    Should any Bluetooth mouse work with the MBP? I just received a Sony Bluetooth Mouse from Amazon and on the back of the package it doesn't list it as being compatible with OS X. Does anyone think it might not work? Cause if not, I won't open it and will return it. Thanks for any input!

    It should work as a regular mouse, but if it has extra buttons or configurable software, the buttons and/or software probably won't work.

    Well the buttons will work but any special functions other than assigning them as buttons might not work.

    I agree with post 1 & 2.

    Of note the MS BT mouse works perfectly with OSX assigning buttons to Exposé & Dashboard etc., it even works better in OSX than XP!

    Cool. Thanks. The design of the Sony Bluetooth Mouse (VGP-BMS30) goes perfectly with the MBP design and I think is the sexiest BT mouse out there!

    Yeah this should work just fine. I installed a Logitech Bluetooth Mouse on my iMac G5 and it worked just fine. No drivers or software at all.
