two's better than one, part 9 the Logitech V470

You might remember that I bought a Logitech V470 Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks with Bluetooth Technology (the white one) in March for my MacBook Pro. Today's window shopping (in Westfield Chatswood and Chatswood Chase), I bagged one another Logitech mouse, exactly the same model and same colour.

Presenting two Logitech V470 Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks with Bluetooth Technology (the full name is pretty lengthy I know):

The left one is the older one bought in March, and the right one is the new one for replacing my Apple Wireless Mighty Mouse. (I did not clean the old one before the photo. It was in pretty good condition.)

What was wrong with Apple Wireless Mighty Mouse? It still works great, but the scroll ball does not work that well. (It requires constant cleaning.) Also, Apple Wireless Mighty Mouse drains batteries pretty quick. (batteries don't last long in bluetooth mice) (To Don: Antony is poor, he can't afford expensive Lithium batteries) I am not sure if that was due to the "laser" or "Bluetooth" or the combine of both, I have to replace two AA batteries on Apple Wireless Mighty Mouse quite frequently.

The Logitech V470 is also a laser and Bluetooth one like the Apple Wireless Mighty Mouse.

And why did I buy another Logitech V470 mouse? Well, Myer is offering $20 off on this mouse. I've used one, and I quite like it. Also, this is the only Bluetooth mouse offered by Logitech, all other cordless mice are RF technology. If I go for a regular cordless mouse, I would need to plug in an RF receiver into one USB port, which is sort of ugly. All Mac computers have Bluetooth built-in. I am sure Don would agree that: it would be a waste not to use the built-in Bluetooth feature.

Time to pair my new Logitech V470 to my iMac. I might need to label them since they both look the same. (To Don: Antony is poor.)

There seems no stopping you Antony, in your headlong rush into fiscal disaster!
I suggested to you yesterday, that no good would come from visiting the North Shore of Sydney and going to Chatswood Chase shopping mall!!

Apple opened a (mini) Store in Chatswood Chase recently. How can I not paying a visit?
The other shopping centre isn't that bad.

Were you successful in pairing the V470 with the iMac? I have a V470 from my iBook days and I have been unsuccessful in getting it recognized by my 2 week-old iMac. Thanks, in advance, for your insight.

Yes, it is very easy.
Just disconnect any USB mouse and turn off all other Bluetooth mouse and restart your Mac, the Bluetooth Device assistance will launch.
If the Mac can't see your V470 mouse, simply try to turn it off and back on, or press the connect button at back.
Hope this helps.
