Go to Radio Shack and buy a cheap two-button mouse. I think the Mac
mouse is an idiotic design. Sure it looks neat, but it is hardly
functional. I use Wacom drawing tablets with their cordless mice.
These have two buttons and a scroll wheel, and you can switch to the
stylus anytime you want. You can get one of their little 4 X 5 ones
for well under $ 100.
I have to confess, I have never used a mouse on my own system. I
have used them when I had to when working at client sites.
I use a trackball, generally with a foot pedal for the left click
function. Quick, easy, never run off the mouse pad, and never get a
sore hand or arm.
At the moment I am using a Microsoft product, a nice trackball with a
thumb scroll button, two left-click buttons and two right-click buttons.
I still have the foot pedal from my old Kraft trackball, which died
after 20 years of use.
I agree with Bob that a drawing tablet is very useful in some
situations, especially when trying to outline something in
Photoshop. Very difficult with a trackball, and probably not that
easy with a mouse.
