With the portable Intel Imacs, the right click is easily dealt with: one 
places two fingers on the trackpad and clicks with the thumb. Two 
fingers on the trackpad also allows one to scroll easily.

With my miniMac (powerpc), I use a logitech wireless trackball. 
Right-click works with that in the normal manor. I was for nearly 30 
years a non-Mac kinda guy. No longer.
