The trackball on my wired mighty mouse has died. I know you can get brand new mice for a Mac, but $110 is a bit on the steep side.

 

Anyone else found a mouse that looks like it belongs with the mac but isn't $100+? Bonus if it has silver or aluminium to match the keyboard.

Underneath your post one of the pop-up ads (from Amazon) was for the Veo wireless mouse for Mac. Looks a lot like the new magic mouse in terms of appearance (all white), but price is $7.99 US.

 Good old advertising, what can't it dolaughing. I can't see the same ad, but I have had a look by plugging Veo mouse for Mac into Google. Looks like the ones on Trademe as well. Will check it out, thanks.

Ads are sometimes good - even though I could I always have them showing (both to check quality and sometimes they do show something relevant).

 

Anyway, Veo mouse on Amazon if you can't see the ad.

I have an old Apple mouse here - not using anymore since wife's Mac died and we moved her to a Windows laptop.

 

If you want it, flick me a PM with your address.
