    I have the Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop 4000. It's both a keyboard and mouse, but they're both Mac compatible and Windows compatible, but that's according to the box. It works great with my MacBook Pro. The mouse is the Wireless Optical Mouse 2.0.

    But I've heard Logitech is good as well.

    microsoft wireless optical notebook mouse works fine
    it's got a usb adaptor for the wireless thingy that u can put under the mouse when you're carrying your laptop and it shuts it down to save battery power
    and the battery lasts for like 3 months so its ace!

    I have a Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse 2.0. I bought it to use with my kVM switch for my Dell and Mac mini. Anyhow, the software doesn't work with Intel Macs (a shame; I liked being able to program the buttons for things other than F9, F10, F11, and F12,) but it is a wonderful mouse that fits perfectly in the hand. Relatively cheap too, if you get it online ( http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_getprod.php/masterid=3027885 .) Don't go to the store to buy one!! Best Buy sells this mouse for $60, Target for $50... you can get it online for less than $20. Anyhow, works great with both Windows and OSX.

    EDIT: I use my computer for hours each day, and in 14 months, I've only replaced the batteries twice.

    EDIT #2: Turns out there is a software update allowing this mouse to be fully programmed with Intel Macs ( http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/14205 )

    Dont forget the Logitech bluetooth V270.
    Great blooth tooth mouse and I havent had to change or recharge the batteries in 4months.
    All in all, I wish I could replace all of my mice with the v270 without having to buy a bluetooth dongle.

    My logitech v200 is a great mouse. the usb dongle clips in underneath and it has been on the same batery for like 5 months:D
    very nice to use and I've never had a problem with it (except when i tried to use it on a glass table [silly me, laser goes through glass:eek: ])
    it is three button (two + wheel) wheel scrolls left/right up/down

    the v500 is nice as well.
