My main question, but I think I already know the answer:

Can you adjust the weight? Is it a light mouse, or is there some heft to it? I've gotten used to heavier mice (My G5 is my fave ever simply because I can max out the adjustable weight on it) and can't stand ones that are so light they feel like they're empty inside.

You cannot adjust the weight, but I'd say it's a medium weight mouse.

Where?? On their website it is listed as $89.99, and isn't that the same price it was when you reviewed it? On Amazon, I'm seeing it go for around $100 on average, with a few open-box and refurbs going for around $50. I'm tempted with the open box...

Not a sale in the discount sense. I mean it is available for purchase.

Can you test something for me Ghost?

Do you have access to a USB1 or unpowered USB2 port, and if you do, can you tell me if that mouse works?

I have a very limited number of working USB ports ( thanks to my daughter and a laptop fall, all the USB ports on one side of my machine dont work ) and I power my existing mouse (fob) using the USB port on my keyboard, so this is kinda key to me.


Bonus marks if you can test it on the same type of keyboard ( Mac aluminum )

Apologies for the delay, it does not appear to work on unpowered USB ports.

I keep thinking about buying this, but then I remember that it uses the Avago ADNS-9500 sensor, which has acceleration built into the sensor itself. I read that you can tweak the amount, but can't remove it completely. I wish I knew someone who owned one so I could test it
