Can I use a PC mouse on a Mac?

I have two mice, one is from hp and the other is from Microsoft. I was wondering if these mice would be discoverable by my Mac (I own a Powerbook G4, a dinosaur but it still works).

  • Yes, a two button/scroll PC mouse works perfectly on a Mac. Plug them into your USB port and your Mac should recognize them. I've used one for many years and have never had a problem.

    Of course the swipe/mulitple finger features are not there but i don't really need them.
