  • Yes, it will work but this is still the earliest version supported for this product. You will probably have software updates available under the Apple menu once connected to update the apple mouse software.

  • Yes it can, as long as you have an Apple computer with Bluetooth and OS X 10.5.8 (With a software update available for download at the finder bar at the top of the screen from the apple menu available on 10-20-09). You can buy the mouse at any Apple store and have them configure the mouse and the software upgrade to your liking. Lucky, I'm stuck with my iMac because my MacBook Pro is getting its hard drive fixed. Well enjoy the mouse and meanwhile I'll be waiting for my MacBook Pro to come back!
