    I would appreciate your feedback about a mouse.

    I've been trying to decide which wireless mouse to buy for my Mac for a while. I know there is a vast choice out there and people have differing opinions about them all. But when it comes down to it, I want one that feels comfortable and is sold for a reasonable price.

    The one I like the feel of the most, for the money I intend to spend is the LX8 Cordless Laser Mouse from Logitech. This one..

    I was hoping that I could hear from anyone that is using this mouse with their Mac, and what your opinions are.

    I particularly like the positioning of the side buttons. I think its because it suits the contours of my hand and simply feels good.

    But what about compatibility with the Mac and the side buttons being in conjunction with expose etc etc?

    Many thanks in advance.

    I have a LX7 that works great using the Logitech Control Center you downlaod and install to control the button options. Expose defaults to a center wheel click but the options are adjustable, the buttons one the side I would imagine would be for the forward/back in a browser like the top ones are on mine and of course the tilt wheel works for side to side scrolling. I have had it for a couple of years now it still works without any problems and have only had to replace the batteries about a half dozen times.

    Looks nice, I might look for something bluetooth though to conserve USB ports, but i guess that depends how much of an issue that is for you.
