do you always have to hit control click for right click function or will it allow you to click on the right side of the mouse button? I'm just wondering if "mighty mouse-like" capabilities were implemented. It's not that big of a deal but it would be a plus for me. Before I got my own Mini/mighty mouse, I only used the Macs at school, which were not updated and I had to control-click. (Now they are all updated with intels and mighty mouse so its just as convenient as at home).

On the MacBook Pro you can enable a feature in Preferences that will do a right click when you put two fingers on the track pad.
So
two fingers on pad+click=right click

I think it is easier than reaching to the other side.

Va bene....perfetto. Thanks for the info. I thought I saw that option when I was palying around with the mbp at the apple store. Man, I am sooooo close to ordering this thing. I just have to wait till I get my student laons in so I can buy that bad boy with cash!

Ahh, yes, one of the features that I wish Apple would expand to the other laptops that are able to handle such commands. It's just a software update for the most recent iBooks and a few revisions of the Powerbooks...
