I had absolutely no problems in setting up the SlimBlade BT mouse for use with my MacBook. Press the power button that is hidden under the slidable trim and look for the green power indicator on the opposite side to glow solid green for three seconds, then depress the mode switch that is located at the scroll wheel for three seconds and you’re ready to go for regular use as a mouse. The SlimBlade is a full featured laser mouse that just performs two functions, both very well.
Over the years, I’ve used just about every type of mouse out there: Apple’s one-button mouse, trackballs, corded and wireless, small and large, two button up to multi-button. I even used the Kensington Turbo Mouse (version 3) during the mid-90’s and enjoyed its capabilities and ease of use. Fast forward to the present time and here I am using Kensington’s Expert Mouse, the descendent of the Turbo Mouse. How does it hold up?
The two most important things with a mouse are how it feels in your hand, and how well you can fine tune the tracking and scrolling to your liking. I don’t have big hands, but I like my mouse on the larger side. My hands tend to get sore with a mini mouse, and the BTMouse has the best feel of any mouse I’ve ever used.Read More

Macally’s rfMOUSE (rf) and rfMOUSEJR (rfJR) are two great wireless mice. The rf is an oversized mouse which fits nicely in your hand, while the rfJR is a smaller mouse (a little shorter than the standard Apple Mouse, but with more bulk) geared toward the laptop market, but perfectly usable on a desktop machine.

A lot of products on the market state they are Mac compatible, but really aren’t. Sure, they might work on a Mac, but most of the functionality is Windows only. This is the case with the IOGEAR Wireless RF Keyboard/Optical Mouse. The IOGEAR website states that this set is Mac compatible from 10.2 on, but this set is really made for a Windows machine.Read More

A mouse is a mouse is a mouse, no? Well, no, not really. Everyone reading this probably has a mouse nearby, even if you are using a Trackpad on a PowerBook. But there are times, especially graphic manipulation, where using a mouse is simply easier and more accurate.Read More
