    There are bluetooth adapters that plug into USB ports on computers that don't have bluetooth, but nothing that plugs into a non-bluetooth mouse to make it work with bluetooth. Your mouse doesn't have a port to plug anything into it.

    I'm guessing he means plugging his USB mouse reciever into a USB-->Bluetooth adapter. This would free up a USB port on the computer. Other than that, I don't see a huge benefit.

    Since the MacBook Pro has bluetooth built in, there would be no benefit to having a USB > bluetooth adapter. He would still be using a USB port. He wants to avoid having to plug anything into a USB port, but what he's asking can't be done, since the mouse can't accept a bluetooth receiver.
