    Can I use my favourite USB windows mouse on a MBP(17") or would I have to use an "Apple" mouse?

    Any mouse should work fine.

    It doesn't matter what mouse you use. Pick one of the better mice and you'll be fine.

    Most mouses can work on macs. Higher tech ones that have a ton of features sometimes are only for windows.

    I respect that your preference is a mouse.

    Yet I'd highly encourage you to learn how to use the touchpad. It's one of the best features to date. I find it so fast, accurate, functional & fun, I cannot imagine not using it.

    A mouse robs one of most of the functionality that sets OS X apart from earlier versions.

    That's my take on it. :)

    Likewise, I respect that your preference is the trackpad. However, in the vast majority of scenarios, a mouse is much, much faster and far more accurate than any trackpad. For overall speed and efficiency, the trackpad is no match for a mouse.

    Good point. I agree.

    If speed is the focus I like to employ keyboard shortcuts, but that's more a reflection of my long time computer use. It's all personal preference and what ones used to.
