    I have tried two BT mice for my Air and both do not respond nearly as well at the USB wireless type. Anyone use a BT mouse that does not go to sleep or stop working? I would rather keep my two USB ports clear for other stuff:apple:

    I've been having good luck with a Logitech M555b. I do experience a rare bit of cursor lag from time to time, but overall it's been a good experience.

    Why would you want a mouse with a MBA or MBP? One of the most brilliant parts of any MB is the multi-touch pad!

    My MBAir is all Windows 7 Pro and I hate the trackpad. Don't get your feelings hurt but it is not for me.

    For general use I wholeheartedly agree... but when working on graphics, I prefer a mouse. I have a Motorola bluetooth mouse and it works great with my MBA when I need it.

    EXACTLY!

    I use AutoCad and PhotoShop and the touchpad is less than desirable.

    For other things the touchpad is good and I love the large size.

    I prefer a mouse when working. The trackpad is nice for using the MBA on a plane or in a meeting, but my preference is a mouse.

    My MBA setup while working @ home is an external 23" monitor, bluetooth keyboard & mouse with the MBA in clamshell mode.
