireless). Since you've read some reviews, you probably already know what's wrong with it.

    The bottom line is that way too many have gripes with it that it doesn't make sense to recommend it. I've seen some people say "works for me! I recommend it". People, if it's known to be full of flaws, and a good half or more of users complains about it, you DON'T recommend it whether it works for you or not. I like my MBP, but people gotta accept the fact that Apple messed up its mice line. It's so inferior to Logitech/MS/etc. mice in ALL POSSIBLE ways.

    If you don't care about matching the brand of the computer and the mouse, no way on Earth you should consider buying a MM.

    For me I've never had any problems with mine (wired). Just treat it like you would your Mac and clean it every once in a while and it should be great. I love mine just because it works so well with OS X.

    Thanks for all the info guys! Is that really correct, Apple released the MM in 2005 and hasn't release a new one yet? What are they waiting on?

    What are they waiting on? Who the hell knows. Haha

    But I will tell you this though, 75 dollars is pretty hefty for a mouse nowadays.
