    How fast would you say an out of the box mac vs a pc is configured in terms of the mouse pointer speed? For some reason I find that PCs have the sensitivity way up compared to macs. I know you can adjust it and all but I'm just wondering what your experiences are with this.

    The Mac is set extremely slow out of the box. But it's not easy to compare because Windows has a 'flat' acceleration while the Mac has a more refined curve.

    I noticed this as well, whats funny is that if you connect a wireless mighty mouse to a windows pc, the pointer speed goes really slow again. So im not sure whats going on, i think its the mice, and not the operating system.

    What a strange post. The speed of both systems are full adjustable, so it doesn't really matter.

    Yeah I've found that by just changing the mouse the experience changes completely on OS X, but not so much on Windows.

    I had a wireless Mighty Mouse, but gave it to my wife and got an ordinary usb wireless mouse to take its place. The Mighty Mouse felt comfortable and was sturdy, but I found it difficult to use / navigate with mainly due to the button configuration...
