hey, i have a TiBook as well & i also do alot of graphics stuff. i looked at the Logitech Mouseman, but i ended up getting the Microsoft IntelliEye Explorer (or whatever it's called). i only got that because of the price, it was the cheapest i could find. i would have got the Logitech, but it was too much.:p :D

I have a Microsoft wireless intellimouse explorer for my 9500(soon to be running Jaguar!)and it's a great mouse...5 buttons and it's wireless! No lag what so ever...although the batteries only last about 2.5 weeks so get some rechargeables...

btw...I got it on ebay for $40! NIB! You can't beat that! The retail is a little higher though because it's wireless...;)

I have two logitech optical mice, one for home, and one for work. I love them. I am interested in the new Kensington studio mouse. It looks pretty sweet.

re: mouse recomendations

i have a logitech mouse-man optical or wahtever and i really dont like it. it's extremely heavy and logitech has totally dropped the ball on support in OS X. thank god for usboverdirve. i would suggest getting a microsoft intellimouse explorer wired/wireless depending on your budget. great device support under X and the mice are light and very ergonomic.

They are cool, but they only have one button. I like my contextual menu access.

For some people, like you, many people, in fact, one mouse button is great and zero is even better.

Avoid the Apple Pro Mouse. The cord is short, and there is only one button. I recommend you get an optical mouse with two buttons and a scroll wheel at least, wireless is nice. And whats with all the logitech and ms mice?:confused: Ya'll know there are other options right? Here are my suggestions.

Targus - Wireless Optical Mini Mouse
Great wireless mouse, small and convienent. It has no drivers for OS X, but it doesn't need any...OS X supports two button scroll mice. The color also matchs well with the tibook. This is my favorite of the three.;)

Kensington - Pocket Mouse Pro
This is not wireless, but the wire retracts into the mouse body nicely. This may be better than wireless...when its unplugged the sensor doesn't light. What happens to a wireless mouse when its bumped in a bag? :eek:

Memorex - Wireless Optical Traveler
A relatively new mouse. The nice thing is the wireless mouse batteries can charge from the USB port.

I like choices, and here are mine;)

Kensington Pro Mouse

I just got one and it is the best mouse I've ever owned. Plus it looks like it matches the computer colors. It has:
-Two Buttons
-A sensor scroll wheel.
-A thired button that is programable.
-And if you hit left and righ button at the same time you can program that as well.
-It's also optical
Work in OS 9 and 10.2
