    Are there any bluetooth wireless mice that will be usefull for a powerbook with bluetooth built in?

    The belkin seems to be the only option at this moment. The logitech MX900 has the recharging station built into the bluetooth module, so i assume you need to have the external bluetooth module built in.

    Any other mice out there?

    Re: Bluetooth Wireless Mouse

    how about microsoft's bluetooth mouse...
    I don't know if they sell it standalone, but if it works like my wireless intelli explorer, then it must be amazing, and I can say that the handling is perfect, plus there is 5 buttons, which is more than enough for me...

    MS Mouse

    I'm using Microsoft's Bluetooth mouse (you can buy it by itself). It seems to be the only one that's actually shipping - excluding Apple's of course. Works well out of the box; no software/drivers required (I doubt MS would provide them anyway!)

    The only downside to this mouse - and probably to all of the others as well - is it's a bit bigger than I'd like. But they have to have room for the battery and transmission components.

    BTW buttons 4 and 5 are great for alternate Expose views - I use button 3 (pushing down on the mouse wheel) for the standard Expose view.

    someone in macnn reported using the MX900 witha 12" PB. and since a bt module is a bt module, i assume you can always connect it to the one in pb...doesn't ahve to be through the base charger. give it a try, it should work. :)
