it's on apple's homepage. attractive!

i just bought my Logitech MX1000. It's wireless and based on new laser technology. nice feeling. but,.... shall i return it and get this new apple one?

Do it!!!! You owe it to the apple corporation.

I'm going to buy one. It's neat and matches the rest of my hardware. CPUsed said they were getting them in 2 weeks. I can't wait that long. Does anyone know if Carbon or Yorkdale are getting them earlier?

I can't see the Apple mouse being better than an MX1000. Program the scroll wheel to trigger Expose, left/right mouse tilt for Spotlight or Dashboard.

The logitech is very responsive, ergonomic (No carpal tunnel) has a great linear mouse movement, great battery life, and another two buttons to assign to other tasks.

yah, we definitely need more discussion here.

and i do feel Logitech MX1000 provides satisfactory mousing experience. the bit heavy weight actually gives more solid feeling. but.... mac's white is truely a visual match, plus it has two buttons and wheel.... another hard decision.

I really want to get the Mighty Mouse, I've always dreamed of a mouse like it, but all they have to do now is release a Bluetooth version, then i'd buy it, considering I already have an Apple wired mouse, and I really need a Bluetooth.

How much, can be said, about a mouse ? ? ?

OK, Apple finally did it, it now offers a scrolling mouse, SO ! ! !

Holy crap, they finally have a two button mouse.

Although the one button was more attractive. And does that scroll ball physically rotates around or is it like a touchpoint?

That said I'll stick with my Microsoft Intellimouse Wireless Explorer 2.0 and to simonca I suggest you stick with your Logitech, it's an amazing mouse your have.
