Just wondering how well the mouse works via a KVM?

If the KVM is a straight hub (no keyboard controls: you have to push a button on a box) it won't matter whether there's a KVM in the loop or not.

If the KVM has a keyboard port and a mouse port and treats keyboards specially, it may or may not cause problems for a mouse plugged in through the keyboard port (eg, plugged in to the keyboard), but so long as the non-keyboard port can be used for multiple devices (eg, you can plug a hub in and then a mouse and a webcam or something) it should be OK.

Yeah, yeah....I noticed that today when I was "working." I read in a forum about how some guy said it actually did click from the rocking and that I think a review of it said the same thing. Oh well, Viva La PiezoElectric!

I ordered one Thursday from the Apple Store. Checked my account this morning and noticed the shipping date has been moved back from the 8th to the 15th. Sad

BTW: Got my Mighty Mouse on Friday. Very Happy

The cord is kind of short on it. You may want to move the Mac mini closer to your keyboard and mouse area if you have a big desk or pull out drawer.

Getting used to it? I'm having a hard time adjusting to mine. I like the scroll ball, shape and sofware. I don't like the top or side buttons.

I think the squeze buttons need to be moved back a hair and the scroll ball is too sensitive on the Foward & Back in Firefox. But I love the Expose & Dashboard features.

I don't think I'll be getting an MM just because of how right clicking involves not left clicking; you have to raise your left finger up. It can't be good for gaming. It would've been better if they made it look like the image here though.
