Logitech mouse selection

I began looking into getting a Logitech cordless optical mouse, but
things just got more confusing.
The old MX700 was very well received and worked with Linux for the
most part. However, there was contradictory advice on the kernel
needed. It seems that some managed to get the mouse to work only with
2.6, while others did a plug and play with kernel 2.4.18. Which
experience is the more typical?
Second, I'm confused by models.
The Logitech web page (still no mention of Linux at all), promotes the
new Click! family: The Click! Optical (ambidextrouis and corded), The
Cordless Click! Optical (ambidextrous; inexpensive, model 930952-0403),
and the Cordless Click! Plus Optical (right handed; more buttons).
However, there does not seem to be a Click! series in the market, but
instead the Cordless Optical Mouse (model 930616-0403).
Are these two different mouse series? Which is newer? Will the newer
series still run on the 2.4.18 kernel, or do they require yet newer
drivers? Would I do better sticking with the old and more expensive
MX700 (on RH8.0/Debian Woody)?
