I use a Kensington Pro mouse, with a retractable USB lead. I may consider changing.
I use the apple bluetooth mouse. I love it!
Kensignton Studio Mouse (wired)
Small enough to be portable, but the "touch" scroll wheel isn't so hot (which may be why this thing has dropped like 40% in price since last year) and I'd love to find a small, bluetooth mouse with an on/off switch.
I used a Logitech MX500 with my tibook for over a year(great mouse).
Currently debating getting a bluetooth mouse to go with my new albook. And though i use the apple pro mouse at work. I desire to have a right click and scroll wheel for my portable, so apple mouse is out.
I use the PB's trackpad, as well as a Logitech MX900 Bluetooth mouse.
Logitech doesn't support OSX, so the extended buttons on the bluetooth mouse don't work. I would love to attach them to exposé or zoom in/out. On windows, I guess they are the browser back+forward button....
(PS: I also use Logitech's bluetooth keyboard)
I use an optical cordless that is a great accessory to a PB. Rock solid feel, pinpoint steady, goes all day without a recharge, and has the useful twist of working in the air like a remote. Its not a gimmick and very easy to use and ideal for controlling dvds from the couch.
Microsoft Intellimouse for Bluetooth.
That was my only option:
Logitech still isn't selling the MX900 in Canada
Apple still isn't selling a bluetooth mouse with buttons I can map expose too.
Are you sure you can't map the front back buttons to expose? The MS mouse doesn't have a driver, but expose (and only expose) still recognizes the forward/back buttons so I can map them.
If you haven't tried, go to the expose prefs pane and see if it recognizes 5 buttons. From what I've read it does for the 900.
i'm using the Logitech Mini Optical Mouse. it just rocks for my 12" AlBook. the cable isn't very long so it doesn't get in the way, and it's the same color as the PowerBook.
kensington studio pro, its full sized and got a long cord, but it feels great in the hand and the drivers allow for great functionality
Apple bluetooth mouse. It's great, as it's slim enough to be transported with my pb. When I come home, I use it with my powermac. Works for me.
love it. **** BT...i hate batteries!
Logitech cordless optical, with 4th button mapped to expose F9. Would love bluetooth equivalent (no USB plug-in box). Anyone any suggestions?
Macally iopti jr
got cause it was cheap and small but not too small.
first two button mouse I used for a mac and now cannot go back to a single button.
i use my sony playstation 2 mouse... i have the scroll wheel button set for expose... its small and does the trick, i cant stand the trackpad really, but not because if apple, i just dont like trackpads... but i LOVE POWERBOOKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I use a MX700 but it seems i am missing the party and i could use a MX900 without the extra drivers, is this possible and what buttons DO work?
I'd buy it in a heartbeat if somebody can give me some info.
Apple Bluetooth here
CrackedButter - Do a search in the Forums on on Bluetooth Mouse, and you'll pick up a long thread that discusses the MX900. Seems that it works basically, but that the extra buttons do not work (although they may work in Expose, but since I'm still using 10.2.8, not really sure what that means). Unfortunately, the Logitech mouse driver does not work, I guess because the connection is through BlueTooth and not USB.
Kensignton Studio Mouse (wired) also.
Like it, no problems with the scroll pad, but I don't break out a mouse as much as I used to. Prolly b/c I sit at a couch most of the time these days and compute instead of a desk.
i have an mx300 , i use it for EVERYTHING, including gaming on my PC. but its funny though i feel more comfortable using the trackpad on my powerbook
i bought my powerbook with the kensington pro w/ retractable cord. wound up using the ergonomic apple pro optical instead. i've been using a M$ intellimouse at work though - and am finding it to be just as good in some cases.
Kensington PocketMouse Pro with the retractable USB wire - like yours.
Prefer to keep my battery-worry count down to a minimum.
I use the mouse that comes with the Wacom Graphire2 tablet. Works really well on my Mac but is not very good on the PC!
I would love to get the Apple Bluetooth mouse but £55 is a lot of money for a single-button mouse!
BTW, would the Apple Bluetooth mouse and keyboard work with closed lid mode?
I use the trackpad, I don't like mice very much, I used to have a Kensington trackball which was cool, but it got nicked from my desk
I might get one of those ergomomic trackball they are doing at the mo, especially for the studio ProTools systems.
Trackpad does it for me though.
Logitech MX900. It rocks. Maps to expose perfectly for me, and I love not having to plug something into my powerbook whenever I want to use the mouse.
