    I don't get what they would change. OH WAIT, lets put on 1 mouse button instead of two... no that cannot be it. I don't get the big change.

    what a marketing ploy...

    I've used a 4 year old razed mouse on my mac forever. Furthermore any USB mouse I've ever used hasworked on my mac.

    Yea.. I think the white look is the only thing different. I guess since it is being shipped to Apple Stores Razer wanted to make them feel special or something.

    I'm confused, when I plugged my Razor into a mac, it recognized it and worked fine. What is the difference between a "Mac" mouse and a "non-Mac" mouse?

    LOL, a gaming mouse... for the Mac. Yeah, you really gotta have a cutting edge mouse while playing minesweeper. Who's running Razer these days, Epic Fail Guy? Besides, it's just a mouse... I can't see why in the hell you would need to specifically design a mouse for Mac. Anything should work.

    The same thing that's different between Mac ram, and non-Mac ram, the name and marketing.

    id games, EA games, etc. Even COD4 is supposed to release for it. Mac is slowly gaining a little steam in the gaming department.

    Your right there.. Its been a hard fought battle for mac users to get games. But They are getting it! I still remember playing Unreal and Starcraft on the G3's at my high school... Those where the day!

    just RMA'd my Deathadder today :)

    bought in September last year and the left mouse button as gone already ,for a mouse that cost me £40/$80 you would think itd last longer than that.NOT happy :(

    But,to be fair to Razer they did sort me out with RMA details via email quickly.

    Also, don't forget you can have Windows on Macs now. So even Windows gamers have a reason to want Mac mice now. And Macs really are slowly getting good games.

    That being said, this is ridiculous to see it branded as specificallyf or Mac. If you want one that matches a Mac, I'd look no further than the Razer Pro|Click. http://www.razerpro.com//index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=12&Itemid=45
