    I sometimes use a projector and PowerPoint for presentations, but find it inconvenient to sit in a corner next to my iBook just to click for each slide. Is it useful to have a bluetooth mouse for this? What sort of range is possible? Is it 'line of sight' like infra-red or will the BT signal travel through obstructions (like dozing students slumped in chairs...)
    Any advice welcome.

    with my apple bt

    i can go three rooms away and still have a connection and im pretty sure the students or people in the way wont affect it

    as long as you dont go farther than 30 or 40 ft i would say you should be ok

    I gave 4 powerpoint presentations last week with my PB. The BT mouse is a total asset for this type of work. I can go all the way to the back of the conference room, and click on a slide, to move on to the next. I have tried special remotes, and the like, however; the BT Mouse is by far the best. You won't be disapointed!

    Thanks guys - really helpful. And I won't ask which BT mouse to go for - I've just done a search and, as expected, found a million threads to read through!
