    Hey guys, I was thinking about buying myself a new mouse since I just can't get used to the "Apple Wireless Mouse" that most people with macs have. I love how simple it looks but it's a little awkward to hold. I just plugged in my PC's mouse to my Mac Mini and I can navigate quicker.

    Do you guys/gals know of any wireless mice that would match my white Apple theme, but are not made by Apple? Thanks.

    *Edit* Oh, and I also want it to be comfortable, unlike the Apple Wireless Mouse. Thanks.

    That carry the Apple theme?...not as easy as other good bluetooth / wireless mice.

    The Mouse BT is Apple in design, with 2 buttons etc and a scroll, but the reviews are bad...just check out some of the threads here to do with mice, it's not a pretty picture.

    I'm not sure if the Microsoft Bluetooth mouse works on the Mac now. I asked that question myself ages ago, people suggested it wouldn't as it didn't seem to mention OS X like other Microsoft mice, so I avoided it. But I swear I can remember someone mentioning that they got it working still...worth checking out, (I know it's not exactly Apple in design) But sometimes the best thing closest to Apple is just the Apple product, unless you want to branch away from the Apple design.

    Strangely enough I have just brought the Apple Wireless Mouse today after switching from a Microsoft S+arck Mouse which was playing up. Apart from not having a decent mouse mat/surface and no quick right click, I'm more than happy with it. (Decided to stay clear of Mighty Mouse!)

    What kind of Wireless are you looking for? Bluetooth or RF? It's hard to find a mouse to carry out your theme. I highly suggest the Logitech MX1000 great mouse and it is compatible with Mac OSX.

    As far as I know all Microsoft BT Mice work with OSX straight out of the box.

    Well, bluetooth would be nice. What does RF stand for? I just want a nice wireless mouse, either USB or Bluetooth that is a bit more comfortable than the Apple Wireless Mouse. That thing just has no shape to it at all and by big hands don't help the situation either.

    *Edit* Also, is the Logitech MX1000 USB?
