    Hi,

    Just got a new mouse for my GF and she has a macbook, we connected it and realized that the USB is on the left of the macbook and the mouse wire is too short to go around it to right hand side as she's right handed, anyone had that before? i was very disappointed.

    A bit of a generalisation, especially without trying every one.

    I have a wireless Logitech Mouse and its very light and works great with my Macbook.

    hhmm righto then. it cant hurt to take it back to them and see.. just explain your situation, or lie.. which ever one you think will work :p

    yes yes i know.. i have tried a few, apple's MM is ok but not very accurate. i have a logitech wireless and its so terrible, not very accurate AT ALL! i much much prefer a corded mouse. if i found a wireless that stood up to my standards then of course i would purchase it.
