    So I'm looking for a bluetooth mouse to go with my computer (since I don't like having a receiver taking up space on my computer's USB ports (It doesn't look good IMO). I really want a regular two-button mouse. I was wondering what the best Bluetooth mouse there is that isn't a Magic Mouse? I really only need about 3-4 buttons and I have a 100$ budget.

    The Magic Mouse is an awesome mouse. Not sure why you wouldn't want it.

    If you're dead set though, check out the Razer Orochi.

    I don't want the Magic Mouse because I found it way too awkward to use in store. I couldn't click the left and right button down at the same time (important to me) and didn't feel right in the hand.

    I use the razer orochi obsessively, and you have the option to plug it in if the batteries run out.

    I use a Razer Orochi, it's both Bluetooth and USB.
    In Bluetooth mode some of the features are handicapped or disabled, i.e. only two of the four side buttons function, the DPI resolution is limited, the driver only supports custom functions when wired.

    I use Better Touch Tool to make the most of the two thumb buttons and it's my everyday mouse. Tracking is excellent on most surfaces.

    The only mouse I'd even consider would be the Logitech MX 5500 Bluetooth but strangely it's only available with a keyboard bundle :confused:
    It's also a fairly large mouse.

    For the money, I haven't found anything better than this yet.

    I think I'm gonna give that one a try. I'm just leery of anything bluetooth after reading of issues w/ such devices in Lion.

    +1 for the Razer Orochi. I mostly use it when it's plugged in via USB, but the option to use it via Bluetooth is good to have.

    I have the Microsoft bluetooth 5000 mouse also and it works just fine. No complaints at all.

    -1 for the Orochi. It is the only BT mouse I have ever used that had a noticeable lag when waking up. It works when plugged in, but if I wanted a wired mouse I would not have gotten one with BT.

    It's overpriced too.
