    Got the new touch mouse and is all that you can do is go scroll up and down?

    Beside scrolling I often use 2finger flick right/left for back/next in safari. But with BetterTouchTool you can customize and add pretty much everything.

    BTT sounds cool, I only use mighty mouse when I'm on my iMac. Does BTT improve the track pad on the macbook?

    Also, can the mighty mouse work on more than one mac?

    Yes it does. Though after playing around I switched back to the standard gestures. The only thing I used was 3 finger down/up = page down/page up for faster browsing boards. But after the scrolling update I don't need that anymore.

    Yep, but you need to disconnect it in OS X. You can't use it on multiple devices at the same time. Wouldn't make much sense though.

    BTW: if you didn't know: you can connect the magic mouse with just a long click. Very handy (didn't know that first and always connected it via Bluetooth settings in OS X)
