Mouse on the G5 is a white Apple USB mouse, single button variety. iMac mouse is a Mighty Mouse, (absolutely loath the nipple on that thing. (Grrrr...)) but it's not used as there's a Wacom tablet attached. Hackintosh has a Wacom tablet and no mice.

iMacIntel, G5 and Hackintosh all have aluminum Apple keyboards attached. Prefer them to most other keyboards because I can't type for nuts.

Hehe, Wacom tablets are cool. I've got a small Artpad II connected to my Amiga - using the Serial port ;-) Do you know ArtRage? It's a very simple-styled paint program for the Mac, but you can create real good pictures with it. These two are not from me, of course.

Well, I love the Wacoms to bits. Can't do the 'arty' stuff with a mouse these days though. The stylus is just so much more intuitive for a bloke who grew up using pencils, crayons, paintbrushes etc.

The Wacom attached to the G5 is an older version that uses an iMate ADB>USB adapter since there's no serial bus on the tower. Still works after all these years though. God I'm getting old.

I use Adobe's CS3 on the G5. And trialling CS4 (some apps apparently require an Intel proc, so don't know how that'll work out). CS3 currently on the iMac. I'm going to attempt CS4 on the Hackintosh as a trial - just haven't found the time.

Neat pix, by the way.

I didn't found a nice painting program for the Mac yet. I'm using TVPaint Animation Pro, for this I have to open a virtual Windows But I know this prog from Amiga times and still like it.

In my case it's a PS/2 Synaptics trackpad and a USB Logitech G3 laser mouse...
They both do what they need to do in a great way...

I use a microsoft wireless optical mouse. I like the design but sadly the wireless sucks dick. I can't move my mouse more than 3 feet away from my wireless before the wirelessness starts to get laggy. I'm thinking of getting a mighty mouse but its expensive >_<

As we already have this thread running, i'd like to share my personal experience, on real Mac (MacBook with attached mouse) and my Hacks. I am not satisfied with mouse movements at all. Seems to me like too slow, sluggish. To be honest i have been using it for a long time and almost (but not entirely) got used to it. Recently i had to do something in Windows, and trust me, it was like a breath of fresh air. I was using A4tech X7 mouse and then Logitech MX400, also using Logitech VX nano. I tweaked mouse movements a lot with SteerMouse, MouseZoom, USBOverDrive and who knows what else, everything i could come up with. I managed to tweak acceleration to some certain level but still it is not the right movement. I shouldn't go to windows, not to see how good (at least for me) mouse moves. When i come back to OSX, it's frustrating again. Mouse curve, speed and acceleration, is just killing me.
What i have recently found is something really close to what i want with Microsoft mouse (Intelli 2 or 3, don't know exactly i borrowed it just to test). Microsoft mouse installer has its own driver, close to mouse movements under Windows.
Do you guys have such difficulties with mouse movements under OSX?

I actually find mouse movements under windows to be too fast/jerky. If i turn the tracking speed up all the way in OS X, it's also faster than i prefer. If i have it at about 2 lower than max it's nice and smooth and responsive. This is really just a matter of personal preference and after awhile you get used to either one.

Mouse? What is this "mouse"?

I came into the 21st century a while back with the Fingerworks iGesture pad. MultiTouch, baby, the one, the original, the real thing! That is, until Apple bought out the company and technology and killed off the pads.
