    Almost perfect.

    This is by far the most useful and intuitive mouse I have ever used. Being able to track not only up and down, but also left and right, is highly advantageous; as is the ability to customize the buttons to whatever is needed. The side buttons are also extremely convenient as they can allow you to either switch easily between windows, bring up the dashboard, or a couple other things.

    My one and only concern is the trackball. Our college library has numerous iMacs and they all have this mouse. Perhaps because they are heavily used (literally 24/7) or because no one bothers to clean their hands, not a single one of the trackballs will work anymore. You can sit there and turn it all you want but it won't scroll. However, my personal mouse has only experienced this drawback a few times and all it took to get rid of it was cleaning the ball while turning it, but this still took a few minutes of time before it would work properly.

    Apple, this is a great product, but it would be nice if we could take the mouse apart and clean the ball like we used to be able to before optical and laser mice took over the market.

    Good Mouse

    This is the most useful mouse Apple has put out. The design is great and the functions are elgant and streamlined.

    Cleaning the roller ball may be an issue. I've had mine for over a year and not had any problems. I use it everyday for at least 8 hrs at a time. Just keep your hands clean and no problems should arise with the roller ball.
