What purpose does that stupid Apple mouse serve?

Every time I have to use a Mac they insist on using that stupid white mouse with no scroll wheel and no right click function. Why on Earth would you want that over an actually usable mouse?

It has a touch scroll "wheel". It does have a right click.

Any other problems related to things you don't know how to use?

It might have the ability to right-click, but with the whole thing being a giant button, you tend to right-click when you left-click, and vice-versa. It's a stupid mouse.

Those are almost always disabled and don't work, and since it's probably not your Mac you are using you can't go in and enable them. I've had to use Macs at school and work and it's miserable. I started just bringing my own mouse to use instead of using the apple ones

Even if it does, as said it's a very inferior way of doing it. What I'm asking is, what purpose do they serve over a regular mouse? Why would you ever use one of them instead using a normal mouse with normal buttons and a scroll wheel, especially since a lot of mice have side buttons that can do other things too.

Search it and see, you won't find anything but links to buy Apple mice and reviews on the different models

I can't count the number of MBP owners I've had to help who have had the right click function disabled. I don't know how they even computer.
