It's a little known secret that a regular USB optical scroll mouse
will work on a mac, and any program that installs on both mac and
windows will include right/left/scroll functions. You can even switch
the mousebuttons for a leftie, though it's trick to find, and I can't
remember where it is. I do assure you my left hand mouse with the
buttons switched works with all functionality on my IBook test machine
with OSX, so I don't see a macbook or other newer mac being any different.

Ciao for now,
