My only problem with my Mac is that the mouse feels so much different than from when I was on a PC... like it's less accurate.  I've tried adjusting the settings but I just can't get it right.  Pixelling feels so weird.

thats a relief, its not just me then  :-[

any way to hook up a regular 2 buton mouse on a mac?
untz untz untz?

Tutorial on how to hook up an USB multibutton mouse to a mac:

Take the usb cable and plug it in -> done   :lol:

Most usb mice work on macs no problem. I personally hate that singlebutton thingie, so i've never really used a mac with those.
Macs are great for work but bad for gaming.

its called a mighty mouse, way better than single button mouse.  If you dont wanna pay lots of money for one then just use a PC mouse plugged into usb.

The PC/mac thing is a fascinating phenomenon, indeed. I'm a PC guy. They feel like home to me, and I've grown to like some of the little quirks of Windows. Especially when my computers consistently do nothing to me, but as soon as someone else wants to use them they act up.

However, I've sat down with Macs a few times, and the first time, it was like... well, I didn't understand it. But the SECOND time it felt like stepping into a limo or something. They're beautiful machines. No matter how many smooth fades and translucency effects Microsoft try to cram into their new operative systems, they still feel rough and edgy somehow, while a Mac feels like bathing in warm butter.

That's a good thing, if you didn't know.

However, for professional and heavy stability-dependent work, like video and audio editing and rendering, I'd MUCH rather be using a Mac. I don't know how many times hours of video editing work has gone down the drain because of Windows. That just doesn't happen on a Mac.

I'm a purist when it comes to machines. i really have nothing against those who like the smoothness and the overall feel of mac's gui, but i would take a command terminal over that any day. I am the kind of guy who thinks the mouse is the silliest invention ever. It might seem strange since i am an artist, and artist's work ethic tend to demand things like a fancy gui and mouse operated programs, but i like the simplicity.
