    I've used or owned most of them. My pick, the Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer.

    I have the Kensington StudioMouse Wireless and love it. It has a base to recharge the batteries.

    i have the IntelliMouse Explorer too and like it as well but its heavy compared to other mice. And you have that big sensor you have to plug into a usb port. I solved that problem by getting a laptop bag that doesnt require you to remove the computer from the bag... i just put the mouse sensor in one of the pockets and leave it plugged in to the computer. It works. Now if your computer had bluetooth then you could just buy a bluetooth mouse and the two devices should be able to sense each other without any extra hardware. there arent many out there so i dont think you'll have a hard time choosing.

    Only one mouse should be on anyone's mind right now:

    I agree with Funkatation and FuzzyBallz. The Logitech travel mouse is the best non-Bluetooth wireless mouse that I have seen for the notebook. I own one myself. If I wanted a Bluetooth mouse I would also opt for "The Mouse" like t300 mentioned.

    First, you have to be sure and check if bluetooth comes with your iBook, if yes, get the Logitech MX900 as many people say it's a good option for 2 buttons & scrolling, if not I recommend you to get better a wired mouse over those that need a big external adaptor... ok, it's a matter of taste, but we're here to recommend... so just listen.. ;)

    I have BT integrated and will be getting the Apple mouse soon...

    by now I'm carrying the wired version I got from a friend and it rules... again, it's a matter of taste, it has a very short wire :)
