    Once you go Mac you never go back.

    Anything that's not a might mouse.

    I use a Logitech track ball ("Marble Mouse") - so much better than a mouse, especially if you have a large screen. Its so good I have two - one for work and one at home.



    You can get them for $40 or less:

    Massive +1 behind this product. (I'd happily pay double the price for it).

    Consider the Microsoft Explorer Mini with Bluetrack mouse. Or the large (standard) version if you have larger hands.

    I love my MS Intellimouse Explorer...especially since the latest version whet back to the original shape!

    See if you can't drop into an Officeworks or Harvey Norman or somesuch and try a few out. I don't know if there are any heavy mice now (like the original Logitech 1000 laser mouse was) but corded mice are usually much lighter and less stressful to use as a result.

    Go the logitech. Just get something that's not too big for your hands - I use an MX-510 for work, and I find some people complain about it being too big when they use it, but for me it's just right.

    Its weird but I find the Mighty Mouse works better in my hand than any other mouse I've ever used. Strange huh, considering its designed for aesthetics not ergonomics...
