Logitech MX-700, if I'm not mistaken. I've got the MX-500, which is the corded version, and love it to bits.

Kensington StudioMouse is also very nice... has a finish on the side that kind of feels like silk - also matches the color of my pb perfectly

WORST mouse EVER! The force and finger movement/action needed to use the scroll option completely negates that very feature to begin with. I couldn't have packed it up and sent it back fast enough. IMHO, the only thing that mouse has going for it is its looks. I mean they COULD HAVE designed the very same mouse with a nice unobtrusive smooth scrolling wheel. Definitely form or function with so-so usability and at a ridiculous price (insert Apple joke here ).

I wouldn't say worst mouse ever, but I definitely didn't enjoy my time with it. That touch scroll is just no good, no feed back. If you play games every once in a while (like UT2k3) there's no hope for you to scroll through weapons. Mine finally broke (read: I smashed it in a fit of rage) and I picked up a Logitech MX500 and have been in mouse using heaven since. I'm a little distrustful of wireless technology hence the corded version of the MX 700.

I think smashing a mouse in a fit of rage out of it's poor design warrants the 'worst mouse ever' tag.

I know what you mean though. I wanted to throw mine across the room after a only a few minutes. The only two companies (IMHO) that continue to make great mice is Logitech and Microsoft.

Hey man it was $30. I agree about the wheel.. it's kind of klunky. The mouse works well for me at the moment, way better than the apple optical mouse I had. They could have done a much better job with the 3 button macros- no multi key commands!! how crappy! Their control software sucks.

I do like the look, feel and general use though very much- just scrap the wheel and the software.

Haha! I guess so, but in my book, the worst mouse ever is the hockey puck. Only reason that it's still around is because it's my boss's, otherwise I would really use that thing as its name suggests.

Wow, the price really came down! When I got mine (when it first debuted) it was around $60.

I think most Australians would disagree with you there. After all, the advertising says that it's "Australia's Famous Beer". It says nowhere (and quite rightly, too) that it's actually nice to drink


Lol Im Aussie and you're right...Fosters tastes like crap...I;ve only ever seen 2 or 3 people drinking the crap....best Aussie beer is Toohey's Extra Dry...easily.

I have had them. Boag's nice but I find I get sick of the aftertaste once I've had 3 or 4 of them. As for Cascade...lol don't mind it but I wouldn't buy it.

Oh by the way I'm working on getting my pic uploaded...charging the digital camera now

Here's mine:
(and the BIG PICTURE)

It's a little outdated now. I've replaced the chair with a bigger and better one, my mouse is now a Logitech MX500, I've moved the G Gundam poster and put another in its spot, plus there are way more little mecha figures on the desk.

Complete with Lilo & Stitch frog. The laptop itself sits on a Targus CoolerPad. I felt the extra ventilation a little necessary after importing 40 CDs via iTunes and finding the case hot to the touch.

Also seen is my LaCie 120GB drive, Clie NX60U, lego racebike, and (legit) Panther 7B74 CDs

Gday Mate. Glad to hear you liked Australia, it really is a beautiful country! A lot of people here don't realise how nice it really is

I'm not far from Newcastle, about a hour and a half drive south, in a suburb called Hornsby...bout 45 minute drive from the CBD.

I've had quite a few people from overseas stay with me (Brits)...and they all seem to take a quick liking to VB and Tooheys New.

My favourite drink of late would have to be Canadian Club...not cheap over here though

Its not the same Fosters they drink in Australia. I think the real Fosters is more a "bitter" -- and may be labeled as "Special" in the U.S. (whatever they call the green can).

I've been to hornsby!
I really liked Sydney.
The one thing I didn't care for was the occasional asian-specific racist remark.
But, you know, it's just like anywhere else, including asian countries...
There are some bad, but mostly good!
And beleive me, the bad were few and far between.
I still can't decide my favorite place, but the top two would have to be frazier island (4wd rental) and surfer's paradise. OH SO GREAT.
And one of the best things about oz is what happens if you get caught with weed. A warning ticket!!! how refreshing!
I better stop before I get oz-sick (opposed to home-sick).
OH OH, and the "scenery" on the beach. You know what I mean!
laters.

I'm not sure how this thread got to talking so much about Foster's, but I thought I'd throw this one in: All the Foster's sold in the USA is brewed in Canada, eh?

Yeah, the dual wasn't available at the time, and I didn't want at BTO and wait who knows how long. Plus getting a single G5 now gives me an excuse to upgrade to a dual later

Here's mine. With a Ti/500 and Al/1.25
Though its nice having them side by side, I kinda want to replace the AlBook with a G5 tower, because of storage issues.

Where did you get those pads for your palmrest? I tried some from Targus but they left nasty imprints on the screen and wouldn't let the lid close properly.
