    As the title states whats your favorite pointing device you will use with your new iMac? Also if you switch devices for different tasks post your setups, I'm thinking of using a trackball because sometimes I do some 3d modeling and my wrist suffers from the constant motion of a normal mouse and it helps me to use a trackball so the arm and wrist stays put.

    I love trackballs. But I would use one for my work computer, at home I am satisfied with a simple wireless scroll mouse.

    My new iMac came with a Magic Mouse. Since I did not see a compelling improvement over a cheap wireless mouse, I just took it to the Apple store in Regent Street and explained I ordered the computer with the wrong device, and when I called Apple they told me the order would need to be cancelled and redone (which is the truth). So they graciously exchanged it for a Magic Trackpad.

    I am more happy now.

    I can't really vote..Mine is still processing, but I like the MM and can't see any reason for changing....Might add in a trackpad though.

    i can't vote because my order (with a trackpad) is still pending so the only thing i've used is the magic mouse - unless you count the laptop's trackpad.
