I haven't updated my mouse since I bought the mx310. I bought the G500 excited about using the programmable buttons, not knowing there wasn't even support for macs. Are you kidding? I usually do my research before buying anything, but this didn't even cross my mind because it makes no sense! It makes me want to take back all my logitech items.
I never actually get responses from official forums like this, but maybe somebody knows if they even have plans for the G-series?

G500 works with Macs no problem, their just a pain to configure properly as you need a PC OS to fully configure the unit. The problem is down to the G500 having an onboard memory, using Setpoint on the PC lets one reconfigure all the buttons on the G500 without limitation. The drawback one has on the Mac is that with an off the shelve G500, all the buttons except the top 2 (the DPI -/+) are seen by such programs as USB Overdrive/ControllerMate/SteerMouse. So out of the 10 buttons on the mouse you can configure all but two with the aforementioned software. If you want to configure the DPI -/+ buttons then all you need to do is find a PC or boot up 7/XP under bootcamp/Parallels and run Setpoint. For note when the DPI -/+ buttons are re-mapped, they are still not recognised by the aforemetioned Mac applications.
