The topic says it all, is the price for the wireless and the laser tracking worth it???

I would say no, because they both suffer the same problem with the mini roller-ball failing all too regularly.
Do a search for this problem and you'll find some users in a constant cycle of sending them back to Apple for new replacements, which in turn fail, etc, etc.

And others can use Vista without problems, in each case this does not mean these items are great products.

I'm on my second wired mouse since August and this one I'm now having to start to clean the little scroll ball on. Once I started having to clean the first one it went down hill pretty quick after that.

I have a new technique on this one though I put the scroll ball to my mouth and blow like hell into it. Seems to be doing the trick at the moment.

I got my mouse with the iMac, but if I was buying a replacement mouse I would buy a pc mouse even a microsoft one Embarassed before I would buy an apple one.

The mice are great looking, and nice to use mice when they are working but the build quality on that scroll ball is terrible and they are very expensive mice so should be better.

Its only the applecare thats stopped me throwing the apple mouse in the bin and buying a new microsoft one to replace it.

The two things I've discovered about the Mighty mouse is you have to start cleaning it before it needs it (too late at that point) and it's just a matter of time before it fails if you are a smoker.

Tip to Mighty Mouse owners....

Don't surf the web while eating chicken wings.

-JK-

To be honest, I have used a mighty mouse for at least 3 years and never had a problem. This is the first I am hearing of this problem.

Apple's MM was introduced Aug 2005 (28 months ago), just over 2.5 years.
So maybe you were privileged to a pre-release Beta mouse?

I'm not a huge fan of Mice anyway... why not try out a tablet? I've been using a WACOM Graphire for over a year now and it's perfect (except during games). Even if you aren't drawing...
