Well, I don't have a BlueTooth mouse yet, but both myself and a friend of mine (I have a MBP, he has a MB) are considering getting a Logitech v270. It looks like a good mouse, great reviews everywhere.

I have the macally BTMOUSEJR. It's not bad, but there's no on/off switch and it eats through batteries. I should get a Mighty Mouse (horizontal scrolling yay!) and some rechargeable.

I have the mighty mouse BT and it kicks so much ass you would not belive.. seriously this is the best mouse I've ever used.

i use the Radtech one (it's marketed as BlueTake BT500 down here) - it was extremely cheap compared to everything else that was around at the time - and it works well. It's very small, which takes some (hand-cramping) time to adjust to but very portable. Battery life is not too bad and it's esay enough to carry a spare set of AAAs in any case.

Just a head's up... Microsoft's Bluetooth Intellimouse Explorer doesn't have full functionality in Mac OS X. No idea why... they're just dumb I guess :/

Otherwise it's my favorite mouse.

I definitely can vouch against a MM, although I haven't had experience with the BT version. Logitech and Microsoft mice are superb. There have been other threads, too, where users have posted their complaints with the MM.

Based on the BT Mighty Mouse comments above, I'm interested in possibly getting one. Can someone comment on the battery life? I've scoured the docs on Apple's site; I did a support search just for manuals and I can't locate a user guide/manual for the BT Mighty Mouse (that alone pisses me off considering Apple is pretty forthcoming with documentation in my experience).

So, to the people that own one: what's the battery life like? A week, two weeks, or much less? Not a big issue with me since I can get AA batteries most anywhere on the planet (and I live in Las Vegas which isn't 24 hours like the commercials want you to think but I can still get batteries from the Walgreen's 2 blocks away 24/7), but I'd be curious to know other's results.


And, if you do own the BT Mighty Mouse *and* you happen to be using Windows of some kind with BootCamp on an MB or MBP, do you get full functionality with Bluetooth and Windows? Just curious as I'm about to purchase a 15" MBP... taking the plunge after all these years. :)
