I want a bluetooth mouse for my soon to be new powerbook.. so whats the best one out there? the only one that I know of is microsoft's. If thats the best one then I'll buy it but is there anyone out that is either just better or more reliable of a connection?

well as far as i know its the only one. my friend got it and i played with it and it was nice. range was excellent too. it worked very well with my built in bluetooth. only problem is that you cant get it seperatly i think. you have to get it with the keyboard. keyboard is nice too, but you cant use all the functions yet i believe because apple wrote the drivers for the bluetooth, not microsoft.

are you sure you cant buy it without the keyboard? Im running out right now but when I get back i'll call my friend which I could of sworn he said he bought the mouse for his sony vio and never saw him with any keyboard to it.

I bought mine separately for my 17". It can cost you a victory during a video game due to skips in cursor movement, but I guess it is tolerable for internet use and such. Range looks like at least 3 times as good as my regular Logitech wireless mouse. Having no dongle attached to your Powerbook is a big plus too. Don't say I didn't warn you about the skips though. I hear another BT mouse possibly from Apple is comming. I might wait for that if I were you.
