So now that I got my new Mini today I need a good mouse to go with it, using an old gaming mouse right now but its not supported by Apple so just has basic stuff, I want a fully supported corded USB mouse. Any suggestions?
Why have you got a preference for corded?
For what it's worth, I've been using an MS Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 a simple two button plus scroll wheel mouse for at least three years and it still looks/performs as new. The MS IntelliPoint 8.2 software (installed in System Prefs) is rock solid, although I can't claim to have tried any exotic application-specific button assignments.
Try one of the Logitech cordless mice.
After using them on two desktop Macs, I would never go back to wired....
I use a Corsair M45. There are no OSX drivers for this mouse but you only need those to do the initial configuration. I configured the mouse in bootcamp and saved the configuration to the mouse itself and it works great in OSX
After doing the configuration in windows, can you still use the extra buttons on the side in osx?
Yes, because you can save the configuration to the mouse itself because it has onboard memory. I configured the buttons on the side as CTRL+LEFT and CTRL+RIGHT to switch between desktops
