    Don't say next as if you just shrugged off an easy answer, you've identified two of the main issue with apple in your arrogant response.

    1. You need to buy an extra peripheral on an already ridiculously over priced machine.

    2. Of course that doesn't really help the fact that you need a Microsoft mouse to use an apple machine, already showing that it is difficult to use the 'right click' function that the average user will never figure out.

    This really does seem to be a series of pretty great counter-examples to the "Macs just work, they're simple and intuitive" statement that gets tossed around so much.

    if you consider real-user experience vs false misconceptions by a few who have probably never touched one before

    The first thing you might notice — or not notice — is the button. The entire trackpad is the button, so you can click anywhere. Without a separate button, the spacious trackpad gives your hands plenty of room to move on the large, silky glass surface. Use two fingers to scroll up and down a page. Pinch to zoom in and out. Rotate an image with your fingertips. Swipe with three fingers to flip through your photo libraries. Swipe with four fingers to show your desktop, view all open windows, or switch applications. If you’re coming from a right-click world, you can right-click with two fingers or configure a right-click area on the trackpad. The more you use the Multi-Touch trackpad, the more you’ll wonder what you ever did without it.

    The fact you are explaining this idiotic process is just furthering proving it is not as easy as you think it is.

    can you post something that doesn't include ridiculous / stupid / idiotic / ignorant / retarded , etc.
    it adds nothing to the credibility of your statements

    I proved you wrong about 2 pages ago, you keep adding to it. If you took the hint, you'd stop digging your hole.
