    So, I am in the market for a BT mouse. I love the Magic Mouse but it doesn't make the cut due to 1 thing.. no ability to detect a left and right click at the same time (I am a WoW gamer).

    All that being said my requirements:
    - Bluetooth
    - 3 buttons (preferably only 3, left, right, center)
    - Not too small (notebook size is a bit small, but I would deal)

    USB charging

    Anyone have any options? Seems like this is hard to find out there.

    The Magic Mouse does have the ability to detect a left and right click.

    I fixed my original post, my fault!

    I need the mouse to be able to detect left and right at the same time, not independently. In WoW, holding right button and pressing left, makes your character run. I use this in the way I play.

    Sorry about that. I hope that makes sense.

    i've been looking for the same thing as you. there's not a lot out there as they seem to use their own proprietary dongle which sucks. anyways i found this one, see what you think. i think i'm going to get one as i dont like using a corded mouse for my right-click needs:)

    EDIT- i'm unable to see if middle click would work on this thing, one reviewer on newegg said it didn't work under mac gonna try and figure that out

    here's another one i found:

    here's a bunch on newegg, never found them before:)

    There really aren't many good bluetooth mice out there.

    The Magic Mouse is way to small for my hands, and I have a feeling the orochi would be that way too :(

    I found another that seems to 'fit the bill', but no idea if anyone out there has used it:

    The Razer may also be a good option.

    Microsoft used to have a model 8000 BT mouse with a charging pad and it was horrible. The scroll wheel was awful, I wonder if the 5000 is about the same?

    I use the Razer Orochi. It serves as a BT mouse that is small, but is comfortable in your hand. It also comes with a cable to tether it to your Macbook for more precise controls.
