I think it's about time. It makes you wonder, though.. Apple would only have to make another Newton in order for them to singlehandedly freeze over hell!

Veddy interesting! I wonder if this isn't a sign Apple's expecting to get a lot of 'switchers' once Mactels are released. If, as the stories so far suggest, Mactels can dual-boot Windows, it would sure help to have a two (or more) button mouse.

I really like the scrolling abilities, and the programmable buttons. There goes my microsoft mouse.

This is great! But it would be hard for me to give up my BT mouse. I wonder if they'll do a wireless version? I hope so. Although, wired does work better for gaming, so...hmm.
**goes to Apple site to ponder for a while**

Now I have. Wink
But in looking for that, I also noticed there's a Windows driver included with the mouse...very odd for Apple...which seems to support the idea this mouse is partly in preparation for marketing the MacTels as dual-boot.
My theory is that the Windows capabilities of the Mactels will be marketed very low-key. I don't think Apple would want to imply that there may be something lacking in the OS X platform by promoting 'we also do Windows'. I do see it being the big seller for Mactels - two platforms for the price of one and a half Smile

Back on topic though and away from fanciful speculation, it's a cool mouse, shame about the price.

And just think about how much a wirless model would cost!

I just bought mine online. Sweetness.
