Hardware :: Looking For A Good Wireless Mouse

Sep 17, 2008

i'm planning on buying a macbook soon (upon the update, whenever and however it may come), and was thinking that i might want a mouse to use with it, in case the trackpad doesn't suit my wants or needs. i'm looking for a 5-button, wireless one, with a scroll wheel, and i really don't want to pay more than $30 or so for it.

what kind of mouse do you use if you dislike the trackpad on your mb/mbp?

MacBook Pro :: Mouse Pad Stopped Working But Wireless Mouse Works?

Jun 27, 2014

Every once in a while the mouse pad will stop working. A wireless mouse will work in its place.  The keyboard will also act extremely slow during this time.  It seems like the buffer is full and it moves on to the next letter i type without using the previously typed letter.

Intel Mac :: Wireless Mouse & Wireless Keyboard Flashing Green?

May 23, 2012

I have changed both sets of batteries. Turned them off and back on multiple times. Only reason I am able to ask this question is because I'm using my phone. I need my computer back. No I don't have a wired mouse or keyboard laying around. The mouse isn't registering or moving on the screen. The keyboard was working until I tried turning it off and back on. Now nothing is working.

IMac :: Magic Mouse Is A Wireless Mighty Mouse

Dec 14, 2009

My new Magic Mouse appears as a wireless Mighty Mouse on my iMac 10.6.2. When I open the mouse Preferences Panel, I get the options for the Mighty Mouse, not the Magic Mouse. It worked fine on my hackintosh with 10.5.8 but not with 10.6.2, so it seems the culprit might be in 10.6.2? It seems that USB Overdrive is the culprit for some, but I don't have it.

Is there a decent 802.11n wireless router around $50~80? I mainly use it for p2p (bt) downloading and watching video. I'm currently using WRT54GL but it will be painfully slow after some time of consistent bt downloading.

Hardware :: Good Bluetooth Gaming Mouse?

Jan 27, 2009

I actually have the Apple Mighty Mouse, and while I kinda love it for normal use, the scroll ball is terrible for gaming (way too sensitive and easily stucks when dirty!). I mostly play Blizzard Games (Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo), no fps, no sport games. Only bluetooth suggestions please. Bonus: good look and not too small

OS X :: How To Reset Wireless Mouse Preferences

Sep 24, 2010

I typically use a very basic Microsoft wireless mouse (this one), but recently I plugged in a wired Apple mouse (this one, I believe).

I then decided to go back to my Microsoft mouse and now all the buttons are messed up. Left and Right work fine but now the Wheel button opens my Dashboard and the left Side button sends me into All Windows mode.

I used to have both of them programmed to 1) open links I clicked on in new tabs and 2) select and open links in new tabs in Firefox with Snap Links Plus.

I'm assuming the Apple mouse switched some things around but I can't for the life of me figure out how to get back to my original settings. I check the preferences in Firefox, Snap Links Plus and on my system but I can't find anywhere to reprogram my mouse.

I don't remember how I originally did it but I think it just sort of programmed that way automatically.

Hardware :: Best Wireless Mouse With Arthritis?

Nov 27, 2009

At long last, I have my mother dipping into the modern world, the proud owner of a new MacBook. What didn't cross my mind until I began teaching her how to use a computer is that with arthritis, the drag-and-drop movement is tough...truthfully, it's next to impossible on a trackpad unless she uses one hand to click/hold and the other to drag.

I'd love to give her a wireless mouse for Christmas, alleviating the pain and awkwardness of drag-and-drop. Need to keep it simple since I doubt she ever becomes a hard core user.

Is the new magic mouse a good fit, or too sensitive/complex for a new user with limited flexibility? Or is it actually the perfect option? Is there a better option out there? Really need your collective wisdom here.....

OS X :: My Wireless Magic Mouse Won't Scroll

Apr 15, 2010

I just received a used magic mouse that I bought, and it paired alright in terms of whether the machine (macbook late '07, running 10.5.8) recognizes it and I click just fine (both primary-button and secondary-button), but I can't seem to get it to scroll, in any direction. Am I missing something or was this just somebody offloading their faulty mouse on me?

Jul 5, 2012

i have been using my wireless keyboard and mouse with no probs until today-installed updates this morning-since I restarted have been unable to use either device-have tried everything Apple suggests to do- re-pairing unsuccessfully; turned everything off and back on-sometimes the Bluetooth says it is connected, othertimes not-but even when it says it is connected the keyboard/mouse don't work; put in new batteries-no go also; bluetooth icon is on.

