    Hello - got a 13 MBP and liked is some much I went out and purchased a mini. I currently have a Logitech MX5500, but it does not appear to be fully supported by OSX. I need something that works with both windows and OSX as on the desktop I will be using a 50/50 split. I really enjoy the Logitech mouse products. So any recommendations?

    I prefer to go wireless if at all possible. thanks in advance for the help!

    All mine are Logitech. Check to see if they have new drivers for OS X for your existing mouse.

    The MX5500 is bluetooth and the keyboard works but the mouse does not - or most times does not.....

    OK - still having some issues the Logitech set I have, while I love it is difficult. I need a wireless keyboard and mouse recommendation that will work with OSX and Windows 7. Any recommendations?

    Apple Keyboard (with the numpad) + Logitech MX 1100 + USB Overdrive = my killer combo at the moment.

    Converted a couple of months ago as well. Had a rough time getting used to their wireless keyboard mouse combo. After a week I was fine.

    When i boot into Windows 7, i pull out my MX3200 and turn off the mac keyboard. works great.

    The apple wireless keyboard is sick. Awesome aluminum metal design, very small and lightweight. Typing also feels real good, nice and soft feel to it.
