    Replacement mouse

    I haven't seen a Mac in years but maybe someone could assist me please?

    A teacher has a Mac at home and the mouse is iffy.

    Can she just buy an ordinary USB PC mouse or does she have to get a special Apple one?

    regards
    Simon

    Re: Replacement mouse

    I use a 5 button M$ optical wheelmouse ... done me fine for the last 3 years and if I have to use a Mac somewhere I will take the Apple mouse out and put this in in (unless there is a Mighty Mouse connected)

    Re: Replacement mouse

    Yes, any USB mouse will be fine.

    Most mac apps are even written to make use of a right button, most apps will bring up context menus etc.

    Apple started supplying single button mice because they wanted the user experience to be simple with no "Is that a left click, or right click?" problem for new users.

    I must admit tho it can be a lil irritating and i do find myself using my third finger in an attempt to press the non existent right mouse button sometimes but thats coming from a windows environment every day
