    I was wondering if anyone knew the answer to my problem

    I just found my old microsoft wireless notebook optical mouse 4000, it comes with a usb plug in that says its a blue tooth adaptor. I hate having anything like that plugged in, especially as my MBP has built in bluetooth.

    Has anyone managed to connect these microsoft mice via the built in bluetooth?
    Or am I going to have to stump up the money for the magic mouse?

    Have you tried? It will not hurt to just try you know? I don't recall the model name but I have connected a BT mouse to my mac without a dongle though it did come with one.

    If the mouse is Bluetooth and the USB dongle is truly a Bluetooth receiver, then you shouldn't need it. A Bluetooth mouse will link directly to a computer with Bluetooth built in. The dongle is only for computers that don't have Bluetooth on board.
