    Does anyone have any suggestions on a good bluetooth remote for use with the new MacBook Air? I'm not looking for anything too fancy- just something to use to control Front Row, iTunes, iDVD, Keynote, etc. I thought about just using a standard Wii Remote but that might look odd if/when giving Keynote presentations lol. I also looked at the Targus for Mac bluetooth remote but it's a bit pricey at $70! I think they have them cheaper on Amazon but still...

    What do you guys think? I'm sure many of you have found some very creative solutions :D

    I wonder if you can use an iPod touch as the remote, with the apple remote app? Works with Apple TV. It might work with the Air.

    Thanks, I forgot to mention that- unfortunately, the wifi (wireless) here at school is really poor. Also, the network is pretty restricted, so I can't connect to the wireless with my iPhone and use it as a remote. I appreciate the suggestion though!

    Does anyone else have another solution? It would be awesome if I had a remote device to control movies & music from my bed...especially when I have the occasional company.
