They have changed that way back I agree I hated it too but I got me a different mouse


They have like 5 buttons and a scroll button that is 360 degrees. Just like this but not wireless.

You can also use a standard trackball mouse on a Mac as well.

Woo hoo. Mighty Mouse FTW.

I bought my Mac Mini last year for a song and have loved it ever since. it'* a great jukebox and DVD player. Also works well when my laptop is charging or the girlfriend comes over.

i also use it for some web development, but not as much now that I am in binghamton because my old roommate was big into mac web dev.

But that new MAC is looking excellent. Buy it and run it with a dual boot to OSX and Windows and be happy with both. They've been stated to run windows better than a lot of PC'* can...

This is like the 60s of the computer world. Times are a-changing, and PC people are starting to accept Mac people, and soon there will be unity, where Macs and PCs can share the same networks, the same applications and the same hardware. Times, they a-changin'.


(end anti-segregation reference)

Learning Mac OS X is simple. Once you get used to it, which may take time (which is understandable) you'll probably love it.

I dont understand that, Mac OS X is soo easy to use. What is the big difference that gets people all confused on a Mac, the only thing is things are placed in different spots and there is a dock that is for your program which is very useful. I dont get it. I work with PC'* and Macs all day there is not 1 confusion that I have to deal with besides the alt and cmd keys.
