    When will there be a logitech bluetooth mouse?
    Also would bluetooth go further then the current 6 feet on logitech mice?

    I dislike wireless mice. I've tried one once.
    It's for the simple reason that the mouse needs batteries. This makes the mouse heavier, which makes it less accurate. Ofcourse this is a matter of opinion.

    I don't understand why there are not more rechargable mice with lithium ion batteries.

    can anyone tell me if a bluetooth wireless mouse is any better than the traditional ones that have been out for years. Seems kind of useless to me if the technology isn't any better. I suppose it would eliminate the need for a wireless adaptor, but only on macs with built in bluetooth in the first place.

    I sure hope someone come out with them soon, I really want one for the 12" PB im gettin! it would be awesome because u wouldnt need that stupid base... I have a micro*oft Blue one right now, and it works really well.... i actually brought it down the hall to the other side of the house and it worked lol... so it can go pretty damn far. and the batteries last forever!

    i like my wireless optical mouse. the batteries last a long time and i like the added weight. it doesnt have the range that a bluetooth mouse might have (the mouse cant be very far from the USB receiver) but i dont sit a long distance from my computer.

    I want one!

    This is my first post but ince sI have been reading these boards daily since november in anticipation of what apple would release. I was hoping for an iTablet. I ended up buying a 12" because I couldnt possibly by a G3 ibook (I just threw my performa 6400 in the trash) and couldnt possibly afford the 17". Hell, I didnt even get the superdrive (1X, youre joking). So on the bright side my new mac comes tomorrow. It has been a long time since my last purchase (remember performa 6400). So I would love to have a keyboard and mouse that I didnt even need to take 5 seconds to plug in. I really am serious and I think I will wait until they come out with one. And now the ultimate would be a bluetooth monitor. Imagine you could just come into work set your laptop down turn on the monitor and start working! So is anyone making a docking station for the 12" yet? I dont think I'll be able to sleep because my new toy will be here in the morning!

    bluetooth range is similar to current wireless mouse range, ~6 feet.

    It would be absolutely impossible to have a bluetooth monitor. People don't seem to realize how slow bluetooth is. its not even 1/11th the speed of USB. That is super slow. its about as fast as the old apple desktop bus (ADB) connections.

    I won't even comment about an iTablet. I've ranted enough about how I think its a terrible idea in the past. I think you'll love the 12 incher PB.

    bluetooth range is actually not that great. it operates @ a low frequency, and response time is not great (for gaming that is). I have the logitech mx700 and it's a million times better than any bluetooth mouse, with the fastest response time (highest frequency) for gaming, and the cradle recharges the included NiMH batteries in no time. Most of the time I leave mine out of the cradle, especially overnight, and I never once have had a problem with no battery life.

    you want wireless, forget bluetooth, get the mx700.

    Here's a great idea, why not put a Gumstick Ion battery in it, and it echarges over Bluetooth, it could be done so easy, you'd need to change the battery ever year, it would be lite and cheap.

    It would be like a pro mouse without a cord
