    I know this is a regular topic here, But im stuck between two mice..

    The Microsoft Arc wireless mouse

    http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/m...ls.aspx?pid=112&active_tab=systemRequirements


    Or

    LOGITECH VX REVOLUTION

    http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/accessories/0,39100116,49283297,00.htm


    I already have a BT mighty mouse with my mac and not overly impressed with it. However I work in an I.T environment with a windows notebook, and have had good experience with the Logitech mice. But Im a fan of good looking mice, hence why i've put the ms arc mice in here.

    Anyone got either of these?

    Thanks for your feedback

    Don't get anything by M$. You know what their software and hardware is like.

    Wait for Apple to release the new multi-touch keyboard and mouse.

    Their mouses are great, I've owned several over the years. I've seen your other posts, stop being such a fanboi, the world doesn't end if a Mac user buys Microsoft products.

    General rule is if you want a decent mouse don't buy Apple. As for one of those two mice either will be massive improvement over the MM. I have logitech vx nano and it rocks!

    IMHO, I really love Rocketfish Bluetooth Wireless Laser Mouse for Mac. People overlook this mouse so frequently.

    Check it out.

    To be honest, both logitech and microsoft make awesome mice.

    I had a basic microsoft one and now I have a logitech (V450 nano- great mouse btw). The tiny usb transmitter and looong batery life made the difference for me.

    Both the mice you linked to are good, but the logitech is probably far more comfortable to use. (Ive never used the arc)
    Can you go in a shop to try them out? See how they fit your hand.

    Out of the two I would go for the VX.

    I'd go with Logitech. Ive always been a fan of their mice. Very nice build.

    Not to say that MS doesnt make good mice, I just prefer Logitech.

    2 pennies.

    I find white ones are best as they're easier to see on my dark carpet if the kitteh loses interest ;)

    Nope. If its comes with the new iMacs then its looking like this month but thats definitely a guess at best.

    Try out all mice you're interested in and get the one you are most comfortable using.

    IMHO you can't go wrong with the Logitech V470 (and it comes in white!), I'm currently on my second.

    Use them both arc mouse (white) and the logitech, they both awright...

    But I really recommended MS bluetooth 5000 (yeah i knoe its microsoft) but you cant go wrong with that. :)

    my two cents...:apple:
