    So, I just bought an iMac with a wireless Mighty Mouse. I'm using it on an old table right now (until I move into a new place). It's an older table and there is some loss of luster when I'm using the mouse at causing it to jump around a little bit.

    I'm looking for a mousepad that'll look good and perform well. I'm thinking, if it's out there, an aluminum mousepad would be pretty cool to match the iMac.

    Any suggestions?

    I have the macpadd Aluminum mouse pad and I dig it. It's a bit expensive, 25 bucks, but there's no pad out there like it.

    Keep in mind the SteelSeries (at least most of them) are very big - that may be a good thing for you. To me it overpowered my desk.

    The great thing about Amazon or Buy.com you could always return it if it doesn't suite your needs.

    You might want to also check your local Best Buy (call ahead) - I want to say they had some SteelSeries mouse pads.

    Ended up running across a RocketFish 2 sided pad for 19.99 while I was at Best Buy buying a new PS3 Slim. It was half price of what I was going to pay so it worked out for the better. Pretty nice little pad, just what I needed.

    Thanks for the help.

    If you ask me, a mousepad is a mousepad is a mousepad. I have a cheap fabric-y one that has lasted me 8 years.
