# hahaha mice mostly.
Macs are ok I guess. The problem is quite a bit of the software I use isn't available on a Mac.

# 8? My 65 button mouse is the best. Takes up 2 ft sq of desk space though.

# a decent mouse? yeah.
Apple keyboards are very nice, but the mice/mouses/mousees leave a lot to be desired.

# But the new ones...
They have little scrolly wheels that - shock horror - go up and down and sideways.

# Mighty mouse?
The mighty mice are pretty good. Although it doesn't look like they're 2 button, it does actually detect whether you're clicking on the right or left side, and it's got a scroll 'wheel' on top which also moves side to side as well.

You can also set it to do something when you squeeze the sides of it as well, but that's a bit weird.

Still, it's expensive compared to other mice, but what do you expect, it's a bloody Apple :-D

# Mouse
Uhh, Microsoft doesn't make them either. Solution to problem = buy USB mouse of choice, plug into USB Apple running os9 or later, there is no third step. I bought a cheap red eye optical USB wheel+two butttons mouse on e-bay a few months ago and it works fine (a lot cheaper than the mighty as well).
