    Say what you will about MS, but they actually make pretty decent computer hardware.

    I've had no problems at all with my MS Bluetooth mouse. When you say "lags," what do you mean?

    nope. this while im actually doing something its a constant delay. I mean this is my first mac, and i use it for storage and some editing, i guess its wirless vs cordless, but every wirless mouse i ever been on hasnt had this big of a delay, also it will get real choppy at points and my wirless keyboard will disconnect which is that small little mac one.

    and plus microsoft is god.

    I had a BT wireless laser mouse 8000 a while back. It was just painful to use. The drivers were crap, the acceleration was awful, and the cursor jerked all over the screen. Bought a Logitech Performace MX and holy cow it's sooo much better.

    my 2 cents anyway.

    not sure there is anything you can do about it. call them? or warranty repair if it still has one?

    I loved my Microsoft mouse.. Used it on my Imac G3 :cool:
    It was the most comfortable mouse i have ever used... of course the new mouses blow it away... lol.

    Yeah, my new logitech is NOT BT. I always thought the microsoft mouse had problems because of the drivers. It seemed to work better in windows....

    WOW, the OP just asked for some help, not a "Apple fanboys bash Microsoft" thread.

    I'm don't think you understand what hardware is.

    To the OP: Most folks (including myself) have had no trouble using MS mice (or other third-party hardware) with their MBPs. I really love my MS BT 5000 mouse; it's just the right size for a travel mouse and I've never had trouble with it randomly disconnecting. The fact that you're also having trouble with your wireless keyboard suggests that there might be a problem with the bluetooth on your laptop.

    If you believe this, then why get a Mac? Mac≠Microsoft.

    Having similar issues. Have a MS Notebook 8000 Presenter mouse which I love and has worked on every other machine I have. It "works" on my Pro, but it does stutter and can be a PITA.

    I've thought about just getting the Magic mouse to see if the results vary, but I do use this mouse for the flip-over presentation when I do PPT's. It is very small and handy and I'll lose that if I go magic mouse.

    May just have to learn to live with the lag. It seems to be a common complain of OS X Bluetooth mouse users.

    I LOVE my Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse (model 5000)! Its the most portable, comfortable, and responsive mouse I've ever owned.

    Everything else is crap...

    :)
