We only have that one Lisa 2 mouse, though, and it is on the Lisa! Got
a spare? ;)
Electrically and mechanically they are the same as the M0100? But the
housing matches the Lisa 1 mouse with the wider button? I always
(incorrectly) assumed the Lisa 1 and 2 used the same mouse.
And TIL about quadrature mice. Thanks!
