    If i decide to buy a bluetooth mouse for my Macbook, will i need to plug in the adapter that comes with the mouse or can i pair the mouse directly with the onboard bluetooth of the Macbook?

    You should be able to do it with the internal bluetooth. This is what I do with my MX900 and Power Mac.

    Ordinarily, the dongles which come with mice (and keyboards too, fwiw) are RF -- and not Bluetooth -- adapters. Bluetooth devices are sold with the assumption your computer is already Bluetooth capable.

    MS 8000 bluetooth mouse comes with a dongle but also works fine with onboard bluetooth on Macs.
