    My parents are liking the whole clean mac mini look with a wireless keyboard and mouse. They can't believe they put up with all the wires for so long.

    I got them the logitech solar keyboard for the mac, only thing I messed up is I got them the wrong mouse. the mouse I got them doesn't use the unifying receiver logitech uses. So they are loosing a usb port they could be using for a camera.

    Any suggestions for a good logitech mouse, reviews seem hit or miss and most of them seem to have more buttons than the mac uses. What would be a good reliable logitech mouse for the mac with out a lot of extra stuff they don't need?

    If you live near an office depot they have the logitech M510 on sale for $20.00.
    It has a unifying receiver, quiet mouse wheel.

    I've just exchanged a MX Performance for an Anywhere MX mouse (fit my hand better) both excellent mice and both have unifying USB dongles.

    You will have to run the unifying software and both support the OS X. I use Better Touch Tool to get the most out of the buttons, it works without installing Logitech's driver.

    I use the Anywhere MX mouse on my Mac Mini, ChromeBox, and PC. I'm super happy with them. They have a feature I really like. You have a choice of either a free wheeling scroll wheel, or detent (clicky) style by simply depressing it; It will toggle between the two modes..

    IMO that's the best non-touch mouse available.

    Just noticed my Anywhere only needs one AA battery, they're in parallel to increase battery life and possibly distribute the weight.