Power Mac G5 :: Will Wireless Mighty Mouse Run Without Other Hardware

IMac :: Use Wireless Keyboard & Magic Mouse?

Jan 5, 2011

I've been lurking around this forum for a few weeks, gathering information to decide what Mac I wanted to order. I appreciate all the information that is available here! I took the plunge this afternoon and thought I should register as I'm sure I'll have questions in the coming weeks. I played around with an iMac at an Apple Store a few months back and kicked around buying one. I really enjoy my iPhone and my iPad, but I kept thinking about the iBook G4 that has been gathering dust because I never really took the time to learn the Mac OS. Then my Windows laptop quit and I had to send it off for repair. I dug out the iBook and that put me over the edge. For whatever reason, I had no problems figuring out the OS this time around. I've been trying to figure out how to justify an iMac ever since. Today I ordered a refurbished 21.5" iMac from Apple's refurbished site. I ended up ordering over the phone -- I called Apple to ask a couple of questions, and when I mentioned that Amazon offered Apple Care cheaper, the sales rep gave me a discount on the Apple Care. Plus, I got a free (after rebate) AirPrint-capable printer. So, I think I ended up with a pretty good deal. After all that, I'll get to my question -- do you use the wireless keyboard & magic mouse? They seemed fine when I was using them at the Apple Store, but that was just for a short time. I'm wondering how I will like them when I'm editing photos or typing a long document (I deal with all the numbers I can handle at work, so I don't do much at home that would require the number keypad).

Hardware :: Wireless Keyboard / Mouse Compatible With Mac / PC?

Jan 6, 2009

I just got a new Macbook and I'm loving it! I also have a desktop PC, although I much prefer using the Mac I have some programs and such that can only be on PC or that I cannot afford to buy for Mac. The one issue about having a laptop is that I find typing when at my desk quite difficult, and have started getting back and shoulder ache from leaning forward to type. I thought about getting a wireless keyboard (and maybe a mouse too) so that I can use a keyboard for the Mac when at my desk. The thing is, I already have a PC keyboard and mouse on my desk and have limited space. Is there an option for a wireless keyboard that is compatible for both PC and Mac? And is it possible to have one keyboard and mouse for two computers? I probably won't be using the two at the same time ever.

OS X :: Cannot Get Back - Wireless Logitech Keyboard And Mouse?

Jan 11, 2009

I just set up bootcamp on my iMac and windows is working great. The only problem is I cannot get back into OSX. I left my apple keyboard at home, and am now using a wireless logitech keyboard and mouse. When I boot up my computer, I hold down the windows key 'option' when the grey screen comes up, but the options of what to boot never comes up. What am I doing wrong? And if its because I need the apple keyboard, is there any workaround? I'll be stick in windows for weeks if thats the issue.

OS X :: Pairing Wireless Keyboard And Mouse With IMac?

Mar 10, 2009

I'm about to order my first iMac and I want both the wireless keyboard and mouse, the problem is how do I pair them with the iMac? Nothing will be wired in the first time its turned on so how will i be able to do anything - such as tell the iMac to look for the wireless kit? I don't have an old USB keyboard or mouse, so unless the iMac is clever enough to look the first time its turned on i'm stuffed. I don't want to have to buy a separate USB mouse just to tell it I have a wireless mouse, defeats the object!

OS X :: Wireless Mighty Mouse Slows Down - Little Jerky

May 12, 2009

When using my iMac, all of a sudden, my Wireless Mighty Mouse suddenly slows down. So if I move my mouse across the screen, it lags behind and appears a little jerky/erratic. It seems as if there is something hogging the system resources and that is slowing down the movements of the mouse.

MacBook Pro :: USB Extension Cable Or Get A Wireless Mouse?

Jun 21, 2009

Whats with all the ports on the left hand-side on all the uMBP's.. Looking at the cable length on my wired mouse it would not go all the way around from the left handed USB ports to the right hand side as I'm right handed like the majority of the entire worlds population.So whats that mean? I either have to buy an USB extension cable or get a wireless mouse?!? Also, I prefer to have my MBP on the left with my Larger display on the right. This makes it more limiting cable wise in order to achieve this.
