    For aesthetic factor

    Razer

    vs

    Logitech (white one)


    or introduce anything that looks good with the MBP

    For just looks I'd go with the Razor, but I prefer Logitech for use.

    I use the Apple wireless "mighty mouse" when I don't use the track pad.

    I use the MS wireless. Not pretty but functional, and the price is right.

    I use that one and it's awesome. the USB receiver is extremely tiny. you barely even know it's there.

    the actual mouse itself just about has every feature that a normal mouse would have, but in a small clamshell.

    they're pricey little mice, but well worth it.

    I currently use the Bluetooth MM for my White MacBook and of course it matches perfectly. But, I do LOVE the above mouse also. I've used it before and it's very nice for laptops because the USB connection is SO SMALL. It's about half an inch long and looks close to the size of the end of the power cord (the part that attaches to the laptop). I may be moving to this mouse once the price drops. At the moment it's just way to $$$. But, it feels and moves better than the MM

    I use the VX Revolution and the batteries just keep on going and going and going. No kidding. This set of AAA been in there for 3 months and I do use my mouse a lot.

    Hmm I'm not sure about the MX Revolution. A wireless mouse that still need plugging into the USB isnt what I'm looking for...
    I'd go with the logitech bluetooth white

    put it like this. I don't remember just exactly when I bought my VX Nano but I know it was way before Thanksgiving of last year. so at least four or five months later and I'm still using the two Duracell batteries that came with it.

    I'd say that's pretty damn good. I do however always turn the mouse off when it's not being used so that might be the reason why they've lasted so long.

    I have a silver Logitech bluetooth model: M-RBB93. No dongle, works flawlessly.

    Just don't buy a wireless mighty mouse, I had to exchange every single one (5) until I decided to just sell it, what a piece of junk!

    I have the logitech v470 bluetooth mouse and I'd give it 8/10

    I'll start with the (few) negatives:
    Cons:
    • normally when you want to wake your mac using an external mouse you move the mouse or click it, but with v470 as soon as my mac goes into sleep mode, the mouse automatically wakes up without being moved or clicked.
    • This one is just me being picky, don't know if any mouse does this; I was hoping that I could do something like hold 1st click and scroll to change volume or zoom etc, but multiple button functions don't seem possible. I have assigned all my buttons to functions so doing this would give me more functionality


    Pros:
    • It's bluetooth! therefore I don't need a dongle as macbook supports it, leaving a usb port free.
    • Despite what you might think, it is extremely power efficient. I've had it for ~3weeks now, and the batteries are at bout 85%, and I have the mouse turned on ~75% of the time.

    • There is an on/off switch on the mouse so as to saved power when packed away in ur bag when travelling for instance.

    • It only cost £30 and its white to match my macbook

    I'm very happy with my purchase :)
    Regards, B.

    I use a logitech v270. It's a great bluetooth mouse, and it's quite responsive. I got it on ebay for $26 shipped... :)

    I use a Razer DeathAdder as my on-desktop mouse. While it doesn't match the aesthetics of the MBP, it certainly is quite ergonomic and comfortable in my hand.

    I also use a Razer DeathAdder and couldn't be happier. Traditionally I've used Logitech mice and switched from a Logitech G5. The DeathAdder is amazing.

    I have the Razer Pro Click 1.6 and I'd give it an 9/10

    Pros: -Drivers are GREAT, and highly customizable
    - 7 Button Mouse
    - Extremely high DPI
    - Looks great with my MB
    - Great for gaming

    Cons: - Wired
    - Shape takes a little getting used

    I'd say get the Razer, only if your going to be using the mouse for something that needs precision or accuracy to some degree. Otherwise just go out and buy a Bluetooth Mighty Mouse.

    Anyone has any positive experiences with the BT550 Bluetooth mouse from Radtech?

    http://www.radtech.us/Products/BT550.aspx

    I was thinking about getting one if they work well. I like the fact that you can use and recharge it at the same time with the included USB cable.
