    Hi all
    Have just ordered a new Powerbook and am looking for bluetooth mice that will be portable (ruling out the logitech mx900 with its docking thingy) and small (ruling out the heavy, bulky microsoft intellimouse with bluetooth). there doesnt seem to be much out there apart from the Trust MI-5300M Bluetooth Optical Mini Mouse. Can anyone answer the following questions:

    1)will it work with os x? (is bluetooth universal or will it be more a question of the software provided not working on a mac)
    2)has anyone used it and would recommend/warn me off it?
    3)can anyone suggest a reasonably priced alternative?

    thanks a lot

    Radtech offers a pretty good one, it's REALLY small though, and runs out of juice fairly quickly, because it uses AAA. I was disappointed by the materials (feels like cheap plastic) but it does what it needs to. Made for Mac!

    You only have to use the MX900 dock as a charging base (assuming your 'Book has Bluetooth). If you want to buy/carry AA batteries for every 2-3 days of use, that's fine. You don't have to carry the dock at all.
