'[OT]: Using a mac without a mouse'
2001\06\10@181904 by M. Adam Davis

I recently acquired a macintosh (ok, I had to take it if I wanted the
laser printer... ;-) ) without a mouse.  I've been able to do a few
things with it (apple-o, apple-w, apple-q), but I can't seem to navigate
much of the system without a mouse.  I've heard that macs are nearly
impossible to use without a mouse, but that seems shortsighted and I
doubt apple would have done something like that.  Chances are it's just
obscure  (I hope).

So before I go to the used computer store and spend the buck or so on a
cheap mouse, could any of you give me some pointers or web pages that
show this info?  It's a centris 610 (68040, 40MHz, iirc).  I'm also
interested in hooking it up to my ethernet network, so any basic mac
info pages would be greatly appreciated.  At very least I need to know
what I'm talking about if I try to sell it on ebay...

You appearently have not see the movie "Pirates of Silicon Valley".  If you
don't think "...apple would have done something like that...", then go rent
the movie.  It's a slightly entertaining movie about the battle between
Apple and Microsoft and how they both began.

   You can operate a Mac without its keyboard, but its mouse is as
   essential as its monitor.  Go out and buy one.

   P.S.  For your Centris 610, you'll need an ADB (Apple Desktop
         Bus) mouse, not one of the newer USB mice.

Ya gotta have a mouse to use a Mac, no exceptions.

       Sure it did. No mouse, no mac. Of course, all macs comes with a mouse :o)

As single-vendor system, old macs are exceptionally well documented.

You will need a mouse, as other have said...
