    The mouse works wonderfully on my Macbook Pro. I was actually able
    to go into the Logitech Control Center and assign it specific search
    functions. I press a button and GOOGLE or YAHOO search comes up. I
    can also program it if I wish to bring up FINDER.

    I found the mouse to be very responsive on an ordinary tabletop
    taking away the need to have a mouse pad. The scroll wheel works
    extremely well. A simple roll of the wheel can get you from top
    to bottom of page in seconds. Also a huge plus is the fact that
    this mouse automatically powers itself off when not in use.

    The only thing missing here is a travel pouch. For some reason I
    had thought one would be included. Despite the fact there was none,
    I was able to neatly pack the mouse in my laptop bag.

    I have owned a wide array of Logitech products including their
    top-of-the line keyboards, webcams and mice. None of them have
    worked perfectly with Mac. Logitech is just not a mac-friendly
    company. This is the very first product I have bought from them
    that actually works perfectly under OS X.

    I highly recommend the Logitech VX Nano for anyone that wishes
    to ditch their trackpad for the comfort of a mouse.

    Ron, one of the issues I'm having with my VX Revolution (not nano) is that when I'm turning the mouse ON (after leaving it off for the night to conserve batteries), sometimes I would get a grey screen overtake my MBP that said I needed to shut down the computer and restart. There is no explanation for this.

    Do you experience this with your nano and MBP, Ron?

    Paul,

    Not as of yet. I hope that issue gets worked out on your end.

    Do you know the operating frequency (2.4 GHz)? And how does it feel?

    Do your wireless mice have the same responsiveness as wired mice?

    The Microsoft Mouse I tried, which operated at 28 MHz I think, moused well but it lost clicks. I had to use a longer than normal mouse click to get them to register at times. It just felt off. I've been wary of getting a wireless mouse since.

    I'm looking at a couple of 2.4 GHz mice, hoping they'll be better. But, maybe it will be worse, with all the 2.4 GHz devices around here. [​IMG]
